This is the first time in 2 years that I’ll be home at Christmas. My mom and I are flying and my husband unfortunately will be staying behind, for 2 reasons. One- is because we’re getting new floors installed and he wants to be here. 2- We don’t like to leave the dogs behind in the winter. But for some reason Mom doesn’t remember that she has had 2 Christmases without my dad and in her mind she has never been without him on Christmas. So my husband and I made the decision to make her happy and cherish the memory that she will be with him on Christmas. I have mixed feelings of course, I will miss my husband terribly we have never been apart on Christmas, but you have to do what you have to do. Right?
I will be able to see my girls, and spend some time with my Sister in Law and my cousin. But it won’t be the same without him for sure. SO you see my predicament, right? I am always amazed at how amazing my husband is, and how he is willing to sacrifice time and time again, so my mom is happy and myself. He always jokes that it’ll be a holiday for him too. Maybe so, but I’ll never know. He always says he doesn’t want Birthday or Christmas Presents either, but I never listen. lol.
So I’m packing my luggage and the difficult part is that I’ll be pushing my Mom in her walker and the bags too. So I’m trying to pack as much as I can in one for me so I have less to carry. I have Christmas presents and of course my essentials Shakeology, workout clothes and my essential equipment. Then my regular clothes. I can’t believe I got most of it in! Now I just have to finish Mom’s luggage. Ugh, then we leave on Monday. Thank goodness we are staying at a hotel the night before the flight. There is no way I could do that, drive super early in the morning to make sure we get to the airport by 9 am.
Monday she has to get her hair done. It had to be the latest and closest to her seeing my dad(She wants to look her best) so my hairdresser is coming in on her day off to fix mom’s hair, then we have her denturist appt at 2pm. Finally we will be on the road to Regina, and I will be getting her set up and will go for a hot soak and relax before our flight. Going to be a long day on Tuesday but I’m excited to see my girls.
I have been trying to find a nice outfit to wear so that I can look my best ( I guess like mother like Daughter) and I came across these boots. Now a very long time ago I used to love shoes, and purses but hey that’s another post lol. Anyways, I have always wanted to have a pair of Red Jeans and I finally found a pair and those boots. So I just had to have them. They were pricey and the funny thing is that where I’m going has way more snow than we do out here lol. So I’m glad I bought them. Aren’t they the cutest?! I will definitely keep you posted on our next few days lol.
