grrr – I am trying to place an order with this bookstore and I have a thingy here for money off and it keeps telling me the number on it is invalid. Grrrrrrrr
Went to the high school football state championship game today – Ste. Gen was playing – they lost 35 to 0 (at least, we left with like 4 minutes left) – so that sucked. But it was fun I guess.
So anyway that was today.
Yesterday I just stayed home and we didn’t go out in the evening because Steve went to help Jon clean his deer, etc.
Hope you all had a good one!
In honor of the holiday, I would like to well, give Thanksgiving…
First and foremost, I am thankful for Jesus my Savior. I thank Him for giving me salvation and life and life abundantly.
Secondly I am thankful for Steve and Elijah, I cannot list them one before the other as they are equally special to me.
I am also thankful for all the people in my life, including but not limited to: both of our immediate families, grandparents, great-grandmother, aunts, uncles, cousins, and our special friends, you know who you are.
I am thankful for those that have passed on, that I had the opportunity to know before they died, Grandma D, Grandpa J, C…
Yes, I am also thankful for Rimshot as he brings even more joy to my life.
I am thankful for the roof over my head, be it small and unfinished and usually messy…
I am thankful for the vehicles that get us to where we need to go.
I am thankful for the food that I have to eat every day and the water I have to drink.
I am thankful for the beauty of the earth and the animals and the heavens.
The list goes on and on and if I continued, I would never stop.
Thank you God for all that I have mentioned and the things I have in my mind and the things that I do not even know I am supposed to be thankful for or that I have. Thank you for loving me and keeping me, yes, even a sinner like me.
here is a really cool site: mrpicassohead.com – I just stumbled on it.
Anyway…. uh tonight we went to the Thanksgiving service at church. Not sure why they were calling it that though, it was just like any other Wednesday except there were no classes and stuff, just church.
Tomorrow we are going to Steve’s grandma’s and then to my aunt’s. We were just going to go to his grandma’s but now we are going to add my aunt’s too – I miss all them guys and I think Steve wants to talk to my uncles. They seem to have a lot of common interests… guns, hunting, kshe, football, etc.
Elijah is laid down now but he only went down at 10:30, so I have a feeling that he might not stay there long but get back up and need to be fed one more time. We are just staying up way too late, it’s starting to get to me, I think I need some more sleep. But there are some things I have to wait to do until he’s asleep or they don’t get done.
I’m gonna have to get Erin – or well, I would have if I hadn’t been online at the right time. She sent me four HUGE picture files and took my email box from like 12% to 110% – suddenly Yahoo was yelling at me lol. So if you guys got large attachments to send, send them to my holifieldweb.net addy – I have that one set up to receive up to 50 megs, instead of just 6. But also note that all of you with holifieldweb.net addresses do not have 50, just me, heehee. :-) You guys have anywhere from 4 to 10, I don’t remember. Prolly depends on who ya are.
I made dirt cake today. Made two: one to take tomorrow and one for us to leave here. I knew that if I took it somewhere neither Steve or I would get any, so I went ahead and made two. But it’s more like 1 1/2 and a 1/2 lol. (If that makes any sense).
Oohhh, people on ebay make me mad. So I was bidding on this bird’s eye view of Ste. Genevieve (old postcard) – this was the 2nd one – and I had been winning it all week for $7.75. Now, normally I wouldn’t spend that much on a stinkin postcard, but I really really wanted this one. 45 minutes before the auction is over, someone raised the bid to $15.00. I went in there at 15 min before and was like no way am I paying that much. I was so ticked I raised their bid – not much but enough that I knew I would not win the auction but would raise the price. I know, not very nice. But it apparently doesn’t matter to this guy, according to his feedback, he’s bought several postcards at the range of $15-20, just from the few I looked at. I also got outbid on the Veggie Tales Jonah DVD, but that’s okay. Now I am just bidding on the Ste. Genevieve piggy bank from the 50′s – it ends tomorrow morning around 8 I believe. My luck someone will grab that, too, as I’ve been winning all week. Grrr…
“Can you say Hemi?” I hate that commercial, grrrr….
I guess I will go to bed now :-D
