You know those commercials for those blankets with the arms in them? I made fun of them. I thought to myself, "Why does anyone need one of those? Put on a sweater and drape a blanket over your legs and get on with it." Not very nice, I know. But I found it to be a silly thing.
Over Christmas I saw the darned things everywhere! I couldn't believe it ... who would buy one?
Then my mother gave me one for Christmas, and I must confess once more. I'm crazy about the thing. It is the most wonderful item I own. I got sick the day after Christmas and I love cozying into it. Plus, with three men in the house I can't put the heat up too high or they're all panting and complaining. (You know how men are walking furnaces!)
But my new blankie? It's just super. The last couple of days when I wake up and get ready for the day I tell myself I can go downstairs and get into my blankie with the arms.
I am so sorry I badmouthed them. If I was a famous person I would do their commercials for free! I will never again make fun of something until I try it out. I (sort of) promise....
When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? To surrender dreams--this may be madness; to seek treasure where there is only trash. Too much sanity may be madness! But maddest of all--to see life as it is and not as it should be.
I have been married for over 27 years to my husband Stan. We have two sons, AJ (26) and Kevin (24). We have two crazy dogs named Jasper and Riley. I love my life, my family and have a strong faith that directs me.
