Thankful Thursday....

Here's the round up of things that are on my mind that I am thankful for:

1.) My amazing husband. He puts up with me when I'm grumpy, he's forgiving when I screw up, and I can count on him for anything. I love you so much babe!

2.) This time of year. I love the music, the entertainment, the smells of the holiday food and flavors.

3.) That I have the ability to save ahead for Christmas gifts. It really helped out this year.

4.) That I got to see my nephews over Thanksgiving break. They all have gotten so big.

5.) Caffeine. I really, really, REALLY need it this morning.

Wonderful Wednesday...

Okay. I took a week off of work so that I can burn some vacation time. Use it or lose it baby! So that's what I did. And tomorrow is my first day back. And I feel like throwing a tantrum. I DON'T WANNA! I DON'T WANNA! I DON'T WANNA! Okay, now that I got that over with I'll just suck it up.
We went to Hot Springs, AR to go see my dad and step mom. It was such an amazing trip. I loved it. The mountains were just so beautiful. Every which way I looked it was just breath-taking. One night Christopher and I went out to eat and he decided to drive us to the lake to go see the dam. It's so pretty in the moon light but DANG it was so cold. The cold wind off of the cold lake water, so glad that I had my Marmot jacket in the car. There's no way that I would have stood that close to the water without it.
On the way there we rented a of RedBox movie. I am so thankful for travel DVD players. Without those we would have had a more melt downs. Actually I need to be fair, Claire got fussy a few times, but she didn't have total melt downs.
So now this momma is going off to bed so that she can drag her butt out of bed and get her exercise on. So good night all, and may God bless you and yours.

Manic Monday...

Today was a pretty good day. I got to work in town! That was awesome. AND....I only have a 2 day work week this week (be very jealous). Tomorrow is going to be a busy day after work, but we'll tackle that later.
I got home walked through the door to Claire hiding under covers. I had to play along "Claire? Where are you Claire?". She had fun with that. In fact she had so much fun with that that she jumped up to say "Here I am!" and knocked over red kool-aid onto my carpet. So I soaked it up the best I could and then thought to myself; "Hey! I can try out that stain remover that I found on Pintrest!".

It's still wet, I'm hoping the ring goes away. I soaked it up until it was almost dry and then blotted, and then scrubbed, even did a little outside the lines of the stain. Just hoping that it worked.
