carving out time

Today I am taking some time to go hang out with a friend.

Last year my friend Denise was telling me that when she was little that she would go over the Anheuser Bush stables and look at all the clyesdales dressed up for Christmas. Today we are going to get together and go over to the stables. Denise said that she has not been there in 10 years so we are not sure what we are going find. But if we just spend a few hours driving around and talking .... well that would be fine.

I got up this morning to the smell of rotten trash. I have no idea what was in that can but man it stunk! I guess today I will have to wash all of the trash cans out.

I actually got another child support check last week. I still under a penny a day for the girls, but I am not going to look a gift horse in the mouth. However I can't find one of the checks. So I will also get the great pleasure of looking for this check.

Amber leaves for Costa Rica in less then a month! I think I am more excited then she is. I so wish I was going on these trips. Amber has the opportunity to go to Egypt over Christmas break next year. I think she should go, but Amber is not sure. I wish I would have had these opportunities when I was her age.

Friday night is opening night for the Christmas play. I am going to take Nikki flowers on that night! I am so proud of her.

I am kinda hoping that we get snow this year. About five years ago we actually got snow. Granted we had to drive up the mountain about a mile. I want to go play in it and then come back home and be warm. It has been very cold already this year so snow just might come.

Yesterday my exema started acting up. I swore I was going to scratch my leg off. I have dried everything and nothing helps when it flares up. I guess I will just need to stop complaining and deal with it.

Well my day is calling me so I better get moving.

I had a friend years ago that had exema really bad, to the point where she bled alot, and the only thing that slowed it down, believe it or not, was a few trips to the tanning booth.  I hope you get to try it and I hope the Clydesdale's are wonderful to see. I imagine they will be.  Enjoy your day with your friend.  Tell Nikki to BREAK A LEG!

wouldn't we all take more advantage of "things" if we could redo our youth?

Oh, I hope you can take photos of the Clydesdales, so we can all see them.  I didn't get to see them at the fair this year and I look forward to that every year. I wish you could go to Egypt, too.  You remind me of my sister losing your check.  She has lost more checks and other precious papers than anybody I know and spent hours lookin'.  But she is so funny, the minute she sits down with you after you go somewhere with her, she will say, "Oh, I lost my keys!"  so then she does a search because she can't rest until she's got them located again, but she might misplace them again before we get back n the car again.  She went through a spell where she would turn on the car lights when she left it.  Her son finally made a bell that would ring if she left them on when she left so the battery would not run down.  She has a quirky memory needless to say.  She inherited it from my aunt Nethella.  Yes, this can be passed in the genes!   Gerry

Hope you get your snow. We don't get it very often here and when it does everyone goes ape. A few years ago we just got a few flurries and everyone was in their yard on their cell phones. lol Paula
