Countdown to Christmas- Giveaway #1

Okay, I’m a little behind.  As we slid into the weekend, I wasn’t in the mood for anything- just a blanket, some tea and a good movie to cry to.  Thank goodness I ran into an old friend Friday night and that cheered me up immensely.

Jeannie and I used to take the kids out early on Saturday mornings because our (ex) husbands used to sleep until noonish.  (Ask me if I ever got to sleep till noon.  I worked a full-time, normal-houred job as well as kept the house, volunteered at church and entertained the kids.  I was ALWAYS up early.  I guess being a couch-potato was hard work and required lots of sleep.)  We’d go to the movies, the park and once to the Renaissance Festival in Sands Point.  We always had a good time, and had lost touch over the years.  Thanks to Facebook, we found each other again, and it turns out she’s a bus driver on the (dreaded) N6!  She recognized me immediately and since I wasn’t paying attention and grouchy at the thought of taking the bus home, it took me a minute to even register a woman was driving.  It was a nice ride home chatting and gossiping (she’s a better driver than almost all the other bus maniacs.  She drove while talking and was STILL careful and smooth on the brakes!)  We promised to go to dinner soon and seeing her put me in a better mood for the weekend.

I am not a Grinch anymore.
