Friday Blues

Here it is Friday eveing already. I told Dale this morning that it shouldn't be Friday already, but that if we were still working we would be wondering what took Friday so long to get here. Guess there is no pleasing us... The first full week of November is almost over, and that puts us that much closer to Christmas. I told Dale the other day that I was ready to get my Christmas tree up. Thank God for artifical trees :-) Of course, never fear its still in the garage and we haven't gone bonkers at the Waits household. We thought we would start on a toy box for Alex for Christmas. We are going to undertake to make him one. I have the pattern ordered, so now we just have to cool our heels and wait awhile. That gives me time to get the tree up huh?
We have found that our minds still think like we were 20 years younger than we are, which in a way is a pretty good sign, its our bodies that don't live up to their end of the bargain so it takes us much longer to do things now.
My Sister told me today that she had most of her Christmas shopping done, and done it all in two weeks. She normally buys all the married Grandchildren the same thing, so she just has to decide what she wants and buy ten of them. I guess that way one can't be jealous of the other. I told my brother that they would be better off to just give their grandchildren fifty dollars each and be done with it. His Grandchildren wants IPods. My girls wanted MP3 Players for their birthdays which is in September, so that is what we got for them, at least they were cheaper than IPods. Dale says that if you take notice about all the toy recalls is that they are taking the cheaper things off the market and leaving the high dollar items, he thinks it's a conspiracy. Leave it to an old vet to think of something like that.
Well guess its time to end this blog for tonight, I guess we just have to put our trust in the almighty to take care of us fools. Love to all, Anna
