The grandchildren are back in their own home, Mom is back and life continues on. Grama and Papa made it, all our fingers and toes are still intact, maybe minus a few hairs (wish it was the grey ones) but life is getting back to normal. Next time I think a nanny will be in-order, or straightjackets, either for them or me. Nah it wasn’t that bad! Some behavioral issues, some sleepless nights and a house filled with colds.
It is now Tuesday and the final gift wrapping is completed. Yes you read that right, I have purchased and wrapped all my Christmas gifts – a big high FIVE! I am done. Even have all the Christmas cards waiting for December to be mailed. So on the ball this year it scares me, really scares the hubby, he is waiting for those credit card bills. Nope don’t have those either, but it will be our little secret, maybe he will budget me some money to pay them and I can pocket it. And then a Christmas shopping I shall go for me.
Also between you and me and of course the WWW I have a new passion. My daughter has been on this bandwagon since I think day one, but I have just really embraced it; shoes. Not just any shoes, TOMS Shoes. Last week I just received three more pairs giving me a total of I am thinking eight pairs now and more on order. They are just so comfortable and so cute, lots of choices of patterns and styles. Now I have learnt that I am a size 9 ladies so order 9 1/2 and they are perfect, but if you did have to return don’t worry at all, those people at Toms are wonderful. And I also have a pair of their TOMS sunglasses, saving for holidays, very sharp looking eyewear. Really nice and no one else is currently sporting them around our little neck of the woods. Thanks TOMS! They sent them to my daughter for all her support she does for TOMS, and she gave them to me. She does tend to buy a pair of TOMS shoes, or TOMS apparel, every other week, usually for others.
With Christmas all wrapped up the question is “Now what”, well I really don’t know. Get the house back to normal from the grandchildren? Start packing and organizing for holidays? Take some time for me and us? So much to do and so little time, who am I kidding, I have pretty much all the time in the world. But time sure does get away from me. Before I know it the grandchildren are here after school looking for snack and Wii, yes they may not live here but they sure spend a fair amount of time here. We don’t mind, just like giving them and my daughter a hard time.
She isn’t herself today, another dental appointment and another tooth pulled. She looks like a little chipmunk in pain. Told her to brush when she was little, they just never listen. Actually I believe today was another wisdom tooth. Which makes me ask the question, “Why do we have wisdom teeth if they are just going to be pulled out when we get older, do they have a purpose?” Would love to hear your thoughts on this one.
Off I go to get the grandchildren from school, thinking Mom is resting and taking a bit of time for herself; lying in bed with a warm compress against her face, at least that is what she better be doing. Have a wonderful day and chat with you soon.
