Magnificient Monday

Monday, December 10, 2012

Had a good weekend. Got a lot of puttering done around the house Saturday. Had nice work dinner Saturday night. Church, lunch with Mom and then off to car rally. I went with another lady..hubby had helped plan the course. Then we did some shopping around. Got gift card for daughter in law's birthday. Found a cute snowman to put on the mantle. Had a nice time with hubby.

Came home and lowered a pair of pants for Mom. I didn't want her to buy the petites a while back but she insisted...,now I'm lowering them because they are water waders. Of course she'd worn them to church (black pants) with white socks so she glowed. She's an interesting creature. But we work with her and love her. Hubby setting up a Christmas tree for her. Been a long time since she's put one up. Ask her if we put up an extra tree we have if she'd let us and then she could decorate it. She said OK so that is on of hubby's jobs today. Although hubby says it makes more work for us...she is able to decorate still if we set it all up and will give her something to do for the holiday. She has decorated some around her house with little trinkets. She seems in pretty good spirits. Try to keep her busy and active during the holidays so they are more pleasant. Asked her what she wanted for Christmas...she said what she can't have...her kids around her. I told her "we're your kids" and she are always Becky. Then I feel bad and talk to hubby about maybe flying her daughter out this summer or something. But he reminded me that maybe we should plan to go to Texas and see the upcoming new Granddaughter coming this summer and see them all at once. He said she has to want to come see her Mom too! Strange family dynamics. I want them all to be one happy family and maybe it just doesn't work that way. So we'll see.

Off to make it a great week!

    Hard to say what crosses a person's mind throughout the wonderful Christmas season. As long as it is not deep and dark depression, we can indeed make this another grand Christmas!

Fantastic Friday!

Friday, December 07, 2012

Had a nice evening with son. He came up to spend the day with hubby. They cut down a few trees in the back yard, burned our brush pile and worked on the truck some. Then I got to come home and we went out for dinner. It was nice to spend some time with him.

Around 15 days and daughter comes home. Planning to get trees decorated this weekend. I have work Christmas dinner Saturday night and car rally Sunday afternoon.

Off to make it a great day!

Terrific Thursday

Thursday, December 06, 2012

Had an evening at home...was nice.

Son is coming up today to spend day with Dad. They are going to work on cutting down some dead trees and hopefully getting rid of our brush pile. Been telling us he'd come up some day and help. It will be nice to have him around. Was going to go out to dinner with them but forgot I have music practise with co-worker and then Praise Team Practise.

Been working on resume. After staff meeting not sure what I want to do...but I don't want to live with will get resume off this week.

Have a Women's Leadership Luncheon today. The Christian School is bringing their choir to sing. Looking forward to the music to get me into the season.

Hoping to get some decorating Saturday morning. Hubby has parade saturday afternoon but told him last night I can't go. I can't do it all and he seems so disappointed. We have our work Christmas dinner that night and I need to practise piano and we have a road rally Sunday afternoon. Can't do it all. Going to start setting boundaries. Hopefully I follow through on that...

Off to make it a great day!

Wacky Me!

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

WOW! Forgot the best home around 9 pm last night and Hubby had the Christmas Tree up...I was amazed. It has been bothering me when I was going to have time to get it up. It isn't decorated but that is the easy part. So thankful! What an awesome husband!

Also our last Bible Study went so well. What a great group and how close we got. They want another one after the first of the year. What a blessing the group has been to me.
