Well we made to to Friday. Co-worker has been out all week first with her mother in the hospital and then she got the flu there and now her whole family has the flu. Thankfully it's been kinda slow and quiet at work so it hasn't piled the work load heavier.

Am getting things together for my daughter's return. Can't wait! Will take mom out to get some presents on Saturday. Maybe I can find a couple of other gifts I need to get.

Got around 3 inches of snow yesterday morning. It is slushy out on the streets but the fields are beautiful. It looks like Christmas time! It warmed up to the 20's yesterday so that makes it nicer out too!

Off to start the day! Wonder where God will take me today? Wonder who He will put me in contact with?

Brother supposed to get out of the hospital today.

    Isn't it wonderful to have it warmed up to the 20' has here too. So much better than those single digits and negative numbers from earlier this week!!! Sounds like you are a very busy lady. Glad your brother is coming home from the hospital. I know you are excited about your DD coming home. I would be too. Enjoy your mom as you go shopping together tomorrow!!! Stay safe!
Blessings and hugs,

    I love it when it LOOKs like Christmas but you don't struggle on the roads. If they were slushishy, that wasn't bad. Of course at 20 degrees you had to watch for icy patches and it refroze at night? Anyway your tone and voice (can you have a voice on internet) sounds better and I am pleased you were able to come to grips with those resentful feelings. God is good and we are receiving it. LOL & more hugs. brenda (a friend you are being put in touch with) grin.

    I live in the High Desert... yes, desert. It does snow here from time to time, but there isn't usually a lot of moisture. I miss the prettiness of the snow, but not all the cold and driving in it!
I hope you have a great Christmas!

    Have a great day! I had to chuckle when you said it warmed up to the 20's as I live in the Southwest and we had 80 degrees yesterday -- it's hard to feel like Christmas! I still have to get used to seeing palm trees decorated with lights!

Had a good day yesterday. Mom and hubby and I went to celebrate my daughter in laws birthday. We all had a good time. Big storm predicted did not hit. Only a week until daughter is here. Mom twisted my arm and taking her shopping on Saturday for Christmas gifts. UGH! Hoping to use that day to get things done at home...ugh! Gotta get my head wrapped around this one. I don't know what to get my kids much less help her know what to get them....Right now I feel so resentful towards her and I hate that feeling. She can't help it....she doesn't drive...she wants to do something for the kids for Christmas..why do I resent it so? I'm on this jag and I want to work through it and deal with these feelings and get over them. Right now I resent all her demands on our lives. Help me Lord to be a Godly woman to love my mother in law. I don't want to resent her. I want to have fun with her and enjoy these precious times together. i don't want to say anything that I can't take back. Lord soften my heart towards her. Help me not to think of her as a burden and as a blessing.

    Just continue to pray for her and as you have, remember where she is at and how you can bless her. Even if you get giftcards for Wal-Mart or somewhere. It's the time of year and the pressure you're feeling that has increased your stress. She helped make your husband the sweet, loving person he is---give him the responsibility of helping her. No, that wouldn't work either. The gifts don't have to be perfect like I want!! Praying, too, your resentment won't last. LOL Brenda

Wednesday Morning

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

Made it through Wednesday. Neat taking presents to family. Kids were in the basement so they can be a surprise. Hope they enjoy them. Taking daughter in law to Italian Restaurant for her birthday. Found the most gorgeous sleigh with Santa in it that lights up for her hearth. Gorgeous. Can't wait for her to see it. Taking mom with us. Driving to Cincinnati for dinner...about an hour away. Be good for mom to get out and stimulate her some. Looking forward to a wonderful time with family tonight. Eight more days and daughter will be home. Yipee!

Have had a wonderful time with Best Friend and her hubby here. Kinda got snowed in. I had purchased a beautiful ginger jar with gorgeous ornaments in it early this fall and we found two more like it and made one for Best Friend and one for mother-in-law and took it over to her. It made her cry. Think she was having a down day. Their anniversary is coming up and if we don't spend time with her over the weekend..she tends to get down...oh well!

The snow is so pretty.

Off to work co-worker at hospital with her mother and the other girl travels 40 miles where they get lots of snow drifting so may be only one at work today...
