And more importantly the Cuckoos of the Casa had much to celebrate.
Sweet Man has a new job with Bernalillo County which starts on December 7. Yay. Making finding a job, his job for 4 months solid has come to an end (says no one ever at our house) but at least there will be no more quiet zone 24/7 in the living room. It was hard on all of us. We are all pleased that SM will be otherwise occupied for part of the day. And he will be back on track for being happy. But now it will be completely my duty to pick up the grands from school. Betcha I can handle that one though.
Shelley's new job is working out so well for her. She has paid holidays and weekends off. This was the first Halloween evening that she wasn't so exhausted from waiting tables all day and spent a great night with the grands. And Thanksgiving was a completely unheard of holiday for her because she had today off and we actually just played lazy family. She was thrilled.
RyLeigh loves his school, his mates and has come so far this year academically but the best part is that he is actually a 6th grade boy. Obnoxious, silly and full of himself. Makes us all proud and crazy.
GK has brought her grades back up to all A's after a bit of a wake up call first semester. She has already been accepted into the staffing of the summer recreation program for the City of Albuq. She is so very excited to be able to work with special needs kiddos.
And this olde broad is celebrating the verdict on the health scare. I lost 31 lbs, but seem to have found 2 while nursing a knee injury after me and the elliptical had an encounter of the screaming kind. I'm beginning back to only water aerobics starting this next week with no machines for another 2 weeks. But hey 29 is not bad for a slacker like me.
All of us are healthy, happy and blessed. No one can complain when they have all that going for them. We are truly thankful.

Our immediate plans are to go down south to the great little town of Belen (which means Bethlehem in Spanish) to their light parade tomorrow night. We'll pack in the Expedition and go park along the route, have our hot cocoa, popcorn, homemade cookies and enjoy a small town event. Looking forward to another Cuckoo night.
Sunday we will decorate our two big trees. The family one (we made all the trimmings) and the posh golden tree with glass, prisms and fru frus. Then this week we will put up the outside lights and I'll decorate my gnome and elf tree (small one). I also plan on enjoying a week with my Sweet Man before he goes back to the land of the employed.
Ms. Baggs will divulge her box opening at Ye Olde Crone's Gazette and I'll post a three part series, "How to cross the line and live to tell the tale" here. That and only one more present to finish and Bob is someone's uncle......as they say.
I hope you all enjoyed a time to give thanks and share love.
Smooches & Squoozes,
