Sorry for the lack of activity here, but we've been busy around Casa de Fixit. Let me start with a couple of updates.
Mrs. Fixit is doing well. Her original mammogram showed two masses. Repeat tests with digital scanning cleared those as not an issue. However, the digital scan found a new "spot" that they want to further investigate. We waited to hear a bit more from the Dr., and what we heard was "I wouldn't worry too much." So, we are cautiously optimistic, but she will still have further tests to make sure.
Yes there have been lots of hugs. We have always been "huggy", but of late I have made it a point to hold her more often.
Christmas was good around our house. The kids were all smiles. The oldest got a new Ambassador rod and reel combo and was quite pleased. The younger two, in addition to several individual gifts, received a telescope.That my friends is a Meade 4.5" reflector with Auto Star. I love this thing, and so do the boys! The Auto Star feature will find a star, or planet or any of several thousand other objects in the night sky.
They also got Guitar Hero 3, and they rock!
Mrs. Fixit was pleased with her gifts, and I got gift cards. Everyone's happy.
New Years came, and I brought in the new year by fighting a grass fire with my Rookie.
Overall, life is good.
