IN ADDITION TO THE ICE AND SNOW... WIND AND COLD WILL COMBINE TO DROP WIND CHILLS TO BETWEEN ZERO AND 10 ABOVE ZERO LATER TONIGHT AND THURSDAY. BLUSTERY NORTH WINDS WILL LIKELY RESULT IN CONSIDERABLE BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW.
Thank you Father for friends that help make this easier...for friends that remind you that there really IS good in this world...for friends that lift your spirit and ALWAYS point me back to You because You are the only one that can give me peace...thank you for answering my prayer...you knew what I needed and you provided....just like always...thank you Father for loving me that much...
This is the final picture of the tree and my beautiful children. Putting the stuff up without their Dad felt so weird and so wrong. I think if I can get through the holidays I will be ok but right now it just feels like someone is missing. The person that hung the lights is gone...I still have a stocking with his name on it...oh gosh so many things that become "tradition" are just gone...just like that...gone:-( The kids didn't even seem to notice and just got caught up in the excitement..Father I pray that I can just be like my kids and get caught up in the excitement and be thankful for all that I have and not what I am missing because this hurts...
1)I HATE black ink...I mean really can't stand using it...lately all the things I have to fill out require black ink and that makes me cringe.
2)I love music and I listen to it LOUDLY..probably to drown out my own voice because I have to sing along.
3)I can't STAND Elvis...no hate mail please:-)...his voice is like nails on a chalkboard to me.
4)I get lost all the time. My excuse here is I am new to Oklahoma but I grew up in Florida and still got lost.
5)I don't really understand football but I am trying. I figured I moved to a place where football is a religion that I HAVE to like it.
6)I love things to be clean and in order BUT if they are in a closet or drawer I don't care..I mean really don't care.
7)We quote Seinfeld as a family;-) Sad huh?
8)I refuse to wear glasses so I can't see half the time.
9)I hate shopping:-D I know most women love to go shopping but not me! I hate it and GASP I don't care about shoes either...see I really AM weird:-D
This is my middle childs head lol Remember the one that just got the cast off???!!!! Yepthat one! This happened at church last night..I swear this child is going to give me a head full of gray hair!! Thankfully the guy that heads the Royal Rangers is also a nurse so he fixed him right up. This has been the longest week in the history of weeks...I have the next 3 days off and I NEED it!
Geez what a week! Dh got here Sunday afternoon and left to go BACK to Florida this morning. Before he came he had wanted to live with me but I didn't want to fall back into the same routine if nothing had changed..I didn't come this far to go back to that...I deserve better and so do the kids. It took me a LONG time to realize that....Still I believe he thought I would change my mind because he came here withOUT reservations at a hotel OR a place to live. I didn't cave and after a couple of days of not convincing me to take him in he left to go back to Florida. He left this morning but not before the drama last night. Goodness in true redneck fashion we had a yelling match in the parking lot of my apartment complex. Yep I am officially white trash and have stooped to a new low. So that is the update...he is gone and our life will go on once again. This time he can't undo the damage. I tucked 3 crying children in bed last night and he can't take that back. Good thing they have a heavenly Father that will never leave them or forsake them:-)
