12/24 - "I'm feeling a little up and down today. Up because we are home and the boys are so excited to celebrate Christmas at home and we don't have to travel all over the place. This is our first Christmas ever at home.
Sad because this is the first Christmas ever without family. It kinda doesn't feel the same. We always spend Christmas day at my parent's house. I miss that tradition and I miss our family :("

12/30 - For you Texas/McKinney folks - I'm not impressed with Methodist McKinney Hospital. Their billing is awful. We go there and pay a facility charge, then have to pay a physician charge as well, and it so happens, though the facility takes BCBS, the doctor does not and so we are supposed to pay nearly $200 out of pocket, after a $300, facility charge - after insurance. Seriously? Not only that, they sent our first bill to collections on accident, before a month even passed.
My son only had the area over his eye glued. We were in an out in about 10 minutes after we go through the wait in the ER.
I was very happy with Craig Ranch ER last time we went and had no issues with billing. If we have any more ER visits, we won't be going to Methodist McKinney. Craig Ranch was kid friendly and we had no billing issues.
Rant done. :("
12/31 - "Can't believe it is 71 with a high of 75 today and I'm in shorts. What a way to bring in the New Year!"
"Quiet night at home tonight. Everyone have a safe and happy New Year!"
