Ricky made it home in time for us to not have to postpone New Year's Eve...that would have been an impossibility! LOL
2012 was coming whether we were ready or not.
was pretty upset when he realized he would not be here for Christmas.
Savana didn't care for the idea of postponing the opening of her
Christmas presents, either. The thought of having to walk past them
under the tree everyday knowing she wasn't gonna open any of them til
daddy got home was almost more than she could stand.
She asked me, "Can you just hide all my presents somewhere so I don't have to see them under the tree everyday? I don't think I can take it... I might just have to peek."
No way, girl!! We are gonna suffer through this together, damn it. (To be on the safe side, I put extra tape on her gifts.)
don't understand it, but lately I can not get a picture of her without
her having made some silly face... "Everybody does that, momma. Not just me!"
wonderful happened while Ricky was home this last week. He was offered
a job hauling salt water for an oilfield service. He took it and he
I could not be happier. He will be home everyday and make better money.
long haul trucking business is not for us. We had no idea when Rick
took that job that he'd be gone from home for however long it took him
to log 10,000 miles... he was told he'd be gone a week at first...
"You'll be home for Thanksgiving, so just pack enough clothes and
toiletries for the week."
Ignorance is bliss. We were just thrilled for him to have a job when there are so many that don't.
I have everyone's attention I'd like to mention that Savana's 5th grade
class has the opportunity to take a trip to Washington, DC this year.
We have to raise $1,272 for her to go.
I googled Oklahoma's gun laws concerning the purchase, sale and transporting of a firearm and here is what I found:
I also checked into Texas gun laws, since the rifle was actually purchased there: http://www.texasgunlaws.org/
If anyone is interested in helping us send Savana on this once
in a lifetime trip to Washington, DC you may email me at:
I am not opposed to donations, either. LOL If you'd like to
help but don't want the rifle. I promise I won't go and buy any beer
with your money. We really want Savana to be able to go on this trip.
