One More Week!

Recent observations:

Best Cookie Ever?  Salted caramel chocolate chip cookie from Great Harvest!  Love it!  Especially warmed up a little so the caramel is gooey.

Yellow School Buses.  There is a reason why only kids ride in these things, because they are totally oblivious to their surroundings and the eminent danger they are in.  As we rumbled along returning from a high school field trip the kids were chatting amongst themselves, texting, playing on their iPhone, etc. I was looking around at this gigantic vehicle, no seat belts of course, making its way through downtown traffic during the holiday season and the lunch rush...........Help! I'm happy to report that no lives were lost while returning to school.

If your children are behaving like they had meth in their breakfast it may be the week before Christmas.
We have school all week and Christmas isn't until Wednesday! If I do not go officially insane before Friday, we still need to get through a weekend before the big day.  To add insult to injury, according to my kids anyway, since I work on Christmas, they get to open their stockings in the morning and then have to wait until after dinner for the rest of the presents.  Much whining and complaining on this subject, but we are standing firm.  This has always been our practice.  The kids however seem to think this is up for discussion, each and every year.  Unfortunately they are operating under false hopes yet again.  So sorry!

I am composing the shopping list for the liquor store as we speak.
