Today I am thankful for a fun day with my hubby. First I balanced the checkbook (not so fun but it balanced the first time through 🙂 and then we cleaned the motor home together and then got out the Christmas decorations…the best part!! We have lights up in the living room, on the tree, down the hall and into the bathroom – it is definitely a Christmas light festival in here oh and Snowflake lights in the living room. The tree is up and Scooby Doo has sang his song a few times and the Christmas bear is sitting guard on the edge of the couch.
We also got some little packages ready for our grands and adopted grands. Will get those in the mail on Monday.
And all the while cleaning and decorating we watched Christmas movies…new ones and old ones…but all with the message of sharing love with others. Exactly what the Christmas season is about.
I am thankful for a loving husband who knows how to help me have a fun even when there are little chores to be done!
Got a text from Max right after work today – “Do you want to Skype?” You betcha!!!!
It was so fun to see Treyson. He now weighs 20 lbs 3 oz and is 27″ long. The size of a one year old. His hair is super blond and he giggles with his eyes. So fun to see.
Christopher was his usual bouncy self. He told me today was a “no school day” and then laughed out loud. And then he showed us a turkey he made with his handprint – I remember when his Daddy and Uncle Jamie made those same kind of turkey’s.
Max was busy playing a Wii game and not much of a conversationalist tonight. Maybe next time.
Danalyn and I were able to visit for awhile which was nice. We don’t get to do that very often. Brandon was busy working on dinner: broccoli – cheddar soup. Sounds yummy.
Again, thankful for the technology of today that lets me spend time with my family even when we are hundreds of miles away.
|These two went to Ed & Bonnie tonight.|

Today I am thankful that I know how to keep my mouth shut!!! Because otherwise I might have blown my top and been fired from my job here at the Lone Star Corral.
I would like to know what makes some people think they are so perfect that they cannot have the grace to allow others to make mistakes and then apologize for that mistake. But no, they wine, mumble so people can’t understand their mumbling and then make snide comments about people not doing their job right.
So I copied something upside down – dang, it didn’t look upside down to me. I apologized, offered to redo it, apologized two more times after some rude comments and then walked back to my desk. And I am not apologizing again. Three times is just plenty.
So yes, today I am thankful that I do know how to control my mouth even when my brain is running full steam ahead and would have liked to have said a huge mouthful.
That’s all for today!
Oh yes, I am also thankful for a loving hubby and good friend who said I handled the situation with grace and dignity.
Yes I am blessed with a wonderful hubby and best friend.
