Things are heating up

O.k. I mean that literally. Got the heater working finally. My brother was a godsend and actually called me back and came down here to look at my heater. Thought it was going to be bad because he was mentioning a new heater motor blower thing and stuff like that. But what he ended up doing was tightning the belt that was squealing, oiled the motor parts, and replaced the filter that was so disgusting I'm probably going to have nightmares about it. It probably hasn't been changed since sometime before mom was diagnosed with cancer if that tells you anything. So, it still isn't a great heater, but it's at least trying. Just checked the thermostat and it's reading about 72 now. Yipppeeeee!
I have been working on photo albums all day. Got my brother's done. Still need to do my sisters and my nephews. I made a photo frame thing for my cousin. After all that is done, I'll be finished with my Christmas stuff.
Josh and I still need to practice. I hope I have some decent reeds. I haven't picked up my clarinet in over a year since mom's memorial service last November. Guess I need to see if I can still play.
I've still successfully avoided doing any kind of yearbook work as well. I really need to do some of that, but perhaps when I'm in Albuquerque.
I am sooooooo ready for Marty to be here. This is the longest we've had to go so far in seeing each other since July. I know I have to get used to it because he'll be gone a full year. But I don't have to like it.

I am going to be so busy over the next few days, but I didn't want to let the time slip by without saying Merry Christmas. Enjoy your time with your family and Marty. Sorry to hear about his Alaska assignment. Will you be able to go there to visit? Will he have some leave?
