The W Family Chronicles

I am alive!

Posted on: December 22, 2007

I survived the litho.  I’ve already passed most of the stone, which is GREAT news…I am unlikely to keep having pain on Christmas.  At least I’m praying that is the case!  Right now I’m still pretty high b/c the anesthesia has taken *forever* to really wear off.  I’ve slept a lot and watched a lot of movies that have been languishing on the DVR.

I am *so* glad that we were already done with Christmas shopping!  I just need to make a quick run to the grocery store for stocking stuffers tomorrow and possibly a shrimp cocktail tray for our Christmas Day brunch.

Since it’s just the 4 of us, we’re keeping the meals low key.  Christmas Eve Dinner was ordered from Home Bistro (fabulous food…highly recommend it!) and Christmas Day will be all about brunch and snacking.  Breakfast foods, fresh fruit, and lots of appetizers.  Since J doesn’t eat anything and C will just eat a little of whatever the D and I eat, it seemed silly to go all out.  I am especially glad now that I decided to keep it simple…considering I can still barely stand up and walk across the room, making a huge spread seems to be a monumentally bad idea!

W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
