Me happy about my Jamba and cute cute card- seriously love that card!
Today and yesterday, Clay has felt kinda like death. When that happens, he doesn't want to eat ANYTHING! Seriously- nothing sounds good. So the thing is, he needs to eat. Especially cause he has to take his pills...which require food. So anyway- I asked a number of options if he wanted and finally asked if he wanted a Jamba (for those who don't know that's a smoothie place- yummilicious)...FINALLY that sparked some interest. So I went ahead and scooted myself down to Jamba Juice and after what appeared to be three teenage meth addicts got their jambas, I ordered ours. Well it just so happened that they were doing this special. The girl talked to me about it. And somehow, I ended up with a free hot chocolate! Without spending any extra money! Fabulous. Then to top it off she asked if I wanted a carrier for my stuff, and well yeah- I did! Cause I don't know about you non-coffee drinkers but it always just LOOKS cool when people are carrying a bunch of drinks ya know? So anyway...I was pretty excited about that.
Another great thing about today...a girl from Canada bought one of my camera strap covers, and I received her check in the mail today along with a CUTE CUTE card. In the card she basically said that she knew about my husband's and my illness, and that even strangers I've never met like her are praying for us. She said that my positive attitude will pull me through! Seriously...made my day. What a sweetheart. I love making new friends- I now consider her one!
Dante is just about the cutest little (big) thing ever. I just love him. Clay and I have talked about how it is SUCH a blessing we have him right now. He honestly brings SO much joy. I sit with Clay and we are both stressed and down and all I have to do is look at Dante with his most innocent loving face- and he just makes everything seem easier. I dunno. I really think that having a perfect spirit, and such an innocent being in the home makes a difference. And he really is SO loving. He loves us soooo much. Which is why it's so easy to love him!
I have Christmas pretty much complete. Just need to finish off the dad's. Seriously? Is it like this for everyone else? Our dad's are always the last ones I get presents for cause they are SO dang hard to shop for. I think I know what we're doing but still I just am not sure.
A few things I'm excited about for the new year:
- BACHELOR! YESSSSSSSSSSSSS- Seriously...I know this is shallow but really? Everyone is shallow I'm pretty sure...in SOME aspect. And guess what- this is my aspect for sure! Bachelor is legit. As in...every episode never fails to entertain. My sister Amy and I can seriously talk on the phone for like an hour before we realize that we've just talked about Bachelor for an hour. We pretty much like to discuss every facial expression and sentence said. I have a feeling this will be a good one :) And don't you worry- I'll be here to talk about it like I always do.
- New Years Resolutions. I totally need some. I do really well with fresh starts. Like in school- semesters...I always set new schedules. I loved it. It's like a new semester...a new schedule...it'll be great!
- This isn't very specific but I just KNOW 2011 is gonna be a GREAT year for us. I feel like we will make some major strides and accomplishments. I just know it.
Well I'm feeling pretty good tonight, so I think I'm gonna go do some sewing. Wohoo! I have some little presents to make for my co-workers that I think they just might like! I will show you them after I give them to them on Monday:) Can't wait! This is when Christmas starts getting good- when you give stuff to people! Yay!
I hope everyone is enjoying the season. LOVE to you all.
