The last two days have been filled with surprise and good news.
We got a package from someone that we have not heard from in a very long time. My former mother in law. I actually gave her a call. It seems that she left her husband and is now living on her own and doing just fine. With out going into a lot of details she even apologized for her sons behavior. We had a good conversation.
Today I took the children down to base to do some shopping. It was nice to drive down there. We all sang Christmas carols and just talked and laughed. We also met up with some friends for lunch and it was so nice to visit with them.
Rusty called me yesterday and he is having a blast in Virginia. I am so happy that he is having a good time and getting paid to do what he likes. Rusty also said that he found the birthday cards that we snuck into his bag! I guess I can still pull a fast one once in a while.
I will need to wrap a few gifts and make dinner. I think we are going to have bacon sandwiches.
For the lady who asked no I did not get the girls any hair ties.
