Presents, Parties & Problems!!!!!

Christmas is rapidly approaching and I don't think I will be able to blog again before it comes. I thought I would take this rare opportunity to update everyone. First, Christmas at church was yesterday. I had planned to get up super early since our play was at 10:00 a.m. I had presents, food and play stuff to take and then caroling clothes. I knew the day would be wild so I tried to get as much together as I could Saturday night.
Sometimes no matter how much we try or how good our intentions are, things just get overlooked. Even though I did all the cooking Saturday night, I still had to load it in the car Sunday morning and then into Tim's truck. I love to cook for church but, this is always an obstacle since the mountain is less than cooperative with tupperware. lol Anyway I also had gifts, and clothes to go caroling in to put in the truck. You should have seen it! Tim hates clutter in the truck and he was definately not liking this. I kept telling him it was temporary!
Well needless to say we arrived at Church at 9:58 a.m. Not exactly early, but we were there with all the needed items and in one piece. Luckily the play couldn't start without us! All went well and the church really liked the play and its message. Preacher Lee had a great message as always and dinner was really good too! When it came to presents we did dirty santa. The men went first and it was quite funny! I think nearly every man traded. The women were kinder, and less quick to take someone's gift. Tim ended up with some nice work gloves and I got a NICE crock pot! I was pretty excited, and I knew mom would be too since her's has seen better days. lol After dinner we opted out of the caroling. I was glad since the weather was less than desireable to be riding around in the back of the truck.
By the time we got home, Tim and I, were both worn out! After a nap and snack we headed to Oak Ridge Hospital. Tim's papaw is in a room now, and they say his lungs are clearing up. I can't believe he was on a vent just days ago, and now breathing on his own. I would love to see him home for Christmas, but I don't know if that is a possiblity.
By the time I got home, unloaded my car, brushed my teeth and said my prayers I was so ready to see the back of my eyelids. lol No seriously it was a really long and crazy day.
I am sure this will be my last blog until after the holidays are over so..............
Merry Christmas
Happy New Year!
