Looks like we got the white Christmas we've always wanted...at least in Lubbock it is...and if you're trying to get to Lubbock or out of Lubbock, goodluck! I tried to leave Blane's house this morning, but had a 3 foot snowdrift blocking me in plus the wind was blowing so hard, it was like a whiteout...couldn't have seen where I was going anyway. I finally made it to the hospital at 2:00...the normal 8 minute drive from Blane's turned into 28 minutes, but I made it safely. I asked his PT what kind of day he had, and her eyes lit up and she said, "Oh my gosh, he had the best morning ever!" I was so glad to hear that. No therapy for Christmas day, but he will get 3 hours of group therapy on Saturday to make up for Friday. I'll be heading back out to Blane's in a little bit...hate to leave Rick so early in the day, but I don't want to wait 'til dark, plus I have Santa Clause presents in my car. Rick and I talked earlier about what we would be missing this year at Christmas. I said, "what do we usually do on Christmas Eve?" and he said "go to Seymour to Mildred's (my g'ma)" And I said what do we do there? and he said "play Chinese Christmas" and I said, "& after that?" he said "play poker". Don't ask me how that tradition started, but that's what has happened at Grandma's house for as long as I can remember, and Rick always made Chinese Chrismas fun. ONe year my Aunt Robin stole a vest from Rick that he really wanted, and so the next year he took something like a vase or a cookie jar or something that he didn't care anything about, but Robin liked, just to get her back! He's always stirring up trouble. But, that's okay...we'll make it next year.
Hope everyone has a great Christmas, and don't get busted putting out Santa Clause like I did last year by Riley...I wasn't sneaky enough! God Bless You all!
Thanks be to God for his gift that is too wonderful for words. 2 Corinthians 9:15
