Randomness


So... Yeah. The insane business has not subsided at all. I am still feeling like I am several steps behind. I absolutely have to send off two presents that are sitting on my kitchen table, but I haven’t been able to bring myself to bust out the wrapping paper and actually get them ready... I still have a couple people that we need to get presents for, need to pick up J’s See’s (we get each other a box of See’s chocolate for Christmas), and I haven’t gotten anything for my work friends. I thought about making something, but I am feeling like I really don’t want to do that anymore. It was either going to be cookies or black coal candy that I found a recipe for. I just know that if I messed up a batch, I would collapse into a ball under my table and refuse to come out until after the New Year. Since my brain is more than a little melted, this is just going to be some randoms to catch up...

- I have a project that I really want to do in my hallway... Currently I have a large picture of Marilyn Monroe up there that I have had for years, but now it kinda bugs me and I think I would rather have something more personal. I’ve seen tons of picture walls on Pinterest and I really want to do one... I’m thinking about hitting up Goodwill next week when I’m off for the holidays and looking for a bunch of unique frames that I can fill with all sorts of things. I don’t know if J would like it or if he wouldn’t even care...

- Flat tires seriously suck. We were about 40 miles into our trip home from Nevada when the tire pressure light came on. We pulled over, found a screw in my right rear tire, swapped out for the donut, and had to turn around to get to a dealership to get it fixed because the from road-side assistance that I had on the phone wouldn’t bring me a new tire no matter how much I begged. Luckily we got to the nearest dealership 20 minutes before the service department closed and they were able to patch the tire. I am now firmly against ever having another car that doesn’t have a full-size spare tire. If I had a full-size spare, we could have just swapped it out and kept going. It looks more and more likely that I’ll be getting a Highlander as my next car.

- My entire immediate family was in one place at the same time for the first time in over 6 years for Thanksgiving. It was nice to see everyone and we spent way too much time staying up too late talking and playing games. Good times :-)

- We had our Holiday Potluck at work Monday. I brought Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes again. So yummy. Unfortunately I have an entire dozen left over! And I did not drop them on my front walk in the rain like last year...

- I finally “decorated” for the holidays. This is about as good as it gets...


I guess that’s about it for now... This train of thought has derailed...
