Ah yes! Sliding into the holiday swing of things. And my calendar is getting full again. :-)
It's all good. It's really nice to be busy around this time of the year. But not too busy that you forget what it's truly all about. I know that tends to happen sometimes. Especially when you are jockeying for that position in line to check out. Or just waiting to be waited on by an overworked retail person. Just remember your fellow humans this holiday season...kindness really does go a long way.
*climbs down and puts away soapbox*
My son was in a car accident last week. He's ok as well as the friends he was with. We did have to go to the ER being that his friends said that Ry passed out for several minutes after the impact. So we waited for 6.5 hours to get a scan done of his head to make sure nothing was wrong. During the time we waited, he got a headache and started feeling sick to his stomach. I informed the triage nurse of this but it didn't seem to speed up the urgency for anyone to see him. When we decided to announce that we were leaving the ER because we had been there for SIX AND A HALF HOURS, all of a sudden his name was called to go into the actual ER. Imagine that! Still took an hour to get tests done, read, reported and discharged. *sighs* Now we wait for what the insurance companies will say for all of this. Little does my son know that whatever monies he recieves will go to get him registered for college. Momma's tired of her slacker!!!!
My daughter turned 17 on Monday (24th). We took her and her friends out to eat. It was what she asked for. No major celebration or party. It was her and 3 of her friends. We all had such a good time. She says she had a good time because she knew she was surrounded by people that cared, truly cared about her. Teenagers are very very fake nowadays (save this subject for another blog post..LOL!) Her best friend that she's known since they were 5 or 6 showed up at our house close to Midnight on Sunday with a small birthday cake so that she could surprise Jessa and be the first one to say Happy Birthday to her. As for momma, it's hard to believe my baby is now 17. It's so crazy how the years fly by.
I am off to my cousin's house tomorrow for Thanksgiving. I am looking forward to playing with their small children. OH! and eating delicious food, of course. I will be fixing a seven layer salad, mashed potatoes, gravy & cranberry sauce. MMMM, sounds good so far huh??
Happy Thanksgiving, Y'all!!!
