Mr. & Mrs. David Moody Happy 12th Anniversary to us! WOO HOO!
Now granted this was not the day we eloped.  As sad as it is we forgot all about taking pictures on our wedding day!  Dan you believe it???  So on Christmas Eve we always spend that with his mother & family & Dave stands up & says "Family I have something to tell you! I found out later they thought he was engaged, but never in their wildest deams did they think their precious 42 yr. old bachelor would be married.  WRONG!  SHOCK isn't really the word to use.  The Christmas day at my house we broke it to the kids that we eloped, and they were all happy for us because they knew how happy I was.   These pics were taken six months later almost to the day June 24th and we exchanged vows in front of a priest this time in our backyard with Mom present.  It was her only baby boy who had never been married, so we had a wedding with cake, and throwing of the bouquet & all.  AND IT RAINED ALL DAY!  SHEESH!

Dr. Mary Gordon to the left & myselfHi, this is my cardiologist, and lately I've had a few problems and I believe I owe my readers a few explanations, and I'm going to try and make them short & sweet.  Last week I had a bad reaction to some new meds, but long story short this wonderful lady got me on the right track & I'm doing fine now as far as that's concerned.

Right after my appointment we had lunch in North Aurora & I met up with "Glitterbabe" (Steph & good friend), and NightOwlMama (my daughter), and we had lunch at Harners. We had a great time I must say. Steph gave me some of her wonderful, gorgeous cards (by the way they're all used up already they are to to precious), and I gave her some art stuff for her cards & my daughter got a free lunch & will have to wait for Christmas (I'm such a mean mommy).  There was a great time to be had I must say.  Tricia never met Steph, but they hit it off well.  

Now my days are a little mixed up, but I believe that's when my dark cloud rolled in.  I lost my close cousin Dom, and then a few days ago I lost my brother's wife Linda, my sister-in-law.  Sunday was the wake & Monday was the funeral.  So I would like to apologize here and now to all my readers/followers for Monday's Music Moves Me for not being present today, but the Funeral wasn't the only reason.  Saturday I had an accident.  I slipped & fell on my stairs while I was sweeping a bit of snow. I slipped cracked my head on the stairs & yelled for Dave.  He was in the house in the study, which is on the other side of the house & couldn't hear me.  I cracked my head so hard I saw stars & my head & butt was really hurting & I was sitting on a very wet stair & driveway.  I yelled & nothing.  My dog was out with me & I tried to tell the dog to go get Daddy, but I only frustrated her more.  I couldn't move from the waist down & I did finally reach the broom I had & started banging on the railing & still nothing.  I yelled, and I cried & still no Dave.  Finally about 20 minutes later a little girl about 12 was walking her dog & my dog barked at hers & caught her attention to me on the ground.  She yelled are you alright?  No, could you come over and ring my door bell & get my husband?  She did & he came out & tried to pick me up and when he put his arms under my arms & back & tried to lift I heard another crack & I whispered in his ear 911.  He ran inside (he was only wearing a robe & I thanked the little girl. & said she could go.  I was freezing & asked for a blanket & Dave came out after putting clothes on & the ambulance was there. They got me on a gurney & in the ambulance.  I guess I was so cold my veins collapsed & they couldn't get a IV INTO ME.  

Anyway, shorten the story some here I'm alright.  I woke up with a New Years Eve hangover & coconut bump to the head, but nothing broke except my pride.  I did make it to my SIL wake with the help of a walker, some drugs & my husband not to mention my eldest son by my side the whole time, but didn't make the funeral due to all the dam drugs I'm on.  So, I will visit my 4M followers/friends from yesterday soon.  I will not let you down, but a big thank you goes out to Denise DMT for covering for me if she got my message and the rest of my co-elves for holding down the fort.  Lorie, Callie & Stacy!  Love you guys!  and MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!  HUGZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
