For some reason I just couldn’t get this song, by Mike Posner, out of my head for the last couple of days and of course they don’t play it on the radio much these days. Thank goodness for YouTube.com which enabled me to find it and listen to it in order to get it out of my system.
This was another memorable Thanksgiving family dinner at my folks. We haven’t eaten anywhere else on Thanksgiving day since I can remember. The family gets bigger and bigger, people move away, some come back and you never really know who will actually show up until it happens. But there is always a house full and it takes days for my mother and father to completely recharge themselves and gear up for next month’s Christmas madness.
It caught everyone off guard with the announcement from our eldest daughter that she and her husband have confirmed that they are expecting their first born, sometime in the middle of the summer. That would be a great way to celebrate the 4th of July this year, and I’m sure she will be anxious to deliver if we have a really hot and humid summer. I’ve been told that there is nothing worse that dealing with a pregnancy in extreme weather, especially with heat.
They have been trying to conceive for a couple of years now. She has been taking really good care of herself along they way. She looks great and has been healthy as a horse. I can’t really remember hearing that she has been taking ill, even with the slightest cold, but of course I don’t get to talk with her as much as I would like to. I know she has been eating healthier and has been taking a liquid prenatal supplement faithfully for the last year. Actually since last Christmas if I remember correctly.
They have done a lot of research on the issue of taking prenatal supplements and there is proof that by taking them well before conception, during the pregnancy and well after that baby is delivered. She has a great doctor and I’m sure she will be in good hands up until the big day.
Last year I signed up for a service that emails me “The Slang Word Of The Day” and every day I would get an email with some of the most interesting and entertaining slang words that I got such a charge out of. Over time the emails slowed down and eventually stopped all together and I really didn’t think much of it, so today it was pretty cool to see in my email inbox today’s slang word of the day and it was a good one which prompted me to post it here on my blog today.
Today’s Online Slang Word – Mandal
* A sandal worn by a man
I have never heard this term before, so I can honestly say that I learned something today.
FREE Shipping and FREE Laser Engraving on their mens wedding rings at jewelryvortex.com is a nice way to start a relationship with an online jeweler, wouldn’t you say? I am deep in the middle of a marathon of online shopping for the majority of my holiday needs and wants. Last year I promised myself that I would go the extra mile this year and make every effort not to have to step into any brick and mortar store for any of the gifts, decorations and anything else that I might need to make it through the New Year!
With just a little over a month to go to Christmas day I feel as if I am getting behind and I fear that Christmas morning will be here before I can blink an eye. This year we are staying home for Thanksgiving, but we all ready have all that we need for the big day that we celebrate our thanks for the bounty that we are blessed to receive. It is the whole Christmas event that has me worried.
I am trying to keep from ordering anything online that doesn’t offer free shipping. That in it’s self is a huge savings and keeps me coming back for more.
Got an email from my pre-teen nephew who will be turning 13 on November 27th, which is coming up quickly. Hard to believe that the little squirt will be a full blown teenager, he was such a good little man, but nothing good lasts forever, right. Anyway he was urged to send out emails to the family members that will be attending his birthday celebration dinner that evening, giving us some much needed gift suggestions that he can come up with.
It seems that he is interested in furthering his coin collection that he was so crazy about back when he was much younger and that he has been neglecting for the past several years. But he has now realized how much fun it is and how valuable his collection could be some day so he is asking for various gold coins that he researched and listed in the email in order to help rekindle his enthusiasm of collecting coins.
I’m all for that idea and finding collectable coins is pretty easy these days with the use and ease of the Internet. And they are certainly affordable, at least for now.
