Happy Monday Morning

Mon, 11-12-2012 - 11:10am

We had rain most of the night but it seems to have stopped.  We are getting cold weather this morning.   I'm wondering if I should break out my sweaters.  We usually only have cold weather in the morning and late evening but still, I own sweaters and they are pretty and I want to wear them. 

So how is your week starting off?

Wow you have a lot on your plate and living in hurricane central too.

I know I am bad, I try to remember to be appreciative of all the things he does for me but sometimes I forget..bad Thia!

I am not a morning person either, but must be one M-F

Thia, I didn't think it would ever end either.   After all he is a morning person and I don't even know what mornings are.  LOL!  But when my husband had an attack caused by MS, which we didn't even know he had, everything changed.  I know he knows who I am but sometimes I'm not sure he always knows what it means to be married and to be someone's spouse.  I have to lay out his clothes for him because he is no longer capable of finding the appropriate clothes in the drawers for himself.  He would put on a heavy winter sweatshirt in the middle of a heat wave.   He just can't make those connections anymore.  He can dress himself but it's by pure luck that he gets it right left on his own.  He will sometimes wake me up to ask me if he should wear a short or long sleave, shorts or pants.  There are a lot of little things he use to do that he just doesn't anymore and I doubt he even remembers ever doing them. 

When I tell my son stories about his father and me, my husband will sometimes comment and I know from the comment he doesn't remember that at all. 

Very seriously, let him know how much it means to you that he warms up your side of the bed and protects you from a frigid house in the mornings.

"My hubby use to get up first and flip on the heater for me. It was so nice. I was so spoiled. Enjoy it while it lasts."

Nawleansdarlin' it has lasted nigh on 30 years...do you think it will end ever? LOL I don't think so :D

He also turns the electric blanket on my side of the bed so that is warmed up when I am ready for sleep. There are so many little things he does for me that I sadly take for granted. He is an amazing man, definitely one of a kind!

There are women out there who want to be a size 6 or 8 and buy jeans in those sizes but they never get back down to that size and those jeans and dress pants all end up at Good Will tags still on. 

I was a size 2 when I had my son twenty years ago.  I was just a tall skinny kinky haired girl.  Now I almost weigh what someone my height and age should weigh but keeping it on is difficult. 

I see we should be in the low 70's on Thanksgiving day.  That works for me.

Still pretty cold here at night though last night we didn't hit freezing. So hoping for snow this year at Christmas.

I am so lucky cause hubby takes the kids to school in the morning, and before he does that he goes out to the office and makes sure I have to only push the button on the coffee (he sets it all up for me) and he turns on the heaters for me so it isn't too chilly when I go to work.

I am loving having the office a bit away from the house, benefits of no noise from the kids/grandkids...but brrrrrrrr it can be chilly and can't wait for the snowy commute! bwhahahhaha

I don't think I saw a size 0 since middle school..I have what is called "birthing hips" so I am average height and weigh, just not a stick...have that rubenesque build.

I love it when I find stuff at good will that is brand new..so crazy!

Sue, it is those lows at night that are killing me.  My arthritus is letting me know I ain't so young anymore.  And when did my right shoulder develope arthritus? 

I go to the Good Will store to get my jeans usually.  I'm skinny and let me tell you there are a lot of women out there who are wishful thinkers.  I get jeans with the tags still on them for $5.  Years ago I bought a brand spankin' new pair of Calvin Klien jeans for $2.  I wore a size 0 then.  I am many sizes away from that now.  LOL!  

Boys will be boys.  I'm sure grandpa was throwing mini-snowballs back and having a blast.  My nephew got my mom good with a snowball a few years ago.   My mom is not usually a good sport but that day she was.  She turned to see who had gotten her and my nephew was cracking up and declaring, "I got you mawmaw!"  My mom laughed and got herself a hand full of snow and got him back and she had to chase him too.   LOL!

Let's hope the good weather keeps up.

Ahh Thia,  glad I'm not as cold as you. I wouldn't even get out bed if we dropped that low.  brrrrrr.   I would have to layer big time.  Oh, I saw leg warmers in the store yesterday.  I loved leg warmers in the 80's and I bet if I looked hard enough I could dig out a pair with shiney stuff in them.  All of mine had shiney stuff.  LOL!

Mom wants snow the day after Christmas and all the way through new years with a heavy rain or snow on New Year's eve.   If we get any snow I hope it at least waits until I get the christmas lights down.  I'm also hoping for a slightly warmer day on the day I put them up.

My dd was so happy to have a sweater day.  She even found one she hadn't worn yet, when she cleaned her room Wink  She shopped at the Salvation Army store a couple of times and stocked up on sweaters for the winter and she's a very happy girl, apparently.  This from the girl who for years refused to wear anything resembling a sweater.  My, how the times change!

We had a very gorgeous 70 degree Sunday, followed by a Monday whose high temp was 45 and fell into the low 30s during the day.  Lovely contrast.  We saw big floating fluffy snowflakes yesterday evening, but nothing stuck because the ground's too warm.  There was enough on the porch that ds10 was able to pelt his grandpa with mini snowballs, so he was happy!

I am right there with you and we already broke out the sweaters. It was down to 29 degrees last night and looks like we will be below freezing for the rest of the season.

Hoping for snow though this year, last year we only had a dusting and it didn't stay.
