I'm a few days behind in Bloggerland. Actually, I figured everyone is so busy right now, they really don't care if I do a blog post or not. So much going on with Christmas preparations.
Phylly and I got together for lunch today at our used-to-be favorite restaurant, TGI Friday's. It was really good for a long time, but the last few times we went the manager was different every time. The last time we went the newest manager came over to inform us that the rules had all changed and ALL the other managers had been fired. He was a jerk, and neither one of us liked him. We decided we just wouldn't go back.
AND GUESS WHO CALLED ME TONIGHT????
Hollie. All the way from Alaska where it is now FORTY below zero! We talked for nearly an hour, and we have planned out her and John's whole future. We have decided -- she and I -- that they can build a house on the five acres next to us. I can home school all of their children. Hollie can be a Dental Hygenist (?) or Dentist (she isn't sure yet), and John can take over Family Medical Supply (our business).
JUST TWO MINUTES AGO, JOHN CALLED.
I told him we had planned his whole life, and he said Hollie told him. He thought it was a great idea. They both called to thank me for the Christmas gifts I sent. They arrived there today. He also told me that he may be going to Arizona for five weeks because they are changing his job. Can't the Army make up it's mind??!! At least, it isn't 40 degrees below zero in Arizona. It's the complete opposite. I grew up in Arizona, so I know all about that.
I better go. I'm sure there is something I need to be doing.
