If you ever are wondering how old I am in the years to come, just "Google" what year the Super Bowl is and there you go!
There's a storm brewing - not here unfortunately. For days they've predicted wild amounts of snow and wind. Currently, we have a driving rain storm. I feel like our area has been suddenly moved to Arkansas or South Carolina. It's been a dud of a winter as far as snow goes.
The slightly amusing part of it was yesterday I made a brief stop at a grocery store and it was swamped with people loading up on bread, eggs, and milk for this (rain) storm. Silly people.
I was informed my my wise older sister to drink a lot of green tea to fight this virus. So I did. In fact, I put some in a glass bottle before I left to hit the grocery store. As I came out of the restroom carrying my bottle, I had a little private giggle thinking of handing it to someone to hold while I looked at something. Why? This is what it looked like. And it was perfectly warm.
This past Sunday, we celebrated the birthday of my mother-in-law. I know I've said nice things about her before, but I want to offer up this glimpse of who she is. We happened to have dinner with them the Sunday before because of relatives in town. As we were leaving I said, 'your birthday is next Sunday! We should have you over for dinner.'. Her response was 'oh I know you are busy. Don't worry about it. If it works out, that's ok, but we don't have to either.' That's the kind of person she is. Putting others before herself. I am taking mental notes because I want to be that kind of mother-in-law should the opportunity present itself.
Here's a blast from the past. I found this in the basement.
That is the Chairman! That is me! That is about the first time I think we ever sat next to each other. We were on a raft trip for five days together in Utah. He looks very, very serious. I am smiling with my braces on my teeth in my mid-20's sporting my watermelon-colored shorts. Little did I know that the terrorist-looking fella would one day be my true love and the father to our children. Life is so interesting isn't it?
Happy Tuesday to you!
