Please Don't Go
Yes, my fur-kids are being silly and cute again. This time it was Teddy, my 20-pound black kitty. I think he was trying to tell his dad that he was going to miss him (or, he wanted to go visit Georgia b/c he's been missing living there)! Good thing Aron noticed him inside his suitcase before he zipped it up!

The Last One
Tomorrow is my last craft event for 2007. And whatta a busy year- I'll have done 16!

Snap, Crackle, Pop
On my seemingly never-ending quest for headache relief, I tried something new today: I went to a chiropractor. I've been going to acupuncture once a week since July and it had seemed to help until recently. Despite being poked with needles, drinking my custom herbal tea, and doing yoga, I've still been feeling crappy a lot of the time. So, on the advice of my acupuncturist, I got my bones manipulated. I'd never been to a chiropractor before and was kinda scared, but I figured it would be worth it if it helps me feel better. Dr. Dave was very friendly and seemed to genuinely care about my problems. Since I'm rather petite at just under 5 feet tall, I was worried he might break me! But, he was as gentle as he could be. I will say that feeling and hearing the bones in my back and jaw popping was not nearly as pleasant as acupuncture! (Hah, I never would've thought that I would consider being stuck with needles relaxing!) I'll see Dr. Dave again on Friday for another adjustment. I sure hope it works!

P.S. Thank you Aron for going with me! You're the bestest hubby in the whole world!

The Festival of Lights
I can't believe Hanukkah starts tomorrow night; it's so early this year! The good thing about it's timing is that Aron gets to spend Hanukkah my family and then he goes to Georgia to spend Christmas with his family. I can't wait to eat some of my mom's delicious latkes!
