Alone at Last!

As I mentioned yesterday, my parents are up visiting for a few days before Christmas. They decided they would stay at a hotel. It was cheaper for them to get two beds instead of one. Guess what this means? Yep, the girls got to stay with Pop and Nana last night. So this morning I am enjoying some very much needed quiet time home alone.

Of course I was up before Myron left for work. I have ironed clothes, washed a load of clothes and gotten my shower. I would say that is a pretty productive morning considering it is only right now 8:52 a.m. Oh and I called a friend who is in Atlanta taking her son to Emory to see a specialist. I pray they get good news this morning.

We spent yesterday helping Nana finish up her shopping for Christmas. We went out for dinner and opened presents. The girls were so excited to open their presents. They got some boots, American Girl items, blankets, and ... I don't remember what else.

I guess I should get dressed and find out what the plans are for the day. But it feels so good sitting right here by myself with nothing that I HAVE to do.

Where Have I Been?

Oh my ... I have not posted since October. WOW!!! Where have I been? Please don't think that I don't think about posting because I do. I just never take the time to sit down and type anything out. I guess not much has happened that sounds exciting enough to post.

We still have our house for sale in NC. Believe me, you will know when it finally sells. I think EVERYone will know when that house finally sells.

We are still making progress on the SC house. Myron finally finished the tile behind the stove over the weekend. We are adding a few little touches to the bottom of the upper cabinets that I have to paint one more coat on. I do dread painting the upper cabinets. There are just so many of them. Myron assures me he will help.

Christmas is just a few days away. I have one more thing to get but it requires Myron's help to buy. I'm not sure when we will take care of it as long as it is before next Monday when my in-laws arrive. My parents are scheduled to arrive some time today. They were supposed to be here before lunch, but my dad decided he wanted to buy a car. I haven't heard if everything went well with the purchase. I guess I will know when they show up in a new car.

Our plan for Christmas Eve is to go to Asheville to visit with friends and attend Christmas Mass at St. Eugene's Catholic Church. We have not been back to church there in over a year. It will be good to see people we haven't seen in a while.

If anyone read the Christmas letter I mailed this year, you read that Myron will be shaving his goatee in the near future. Well the time arrived yesterday. I was very sad. Bethany was not too excited about it either. I cannot wait to hear how he was teased at work today. He was preparing himself for all the remarks. He looks so young without the facial hair.

I am off to bake a pumpkin pound cake. If I don't get back on here before Saturday, I would like to wish everyone a Very, Merry Christmas!!!
