The dreaded holidays are among us!

Well, the lobby of my building is decked out for Christmas.  All the stores have had Christmas in them since just before Halloween, yes that is what I said-Halloween.  Temple Square is being prepared for the big lighting after Thanksgiving. All I can think about is being alone, with no boyfriend or husband for the holiday season.  Not my idea of fun!  But what do you do, well you push through that is what you do.  I will miss my children while they are gone.  I will miss my daughter on her 18th birthday.  But, all will be celebrated in January, so oh well.  At least I will get to do something with the kids.  I have friends and family who will be around, that will help a lot!  But, alas, I still dread the rest of the year!  At least I have the kids until Christmas break! 

The List: 7 Ways to Tell if He's Going to Marry You-in 30 Days or Less

I went to a friends wedding last month, danced, made a new friend and caught the bouquet!  Yes, ME, I caught the bouquet.  I have never caught the bouquet before in my life.  I did not even try to catch it, there were plenty of other ladies in front of me, Vanessa just threw it and it landed in my hand.  Coincidence, maybe, I do not know.  Anyway, Vanessa said she needed her bouquet so she had a book for the person who caught the bouquet.  " It's called, The List, and it really works!", she said.  Well about four days later I received the book in the mail.  (Vanessa and Craig live in Arizona) I thought what can it hurt to try it and see.  Well, I finished it on Sunday night.  I have a man or two who want to go out.  Thus, my list items are written down, IN INK, and I am ready and willing to take a chance on love.  This was a very interesting book, and I am willing to give it a try.  I will let you know if it works.  And so the countdown begins.
