It's so cold in the mornings. I hate the cold.
I would rather be dripping sweat from heat than bone freezing cold.
My fingers and toes have been bone freezing cold lately.
I turned the heater on yesterday.

I crawled into bed with Blake last night.
Instead of getting the giggles...
I got the nibbles and ate him all up.
He was so yummy.
It gave him the giggles,
but I continued to nibble.
Then I got kind of sad, but didn't show it,
that we have to cath him every few hours
to empty his bladder.
And that we have been doing it for 8 years now.
Then I dared to ask him if he is OK being special.
I am waiting for the day that he answers no.
He said YES, but sometimes he wishes he wasn't.
I then asked him if he thinks God made him special
because he knew he could handle it.
He smiled and said YES again.
I told him I agreed.
God knew our whole family could handle it.
I might have been lying at that point.
Putting up a good front for him.
Because for some reason I was sad about it.
But I do believe that God knew what he was doing.
So I decided to just start nibbling again.
And, that made us both happy.

I'm off to a few estate sales this morning, to the grocery store,
and to a girlfriend's 40th birthday party luncheon.
A girlfriend I share so many fun stories with from high school!
Like the time when she was driving her dad's really, really old truck
and I told her to drive by football practice where all the guys we liked
were out practicing so we could check them out.
When we got there, I managed to lay on the horn,
while I laid down across the seat to make it look like she was in there all alone.
Laying on the horn.
That one still makes me laugh out loud.
Just because I can still picture her face.
Love you, Beck!

I'll be listing pillows and chalkboards
in my shop this weekend.
And also the sweetest 'Keep Calm' necklaces.
You can start your holiday shopping early.
All my jewelry comes packaged in a little gift box.
