Trying To Be Thankful!

For three days I've been attempting to clean out my files so that I can somehow make room for more photographs of our splendid Thanksgiving feast and family gathering. Its just not working.
An email to Google and perhaps something will change shortly. 

Just here to say that I apologize for not attending to my blogging duties, but I do have events recorded and someday soon, a whole glut of visuals will appear!

Hope your Thanksgiving was not too stressful, hanging out with all those people who knew you since birth! 

My food consumption was moderate, so I feel pretty good about not sizing up in my jeans!!

The cold and white weather has returned. Its really winter I believe. Stay warm all!

Happy your Thanksgiving was lovely with smiles all around the table. Know what you mean about jeans sizing up. I, er, indulged a bit too much and am, ahem, almost back to that more comfortable fit. Gotta get into that dress for New Year's!

Rose, I'm excited for you about your soon-to-be first grandchild. I know you're going to be a super Nana. Gosh, I was kinda envious of how well Brees lived, so being your grandchild would have to be Nirvana.

Don't worry. All will be just fine. Candy pushed the pre-natal care envelope. She acquired diabetes from the second pregnancy, and it didn't disappear as the doc had thought. Because of the pre-existing condition, her insurance was pretty much kaput for this unplanned pregnancy. So, an over-confident youth thing and a hard-headed red state thing created the perfect storm for disaster. Candy was much younger than I am, but as she grew into womanhood we began to grow closer and became real sisters, not just half-blood sisters. Her death created an anguish for so much lost in so many ways. I honestly didn't know this feeling existed. But I'm learning to deal with it. However, I've not removed my Obama sticker from my Beemer, if you get my drift.

Rose, I'm excited for you! Sounds like all's going well. I'd be offended, too, if I were doing my job and someone dissed my pregnant tummy. Humph!

I'm surprised, but not 100% surprised the farm is up for sale. I somewhat sensed you were ready for a change. A first grand baby is wonderful change. Actually, I'm smiling from ear to ear on this side of the computer. This change will work work beautifully. I'm very, very happy for you! xoxo Kittie
