View from the End

So much to say,
I'll begin with the view.
Today on The View was the tribute show to One Life.
I teared up when the hosts gave Erika Slezak a standing ovation.
What an amazing moment in television.
Of the 43 years that OLTL ran, Erika was on the show for 41 of them.
Robin Strasser who played Dorian Lord Erika's character Vicki's long time frienemy was also on the view.
Watching the two of them as friends is wonderful.
They can not even talk about working with each other without tearing up themselves.
Also joining them on the view was Robert S Woods, Hilary B Smith, Kassie and James Depavia, Judith Light and more.
Even Robert aka Bo Buchanan lived in Lanview and our hearts since 1979.
So many have met their spouses through daytime.
Including the Depavias, Judith light, even Kelly Ripa of Live with Kelly, formerly Regis and Kelly,met her husband on All My Children.
On to the show and final episode.
What a way to end!
You seen that twist coming right?
Well I didn't. Wow I was happy with the end. It did raise a few questions of how the stories will go after the crossover to GH with those going.
It was a touching an emotional ending to a great Era in tv.
A show I will miss greatly. Come Monday I will not know what to do with myself.
I hope that you other fans were as pleased with the send off as I was.

I saw mama kissing Santa Claus!

Christmas coming soon and if you have children you know all about Santa Claus.
My own son is 11 now and has asked about if Santa is real.
Of course we have always said yes he's real!

This year I know we are pushing it.
I have even asked what he wants from Santa and he has ignored
The question.

The myth of Santa makes this holiday so magical and special.
So I wonder if my son is just letting us continue with it all because he sees
Our excitement for him.

So how should one approach this subject once the time has come?
I read an article from a blog post this morning that was the sweetest thing.
A letter to her daughter explaining it all.
It actually teared me up, and I wanted to share it with my readers.

Here is the link.

Good luck!
If you have already told your kids in a unique way post below
And give us some ideas.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This is a busy time at the Johnson house.
Zach is out of school for the rest of the week.
I am starting the food today that I will take for dinner tomorrow.
Also Starting some shopping today for Christmas.

Thanksgiving is tomorrow,the day to eat way too much,
Cheat on my diet, and look through black Friday ads over and over.

My thirty- one mom is celebrating her one year anniversary with the company
This weekend with a party.

And I'm thinking some rest would be great.
It has not even begun yet!

I am also excitedly waiting on word from Central Avenue Publishing
About a manuscript I sent them.

Speaking of publishing I am reading Cure For Pain by N.M. Facile available
Now on Amazon.
Check back soon for an interview with her and review of the book.

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
And try to squeeze in a little rest for me!
