Letter to my mom

Hey, Mom!

I keep completely failing to call you and thank you for the encouragement cards! 

They arrived on Saturday, and then we were rushing all over the place trying to get the laundry done and errands run.  Sunday, I got to sing with the worship band for the very first time in front of the church, so we had practice from 8:00 until church started, and then after church, we were decorating the house for Christmas and making our Thanksgiving dinner (instead of being at 10:00 at night on Thanksgiving, we were a whole three days late!) and other randomness.  Monday, I started my day dark and early at 4:45 with my workout, followed by work, and then a chiropractic appointment, and then Zumba.  So I didn’t get home until after 8:00 and then I was SO TIRED that I pretty much collapsed.

But thank you!  They’re wonderful!  And they’re going to be SO HELPFUL on those many, many hard days.  🙂

I’ve got a cold today.  Sneezing a lot, coughing a little, the back of my throat is really sore, so I’ve got some Chlorasecptic drops, a big box of Kleenex, and a mug of tea.  And I’m tired.  I was tempted to stay home from work, but there are only 14 days left of work for the year.  I’ve got stuff to get done!

So I’m sitting here wrapped in my zippered sweater that Grandma gave me for Christmas a couple years ago.  It’s WARM.  And I’ve got my space heater running at my feet.  My new coat is hanging on the wall behind me but I’m settling for just petting it now and then (because it’s so soft!) instead of wearing it (because it’s warm and just so dang cute!).

And my lead sat down a little bit ago and asked if I’d be interested in working my way into a position that’s higher up on the ladder than where I am right now and doing EXACTLY the sort of things that I enjoy doing.  Would I?  Oh YES, I would!

I can’t believe it’s already the 1st of December!  And I still don’t have tickets to fly north.  I’ve been looking at tickets since the beginning of AUGUST.  Difficulties with Justin’s work schedule, really.  But we’re doing it this week!  Maybe tonight?  SOON.

And I haven’t started doing my shopping!  And Justin hasn’t put up a wish list, but I know he’s been thinking about it.

I wish I could breathe out of my left nostril.  Stupid cold.  I’m not sure this box of Kleenex is big enough . . . .

I’ve got to run.  But I wanted to let you know that I got the cards and I think they’re great!  Thank you so much!  I hope you’re having a fantastic week so far!  And I’ll call you as soon as I know more information about our travel plans over the holidays.

Love you!

  1. Thanks for the note, Kylene. What a lovely surprise when I opened your site!

    Glad you liked the cards. They help me some days – some days I am simply incorrigable (or however you spell that). But today I’m being good.

    Hope you feel better soon and I hope you get a good deal on your tickets. Can’t wait to see you in just over 3 weeks! Yea!!
