Sweet memories, remembred


This morning I woke with an awful headache, along with the jaws, yesterday I started out with a somewhat of a sore throat, and stuffy nose, this morning its a full blown thing! Now, if I stand I breath some what better,maybe I should have slept standing up then. Larry was so kind yesterday, he helped me clean out our dresser, we're going to get rid of it, I'm donating it to Hospice, and in its place I want 2 chester thingy's ( cant think what the other part of the word is) 1 for him and 1 for me, he's a pack rat, in every sense of the word, that's why he helped me clean things out yesterday, too scared I'll throw something away and I did any ways, found some things, like a letter to Santa Clause from Amanda when she was little begging for a kitten, I mean she was litterly begging, if not a kitten then a "parote" as she spelled it or a scooter with small trucks, but went back to begging for a kitten, she even told him how she thought she was being a good girl by helping out in the house more, but now get this, she told the poor ol'guy that I yelled too much!!! I looked over at Santa and said "Well Santa Baby, did you believe her?" and Santa reminded me she got everything EXCEPT the "parote" that year.... I reread that little letter to her and folded back up stuck it back in the envelope addressed to "Santa c/o the North Pole" and put in her little box of collectibles, found pictures of my Johnathon smiling o'so big with his front teeth missing while holding a baseball bat, and delivery pictures of him, felt good to back in time with such wonderful memories, I miss my babies.....
Thanksgiving is fast approaching us and we will have it at Mom's, this is what she wants, I found a recipe for pumpkin pie that sounds real good, I'll post that recipe sometime this week, it's got Carmel drizzled on the top, and I think I'm going to try my hand at making cranberry sauce, I hear its reallllll easy, we'll see, and my brother would joke about putting walnuts in it, he knew I HATED walnuts, so the joke at every holiday was to put walnuts in everything, him and mom went as far as making, not one! but 2 walnut pies and trying to send one home with me, instead of her using pecans she used walnuts! I can hear him now telling me "Sis, it would taste better with walnuts in it" Sorry Joey, it's still not happening.....
I LOVE YOU ALL!!

Some days I just want to sit and go through all my "memories box" but then it takes me days to recover.. I raised two beautiful boys alone and we are like the 3 Musketeers. Everywhere we went people call us that... I miss those days.. Hope you get to feeling better and please let me know if you will have a different address before Christmas.. I will be sending out my cards early I hope..

Think of you often and pray for you always......

I hope that you're recovering from what sounds like a cold from hell! Do you have a netty pot? I've had one since I was a child, my sinuses are clean every morning, anyway! Are you talking about chest of drawers? That would be good, take up less space, hold more clothes! Love the letter to Santa and that she got her kitten!
