Well Sunday was my birthday. I really wanted to go to church on my birthday since I haven’t been able to make it in a while. My husband went to a card game at his friend’s house Saturday night and came home around 1am or something like that. I woke up when he came in and couldn’t get back to sleep. He and I started talking and playing games on the Kindle together and I stayed up until time to go to church and he stayed up with me!!!! It was so good to see my friends at church. I really miss talking with people. When I’m not feeling well for so long I don’t get out at all and it gets really lonely. Plus I get my sleeping schedule mixed up and then I’m awake when everyone else is sleeping so then I’m really alone. It was so good to spend that time talking with my husband and then seeing so many friends at church. They are going on a temple trip in January and I really want to go. I’ve never been to a temple and I’m really curious. The Anchorage temple is the closest so the church is chartering a bus. I really hope I can go but I’m also nervous about going without my husband. He doesn’t do church stuff.
When I got home I was hurting because of getting cold but I was hungry too so I made Thanksgiving dinner LOL Since I didn’t get to have any on Thursday I got out all the fixings. I made stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy…..baked some Pillsbury biscuits and got out the cranberry sauce. Then we all just reheated some turkey from Thursday. Riley had a friend that spent the night and he had brought a box of mac n’ cheese. He was pretty glad to have roast beast instead. This kid is great too. I spent some time talking to him last night and I wanted to adopt him!!!!! He’s in Riley’s 8th grade class and we was also at the poetry slam. I saw him there and I wished Riley would make friends with a kid like that. Then Riley comes home from school one day with him. Yes! He just moved off the military base so he’s really close now. He’s really smart and is great to talk to. He’s great for Riley too because Riley tends to say things like “I can’t do that” or “I’m not strong enough” and this kid tells him he’s wrong. One time I heard him tell Riley he was a lot smarter than he thought he was. This kid reminds me a lot of my older son Jared only he is more outgoing. I think that is why Riley likes him. He wants to do things with his brother but Jared just stays cooped up in his room and reads or is on the computer. Anyway, he’s a good friend and opened up some fantastic conversations at our house! I love him!
Well after I ate and then beat my husband at words with friends on the kindle I was extremely tired. I tried to stay awake as long as I could and knit for a while but I eventually lost the battle. I went to sleep around 4pm and woke up about 1 am again. I really hate waking up when everyone else is sleeping! My dog really missed me though. I didn’t realize how long it had been since I’d spent time with her. She heard me as soon as I came out of my room and pounced out to see me. She cried and cried and leapt up on my lap and tried to lick me. I don’t do face licks since I know where else she licks! Now she’s sleeping on my lap and making it hard to type.
I do feel better than I have in a while. I think that is mainly from getting out and seeing people! I have to do that more often. I feel like working on some mandalas. I’m way behind in the class.
