Merry Christmas From Our Neck Of The Woods

Advertisements

This has been a week of EXTREME HIGHS AND LOWS. I am still wrapping my head around the EVENTS that have taken place.
I am FINALLY FEELING THE SPIRIT OF THIS BEAUTIFUL  ADVENT NOW CHRISTMAS SEASON.
SO IS DANNY. (Sort of.) He is relieved , as I am that some of our WORRIES are over. I am not ready to go into all of it, let’s just say, my dad sent ME (US) a HUGE CHECK.
He had no idea how much we needed it.
No one did. (Family).

So we can get caught up again. Pay bills. Fix our personal truck. ETC.
So all is good there.

WE HAD A HUGE BLOWUP EARLIER THIS WEEK.
HUGE.
Totally took me by surprise. The ARGUMENT not the timing. Danny ALWAYS DOES SOMETHING THIS TIME OF YEAR.
HUGE ENOUGH that WHEN I got the check, my first though was OH MY GOSH. TEARS. HAPPINESS.
AND THEN, FORGIVE ME BUT….I thought, I CAN LEAVE HERE if I WANT TO.
That thought didn’t just go AWAY.

We also SOLD our RV to a young family who is going to fix it up enough to live in it.
We didn’t get much for it after the damaged from the tree falling on it but then we weren’t expecting anyone to buy it to live in. I am excited for them. (His father fixes RV’s).
The RV was our First home together. He sold his house the same time I moved here permanently. We lived in the RV for 5 years. Used it for another year after we moved into the house here and then took it to the old shop here on the property.
That money Danny used to buy US an awesome Christmas gift.
WAY TO EXPENSIVE… Like, I said, I am still wrapping my head around everything that has happened here just this week.
My first Christmas Present in years from HIM.. It is also the first time in a long time he was thinking OF US….Not HIM or ME BUT US….
So while I was/am against the expense …..I am selfishly glad that he did it. I will share SOON.

Bobby is smiling about it.

I had an awesome talk with my dad Tuesday. A couple of hours. I couldn’t believe we had a good connection on Danny’s cell phone. From inside the house. No fighting SKEETERS OUTSIDE trying to find a signal. Land line is OUT.
Dad is doing good, for someone who is living without the love of his life. This is our  second Christmas without mom.
Danny and I will be taking a VACATION to visit my dad in APRIL. Our first vacation in 6-7 years. Our first together OUT Of FLORIDA.
Dad lives in Arizona.
I went home to Illinois last Thanksgiving for mom’s memorial service. I was there for almost 2 weeks.

Dad and I talked about Danny and I moving there when HE retires. IN 11 years.
The property there will be mine SOMEDAY.
At least it is cool there at night and it is NOT HUMID.
JUST UNBAREABLY HOT.

Danny and I spent HOURS after he got home from work Wednesday talking about LEAVING HERE,  moving to Arizona, Colorado and even Illinois.  We were still talking  when he went to  bed at  4 AM .
The alarm just went off.  6AM. He will be tired today.
I have a few things I want to do TO GET THIS BLOG GOING and hopefully making a profit…..getting org instead of .com for one. Getting a DOMAIN.
Buying a camera for another. Mine broke.
Any ideas of where to START WOULD BE APRECIATED.

I can’t believe that it is Christmas EVE DAY.
It is 72 outside. Foggy. Wet.

I am going to send this NOW while the internet is working.
OH, Speaking about the internet…..FRONTER DID BUY OUT THIS AREA’S LANDLINES And are suppose to take over in APRIL It will be interesting to see WHAT they WILL DO. Our landline has been un-usable for months. Dial tone only. Too much static to hear. It doesn’t even ring.
WordPress is still messed up but better.
I will try and answer comments the rest of this week. Last time I didn’t get very far and I couldn’t comment on any more. Screen kept freezing.

This is a different Merry Christmas POST than I wanted to write.
Not as MUCH About Christmas as I would have liked.
I will add to it When I can….
Plus add pictures…..
Tags etc.  LATER.
I need to lay down.
Another all nighter.

Our Christmas is tonight……
Here’s to family. Friends. Good Food.
Memories.
Remember that Jesus Christ IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON.
Merry Christmas EVE.
Merry Christmas.
Love From Our Neck Of The Woods,
