Its "OK" Thursday 12/27

Its Ok Thursdays
"Its OK"

-That I got my husband a branding iron for his barbecue. He is the grill master. He couldn't wait to try it out so he branded our turkey. He loved it.

-That I told my mother that I went to the turkey farm, saw all of the turkeys running around and branded the one I wanted. She believed me.

This is what I dealt with while taking my mom shopping. She is a goof.

-That I got to watch my favorite baby open presents on face time. Last year she would not even touch the presents. This year she couldn't get enough. She would rip open anything that was there. Every time she opened a present she would say "wowwww". She then proceeded to talk to me while the phone was on her mothers lap. Her face was upside down and she kept saying "hi" "hi". She really is the cutest.

-That my very dear blogging friend surprised me with some beautiful new ornaments. She is too sweet. Thank you again Kathe!

-That I got everything I wanted and more. Thank you family and the son I never had.

-That I made 12 cheesecakes in a week. I made one for myself and still have not even cut into it yet.

-That the son I never had will be coming back today to join us for trivia tonight. Weather permitting of course.

-That I will be taking down all of my decorations today except for my tree. I want to enjoy it for another week.

-That I really don't like putting away all of my Christmas Lenox. It is so pretty and out for such a short time. I have been around for a long time and have been collecting it since the beginning of my marriage. I have quite the collection.

One of my favorite things to put out. My husband doesn't let me put baby Jesus in the creche without the hay. I like it without because it makes less of a mess. He always wins.

-That the only thing I can think of that i didn't get, I will be ordering today.

-That I finally got the go ahead to book my tickets to visit my favorite baby for her second birthday in a few weeks. Between my vacation and the visit, I will probably only be home about one week next month.

-That my daughter is taking me for a spray tan before my vacation. I hope I don't end up looking like an oompa loompa.

-That I am going to need that vacation. I am working three whole days next week.
I worked the day after Christmas. That was probably the only time I did not like my job. It was so hard to go in.  I will be taking so much time off, how could I say no when asked to work? We cover each other which is really nice. I am working New Years Eve and there aren't very many appointments on the book. The good thing is, I can close up when I want.

-That we got my son another xbox for Christmas. I haven't seen him since.

-That my daughter is on forced vacation this week. She can only work so many hours. I have the next few days with her before she goes to her boyfriends for the weekend. I am hoping to fit in seeing Breaking Dawn part 2 and possibly some ice skating.

-That I am sad that Christmas is over and that the regular football season is almost over. We are in the playoffs however, so that is good.

-That I would love to shop some of these great sales that are going on but I am just too shopped out. I am sure my husband will be glad about that. I think I wore the strip off of his credit card.

-That this helped me get through the holiday season. I will be sad putting away my Christmas glasses too.

Have a great Thursday!
