Blither Blather

Like my title??? I thought it sounded like something I would say! I am pretty sure they are not even words but hey.....as I have said before - it is my blog I can say what I want!!

I am sitting in my husbands chair with his laptop surfing the "net" and decided to do a blog! On what? Don't really have anything particular - just typing to ..... type! Man I am in some sort of weird mood tonight! I guess its a good thing there is a delete button!!!

So what is new in my world? Um...... job is going well! I have a new supervisor and that is making things much better. Hopefully she will get the position on a permanent basis but time will tell. I am just very thankful that I have a job and glad that it provides good insurance for the family! Dave is at home now and will be for awhile. He is working fairly regularly and we are thankful for that. He is so helpful to me and I am glad that I am married to someone who has no problem doing dishes or laundry or anything else around the house! As far as we know, David and Christa will get to be home for Christmas and we are sooooooo excited about that! It is just about all we talk about around here!!! We are so thankful that David is HOME for the holidays this year! Carrie spent Thanksgiving in Florida and is now looking forward to Josh coming here in the evening of Christmas day! She is really enjoying her job but I think she would rather be in Florida for obvious reasons! Ashley is enjoying life in general! She is really happy that her school started a volleyball team this year and she is so excited to play! She got her uniform the other day and she is thrilled with her last name on the back of her shirt! Of course she also has her "friend" which is pretty much all we hear about!!! I can't figure out why she doesn't talk about her Algebra or Chemistry though!!!!

There really is not that much going on around our house these days! Mainly because we are too cold to go outside! I thought my car was going to have a heart attack when I left the bank tonight to come home! I think it was about 17 degrees outside and my car has never seen anything like it!! Then of course my fingers were so cold that I just about could not work the keys! I think I look like a walking mummy whenever I go outside! Scarf and gloves and a coat and boots and extra socks! You would think I had never been in the cold before! I can honestly say I have NEVER liked being cold! And another thing - climbing into bed around here is an activity that requires sheer guts and will power!!!!!!! I lose my breath every single time I lay down!! I hate coffee so that is not an option but Crystal Kline's hot chocolate has become my favorite drink let me tell you!!

Ok - so I have rambled enough foolishness and whined enough for one blog about the cold but I am sure this is not the last time you will hear that!! Have a good evening and maybe the next time you check back I will have something worthwhile to blog about!!!!!

I hate the cold as much as you--maybe more. I'm a lousy Canadian, I guess.

Cold weather has never been a friend of mine. My best friend is My Electric Blanket, has been for many years. They are kinda espensive.....but they are worth it. Maybe that would be something to think about.

So sorry that you are miserably cold; I remember my first winter up north, and honestly it WAS miserable, but next year will be better if that is any consolation :)
Try flannel sheets and pj's - they sheets especially, I wouldn't live without those in the winter time!!
Merry Christmas!

I don't like the cold either and since I have severe arthritis dislike it even more. I think it going to be a cold long winter cause it's not even the first day of winter yet and I'm complaining.

I see someone has mentioned an electric blanket. I would highly recommend one--except then you might never get out of bed:) We are happy you are here with us though!

Remember reading about those hot pans or something that they used to put in the fireplace then right before you got in to bed they would run the hot pans over the sheets so they would be toasty when you got in? I remember reading about them in books written about the 18oo's, like, Laura Ingalls Wilder books, etc. They should still make those things... I hate getting in a cold bed... glad I have a warm husband to snuggle up against!!!

You haven't changed any from when you were a child and begged to go out in the snow, then when you were all dressed to go out, you cried and said you didn't want to get cold. Your mean mom made you go out anyway for a few minutes after all the work of getting you ready. But you are loved more than you were then. Mom

Haha! I have to laugh at "mom's" comment. That is too funny!

Just got back from Hobe. Was reminded that I loved it there!!! Nothing like a Florida winter.

My lil sister loves to tell how her thoughtful husband will sometimes surprise her on a cold FL night and use the hair dryer set on the hottest setting to warm her side of the bed just before she heads that way...you can pass that one on as a 'hint, hint' to David. "-)
