So, I just have to talk about this whole working on the holidays jazz...it sucks!!! I was SO sad this year not to be able to spend time with our families on Thanksgiving : ( The older I get, the more I cherish times such as these and now I have to totally miss out completely on them : ( I was just hoping and praying SO bad yesterday that I could be sitting with my Daddy, eating turkey and my Mommy's Y-U-M-M-Y mac-n-cheese until I could pop, laughing at his crazy stories while all my nephews ran around. Oh, good times! It makes me almost cry : ( Oh well, I can't change it, and I know this is how our lives will be for a long time but I just wanted to whine about it anyway. I just don't think anybody should have to work on Thanksgiving or Christmas!!!!!!
On the other hand, I do have TONS to be thankful for this year! For one, even though I am complaining about it, I am thankful that I do have a job. I love what I do and feel very fortunate to be able to bring home an income...I just wish I didn't have to on holidays, ha! I am also more thankful than I could EVER begin to explain for my husband! Three years ago, I would have laughed in your face if you told me we would be married! I would have thought that was the most absurd thing I have ever heard! But here we are, two and a half years later...I thank God every single day for Mikey. I am 110% positive that I will be spending the rest of my life with the man God provided for me! That is such a wonderful feeling! And of course I am incredibly thankful for my family! My parents are the BEST! I have never done without anything, always had more than I needed, they raised me in church (which now as an adult I see how so VERY important that is), my Daddy has ALWAYS had GREAT advice...and somehow he is ALWAYS right...about everything, ha! They have never led me in the wrong direction, and always allowed me my independence I needed to become the person I am today. Thank you Mommy and Daddy, I am FOREVER grateful and LOVE you more than you will EVER know!!! Not only am I grateful for my side of the family but I now have another wonderful set of parents, brother and sister-in-law and beautiful nephews I am thankful for. I couldn't ask for better in-laws and I look forward to making tons of memories and traditions with you guys!!!! Thanks for everything you all have done for us!!! We LOVE and MISS you tons and wish we could visit more often! I could go on and on and on ALL night but you get the picture : ) Since it is Thanksgiving and all, I felt that I needed to add this paragraph.
Well, today is "Black Friday!" I am at work now, but when I get off in about oh...7 hours...we are heading to bed, bath, and beyond and maybe a couple of other stores to get a couple of things for the house. We can't get too much but we are just gonna get a little here and there. I am SUPER excited to put up the Christmas tree and decorations this weekend!!!! And of course today is the IRON BOWL!!!! ROLL TIDE!!!! We should have the internet hooked up at the house before the weekend is over so hopefully I will be able to keep you updated. I know this was a long post, but it's been forever since I have been able to get on!!! I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving and has a safe Black Friday...don't get in the middle of any fights at Wal-Mart, ha!
