8th day of Christmas...

Everyone has highs and lows that they have to learn from, but every morning I start off
 with a good head on my shoulders, saying to myself, "It's going to be a good day"....

Arvid and I have had a very good weekend, but even so I have been missing my family.
Christmas time is definitely not the same with Arvid as it is with being with my family.

Arvid definitely does not have any Christmas spirit in him.  Seems this year more
than usual.  Wonder sometimes what happened to him as a child to make it so, but
thin I remember it's him and that he does not need a reason.  It's just how he's made.

Me I want to listen to Christmas music.  Not him.  I want to see Christmas movies.
Not him.  I want to just get into the spirit of Christmas but sometimes it's very difficult 
when with someone who refuses to even acknowledge Christmas.  Yes, Christmas would have 
better if I were spending it with my family.  They love Christmas.  Just the same as Arvid's family.

This weekend we went to a few of our favorite places.

Every so often he says to me, "we need to live our lives and not worry about
anyone or anything else."  Guess life is too unpredictable so we may as well enjoy it.
Woke up this morning to some cold temperatures for us, but then I saw what my sister had
and I realized we still have it good.  Always warm.  The day is getting warmer by the hour as well.

Just finished Skyping with our adorable grand-daughter and her parents. Brutus is
 happy and sound asleep.  It's looking like a great day and I still have my sweet treat waiting.

Good day to all and don't forget, life is what you make of it. 
 Today and everyday plan to make it the best day ever.

I wake up every day and I think, 'I'm breathing! It's a good day...'
