I feel Texas.

There is something about driving a truck that makes me feel like Texas. So much so, that sometimes, I want to roll down the window and yell, “YeeeHaw” as I’m going down the street. Somehow it makes me feel like I’m fitting in with the “in”crowd. It doesn’t matter that my truck in a 93 Ford Ranger, and not a 07 Ford F250 diesel tank like the neighbors. We have something in common. We drive trucks, and we are Texas.

Realizations, Christmas, and knitting

I have to realize that I need to stop judging myself by what others do, and what others get accomplished. I say this because sometimes the smallest things are the biggest challenges for me, and when I over come them, that is an accomplishment, and I am moving forward. I am doing harder things, and while they consume so much of me to get done, I am still doing them. I haven’t completely come to stop like I have before. I can only do what I can do, and no more. It’s so easy for me to accept that in other people, to be encouraging ( I hope ), that maybe I need to be more forgiving with myself.

 Totally different subject…. Last night, we had our Christmas in the park, and our Troop helped with the fire. Santa even came, and they had carrollers. Aren’t their costumes great. It was cold, and a wonderful evening. The oldest took a picture with Santa, but I’m not allowed to share that he says. :

I’ve got new bedroom furniture. Plus, I have one fetching done, and one arm attatched to the baby sweater I am working on. Plus some of my stash.

Things going on.

I took some of the boys out to wrap presents for a local charity here. Here are a couple of action shots. The boys enjoyed it, were ready to stay longer, and worked really hard. I’m proud of them.  🙂

I finally put my tree up. For some reason, it’s almost like knitting, I need to have a show and tell. 😉

I’ve been busy knitting, and it’s good to be making progress on some of my projects.  I hope to get a lot more done over the christmas vacation. I put some of my favorite yarn out on a shelf in the living room. I’m hoping that I’ll get moving on my stash! I have some great sock yarn I need to get to.

I just saw this guy, he was great. “Who would you rather drive home with, an Irish drunk, or a sober Korean?!?” Ha!

Finally home… :)

After many months, and a second tour, one of my good friends is finally home. We don’t know for how long yet, but hopefully for good. I just found this picture of us, taken back in 1992, that I thought would be fun to celebrate with.

~*~ I’m glad you made it home safely. Enjoy this time with your family. ~*~antanddaay.jpg
