I just got in from hottubbing with Carol and Robert. What a great night!!
The kids and I met Doug, directly after he got off work, at Chuckarama, for dinner... my Mom's treat. That was her Christmas gift to the kids...dinner at her favorite place. The kids love it. Quayd eats himself into a coma...no shocker, right? Not my favorite restaurant in town but it beats cooking!
Carol invited us over after but since Doug had to be in bed at 8, he went straight home and took the kids with him. I stayed we took a two hour soak. Robert absolutely cracks me up! He always keeps us laughing! It always feels so great on my foot... the doctor said something about the water pressure and, I believe, he is right!! I can't believe how good it feels...it's about the only time that my foot does not feel like it's asleep.
After much thought, I have decided that I am going to stop wishing away this last little bit of time here in this home. I'm going to enjoy it and plan on moving the last day that our mortgage guy gave us as a possible moving date. That way, I can only be happy if it's sooner than later! I'm going to chill... or, at least, try to. I've decided to put my energy into some other projects. I'm going to figure out a better way to pass the new little while and hopefully, practice a little patience! Doug was thrilled to hear my new attitude because I've been non-stop focused on all that needs to be done...but in actuality, there's not much that we can do until we close on both homes! My new attitude must be a result of the awesome Relief Society lesson we had yesterday on "Which way are you facing?" It won't hurt me to focus/face things that matter even more than our new home! One of my favorite things is hearing Doug say, "Good girl." Score!
I failed to mention that we watched the movie, "Dave" this weekend with Quayd. Oh my word! He has been on one. Quayd's now decided that he's going to be the President of the US. He has spent the last two days shaking hands with invisible people, kissing invisible babies and waving at his fans. Oh my gosh, it's hysterical! That boy! How he can give such a spiritual talk one minute and be such a comedian the next, I'll never get. All I know is that I love when he is laughing and happy! I'm good with calling him "Mr. President", if I get to see that smile!
Life is good! Huge blizzard expected in the east. I hate to admit it but I'm totally jealous and wishing it were happening here! However, I would prefer to be in our new home, where we have a nice fireplace waiting! Oh, wait! I'm not rushing this anymore! (wink-wink)
Live life joyfully!
Happiness comes when we stop complaining
about what we don't have and start giving thanks for what we do!
