Merry Christmas, Ya'll!  
Hello all! Quick update - Feeling better cough-wise, not 100%, but finally got someone to take some action on a treatment for me. Body is failing me due to many days in bed and inactivity - very bad for the arthritis. Boo that, but it'll stretch out as I get back on my feet, I think. Hoping to maybe get to see The Hobbit some time in the next week, as I haven't felt well enough to go yet. (it's driving me up the walls not to have seen it yet!) Missed most of the family holiday gatherings due to sickness, but other than missing the kids (and not getting The Nephew's project finished) I was mostly okay with staying home for that stuff. Did attend a small fraction of the extended family gathering and that is a whole story unto itself. Also have some therapy stories for you and hopefully my sister will relay enough of her trip this weekend to see The Hobbit with The Nephew for me to make a post on that. I did not get around to Christmas cards this year, but I bought them, so I'll save them and try again next year!

Anyways, I was going to put up pictures of Zippo, The Christmas Queen, for you all, as I did that over on Tumblr, but LJ doesn't seem to want to let me upload any new photos to my scrapbook. Anybody know what's up? It offers me my all-ready made scrapbook albums or a Dropbox option (for which I do not have an account) but no 'upload from computer' or whatever. What's the deal, LJ? So, until I figure that out, it means I can only post pictures I already have loaded. Which I guess means I just have to spam you with every Christmasy picture I have in my scrapbook! Enjoy!

Me too.

When I click on "upload images" and then "browse" I get the option of uploading pics from my desktop to LJ posts. Hope you can get it sorted out.

Happy Holidays!

Me too.

Right? Everyone is talking about it and I keep having to put my fingers in my ears! I am like a week and a half behind on my Flist reading, so I am not sure if you have moved already, but I hope it goes/went okay and that Pip settles in without too many problems!

When I click on "upload images" and then "browse" I get the option of uploading pics from my desktop to LJ posts. Hope you can get it sorted out.

Yeah, that's always been how I've done it, but now it won't give me the 'browse' option. It just takes me straight to my scrapbook albums. I was worried they'd changed something (like now that there is a 'Dropbox' option, I wondered if they partnered with them to force us all to get Dropbox accounts - but if yours works, then mine must just be a glitch).

Happy Holidays!

You too, darling!

Thanks, babe! My Christmas was pretty low-key, which other than feeling kind of crappy, is not a thing I am going to complain about - I like lowkey!

Hope yours was good too!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Hope you're feeling better soon.

You and me both, babe! But hey, this is the second day in a row that I am answering LJ comments, so I have to be improving a little, right?

Hope you and the GF have a great New Years! (I saw you got a job, but I'm still like a week and a half behind on my Flist, so Idk how it's going, but I hope the answer to that is 'good'!)

Thank you! I am feeling better, for sure. Hopefully, I'll be back on my feet soon enough!

Hope your Christmas was good and that your New Years is too!

Thanks! You too! I'm glad you got to spend it with your family this year.

I am slowly feeling better, I can tell - I've just reached the point where I've lost patience with the whole thing. Which is weird, after all the years in this body, you'd think patience is a thing I would have learned by now! Definitely feeling better though, thank you!
