Taking a break and good news
Good morning all. My kids are still sleeping, the cats have been fed, I have a pot of coffee brewing, and there is banana nut bread baking in the oven. Yeah, I'v been busy for the short time I've been awake.
Honestly, the fresh coffee and the banana bread are for my mom. She spent the night so I could go to a movie. It is amazing how much good two hours without worrying does. I think not having to drive and not having to pay for anything did just as much for me as the movie. It is nice to be treated every now and again.
My mom's car broke down last Monday. I have to fetch her if she wants to go anywhere until they can get it fixed. One of the joints on the axle broke so that may take away, especially since the weather has turned cold. My brother can do it, but he has to find the time in between all of his other responsibilities.
I could have taken my mom back home last night but since it was after dark and cold out she decided to spend the night. God Bless mothers, I don't know what I would do without mine. (She was here 15 minutes and found three things I've been looking a week for! How does she do that?)
Oh, I also have some other good news that came about from that stress class I attended. They gave us raffle tickets at the door when we went in. I didn't know what they were for but my ticket was drawn and I won a free turkey! Considering we were not sure how we were going to manage one for Thanksgiving this year, I was beyond happy.
Since I have to work Thanksgiving this year, my mom will be at my house watching the kids for me. My family is all coming here for Thanksgiving. It makes me excited. I may not get a lot of sleep that day with so many people here but it is worth it to actually get to celebrate with my family. :)
