Geez, only 32 shoppping days to go.

I would like to say that I am ready for Christmas, but that would be a big fat lie.  I have bought one present, just one.  I have thought about quite a few things I would like to buy.  Especially for myself.  All those sales, on all those ridiculous things that I want but truly do not need.   I am a technology/electronic gadget junky and my latest heart's desire in the new macbook air.  Really want one, really, rea;;y do not need one.  We have two laptops and an iMac.  Really do not need one.  If I keep saying that, maybe I will believe it.

The buy's list consisted of a variety of Nerf guns and accessories. G wants an easy bake oven, like she asked for and didn't get last year.   She would also like a pair of Ugg boots. They will be knock offs, I am not paying $90 for a pair of kid's boots.

Gabby and I did finish the Christmas cards today.  We decided to forgo the glitter on the last 15.  I ordered the pictures today, even though I didn't really like any of them.  There were a couple of the kids and th puppies that were cute, but EB insisted that we use a picture with all of us.  There wasn't a good one of all us with the puppies, so I think I will just let them chew the corner off of all of them as their signature.  They are good a chewing.  In fact they have just about finished off the legs of the coffee table. 

G and I listened to this while we were cutting and gluing.

I have this one and couple more like it, from when we were kids.  Remarkably this one is not scratched at all.  I also have a Jim Neighbors one I love.  I am so thankful EB bought me a record player earlier this year.  I use it all the time.

BTW, Best Buy upgraded us to a Silver Premier reward zone membership, which allows us to get Black Friday sales tomorrow.  The macbook air comes with a $125 Best Buy giftcard, which I could use to buy B the camera he wants for his birthday.  Of course, we could refer back to paragraph one where I stated that I really did not need that macbook air. 

I do not need a macbook air.  I do not need a macbook air.  I do not need a macbook air.  

If I can get through tomorrow without ordering one, I can probably lose the extra 15 pounds I have gained over the last two years. 

I do not need a macbook air.  I do not need a macbook air.  I do not need a macbook air.  I do not need a macbook air....................

Say it isn't so

Today, I finally broke the news to B about the Tooth Fairy.

He didn't believe me.

I had to tell him several times.

He kept saying no.

There were tears.

Then the inevitable happened......

He said, "Is the same thing true about Santa?"



We came to an agreement about telling G & Z.  If he spills the beans, no Santa presents for him.

About an hour later he whispers to me that we should really tell G & Z because.......  This isn't going to last long.

I hated to do it, but I just couldn't risk him getting beat up on the bus.
