Droopy Britches!


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
Maggie

Ohhhh! Your beautiful home ... it will once again be filled with many loving stories to share to another family, sweetie. I know how you love that house.

You have a wonderful time with the kids & kid-lings.

Hi Maggie, I know it how you will miss your home, but it is wonderful that you found a buyer with the way things are now. Knowing that you won't have to fix what a renter tore up should be a relief to you. I know that you have faced something that I will probably have to face in the future. Enjoy the time spent with your family and enjoy your grandchildren. They are growing up way to fast. Happy Thanksgiving. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Paula said...

Bet you know where Cedar Park is--- That is where I would have spent Thanksgiving but one of my daughters from there decided to move north of San Antonio and she is going to cook. Happy Thanksgivng to you and yours.

Terra said...

I know you will miss your home but knowing the young man and his 4 children will love it makes it kind of nice. Have fun eating with your family, two Thanksgivings, and keep those baggy pants, just in case.

There is so much to be thankful for this holiday, Maggie! Your house will be filled with new love as this single man and his children move in. And you will be surrounded by the love of your children and grandchildren during the next few days. I hope you have a wonderful, memorable time! Best wishes to you, Chad, Christi, Clint and their families!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your wonderful family. You are on my list, funny how we came across each other so long ago. I still remember that fudge!! The best ever. Have a great visit with the kiddies and travel safe dear friend.

Brynwood Needleworks said...

I can just see you hikin' up yer drawers in the Title office! lol Glad you escaped with your dignity, my friend. I know your home sale is bittersweet, but it will be one less thing for you to worry about now, and perhaps lighten your load a bit.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and looking forward to reading about your next big adventure.
xoxo

Glad you found such a nice buyer. Renting it was turning you gray with aggravation.
I have had that same droopy drawers thing. I resorted to suspenders for around the yard. If I were younger and cooler, I am sure I could turn suspenders into a fashion statement for public wear. You could pull it off.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Maggie enjoying all the good food and hugs.

I hope the new owner finds lots of love and happiness in your former home.
Your Thansgiving plans sound ideal--feasting and family. Doesn't get much better and it is what the day is all about. Enjoy!

Jacqueline said...

Have a safe and wonderful trip/time with your family. Life is good.

Susan said...

I am glad you found a wonderful buyer for your home. Now you can really move on.
You have to really let go of the past to do that. I was a basket case when I moved to my present location...
Shrink your jeans in really hot water. Works for me!
Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy your kids!

I had to laugh at your post title, Maggie, and then your "subtle" ways of pulling up your slipping pants! I'll bet you did lose some weight. I try and stay away from the scale. I know when I've put on weight because my jeans are too tight! I don't need a scale to tell me. : ) I hope you are feeling better. I just got over a bad cold two weeks ago and yesterday felt a swollen gland on my throat.

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving! It sounds like you've got a wonderful one planned with your family.

Julia said...

Eh, sweet Maggie, I don't trust scales but pants don't lie. lol... You must have lots some weight. Cute butts and britches. I'm a little flabby in that department, I'm afraid. lol...

What a great way to open another chapter of your life with loosing weight, signing the closure papers on the sale of your house and having thanksgiving with your family. You are right, it doesn't get any better than that. You don't need that house, just keep the sweet memories.

I've done that yoyo weight thing for years and kept my fatter pants and thinner pants but since I'm walk my butts off these last couple of years working at the farm , I've managed to keep those fat pants tucked away in storage, just in case. lol.

Hope that you have a great Thanksgiving with your love ones.
Have a safe trip to Austin.
Hugs,
JB

Debby said...

Your old house now has a happy family again. It is the closure that bothered you and the good memories. (((((HUGS))))
So glad you get to spend time with those grandbabies again.
You must have lost weight. If so that's great and not to suffer, hah.
We need to talk again after this holiday.
(((((HUGS)))) Have a great holiday.

Maggie M said...

I'm glad you sold your home and hopefully all will continue to be good out there in the country! I'm glad your pants are falling off and I'm jealous because I want my pants to fall off! I'm glad because you get to see your kiddos and have them make a fuss over you and feed you lovely Thanksgiving goodies! Please enjoy! I'm thankful I've found your blog because you always make me laugh...hiding behind the potted plant pulling up your drawers...too funny!

Libbie said...

I was walking through the airport in San Francisco when my pants decided to stop defying gravity. Not sure why - but I made up a new song for the occasion: Hey, there, it's derriere, my pants are falling down!

PEA said...

I'm sitting here with a big smile on my face, knowing that you're with your family as I type this:-) I have no doubts that you are all having a simply marvelous time!!

So glad to hear that the house finally sold and all the paperwork has been signed, sealed and delivered:-) It will be a happy home again filled with the laughter of children.

I had to giggle when I was reading about your pants being so loose all of a sudden...I've actually had that happen to me too! As you say, I don't know how those young kids wear their jeans hanging down their butt like that, it would drive me insane!!!

I feel so blessed to have become your friend on this wonderful blogging world of ours...love you to bits!! xoxox

Cherrie said...

I am so glad very thing is going well for you. I have been missing in action so much lately I need to update my blog. I hope after the first of the year thing settle down around my life.
Have a very Merry Christmas if I don't make it back here before than~

Jennifer Richardson said...

so glad you're moving through the changes with humor and grace,
dear Maggie:)
I'm standing up on the inside
cheering for you
because I know how hard and messy
change can be
and you're braving these wild winds
anyway
and even when your heart trembles
it is courage that I see
and it inspires me so!
love and hugs,
Jennifer

Hi Maggie, your droopy drawers story had me laughing . . . I know that it will be hard to leave your home, but think of it as a new adventure. Home is where the heart is. I hope that your Thanksgiving was a wonderful day, filled with all the love and joy that you could handle.
Best wishes.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)
