two more sleeps!

You guys know me.  You really do.
Minus the coffee part, of course.

Thanks, Teresa :)


HAPPY ALMOST CHRISTMAS!!!  I just have to let it be known that this year, I nailed the teacher gifts.  Finally.  Everyone got chocolate and hand sanitizer.  YOU get hand sanitizer!  You get hand sanitizer!  YOU get hand sanitizer!

So THIS doesn't happen:

So you know how everyone was all deathly ill?  I got a truancy letter from WonderGirl's school.  It's required once a student misses a number of days, but good golly, really?  I know it wasn't their fault, but it was signed by her principal who I'm pretty sure does not like me.  Which is odd because EVERYONE likes me.  So I kind of want to send her in next time she's puking, with the truancy letter pinned to her chest.

Also, just because I'm curious - if money and common sense were not object, what would you love to get for Christmas?  I ask that just because I was wondering it about myself.  So while you think of your answer, let me think of mine...

Maybe a vacation?  Like a crazy, over-the-top and anywhere one.  The last real vacation I think I was on was my honeymoon.  Like, go somewhere and do fun things just for the sake of doing fun things without any extraneous obligations.  Go to a tourism website and do everything they say you should do when you go to whatever place they say.  Emu riding?  Yes, please!  In reality, I actually don't want to go anywhere because I have childrens and taking them or getting someone to watch them is just too much.  But I said common sense was not a part of the equation, right?

Also...  okay, this is sad.  I just want a clean house.  That's it.  That would be the best thing ever.  Of course to make that happen, that would also mean the kids (and probably I) would have to move out, but again, common sense be darned.

My husband does truancy. It's really nbd. And I'd like a Disney Cruise or a minivan. #mom

I was thinking of this just today and yeah, so sad, but the clean house is top of my magical list. :) Merry Christmas!

This is totally sappy - but I think we've determined that's where I live now - but I already have what I wanted for Christmas. It's going to take me a bit to come up with another present as awesome as Cheeta.
(I thought the truancy thing was only if they didn't know why the child was missing.)

I have asked for house cleaning for every mother's day for years and I never get it. My husband's love language is spending, which is odd for a very frugal person. My love language us solitude and cleanliness.

HEAR YE. I need to document the fact that I ran 3 miles and didn't feel like death.  So just to make sure it wasn't a fluke, I did...
