Happy Holidays! Our Christmas was absolutely wonderful, and hope yours was too! Many happy things went on during the past few days.
Christmas Eve started with breakfast out with my youngest son, Chris. He has turned into quite a good young man. He makes me very proud. Dinner that night was at the restaurant where my nephew works. It was wonderful seeing how much his coworkers like him. Surprisingly, at the end of the meal my sister’s boyfriend Sean proposed. I can now call him my brother in law instead of referring to him as my sister’s boyfriend!
I still had things to do to get ready, so after we got home from dinner we finished things up while watching wrestling. I love how Jeff just goes along with me, showing a real interest in what I like and what I do, even if it is something as silly as wrestling. Not that I think it is silly by any means, but I am sure my point is coming across. He is a good man and I am very lucky. That night as we exchanged presents, I realized even more how blessed I am to have him in my life. I have mentioned how I miss being able to watch the news while I make dinner. So he bought me a small tv that we are going to put on top of the microwave. I am very happy he takes my wants into consideration. He got me a whole bunch of beautiful and perfect gifts, including promise rings. They look like an engagement ring, and a wedding set. Technically they are not what they appear to be, yet we are viewing them as a promise to have our future together. They are very pretty and very sparkly. Santa also brought the boys quite a few gifts, and they got their Dad a mug. It was a happy day.
On Christmas Day we drove to Amanda and Kevin’s. It was their first time hosting our Holiday gathering, and they did great! The food was delicious, and the whole day was wonderful. Lots of great presents were exchanged, and again we all realized how truly lucky we are. We got home late, and fed the boys – they got extra tuna with their food. After all, it WAS Christmas!
Back to reality today, sadly. Time to get the oil changed in my car, and then I will need to get this place cleaned up. There are too many messes all around here. The focus has been getting ready for Christmas, as it should have been. But now it’s got to be business as usual.
How were YOUR holidays?
