Yesterday, I addressed Christmas cards in the morning while watching two of my grandkids. In the afternoon while they were napping I made 5 of the envelope pouches. Today I made a dozen (I have a total of 36 to do) more before 5 grandkids. I had them this afternoon so nothing else was done.

Today, I pulled fabric and cut out rectangles for 36 zippered pouches. Then I sewed on "labels" onto each pouch. Then I went through my stash of zippers and matched,. Now I am ready to sew. These are for my grandchildren. I am making a "piggy bank" consisting of 4 envelope pouches - labeled "spend", "save", "give" and the fourth one will have their name on it and hold the three small ones. This is to help them learn how to handle money. Also, we are going to have a project for them to save for next Christmas. We will have a "Jesus" stocking where they can put their "give" money to go towards helping Tomorrow Clubs.

I noticed I hadn't gotten our health insurance bill for next year, so I called DH's former employer to ask, both of the women who had handled heath insurance billing have retired, their replacements aren't returning my calls. Usually we get the bill in November, if it isn't paid by Dec 31 it's canceled, whether or not they sent a bill. I'm not sure what to do.

It has been busy here now that my daughter and her family have moved in. Last week they were gone to a mission orientation, so I had the kids. Yesterday I planned out what I needed to get done by Christmas - oh my! only a week left.

Mom got her hearing aids! We waited too long to get them, though, she doesn't understand why there is something in her ears. The audiologist said she has dry earwax, the kind that has to be removed by a doctor. Sigh. Another appointment that will require assistance.

I know. I'm trying to be philosophical about moving in the middle of rainy winter. It's 1-2 days of in the rain versus the months of waiting (and hoping) for another apartment in the warmer months.

I'd definitely be suspicious that it's more sales than safety with the executive director involved. They're bringing the big guns. (giggle) Unfortunately, people do fall for it.

The nurse and executive director tried to tell us they were worried about Mom's safety and dignity. Do people really fall for that? I'm skeptical of any sales pitch, this one was so obvious it was almost funny.

My oldest daughter and her family moved in with us today. They will be living with us until they head to Romania as missionaries.

Grocery shopping and nursing the cold I got from the grandsons. Thanksgiving--the holiday that keeps giving. LOL

After the cancellation of my bus route, I was able to find alternative transportation and did make it to my daughter's place Wednesday afternoon. Bitter cold, so walks were minimal but we had a good time with family games and movies. I'd swear the boys have grown a lot since I saw them in July. Trip home was uneventful and kitty was glad to see me when I walked in the apartment. Definitely one of the best Thanksgivings!

I got the tables up from the basement! the heavy job is done. The turkey went into the brine at 7. I'm as ready as I can be.

My poor oldest son isn't going to be able to be here. He worked a 12 hour shift, was supposed to be off for 12 hours before going back in (after eating dinner with us), but the next group never showed. He does 16 hour shifts often, but a 24 hour shift is going to be tough, and I don't know if anyone can do the 36 hours they seem to want him to do and not make mistakes.

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!

Good luck with your checkup. Yep, the weather is not cooperating with travel this year.

The bus tracker doesn't look hopeful; weather has cancelled part of the route. So, I'm waiting to see if they will pick up with a new bus or if my trip is cancelled also. Fingers crossed.

That's an excellent compromise.

Since I'm leaving tomorrow for my daughter's and don't know when I'll be able to get on the computer, I want to wish everyone "Happy Thanksgiving!" I have my blogs prepped and ready to post, but I doubt I'll be able to get on the teams' message boards. I'll see you when I get back.

It's a tough spot to be in, I'm not trying to break my brother and his girlfriend up, I'll leave that to his sons. I just don't think a thief should need to be welcome in the home of a victim of her theft. Letting bygones be bygones means my not letting the the theft remain in my conscious mind, it's gone, but I still don't want her in my home as if nothing had happened. In any case, my brother called and asked if he could just come by for dessert on Thanksgiving, that's fine by me, a good compromise.

What a tough spot. If they've been together for 10 years, I really wonder if he's unaware; he's not going to give up on her now. Family dynamics are hard enough but they become even harder when the source of stress is an outsider. Somewhere along the line, you may need to decide what's more important: having your brother in your life or not having her in your life. I don't think you're going to get both. Good luck.

If family connections are to be maintained, the family, including him, may need to come together, let him be heard and establish some ground rules. Maybe even a mediator may be needed. But, after the holidays when emotions are more level.

My brother called me yesterday, he asked if he could bring his girlfriend to Thanksgiving, the one who stole $1200 from me, and who has chosen to stay away for the last 10 years. I said that wouldn't be a good idea, I don't even know why she would want to be around people who look at her and see "thief". Why would she even want to return to the home of the people she had robbed? He told me that he might not come, either. How can he be that self unaware?
