I made it!

Okay, I made it to the holiday break. Yea! The atmosphere at school has had such thick tension that you could cut it with a knife. But, we kept it rather light in the library. In fact, Shannon and I are applying to be on the Amazing Race. It will be filming this summer and because it looks like I won't be getting Grace this summer, it could possibly be something exciting to do. Of course, getting even an interview will be an act of God. But, it has been fun filling out the application and getting together our video. Who wouldn't want to see the crazy library chicks run a race for a cool million???

I am going to clean my house because I am hosting Christmas. I'm making turkey, dressing, having tamales, rolls, beans, rice, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, rolls and of course yummy dessert. Because our extended family is having issues right now over my grandparents, it'll be my immediate family which is fine by me. I love my parents and sister and her kiddos. We hope to go to see that movie about things coming to life in the museum. I would like to see my grandparents, but who knows what will happen. Right now there's a division about the care they need. I feel bad for my mother because that is not the stress she needs. My grandparents need around the clock care. My mother is 65 and my dad is 62. I help them out and they aren't as strong as they used to be. My mom is very nervous when driving and my dad's vision isn't too keen. I do a lot of the driving. I really don't think my parents are able to take care of them 24/7 when it's their weekend. There is no way that my parents could lift my grandmother if something happens. They need other care. It's not that my parents won't take care of them, it's just that they AREN'T able. I wish my aunts and uncle would get that!!!!!

I still have a few things that I need to buy and then I need to wrap gifts. I finally put up my tree and got a new DVD player and hooked it up. I'm set. I also have to clean like a maniac.

Tomorrow, my parents may need me to help them with my grandparents. I'm on standby. If I had Grace, there is no way that I would be able to do this. I guess the only thing I can do is pray about it.

So, it's almost a year since I got the e-mail saying I made it into the singles program and almost 7 months since I have been LID. I know I've been waiting a long time but they say good things come to those who wait. I had a dream last night that it was Gotcha Day. Boy, Grace was extremely sassy! I'm sure that will come true!
