You have time to get ready!


To make sure that I was warm enough for the Army/Navy game, I wore (not counting undies!):

  • 1 pair of tights
  • 1 pair of silky, long underware pants
  • 1 pair of soft, workout pants
  • 1 pair of bib snowpants
  • 2 pairs of socks (1 pair of kneehighs, 1 pair made of wool)
  • 1 pair of fleece-lined winter boots
  • 3 long-sleeved, long underware tops (2 silky, 1 fuzzy)
  • 1 wool coat
  • 1 nylon Land’s End coat
  • 2 stocking hats (1 “heat retaining” hat, 1 homemade)
  • 2 pairs of gloves (1 “ultra cold” pair with mitten palms, 1 pair light gloves)
  • 1 6-foot, super wide scarf
  • 2 chemical hand warmers. 

It was about 34 degrees for the 7 1/2 hours we were outside including pre-game, game, post-game fun and walking to and from the parking lot.

And, I was COMFORTABLE!! I was a little concerned, however, that if someone accidentally bumped me and I fell over, that I would not be able to get up without lots of help. 

When we prepare for something, it makes a difference. Is it time to prepare yourself for this Christmas?

  • The person you just don’t get along with easily. 
  • That food that you love too much. 
  • The gift that you did not expect to receive. 
  • The hug that is too long, or the kiss you didn’t know was coming, or discovering that you are the only one who is hugging everyone.
  • The uncomfortable “work” party. 

You have time. Get ready now! Put on that extra pair of gloves and brace yourself! You’ve got this!!

Love,

Jill (just one of God’s kids)
