It's over

Yes folks, Christmas is over...thank you God. Today Bigblock and I set out to run some errands and after seeing two accidents, we decided it just wasn't worth it and came back home. Waited till around noon and SUCCESS got everything done, even got something to eat and it's back home for us. Roads were terrible today and they predict more for tomorrow. Hey Bigblock, can we please move now? Yeah right, like that's gonna happen.
Ok, on to other news. I passed all my classes. One A and all the rest were B's, which I am very glad to take, because this was the semester from Hell. I have three weeks off to recuperate then it's back to the grindstone, ugh....
Talked to Thing 1 and family and am sending their Christmas presents with my oldest sis who will be in their neck of the woods. I would really like to see them, but with Bigblock being off work and no idea how this economy is going to affect his work schedule, and I hate that long ass drive, we decided to stay home from that too. Bunch of wussies just staying home, aren't we?
Thing 2 has been driving me crazy too. He sits at the home computer and blasts his music so I can hear it from any room in the house. I think I must be getting too old, because it's just too damn loud. Please someone send a woman to love and take care of him soon before I completely lose it, please.............

Weeeeeeeeeeee and my secret.....

Finally, I am out of school for 3 weeks, yes!! Now, just waiting for final grades to be posted. Arrrrgh........ You might ask what am I going to be doing for three whole weeks? I am going to be reading for pleasure (versus having to read), cleaning my house, visiting with family, sleeping in, and anything else I want!! Oh, and reading my fav blogs, which as soon as I learn how, I will list.

Ok, now for my secret. No one in my family knows I have a blog, and I can't believe I've kept it a secret this long. Anyways, I am pondering what I should tell, because if they find out it may cause problems Bigblock is old-fashioned and likes to keep things private, but I will pretty much just put it out there. So stay tuned............

I was talking to my "little" sister at the store this weekend and a gentleman came up and asked what was the matter with her husband. For the people that don't know, he is in a wheelchair and has been since before they were married. Keep in mind, that she was 20 years old when they were married and her husband has been disabled since he was somewhere around 30 years old. They have been married for 18 years. They met when he was in rehab learning to take care of himself again. I thought it was a little disconcerting that a total stranger would just come up and say "what happened to me him? was it an accident or what?" My sister and her husband handled it very graciously, I must say. She went out of her way to explain that her husband had a vehicle accident, and was very gracious to a total stranger. I hope I would handle it the same way if I was in her shoes.

I know for some people dealing with similar circumstances it gets very annoying having to answer questions. However, I don't believe it's because people are idiots, they just are curious. Really, how will others learn to deal with individuals with disabilities, if someone doesn't educate them?

I just want to say that I am very proud of my sister and brother-in-law. They have went out of their way to help others, sometimes putting themselves at risk, but thank the Lord nothing has ever happened to them!! I couldn't ask for better family and I cherish them everyday!!

Oh Baby, It's Cold Outside

Oh, baby is it cold outside. I might get around to posting some pics this weekend. It's already 25 degrees outside, but it's supposed to make it to 44 tomorrow. Damn Bigblock, if he would just move, I wouldn't have to whine like this.

On a happier note, I saw one of my sisters last night, you know I have 4, yes I said four!! It is a hoot when we all get together. Anyway, her birthday was a few weeks ago, and she was telling me about drinking margarita's, well the rest of the night she was worshiping the porcelain throne, on her anniversary no less. Poor hubby ha, he thought it was his going to be his lucky night.

I am currently going to college, so for the next couple of weeks my new little blog is going to be neglected. I have several tests coming up and finals, can you say SH*T! So, I'll get back when I can. In the meantime, try to stay warm..............anyway you can..............
