Here we are.

Sometimes I feel weird about Jason.

Not like, "Oh EWW. It's HIM" or anything. He's nice and cute and heck, I've known him for nine years now (as of tomorrow! Actually!) so I'm used to pretty much everything he does at this point.

It's different.

Like...take Thanksgiving for example. The four of us were sitting around the table and I thought, "Holy Hell. He's here voluntarily".

I know that sounds weird. But you know, the kids were born to me and they can't drive yet or anything so they are pretty much stuck as being part of my family.

He's not. He picked this.

He fits in so naturally. He actually fits in much better than I do as evidenced by the fact that I nearly racked him last night while we were at a super fancy party and he was trying to be a gentleman and help me remove my coat. What can I say? I'm not fancy. After that I managed to act right the entire evening, even though it was an ultra-fancy place with all these fancy people. My co-workers even commented that I acted better than anyone else. But still. In general? So not fancy.

Sometimes, I guess, I'm just amazed. That someone would choose to stumble into this craziness, look around, and decide to stay.

I'm so glad he did.

I am glad he stumbled and stayed, too. Because if it weren't for Jason, there would be no "Jason For the Love of God."

And, to be honest, "Bruce For the Love of God" or "Warren For the Love of God" just doesn't have the same "ring" to it! :)

I'm glad he stayed too! He knew he had found 3 really great people I think.

He stayed after the stumble because he found 3 amazing people and because HE'S amazing, he was smart enough to say "Huh. 3 is better than 4. I shall hang around".

i'm so glad he did too. i wonder to myself sometimes what Randy is doing here, with me and my 20-some horses, donkeys and mule, and the pack of dogs (currently 15 but as they are NOT all mine, some are leaving with daughter #2 in a couple of weeks woo hoo lol)

i guess i should be able to tolerate him leaving the lights on all the time huh?

He knows a keeper when he sees one! Or three....

That would be a nice thing to have.

I was trying to explain this very thing to somoene this weekend after the boy had my kids almost all weekend. He baked with Samara while Mathew and I were out... and he stopped by after work to get the kids just because... and kept them entertained until I got off work.

It is amazing, isn't it? I'm just in awe by it. I never thought it would happen. But it did.

And I like it.

Merry Christmas.
