Merry Christmas! Hubby got a dog...

Hubby kept saying he wanted a dog, but would change his mind every other day to a cat. We already know we do NOT have good luck with animals, but.since we don't live on the main road now, this will go better. A friend of ours brought a puppy over this morning that someone apparently dropped off, and they couldn't keep it. Hubby is happy to have a stray dog... My thoughts? I've had this crazy daydream since we've been married that someone would leave a stray kid on our doorstep. Silly, yes. Improbable, yes. But hey, no dreams of big bellies here, so whatever!
Christmas is going well. Better than I ever dreamed actually! We've been busy little bees... And I've been praying for other people lot, too. We have several terminal cancer patients and newly widowed people in our church. And of course I'm thinking of the kids who need families, and families dreaming of kids. Sure, Christmas morning around our house is a little quiet and void of Santa, but only for a while longer.
Merry Christmas everybody!

mostly moved....

So we are mostly moved. As in, the stuff we need on a daily basis is here in the new house. Most of my kitchen is unpacked, I'm moving my clothes a few at a time, and I think we only have 2 more rooms of junk at the old house.
I'm posting tonight from my new toy. We went to get hubby a new phone a couple of weeks ago- I got a bla!ckberry, he couldn't make up his mind.
Last random thing....... I've been all calm and peaceful over the past two months about the holidays, but that almost came crashing down last night. We had our church Christmas dinner, we were running late, I forgot to wrap gifts for my class, and we missed most of it because we were wrapping in another room. Here's to being more prepared the rest of the time!
