Come home take the dogs out. Have a cup of tea. If son has a soccer game go  to that. Call my Mom to see how her day went. DH arrives home around 3:30, spend some time with him, cook supper.  Sew ... take the dogs out ..Call my sister and touch base with her. Sew some more, spend some time on the computer.

If you could have something made for you what would it be? A nice dinner!

What was the best Christmas gift you have ever received? The best Christmas gift I ever received was in 1993. My Father had just passed away from ALS on December 9th, and I had beenin a car accident and broke my neck. My son( who is named after my Dad) was only almost three, and he gave me a lilte gold heart bracelet. he told me how he rode his bike down to the store pickout the present and wrapped it up. When I opened the gift he said "Oh how pretty! What is it?" The look on his precious face is something that I will never forget. He makes my heart sing!


Do you have a story that would make us all laugh? Humm... I've thought about this and at first I didn't think I had one but here it goes... Years ago when the remake of the movie "The Fly" came out, a friend told me it was the best movie she ever saw. So one night DH and I decided to rent a movie ...I insisted on that  movie against DH's objections. It has to be the worst movie I have ever seen! It grossed me out so much that I couldn't watch it and tried to shut it off. DH told me, "You rented it you watch it." So I did . After it was over, I went to bed and he stayed up. I'm Laying in bed and I hear a scratching noise ..I thought it was may dog scratching.. I told him to stop it and rolled over. He kept scratching and it was really annoying me so I sat up in bed and started to yell at him. Just as I opened my mouth ... an arm came up out of nowhere  and landed on my lap! I let out the loudest scream ... and jumped out of bed and started to run out of the room tripping over my  DH hysterically laughing and rolling on the floor. I wanted smack him but it was kinda funny. :^D
