I am about climbing the walls. We were hoping Hubs would make it home "sometime" this month. I have paperwork that needs his signature that will expire if he doesn't make it in 10 days. We figured we would have to start from scratch with that because he was in south texas. Freight out of there has been...not good? Yeah, let's go with that. It sounds better than pi$$ poor.
Anyway, I just talked to him and he has a load coming out of texas Friday! And it comes all the way up just north of chicago?!! Hot diggity!
We decided to have him come home now and we will celebrate Christmas while he is here. Somehow, I don't think God will mind. It's the reason, not the actual date that is important. And we can still attend services on Christmas itself. Son and I can go here and Hubs can go wherever he is.
I am already planning meals for the whole week! I'm going to cook up another thanksgiving feast on Tuesday (Monday will be too hectic) and then we will do our christmas on Sunday and I will bake a glazed ham for that.
I'm going to alter the cookie recipes and use sugar substitute and swap whole wheat or oat flour for up to 1/2 of the white in most of them. The sugar cookies will get all white flour, though. I'm picky about the color on snowmen
So, potroast Monday (gotta love crock pots!) Turkey Tuesday, leftovers Wednesday, baked bbq ribs Thursday, Friday and Saturday we will finish up the holiday gift shopping. Those meals will kind of be up for grabs depending on the budget. If we do fast food, I will be having salad. Minus the dressing and extras.
I have a plan!
And I already told Hubs I am going to go workout in the pool every single day. He doesn't have to get up and go with, but he is welcome to come with. I'm not going to skip just because he is home.
I can't believe it. I am SO excited! Because HUBS IS COMING HOME!!
