it started out a little rough.
i thought "it's so cold, i'll make the kids some breakfast...they will like that"
(you know...like those good moms)
i made them scrambled eggs.
NO ONE wanted them.
i drove my kids to school and went to get gas on the way home.
i was so happy because i had $1.00 off my gas per gallon from our fuel points!
(we bought gift cards to buy the gifts we are already going to buy anyway and that way you get 4X fuel points until the 11th... it is so RAD!)
after i finished filling up....
my car wouldn't start.
i was in my pajamas!!
and my cell phone was at home on my bedside table.
i waited and hoped it would fix itself.
so i had to go and ask for help in the store.... in my pajamas.
two different guys tried and they finally got it going.
thankful for that.
i went straight home & cuddled on my couch with a cup of hot coffee & tried not to move for the rest of the day.
here are my feet.... parked in front of a space heater.... all day.
i wore my hat all day... and that blanket.
i kept my hands warm too.
i sat here until i had to pick up the kids.
and i FINISHED all my photo editing!!
when my computer broke awhile back all of that work had to go on hold so i was still not done.
but now i AM!
i made my christmas card online.
i finished up my online shopping.
oh internets....how do i love thee.
i have one more thing and I AM DONE with all my shopping!
that makes me happy happy happy.
but we have no decorations out other than the tree.
so that will be started on today.
AND my washing machine is still broken.
i know right?!
it was the week before thanksgiving!!!
can you say S L O W ? ? ?
not too happy with our service center.... not at all.
they obviously don't have five children & don't understand the enormity of three weeks with no washing machine.
it's safe to say my kids' hygiene could be a bit gross at this point.
i did hop up to put dinner in the crock pot and make some cookies.
it seemed like a cookie kind of day.
i LOVE when my kids come home and they are overjoyed by homemade cookies on the counter.
that's a good feeling.
much better feeling than having your scrambled eggs rejected.
some happy mail arrived from heather bailey....lovely fabric but what i love even more is this cup!
MOM's ONLY. no one else may use my cup. ever. MOM's. don't even try it.
i found some cute stuff while surfing....
border line ugly/really awesome mirror that would probably rock in my house at pier one.
you can believe me when i say.... i got on the NOTIFY ME email when i saw this watch.
i fed my kids a quick dinner at 5 and then they all loaded into the car with Craig
and left for the WHOLE night to go to a KU basketball game!
he had a few tickets and wrestled all day with who to pick to go with him.
and then finally decided to find two more and take them all.
i love that.
i love that he didn't want any one of them to be sad so he found a way to take them all.
this was the picture he sent me.
he said annie fell asleep after half time. HA!
annie's teacher is starting a KNITTING CLUB during indoor recess.
i teared up when i read the note.
that is the cutest, sweetest, most adorable idea ever.
how awesome is she?!!
would you volunteer to teach first graders to knit?
she is amazing.
and annie was SO excited about it.
so it was worth the cold trip at 11:15 to an empty walmart to get knitting supplies for today.
ok.... it's TIME TO DECORATE THIS HOUSE for christmas.
crank up the Vince Guaraldi Trio. (hee hee hee)
oh yeah.... i know how to rock.
i hope you get some chrstimas cheer going on at your house too.
