You know, every month I have the hardest time trying to come up with a blog post for my day of the month….not that day of the month…my RTG day of the month. I even considered reposting an old post, but didn’t find one interesting enough. So, be forewarned, this post could be mostly babble. Anyway, as usual, I’m doing a last minute post and getting it posted at zero hour. In my defense, it’s been a busy month…okay, when isn’t it a busy month? But, this month it’s been all about the grandbaby….when she would finally get here. She was due December 5th, but she decided to make us wait two weeks. Yep, as of yesterday, December 16 at 9:22 PM, my first grandchild, Allison Rose, was born!!!
Momma, daddy and baby are all doing well….considering it was a 36 hour labor and the hospital cafeteria food was about what you’d expect hospital cafeteria food to taste like. Having a baby in the house is going to make Christmas that much more fun. My kids are all adults now so the excitement and wonder in their faces during the holidays is pretty much gone. It’ll be fun to watch my son and daughter-in-law with their daughter, making new traditions or incorporating the ones we do. I can tell you, this is going to be one very loved and very spoiled child. Her aunts and uncle are already looking forward to teaching her all the things they love, like: the love of art, music, reading, baking. My son wants to teach her sports: baseball, football, golf. She’s going to be a well-rounded child.
Anyway, another reason the month/s have been crazy busy here is because we are getting ready to move back home to Texas. I’m really looking forward to getting back, being closer to my family, especially since everyone is getting older. Not to mention, being home will be helpful with my books since my stories all take place in Texas. Speaking of my books, they’ll make a great gift for your favorite reader. ;)
Thanks for reading. Have a very Merry Christmas and if you don’t celebrate, may you have a fabulous holiday!
Blessings for a wonderful New Year!
