'tis the season


This is something that I need to keep reminding myself this season. It's been long and really stressful with work and I have sometimes found myself feeling sorry that I can't feel the Christmas spirit as much as I would like to. I came to the realization that it's ME who needs to change my attitude. Life gets busy. Life gets stressful. I can still be JOLLY and JOYFUL.
I have so much to be grateful for... I am so incredibly blessed with a job, with a wonderful husband, with an amazing family. I don't know what I'd do without Steve, my family or the gospel. Life may not always be going exactly the way I think it should be, but I am grateful for the opportunity to know that Heavenly Father has a plan for me and that I can be still and find peace in that knowledge.

It's just metal, right?

Update: Jethro is doing much better and oddly enough behaving like he never has before. I guess it took a near death experience for him to realize that life is just so much easier when he listens to his masters :) He's getting more energy every day and all is well in his happy little life except for his horrible haircut he received from his days in doggy hospital.

On another note...

If you happen to see this guy walking around town, work, school, the gym, etc. without a wedding ring on, don't get the wrong idea. He is still taken and happily married. He just may or may not have lost his wedding ring while shoveling snow one night. People keep saying it will turn up in the spring, but since we pretty much live in the woods, I'm not feeling too hopeful about it.

Remember this guy?..

He got into rat poison and is currently getting a blood transfusion... It's been a rough couple of days for Jethro (and Steve and I). Hopefully all goes smoothly. Our New York money is now going into getting this little guys fixed. New York will always be there for us to visit, right?

It's official...

It's Wintertime!
The past couple of weeks Steve has been outside at night plowing and shoveling snow... It's only just begun! I appreciate so much that he makes sure that it is safe for me to get out of the driveway early in the morning when I go to work.
We're getting a lot of snow and I have a feeling that it's going to be a long winter. We're busy, but it's nice when we get a night in and we watch a movie and the snow outside next to the fireplace... Ahhh....
