Funny Bone

I can't remember the last time I cried because I hurt myself, but today it happened. (I wonder if I'm catching being a baby from hanging out with a baby?) I smacked my elbow SO HARD on the hall closet door this morning, I started crying. I couldn't believe it. The Husband was laughing, and I just wanted to smack him. It was NOT funny. But then I started laughing uncontrollably. It still hurts and I'm pretty sure there's probably permanent nerve damage.

My Top 6

Things I don't like when The Husband is out of town, in no particular order:
  1. The Killer coming to get me.
  2. Shoveling the snow.
  3. Taking The Boy TO and FROM school.
  4. Sleeping alone.
  5. Him NOT calling after it was HIS IDEA to call to check in while he's away. I've always said to call when you arrive, and to call when you leave. HE SAID he'd call to check in because he knows I worry, and its just smart to check in.
  6. Watching the news because I think they'll say he's dead at the bottom of the lake. Because he didn't call.

He finally just called. He's fine. He forgot. Oh yeah, I forgot not to give him an ear full. Good news: Got his limit! FISH FRY AT MY HOUSE!

I Heart Gravy

I cleaned out the fridge yesterday of all the left over Thanksgiving food. Well, after I finished off my sworn enemy - stuffing. I tossed the turkey, the cranberries, the potatoes, the bread, the sweet potatoes, the beans, but I'm clinging to the gravy. I took it out of the fridge, put it on the counter, and there is stayed. I just can't bring myself to get rid of it. Its the most yummy, luscious, flavorful gravy in the universe. What if I need it? What if I suddenly need gravy on my spaghetti tonight? Or on my egg in the morning? Or on my salad at lunch? It could happen. I think I'll just pour it in a glass and drink it.

I'm Bubblin'

So where are we at? Do you guys like all the Christmas stuff making its appearance so early, even before Halloween? Or are you like me and loving it and reveling in it? I have a "Holiday Spice" candle burning away today, smelling up the house all I'm baking or something. KOOL 108 is playing non-stop Christmas music. Yesterday I conquered 75% of my shopping list. I'm all a bubble with the spirit of the season.

There's Just No Time For It

Why is it when I really don't have time to have a lot of meetings, (ie: this week because we're heading out on vacation on Thursday), I'm completely booked all week. The last few weeks, let's just say, I've been "not booked". But turns out, I (by that I mean one of the designers I work for) landed a big job and looks like I'm booked through the end of the year. I'm mean, Heaven forbid I don't get that pedicure before we head off to warmer weather. Priorities people!

Let It Go

You know you have control issues, or you're really anal when coloring with your two year old, and it makes you crazy when he colors pictures out of order in the book. Or when he starts his scribbling on the picture of the sea horse that you just finished coloring oh so perfectly. I just take a deep breath, and say let it go, let it go, and try not to raise a freak like yourself.

For The Good Of All

Is it bad that I spent a good part of the morning training my two year old how to wear headphones? I ran around pretending to be all jazzed out about the new portable DVD player I bought for him for our airplane trip next week. I made it sound all cool and special and awesome as possible. He finally dug it, and watched a whole movie. I was feeling guilty about it, so we did a mini art project afterwards. There's something weird about it, but I do it for you my fellow airline passengers. I'll pop that horsie racing movie in, and we won't hear from him again until we land. Bliss.
