~ It just occurred to me that my last two blog posts were titled using lyrics from Christmas songs (well, remixed), so of course I had to do the same with this one to continue the theme!
~ Tonight Elayna played the flute in the high school’s Winter Concert. She is in seventh grade and plays in her middle school band, but they were a part of the high school’s performance. I’m so proud of her, and feel fortunate to say I am very proud of all three of my kids. Along with me and Byron, my niece, my Mom, and my Mother-in-Law all attended the concert. We had a good time!
~ I watched the Duck Dynasty Christmas special and while I enjoyed it very much, I have to say I was thoroughly unimpressed with Jessica, Jep’s wife. She went hog hunting with Phil after bragging that she was country to the bone and that Phil wouldn’t be calling her a Yuppie any more after that. Well, she was a complete ditz out in the woods, playing on her phone, chit-chatting, and complaining about being bored. Then she was a total WUSS once Phil shot a hog. She didn’t even want to touch it, and was gagging and the whole nine yards. While I haven’t gone hunting with Byron, I’ve gone with him to retrieve both hogs and deer, and help him with the entire process from there (skinning, butchering, packaging) and then of course, I cook the meat. I do not gag, and I ‘most certainly don’t whine. Basically, I am a far superior Hunter’s Helper, thankyouverymuch.
Yeah, I know it’s “reality TV” and possibly scripted, but I still get to rant about it. And Jessica is definitely still a Yuppie!
~ I would have to say that yesterday (Thursday) was one of the best days I’ve had in a while, and I’m looking forward to a fun-packed weekend! Hope y’all have a good one, too.
