|You know him. He is the "Pre Cold" from the Zicam commercials.|
My daughter and her husband were coming over. Husband...wow! that sounds so funny to use that word about my daughter. I decided to rest in the bed for a while and then I visited with them for a few minutes.
The next day, I took it easy and just rested. We made our trip later that afternoon and I felt good! I fought off the cold! I was so thankful!
We found a hotel and the check out time was 12:00. I was loving that! I have noticed that a few hotels offer 12:00 checkout. That is my kinda hotel! I was so thankful that I could sleep as long as needed and get ready at a slower pace.
We then went uptown to eat in the small mountain town of Weaverville. Afterwards Alan let me do some Christmas shopping. We went into a shop that had handcrafted items from local artists. I was spending a lot of time in there shopping. Then Alan was ready to go get his new pup. I was thankful to feel good enough to visit the small town and thankful to go ahead and do some Christmas shopping.
So we headed to a house up on a mountain to pick out his new puppy. While she is young, she will stay in the house some and I will get attached to her. But I know that she is going to be a hunting dog and very soon she will be outside all the time. I am thankful for the excitement of a new pup in our lives.
After we got all of the paperwork for his puppy, we headed back home. It was about a three hour trip. We stopped to eat dinner and had a good meal. I was so thankful that during the ride up there and the ride back I was able to sit up front in the car with Alan. I didn't have to lie in the backseat at all!
I came up with the name Sugar for the puppy. Her Father's name is Insane Cain and her Grandmother is Insane Jane. So I thought Sugar Cain would be good for her. After all she is not insane (yet), but she is oh so sweet!
This afternoon when we bought groceries I was so tired that I let him unload all the groceries from the buggy to the car. I again felt thankful that my husband helps me so much and takes such a big role in My New IC life to make my life easier.
I am looking forward to spending time with my family for Thanksgiving. This year I am thankful for so many things that some people take for granted. This year I am thankful for Sugar...
