Looking ahead

There is much to look forward to.... I'm looking forward to the election being over and not having to watch continual ads on t.v. anymore as well as get oodles of phone calls on a daily basis. I'm anxious about the outcome... our country is in such turmoil and it will take extreme measures to right the wrongs that have been happening for many years - I'm not sure either candidate is up to it.

I am looking forward to having all of our family 'home for Christmas'. Even Don's mother is coming.... the first time she has been away from home for Christmas - EVER! She turns 87 tomorrow! So I'm thinking of many ways to make this Christmas 'extra special'.

I'm even being brave enough to look forward to the end of April/first of May.... Millie graduates from Utah State University and we will make another Utah Trek. They are always good trips, but this one will come with changes.... where will she get a job and will we be helping her move?

I'm looking forward to being able to play Christmas music and feeling the relaxation that comes as the soothing melodies permeate our home.

I'm looking ahead to two glorious weeks off of work! I enjoy my job - I enjoy being at home with my family more.
