On Saturday we went over to my
MIL and she was talking about not being sure if she
would put up a tree or not.
By the time we left the tree was up,
lights were on and the angel on the top was there.
She was very happy. She is 84,
and is slowing down
and it frustrates her.
We spent the afternoon and had taken lunch over.
she so misses her husband at this time of the year,
Then today I phoned my Mom
and she was missing my Dad and was baking
and made a mistake. she was feeling pretty down.
Anyway I never had her laughing so much because
she was reading me the recipe and I told her she
would have to 9 times the recipe,
She said I don't have 9 cups of sugar,
and I say Halaleuyah, Thank the Lord above,
I said if you have to 9 times your recipe
you will have about 600 butter tarts,
then she says I don't have a pot big enough.
But it was the comic relief she needed,
She was talking and I had a few Cataplexy episodes while I was listening to her,
Then she says Cindy, Cindy are you there, now she has gotten all serious
so I can answer her again.
Anyway she was feeling much better, we were both in great moods,
so I thought I might put out some of my Christmas decorations.
I did not bring up any of the boxes and I took what was in my
china cabinet out and I think I have enough.
Everything is in cream and gold.
we watched the Grey Cup,
it was a great game,
lots and lots of excitement,
I was rooting for Saskatchewan
since I was born and raised there.
Montreal played very well.
Watched a Hall Mark movie that I cried my eyes out,
the kind of movie that leaves you feeling good.
and the best part Sam Elliott was in it,
talk about lucking out.
he is my fave.
I have my insomnia still
and that is why I am still having my
One solid sleep and I will be back on track,
I will have to nap tomorrow and get back on my schedule
to get me back on track.
I hope your weekends were all wonderful.
One last thing before I go
I watched the CNN special where they were honoring heroes for 2010.
It was wonderful, inspiring, motivating and makes me believe
we can change the world one person at a time.
More about this on my next post.
Have Your Very Best Day!
