Happy St. Nick Day!
When my son was in Middle School, I was searching the internet for more grown up traditions and I came across St. Nick Day. I wasn't sure of much other then filling his shoes with candy so when he went to put on his shoes to go to school, he found a king size candy bar in them. He told me one of his classmates celebrated St. Nick Day so he knew more then I did.
I will answer some questions that I've been asked that I've been failing to answer~
*No I have not used my crock pot yet. I looked up recipes and it accord to me that a store called 'Family Fresh' that is in the town where my son attends college, has a section of meat that are marked 1/2 off. Starting December 21, he will be home for 5 weeks, I asked if he would pick up some meat to do recipes in the crock pot and he was all excited. Plus he has fish, in order to be home for 5 weeks, he had to get a timed fish feeder which only hold a week worth of food so he will have to go back weekly to restock so he will stop to see what 1/2 priced meat is on sale that day.
*Yes my son's GF was with this weekend. My sister-in-law asked if she wanted to be in any photos and she declined. Her motto is: "I go where he goes, I do what he does'. I've noticed she isn't real comfortable around my dad. My dad wants hugs from every female except me and his GF will refuse to give him any hugs. She will sit in my dad's room and read instead of talk to him or be on her phone. She does that here also. I've also notice she isn't real comfortable around me either. The good news is she graduated in May of 2019 and my son graduates in May of 2020. He has already signed a contracted with 3 others to stay in the college house he is in. They are looking for a 5th college student. I asked the GF this weekend and she is all set to graduate in May. Her step mom doesn't work weekends, her dad asked for that weekend off long ago, and her mom is calling in sick if she doesn't get the day off. I do hope all 3 show up for her. She did say she hoped her parent's didn't fight at her graduation. My son told me she said growing up at all her school events they both attended to support her, all her parent's did in fight. My son has told her she needs counseling and that their relationship will go no farther into she gets counseling. She claims her dad is against it. My son did admit to me she is very immature. He is still hoping she will get some counseling. I believe they are at a stand off. I am hoping after she graduates they both will move on to different people that maybe better matched for both of them.
* I will post another blog today with my Christmas merry-go-round.
A fun Christmas fact: Alabama became the 1st state in the US in the year 1836 that declared that Christmas would be celebrated as a legal holiday.
