I got IT!!!!!!!!!

IT happens to be the vintage--brand new---discontinued--Blues Clues STeve's Handy Dandy Notebook!!!!! whoo hoo for me---good mom award! This is all my little guy would even care about this Christmas--He hangs on everywhere he goes to this old, beat-up one handed down from his nephew to nephew for ~14 yrs now---it is all scratched up and he likes it better than the new ones (b/c they come apart and this one doesn't). This vintage notebook was recalled b/c the coil could break--whatever! It was made much better than the one out now. So we are in for Christmas! and i got a decent price b/c the listing wasn't under "notebook"--yeah--i love when you get a find! We also got him Magneatos which seem to be really great--we'll see--magnetic block building. I will try to post a pic later! Happy Christmas!

Christmas Program

OK, just have to vent, I am really stressed out as somehow I was asked to be "costume-coordinator" for our church's Christmas program this year! I know that you, who know me, are laughing--as you should be. Why they asked me? I have no idea--i have never even seen their program and didn't even know where the costume closet was, not to mention this program is on Dec 15th and i was contacted Nov 28 (not enough time)... you may ask why did you accept? well, i didn't--i said i would help but did not want any kind of leadership responsibility--when i showed up for the first meeting, i realized that the other two helpers skipped and my name was in charge--aagh! I believe in church service but "the need is not the call" and you should have a bit of background or gift and now i am sucked in. Please Pray for a Christmas miracle.

Alan Jackson concert

"Remember When the sound of little feet was the music we danced to week to week..."

So, we went to the Alan Jackson concert last night--outdoors on the grass with a nice balmy 68 degree breeze--gotta love Florida! Wreckers and Little Big Town opened and when LBT did "Boondocks" the crowd went nuts--i love it when a big (probably football player) guy with jeans,a flannel with the arms cut off showing his cut arms, and a curled-up straw hillbilly cowboy hat got in the aisle and did a slow-grungelike dance to this song--it was awesome--and sure enough, he had a few hottie girls dancin' with him in no time. It was perfect...AJ did Cornbread and Chicken "where i come from" with a whole video presentation of West Palm Beach--loved it, "Itty Bitty" which my husband and i love b/c we can totally relate, "livin' on love","it's 5:00 somewhere"--which everyone went nuts as he filmed that video right here in my hometown at my favorite beach bar The Square Grouper (squaregrouper.net). He has a house here in Jupiter and lucky people occasionally see him around. and more.."right on the money" but he did not do "tall,tall trees" which i love. Best part,of course, was a memory i will always have now of my Edward holding me close to "Remember When"--that was worth it all---I am such a sucker for history as it is the one thing you can never take back so you better do it right in the present--it's sacred and we have a love and respect that hopefully,God-willing will be there til the day we die. I can never get through the line about dancin' to little feet w/o crying--i love those little feet and it's the hardest thing i've ever done. I am very loyal and that song just sums it all up for me. There are good and bad times and you just got to ride it out. My husband whispered "i'd do it all again"--wow! I love that man! The whole concert was worth that.
