Well, after my little gripe session the other day, we put up our blasted Christmas tree yesterday because the oldest grandson will be here for Thanksgiving and hubby wanted it up.

The last pair I got were to big, boy did I mess up that time. I thought I could wear a size 22, boy was I wrong. So this time, I ordered 2 pair in size 20, 1 pair are flannel lined for the winter. I had a pair of those about 4 years ago, and lived in them all winter, they were so comfortable, but I outgrew them and gave them to my daughter who has lost weight, so she could wear them.

The flannel lined will come in handy in a couple of weeks when we go to Eagle Days the first weekend in December. I understand from our weather folks that it will be really cold. At least I'll be comfy! And warm!!

Blogger gold that is. I found a whole bunch of blogs that are dedicated to the primitive. You know, primitive knick-knacks and primitive living, that sort of thing. I LOVE that stuff. My dream is to someday be able to live in a log cabin.

Ok, I need some help. I would like to put a picture with my header, but I don't know where to look for one. Can anyone help? I would really appreciate it.

I have not worn a dress in almost 2 weeks. Please don't judge to harshly, but, I seem to get more housework done when I'm wearing pants, whether it be jeans or sweat pants, it doesn't matter what type of pants I wear, I just seem to get more done. Maybe I'm wired differently than other people (haha)!

Speaking of dresses, why is it that some women think they can wear just anything to church. I mean really, when you go to church, you should at least DRESS DECENTLY! I get so tired of seeing women in jeans or mini skirts and showing skin. It is just DISGUSTING that these people have no RESPECT for the LORD or for his house. In fact, in this Sunday's bulletin the Pastor said that very thing. It was so nice to see that in the bulletin. Granted, it was directed towards the people who help serve; such as: the readers, the Eucharistic Ministers, you know, people like that, but I think it should apply to everyone going to church!

Now, on to Christmas. What is it with people, it is not even Thanksgiving yet, and I am hearing Christmas music already, and of course seeing all the decorations out. Of course all of the retailers are concerned with getting the almighty dollar and making their profits, but still it bugs me that the American people seem to have forgotten all about the First true American Holiday, THANKSGIVING!

OK, I think I'm done now, I just had to vent a little.

We had a very quiet night last night, no trick-or-treaters. I think they all went elsewhere. My husband actually forgot that it was Halloween.

Hubby had pre-ordered Windows 7 and installed it on his computer last night. He had been running it for about 6 months and really likes it, says it is better than Vista.

This morning he is going to the hospital to do some volunteer work as a Eucharistic Minister for his church. His priest is having him also do this at one of the Sunday masses also.
We went Friday to talk to the lady who is in charge of the Volunteers at the Hospital, and she even asked me if I had thought about volunteering, I told her that I had in the past and she suggested that I really consider it, so I am. ( since I can't seem to find a real job)!

I had to order a new pair of Jeans on Friday. I have been wearing dresses everyday, but there are a couple of things that we do that I prefer to wear Jeans for, and those are: Hiking, and Motorcycle riding. Anyway, I get my Jeans from L.L.Bean.
They are the only place where I can get them that are made right and they fit me right.

Until next time!
