By break, I mean the kids are off school and all activities until next Monday and I don't have to shower until after 4pm.
It also means that candied yams, pumpkin pie, and rolls will be consumed like it's my last feast on earth.
Truly, is there not a better night for a meal all year, than on Thanksgiving?!
I think not.
And, as for that Black Friday shopping craze...not my thing.
I mean, you still need money to participate.
Oh and the crowds, no thanks.
I like shopping online.
No waiting, and getting frustrated driving all that way and having what you want out of stock!
But, you figured as much because I'm a homebody.
I do enjoy shopping, sorta.
Okay I don't.
I'm so turning into my husband.
Before you know it, I'll sprout chest hair and need to shave 4 times a week.
I can't believe December is next week.
Remember when I posted that I couldn't believe October was next week....then November.
Yeah, I've been repeating myself lately.
But holy time-flying-Batman, it's almost 2010!
But first, Christmas.
We need to unpack our tree, spritz some Drakkar-Pine on it and start the Santa threats!!
"Santa's watching you tantrum K!"
"My Boy, clean your room or Santa might skip our house."
"DQ, one more sass like that and there'll be coal in your stocking!"
You know, the usual.
I need to come up with my list.
Because, I'm the only one to surprise myself with a gift.
Usually my annual scrapbooking weekend is my treat from "the family".
72 hours alone with my photos and friends.
Unfortunately, this year I'm sacrificing it for a family baby shower.
But it's okay, I get to come up with something equally as good.
Maybe a couple's weekend to wine-taste in Napa?
That would have to be a Xmas/Bday/Mother's Day treat.
A girl can dream.
Any suggestions for me?!
Do you gift-yourself at the holidays?!
