Fourteen Days til Christmas

Well, we finally got our lights up and last night we turned them on and had a section that was out. GRRR! And it was on the highest peak of the house of course. So hubby went up there today and replaced the whole string. These LED lights are so nice. We have 6 strings all plugged together and only one plug to the house power. They are such low voltage you can plug in like 40 strings on one circuit. Isn't that cool? I think I am just going to put up my little tree this year. It's quick and easy to put up and it has built in lights. I have small ornaments for it and I think it will be perfect. I haven't been on here in the last few days. I have been a bit upset with a family issue. My daughter and her DH (dumbass husband) up and decided to move to California. No planning, no money, no kids. Her oldest is 18 so he doesn't have to go and the younger one is 14 but lives with his Dad. I was so upset that she just left the boys at Christmas time. Well, nothing I can do about it but continue to pray for her to come to her senses. Enough said on that subject. I made a meatloaf I got from the Martha Stewart website tonight and it was really good. While it was cooking it smelled terrific. Hubby is doing pretty well with his diet. He's already lost 6.5 pounds the first week. He hasn't had a regular soda in 2 days. He saw how much better his blood sugar was when he didn't drink one. He even ordered just water yesterday when we were out with friends for dinner. I was amazed. Now he just needs to start exercizing. I think he will, he doesn't want to become disabled over this thing so I am pretty sure he will do his best to improve his health. Tomorrow I have about a billion things to do. I need to get stamps so I can mail my Christmas cards. I 've had them addressed and ready to go and keep forgetting to buy stamps. Then I have to go to Walmart for a few things and the vet to pick up food for my Chloe and a couple of other stores for other things. Tomorrow night and Saturday and Sunday our church is having a drive thru Christmas program called "Journey Through Christmas" They had it last year and we went to it and were really impressed. It is so well done and they give out hot chocolate or apple cider to all the passengers of the cars driving through. My hubby reluctantly took a part as one of the guards for King Herod. I'll be serving cider and chocolate to the guests. Should be a fun weekend.
