Happy December 1st Sparkfam!! Its a VERY brisk Wednesday here in Chicago & I was bundled up but did I miss those buttons that happened to fall off my dress coat today! Let me tell you I wore an under jacket & long sleeve shirt & the heat in the truck was slow to warm. BRRRRRRR is all I can say. So its my hubby's 42nd b'day & I woke up & told him "Happy Birthday!" Guess what? He was so busy getting ready for work that he almost forgot but heaven help us if we had not called him later in the morning to express our glee over his birth.
My daughter got me a nice card for him & I got him a Jack Lalane juicer which is on its way & the kids got him a funny b'day card & a black insulated hoodie from A.J. Wright. The hoodie is all the rage these days but the juicer is for his health. He has wanted one of those & the PX90 for the longest. Maybe PX90 for us both on Christmas or the Rosetta Stone are possibilities? So I did loads of walking getting him a double chocolate cake from Portillo's. They are all over but if you have one near you, you have got to get one of those to take to the party with a gallon of milk. I know the recipe but its so much easier to pick up the cake at the store done.
I've been helping my daughter who has a class in the evening Monday & Wednesday after work by keeping my grandson overnight. It helps her get some rest & do her homework. I don't normally keep him for nights as I am a firm believer in you have to raise your own child/children so you blame yourself for all their mistakes. lol But no, I love keeping him but he likes to stay up til 11pm & I like to be in bed by 10pm. I hope I'm getting Juicy Couture for Christmas or MoMo (what Israel calls me) gone feel unappreciated.
I have been so busy with him that I almost forgot that today is also the 13th anniversary that my mom has been gone. She was such a strong tower in my life & she prayed a righteous prayer all the time. She is my she-ro FOREVER! She raised us all to be decent christians no matter which way we went & she did it as a divorcee. I sent my family a very nice but sad text but I was glad to remind them of today. I also added my aunts 2 cousins but forgot my uncle. He was so cool! I miss him too. It was tough but we had so many great times I pray my own children we will remember the times.
So its hump day & I didn't dance but boy oh boy did I HUMP!!
So I am dancing now for the beautiful people & things in life. I pray you are too!!
God bless & I pray you dance. . . . .
