....if you don't mind - I am going to try and clean up some of my mess in a blog post.
I need to start by thanking all of you for your kind, heartfelt comments - especially regarding my Dad, my husband and the post "Bringing my A Game". If there is one thing the "30 Days of Truth" has shown me is that I have really amazing friends and that I am an incredibly lucky woman. Thank you Tadpoles for always being here for me. You guys truly get me through.
Onto my sodium intake- [::waving at Tessa and Barbara:: hi guys!] - I haven't been posting this for two reasons and don't anyone yell at me [for the second reason] because I am
I have been meaning to post these pics of the wonderfulness I was gifted by my best pal Olde Bagg. Wallene and I received a surprise Halloween box in the mail from her. Just fabulous! Look!:
|See the sign above our wreath - she MADE that.|
That is some talent Tadpoles, let me tell ya'.
What else? Oh! I know I probably shouldn't post this because - meh...it might not come to fruition, but....eek! so excited! Pooldad has promised to take me to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in two weeks. How cool is that going to be? He and I both decided if not now, then when? We are going to order one those Thanksgiving meals that you get at your local grocery store to have when we get home Thursday evening - we figure the day is going to be more about the parade and enjoying New York with the kids then about the food.
Finally - my family is working so hard to get the house in order. We have slacked off for the past few months because of a lot of stuff but now it is all coming together. We are even [gasp!] decorating. I swear - and I think it looks kind of good. We still have to wait on probate in SC before we can pick up all of the stuff from my Mom's estate :( - but Pooldad wants to be ready and it looks as tho' we are going to be. This is also very exciting. Squirrel is going to come home in two weeks [YAY!] and wonder where her old house went and who has possessed her family. Finally, after 4 years, it looks as tho' we actually live here. Sweet. [I do have to add that we are still actively looking for a single story home to better accommodate me but so far no luck.] We just thought we might as well start hanging up stuff if we were ever going to look like we didn't just move in, y'know? Although - I don't think I am done with this because now I need to take pictures and post them so you guys can see all their great efforts.
I hope you all have a great Tuesday. Thanks again for everything Tadpoles. You rock my world!
