I am a loser!

I know, I know
for not posting more often!

We had a very nice Thanksgiving. At my sisters. She & her hubby did all the cooking. It was great. All I had to do was show up! So relaxing! And I didn't even end up having to work at the hospital because my co-worker (that I work with on the weekends) wanted the extra hours and offered to work it for me!! YEA!! (Thanks N!)

But there have been a few things going on.

Tink got into MAJOR trouble! I would not have blogged about the details here anyway because I don't wont the whole world to know, but it has been emotional for all of us.

My BIL, my above sister's hubby, got yet another DUI Friday night after he wrecked his vehicle. And he checked himself into a treatment center. And again he barely blew over the legal limit, but it's still over. He isn't a stumbling drunk nor is his consumption a lot, he just doesn't make wise decisions. He tries so hard to please people that sometimes in order to get the acceptance he puts himself at risk. But hopefully he will get the help he needs because this has been very difficult on my sister!

My community has lost yet another teenager this week. That makes 3 since April! One due to natural causes - he had had an heart condition his whole life, but during PE he wasn't feeling well and went to the restroom and that is where the students the teacher sent to go check on him found him. The next 2 from senseless car accidents. Neither had been drinking or screwing around just bad driving decisions. I just try to remember that as traumatic as it is to lose young people that for whatever reason it was God's plan.

I have the whole weekend off so I'm going to try to get a big push going on the holiday shopping & baking this weekend. And as you can see I am using my time wisely on the computer! LOL

But I do think I just heard the dryer buzz, so I probably better get busy!!

Wow, a lot happening in your world. I am sorry that Tink is in trouble. I am praying that it all works out well. And praying for your relative. Scary times.

I shopped solely on line, so much less stress. Needed it this year.

Hugs to you and what are you baking?
