Sitting here tonight thinking about how lucky I am that tomorrow I leave for Austin to spend Thanksgiving with my children. Chad is fixing Thanksgiving Dinner for Christi and myself on Thursday then Friday I will spend the day with by son Clint and his family (my two darling grand babies.) Does not get any better than this.
So many reasons to be Thankful this Thanksgiving. The list is long and you of course are right at the top of it. Another year of friendships that have meant so much to me. Thank you for always being here for me through thick and thin.
Your such a dear for all the precious comments about selling my home. I have been out of the home for a while now living out here on the North Forty and renting it out. It still hit me hard though when I signed the papers Monday morning. Funny how you know its the best thing for you but yet your emotions run wild.
It truly did help knowing that the young man that bought it was thrilled to have a bigger and nicer home for his four children. He has a rough road ahead raising them alone but buying my home will make things a little easier.
You are probably wondering why the picture of the pantie looms in this post. I am sitting here thinking about how much food Chad will be fixing for me and Christi and I just hope that after this week is over I can still fit in my britches. lol Isn't it amazing how much weight one can put on between Thanksgiving and Christmas. So here's hoping we all can fit into our panties after December.
Well enough on that nonsense. I have to tell you a quick story before I have to get off of here and pack my bag for tomorrow.
Last week I went to town to run a few errands and to meet the buyer of my home at the Title Company. While running these errands I noticed I kept pulling up my jeans. Something odd for me since I usually have trouble buttoning them up.
The first two times I pulled them up I did not think much of it. But by the time I arrived at the Title Company I noticed that my pants had slid down to the point of almost falling off. Talk about weird. Here is an old lady walking on Main Street America with pants down her back end like the young people you sometimes see at Wal Mart and you want to go up and grab their pants and give them a big tug. Then lead them to the belt section and purchase one for them.
I kid you not it was scary thinking that my pants were to the point of falling off. Yet I have wore these jeans more times than I can count and yet all of sudden I am close to loosing them. I know the ladies at the Title Company thought there was something strange about me because I kept slipping behind different things in their office so I could give my pants a huge tug. I even slowly eased behind one of their big potted plants to give them a boost up.
The real strange thing about his story is I honestly don't believe I have lost any weight. Pretty sure the scales are the same. So why would these pants all of sudden be so droopy. Maybe their worn out. All I know is I don't think I am brave enough to put them on again. lol I kept thinking how in the world do those kids walk around like this every day. lol
Actually they might just fit after Thanksgiving Day. I might should pack them tonight.
Over the weekend I came down with some kind of bug and it wiped me out. I laid in bed all day Sunday which is something I never do. Of course I panicked thinking it might keep me from the closing but I managed to get dressed and make it. Several of my friends told me that I was going to the closing if I had to crawl there. Do you think they might be tired of listening to all my complaints about horrific renters.
Thankful for you and Thursday when I am giving Thanks for my Blessings You will be there in my thoughts and prayers. Please know I don't take you for granted and I do think of you often.
May You and Your Family Be Blessed this Thanksgiving and whatever your plans please be kind to yourself. Looking forward to visiting your sites and reading about your special holiday.
Love to all
