It has been a long time since I’ve blogged anything, guess I’ve just been lazy or my life is just that boring. Regardless, I am taking the time to share just how wonderful my husband and mother-in-law (mom as I refer to her) truly are.
My husband and I put up our Christmas tree yesterday and I was fussing again about not having a tree skirt. Well, I used to have a Mickey Mouse one with my maiden name (Orman) on it that my mother gave to me and my kid’s year’s ago. Last Christmas, since both of the kid’s were staying with her she took it back. So back to putting up the tree… somewhere along the line, my husband secretly called his mom to tell her that they needed to work on getting me a tree skirt because he knew how upset I was over my old one. Just by luck, she was at The Christmas Tree Shoppe when he called, lol. A few hours later her and her husband showed up with a tree skirt for me. It wasn’t just ANY tree skirt, it had the final words from ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas on it… And to All a Goodnight. What makes it so special is that, every year she buy’s my husband and his brother a different ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas book, last year it was the one that she could record her voice. Which of course they give her a hard time and tell her that they don’t like, but in this family, TRADITON and FAMILY means EVERYTHING!
How did I get so lucky?
