Christmas Aftermath

  1. Had a few five Christmas cookies with my morning coffee.
  2. Took a shower.
  3. Upon getting dressed, realized my bloated-and-cranky jeans were snug. Except it’s not time for me to be bloated-and-cranky.
  4. Next time I hit the kitchen, chose a grapefruit instead. Headed into the office to eat it while I checked FB and G+.
  5. Took my bowl back to the kitchen.
  6. Caved and ate another Christmas cookie.

That’s how I roll.

And if I keep it up, that’s how I’ll roll.

Down the hallway.

Awwww maaaan; leftovers again?!

So if you don’t blog for a few days, you get a post-it filled with scribble and you serve yet another piping hot bowl of Blog Stew. It ain’t much, but it’s filling.

It was an interesting weekend. Dory’s done it again. I took the last of my Wellbutrin on Friday and couldn’t find my big four month stash that came in October. We turned the house upside down all weekend looking for it. Then Hunkster called the office on Monday. Turns out I picked up the emergency ration that they gave me when they forgot to order it, and never picked up the big stash when it came in. So we picked it up yesterday and I’m back on track. How do I forget things like picking up my mind-altering pharmaceuticals?! D’oh!

Friday The Rockstar went to school medicated and came home and announced he had a very good day! Yay!!! He also said that he caught Wfgt reading my blog during small groups, so when you comment, say hi to her and thanks for being the grooviest Wfgt ever! AND also thanks again to the Intarwebb Angel, too!

Friday night we went to a CMA meeting…

Our fearless leader bravely playing
“Let’s Make a Deal” Christmas/Joy Rider style

…then out to Fifth Gear to see Strangely Familiar. Great time, but did two tequila shots and lost count of the beers, then remembered too late that it’s a bad, bad idea to try to keep up with The Kizzle. The Hunkster ended up driving us home, of course.

Saturday was spent nursing a headache in my neck and looking for my meds. My office is cleaner than it was, which is saying a lot. Over the weekend we all watched LotR 1&2 together. On the 50 inch with surround sound, just as God intended.

Elli came into heat this weekend;
Elmer better get his dancin’ humpin’ shoes on


And we have a snow day today because of this huge ice storm coming through and I hate snow days. “Mom, can I…” “Mom, will you…” “Mom, let’s…” “Mom, he won’t stop…” “Mom?” “Mom!” “Mommmm?!” mom mom mom mom mom mom mom mom mom …ad infinitum…

Things I never thought I would have to actually utter unto my children but found myself rolling my eyes and stating:

2. “Stop licking your brother’s pillow.”

I thought I’d pass on this link from Jessica which will be very interesting for anyone touched by Asperger’s Syndrome.

Only 14 days left until Christmas and 8 days until my birfday! I still have to find something for my nephew, and then my Christmas shopping is done. I still have to find something for my mom and The Seester, but I don’t have to worry about that until we have our Christmas in January. Here’s Elli opening one of her presents last year. I hid her present this year on the shelf in my closet and the little spaz already spied it. She’s asked and asked for me to get it down and give it to her, but she’s just gonna hafta wait like the boys.

Rip it open, and “ooooo” and “ahhhhh” over it even if you hate it. It’s that time of year.

27 down, 3 to go… I’m going to be crawling across the finish line

  17. Cleaned off kitchen table.
  18. Mixed a 55 gallon plastic barrel of Elmer’s glue and water with all the papers that came home from the boys’ school, and made a life size papier-mâché century old sequoia tree in tribute to the forests that were slaughtered in the making of all the papers that come home from school.

  3. punch it, dude.

Mama said there’d be days like this

I have been saying for literally years that I have got to keep track and make a real list, but never got around to it. But today I decided the time has come to start my list. I will add to this list as events warrant.

Things I never thought I would have to actually utter unto my children but found myself rolling my eyes and stating:

  1. “Stop licking your brother.”

That’s my gene pool at work, y’all. I think the pH is all hinky. Or maybe just on clearance at the outlet mall.

Rip it, roll it, and punch it, dude.
