Random thoughts & a trip to the ER
Hi guys! I hope you are enjoying the 12 days of giveaways. It’s been a blast putting it together for ya!
I knew I loved blogging, but since the giveaways started I realized how much I really, really love it. I miss hanging out with you guys. So here’s a random post about a few things going on this week.
Um, yah I don’t even know what’s going on here. Just thought I’d share this hilarious pic of Bam putting himself in timeout with his elf.
I’ve spent quite a bit of time on the course this week. Not hating it.
Don’t let the beautiful clear blue skies and sunshine fool you, it’s been chilly along the coast. It was 32 degrees on my way to work. There was even a frost delay.
I still don’t want to work inside. This is my jam.
Wednesday is burger & fries day at work and I am a little embarrassed to tell you how excited I was about it. I clocked out and helped myself to a big juicy cheese burger with extra pickles & ketchup. I sat down took a bite and was in heaven. Took another bite & thought either this is really good or I’m really hungry. Then my phone rang, it was Mike telling me he was involved in a car accident while at work and was in an ambulance on his way to the hospital.
I jumped up, threw my beautiful plate of food away, radioed the boss man and was on my way to meet him in the ER.
Mike works outside & drives for his job was going through an intersection, someone ran a stop sign and he had nowhere else to go but into them & then a parked car.
I am so thankful he’s okay-no broken bones or cracked skulls – just in a lot of pain. Especially his right hip.
I often think about the semi-dangerous job he does. We never know what the day will bring every time he walks out the front door, but I’m at peace knowing that man loves what he does & stuff like this comes with the nature of his job and life. He’s happy, so I’m happy.
Not a day goes by I don’t tell him how much I love him. Even if he is a pain in the buttocks & cries about his eyelashes hurting.
So now the ongoing joke is Mike owes me a burger & fries. Ha!
As you can imagine after that long day, all we wanted to do was take a shower, put on our pj’s and snuggle with Bam. This is the good life folks.
I took it easy yesterday and finally got around to decorating our Christmas tree. This is my current view. I am loving it!
Sour Patch Kids candy canes are the best ever. You are not allowed to argue with me on this.
I also set up all of my Starbucks tree, with Ralphy & Peanuts – all of my favorites!
Tell me something positive.
If you could decorate your Christmas tree, what theme would it be?
Christmas lights: white, multi or solid color?
We are a family divided. Mike likes plain white & I like multi. So I used both on the tree because I am nice and like to compromise. **Note to Mike – you are not allowed to comment on this.
