Things are hectic here on the home front. I sure miss blogging and reading my blog buddies blogs (say that 10 times ;)

My hubby has been working over-nights now for 9 months, the standard rotation for Managers at Wally world is 6 months...today he was told (not asked) that he will have to continue overnights until February. I want to cry (Guess I have to put on my big girl panties and deal with it!) You see it is difficult for me to sleep when he is not here. Plus I rarely see him awake. He has a part time job as well, feeding horses and mowing 2 properties (which we should get a break from for a few months....this time of year).

I know stop whining....I am thankful that he has a job. Sometimes things seem unbalanced. The boys miss him as much as I do. But we stay busy with Scouts, Soccer, Piano and school.

On top of all this, my brother told the Twins that he would give them their own horse. Hmm I dunno about that. It sounds nice but do you know how much it costs to feed two horses? Nevermind the vet bills, fence mending and the tooth fairy to float their teeth. Hay is also in short supply around here! But how do I break it to them? "Ya'll ain't gettin' no horse and thats that!" ;)

My family has designated me "In Charge" of Thanksgiving Dinner. I think that gives me exclusive rights to delegating dont you? So, what are your plans for Thanksgiving?

I remember how much horses upkeep costs. We had three when I was groing up. The sad part is, out of the 4 children, all but one soon lost interest in them.

I'll agree with your decision on the horse. We've always had 5 to 10 around here. I assure you that if something ever happened to my wife, something would happen to the horses. I'm not a fan.
Thanksgiving is always out here on the farm. The boys and their families will be out. Our daughter and her kids live here on the same farm. We'll invite several relatives.

I am sorry about hubby... that sucks but I have seen that done so many times at Wally World. That sucks he is workin that through the Holidays...bahhhhh humbug to that. I hope he gets back to days soon. I almost forgot your hubby worked there too. I better watch what I say about my own management on my blog huh...lol jk

Yikes to the other horse... I would say that can get pricey.

Delegate, delegate, delegate!

Tell your brother that as long as he foots all the bills, the Twins are welcome to a horse or two.

No clue what is happening Thxgiving...I think I will be with a crew of fellow dancers, but life is always throwing curve balls so who knows? Have a great one and I hope you get to see hubby more.

I'd tell your brother they can have a horse as long as he buys the feed and pays the vet bill, ugh, he's gotta know that they are pricey. Poor little guys, they're gonna be crushed.

Holidays working in dept stores just suck. I feel for you guys!

I like Thanksgiving. Being English and all.

I've been hectic too and just now am reading this one.
Too bad hubby has to work that shift so long. When I was at NASA we worked all kinds of hours, about half the time I had rotating shifts, changing every two weeks.

BTW, Mema is over at Park Manor Skilled Nursing (Conroe) facility now, so I may have more time to read. I have been sneaking in posts most every day still.
