I've never been one to be looking for someone to take care of me, but this Christmas might have changed my mind. I was home, at my mom's house. My stepdad has always been the absent type until my baby sister moved n with the baby. After that, he started staying home, babysitting, taking care of things around the house, etc. It was a nice change to see in him. He was even upset because Walmart didn't have any cute baby dolls he could buy her for Christmas.
So on Christmas Day, it was forecasted that we were going to get snow. Lots of snow. He insisted that he was driving to my sister's (an hour south, where they were getting even more snow). I always have to drive, so it was really niece not to have to. I kept thinking...this is a lot of gas I'm saving! Then on the way back, we stopped at a gas station to get something to drink. He went in and got everything for us. No piling out of the truck for me! I know they're small things, but it was so nice. He also loaded and unloaded the truck. No jumping in and out of the bed in the freezing cold for me!
I'm definitely rethinking the take care of me thing now.
I had to edit to add the second half bc I couldn't type past the middle of the text box! Autocorrect is also going nuts today for some reason. Plus there's a delay. Grrr...gremlins are messing with us again!
