So, we continued driving and turned onto our county road. Headlight upon headlight kept coming at me. I pulled over again, trembling and crying. Cool called. "You can't just stop here! There is no shoulder. You have to keep going!" As I blubbered, "You told me there wouldn't be oncoming traffic! You lied to me!" We made it home but I will never live down the day I pulled over and cried. Twice. When Cool heard the forecast for this weekend he said, "Sounds like another one of those storms where you will have to pull over and cry." I eyed him something fierce but concurred.
No slip again today. I need to fill up the rest of our countdown house. I have just been lazy. But we caught up on everything and baked more cookies.
1. The Cinnamon Bear
2. A Bach Christmas Advent Calendar
3. Silent Night Illustrations
4. Nativity set for Grandma and Grandpa--I printed this and thought it would be a nice way to send a nativity to my parents for the camper. Plus it adds a personal touch because the picklets are coloring them.
5. Listened to The Life and Adventures of Santa Clause We listen to this every year. It was recommended to me from the Santa at the mall years ago. He would hug the kids and say, "I love you more than the brightest star." I don't know, it has just stuck with me and we love the book.
That's about it. Sweet had gymnastics. Dill spent time at my MIL's house. I spent the evening at the coffee shop sipping a chocolate banana smoothie and listening to the Mama Mia Soundtrack.
