Only 12 More Days...

Til My Name is Earl and The Office are back on t.v. Yippee!

We finished up the last of the Christmas shopping today and I just wrapped everything. All the gifts are patiently waiting to be ripped open 12 hours from now. I don't have a clue as to what Sweety got me. I think it's an espresso machine. I hope so.

I told him I'd like a nice scale and he said he'd drink a tall glass of cyanide before he bought me a scale as a present. I say I'd like one but subconsciously, probably not.

One of my new favorite foods is portabello mushrooms cooked on the grill. Freaking yummy. I could almost go vegetarian.

Tomorrow I have to go in to work for 2 measly hours, from 10 to noon. So we'll get up early and do the present opening and Sweety will have dinner ready when I get home.

BB(11) got an obnoxious alarm clock for Christmas at his mom's and he brought it over here. It will be going back to her house tomorrow. And I'll do her a favor and not give them a bow and arrow set to play with at her house.

Time to make cookies for Santa!

Everyone have a Merry Christmas!

What if you give them the bow and arrow and say they're "love" arrows and only you shoot the people you really love - like your mom. Or they're MOM arrows. All arrows must hit mom. Hmmm....

I'd make sure BB left it at his mom's house. But using an alarm clocks is a useful skill. My kids are 15 and 13 and still don't know how to use an alarm clock. I wake up early every morning just to get them going. Merry Christmas. Save a Christmas cookie for me.

Bekah - I like the way you think. I am sending a Butterfinger pie over there with them tomorrow.

MCB - I don't mind waking them up. BB likes to get up before the sun rises so he can watch t.v. The sound the t.v. makes when it's being turned on wakes me up so I prefer him to sleep in.

Oh damn. I read this too late. All the cookies are gone. I'll save you one next year!

Merry Christmas Chickie! That's a bummer you have to work. Zube Boy has to work, too. At least you get out of making dinner!

Merry Christmas to you and Sweetie and the kids, including Sweetie's!

Anne Arkham - Oooh...Rubber band guns. I'd forgotten about those. Nice idea.

OOLOTH - My new coffe machine kicks ass!

Zube Girl - Since I'm a kinda sucky cook, me working today suited the whole family.

TXSM - Thanks!
