If you read my last posts post you already know that I was not feeling the Holiday Joy this year but for my kids I did my ultra best.
They had a great Christmas. I always start the Christmas shopping early and so I had most of their presents bought before we got the bad news about Bill's job. The boys were spoiled by my parents and Bill's dad. We are healthy, just that is a big gift.
Duke Duke Duke!!!
Happy boys! Thank you Grandpa!
I have a hard time to just relax and not worry even during the Holidays. I actually worry more, if that is possible, because not much is happening in the job search during the Holiday break.
I have been running every day. We have the perfect weather right now. Sunny and cool. It is so nice! I hope this will last a long time!
Look what came to visit my backyard: A hawk!
Christmas was complete with the annual.... "Now what do you want for your birthday?" question from my mom.... My birthday is in 2 weeks from today. I used to hate having my birthday so soon after the Holidays because well, nobody cares. Everyone is tired of gifts and celebrations by then. For a kid it matters of course but now I don't really care..this year a new job would be nice for my birthday!!! :)
Yesterday I got a great news! I won a $125 gift card giveaway to Road Runner Sports from Just a Colorado Gal! I am going to get new shoes!
***I am watching ROOTS as a type this. Have you ever seen it? I remember when it was on TV for the first time. I was just 8 and my parents would not let me watch it. On Christmas Eve there was a ROOTS marathon on TV and I taped it all. ROOTS was the first book I read in English. I am watching the TV series for the first time. Of course I know the history and what happened during that time but still makes me angry and sad to watch it. The first 3 hours are hard to watch. I can only imagine how hard it was for the actors to play these roles...ALL of them....***
