Gramma instincts are kicking in

I'm sitting here almost in tears, I think the Grandma in me is starting to pop out. I went to the Betty Crocker website to browse around and on the home page there is this lady and her daughter or granddaughter and they are making a gingerbread house. My Grandma brain kicked in and now I want to make gingerbread houses, gingerbread men, Christmas cookies and do all the Chrismtasssy stuff with my grandsons that I did with my kids. I want to go upstairs into the depths of that HUGE assorted holiday box and take out Christmas stuff that I had when my kids were little and take it home with me to use with the grandsons. The sad part is I won't get to spend a whole lot of time with them since my oldest will turn 8 2 days after we get home so he will be in school and both his mom and dad work and can't just jump in the car and bring him down. He had only just turned 1 the last time we were home for Christmas and we only had 1 grandchild at the time so this year means a whole lot more. Ey yi yi, this is getting to me now.

2 weeks, 2 weeks! 2 weeks from RIGHT NOW we will be in Europe waiting to make the flight connection to the USA!

2 WEEKS TODAY! I quit smoking 2 weeks ago. The last time I had a puff was ummmmm, the 18th or 19th??? I can't even remember now. Those 2 weeks actually feel more like 2 months, but I did it. I wonder if I can actually say I quit smoking yet?
