I'm at home sick, I've expectorated my lungs and various body parts. I've not slept more than 6 collective hours in three days. My abs (which were previously non-existant)feel like shredded wheat.I just wrote this post about how awful this year has been, the most emotionally and physically draining, weather beaten, politically ridiculous/scary, expensive, sucky year...
and I lost the post.
So, I'm not going there. Suffice it to say, I am so ready to do the pretty princess wave with a "buh-bye" to this year (after kicking it square in the fanny). I am so ready to celebrate royally this new year of promise and unchartered territory. If my poor little liver was not already near collapse from the meds I've taken the past few days from the Illness of 2005, I'd be having a party like you wouldn't believe...like Laverne and Shirley
So start the bus and hurrah for the New Year I say, and 2005, you'd best be going.
No, Aunt Bethany, those are the Christmas lights
I guess it officially started in our house today, the tree is up and lit, awaiting decorations. Most of the presents are bought (and paid for!) and the house is a disaster. Yep, it's Christmas!
My husband is working both Eve and Day, as is my brother-in-law. We have a traditional holiday breakfast open house kind of thing, that will still be on. This year my little sister is starting her own tradition with a lovely holiday brunch, as prepared by her husband, a chef and overall kitchen whiz. Would it be horrible to skip out on my own breakfast and head over there? I especially want to Christmas with my cute little niece, what to do...? My son invited half of the known universe over, and my family and friends have had a standing invitation for years. Anyone could show up.
In out finest tradition, a major appliance has broken. My washing machine is on life support and we are hoofing it to the laundromat. Fa la la la la...!
On the bright side, I received a box of Godiva chocolates as a gift and I am going to see King Kong tonight.
I don't get it either
"People who don't understand that George W. Bush could have legally wiretapped anyone he wanted (FISA allows 72 hours after the wiretap has started to obtain a warrant), so the question of why he didn't legally monitor some people is an important one."
There are times where I feel that we reside in some bizarre movie set and that all of what is occuring, with the power that The President has been given in the name of Homeland Secuity, that it MUST be unreal. It just seems so unamerican.
What kind of Mama are you?
You're a punk rock mommy! DIY is probably your
motto, because you're a punk mama at heart.
Your kids are getting your independent spirit
and guts, and learning to solve problems
themselves. You love it when they show their
independence, even when it's breaking your
heart. What kind of a freaky mother are you? brought to you by Quizilla
Things I don't get
An espresso machine
that takes up about a square foot of counter space but only brews one cup of espresso at a time.Chocolate fountains
. I like chocolate, but looking at these things makes me feel sick inside. And again, it's a giant piece of equipment that you will use...when? Ceiling trees.
People who sit outside in the freezing cold all night long to buy a video game console.
