Will probably go to the Indian reservation to get cheap cigs. We are going to Costco today. I am waiting for a prescription to be called in to Walgreens. John and Jennifer are helping out at Cami's school and should be home soon. Josh is home sick.
The days here are very busy and seem to pass quickly. It's morning and then BOOM, it's night. We went to Red Rock conservation area. The mountains are beautiful! Have seen dust devils and tumble weeds. So? For me they are something new and therefor exciting. I am easily pleased. Was able to get the kids Christmas gifts. They are large and not anything I could really ship. So...yay! Have gone out to eat a few times. Yum-o! Were hoping to go to Fire Mountain but it was too late in the day. Watched Josh's football game on Saturday then ran to church to hear Gabby (can't remember her last name) speak at church. She won the gold medal in gymnastics at the Olympics. Love this church.
Still peaceful-though often loud with the dogs and kids-and relaxing here. Yesterday...not so much. John and Jenn had a big argument with Mike and Shelly-Jenn's sister. They all live together and the house is large so that isn't a problem. It all started with John and Jenn wanting to get down the Christmas deckies. Mike blew a gasket. Can you say 'Roid Rage? Everyone yelling and swearing - not a common occurrence here. John said he almost got out a knife and stabbed Mike cuz Mike was all up in his face. Mike is a "body builder" and a bully. It ended with John and Jenn staying up in their room and telling the kids to come up there if /when they came in the house. Jenn was already looking for houses on-line. I told her to wait a week. She and Shelly talked later that night and there is an uneasy truce for now. I know things will go back to normal soon.
In my adult life there are so many things occurring that I can hardly believe. I was raised in a calm-though alcoholic-home. Not perfect but none of this drama. Each year brings something new.
Well John and Jenn are on their way home and then Jenn and I will be going out for awhile so I will close for now. Peace.
