Tomorrow night, our daughter and son in law arrive and the festivities begin! Am I ready? Well, let's just say I'm as ready as I'll every be. I should be baking some chocolate chip cookies but I'm writing a post with a kitten on my lap and that is where I want to be.
Holly Berry and Frodo are getting along pretty well for less than two weeks. I babysit for Frodo's groomer who is a dog trainer and she knows everything. I arrived at work this morning and just gave all the worries and fears to her. She told me I should relax (HA!). Seriously though, she thinks everything is going great. So we are moving forward to getting these two pets used to each other.

I'm trying to figure out when I will do a weekend post...since Christmas eve is on Sunday. I'm leaning towards Sunday morning. Sometimes I daydream of blogging once a week during these busy times, but you know what? I am a talker, so it's like sitting in silence and you're dying to tell someone a secret. So I doubt I'll take a break. Three times a week works best for me for now.

I'm proud that I took charge of my health and joined the gym. I feel stronger and so much better. I'm glad I said yes to babysitting. I love being a caregiver to a tiny human who is looking at the world with fresh eyes. I will always stop and rescue animals. Always.
My life is full and good.
Now if I could only quit the worrying. That would be a miracle. I know that if I get enough rest and stick with a schedule of some sorts my worrying eases. Right now, I'm mellow (cat sleeping on my lap helps). I'd like to get better and being mellow when my mind is racing.
Maybe some meditating? My sister does it and swears by it.
I'm wishing all of you a happy winter solstice a wonderful holiday season! You should eat one too many cookies, laugh until you're gasping for air, sit and stare at your blessings and the beauty around you.
Thank you all for reading this blog, for your friendship and encouragement. Thank you for the comments and all you silent readers. I value this space and the friendships forged through commonalities. I am lucky!
