My Girl is going pee and playing her DS at the same time. Cool.
I took all the Christmas festivity garb down today and felt a twinge of sadness. What am I saying? I always feel a twinge of sadness! What is the flipping difference! I need meds! Must have meds!
Not only am I sad, I am insane. Just like I put the tree up on my own, I took it down on my own. My dearly beloved watched the Vikings game and was happy that they won. I gave him a kiss and congratulated him after closing up an ornament box. The man is from Minnesota and believe me, did we have lefse and meatballs for Christmas dinner! Thankfully I did not have to make it. My poor SIL pretty much made everything while I mixed up terrible drinks and made people drink them. I also skewered up little rolls of pb&j sandwiches and cheese with those little sword toothpicks so the kids would eat them. I also chopped up some fruit and whatnot and put that out there.
The Professor looked at me gravely for a moment as he put away the vacuum (that I didn't use).
"Did you buy M&Ms?!"
I stared at him. I thought about how little time we had left until our guests would arrive. I dumbly looked at him straight in the face and I said, "Uh, I forgot."
"You FORGOT!? WHY YOU LITTLE...."
No. He actually just shook his head, turned down the hall, got his coat on, and went to the store. "We need more snacks," he said flatly in that Minnesotan voice of his.
This is what I DID do:
Learned how to make paper snowflakes
Taught children how to do it
Made paper snowflakes
Glittered them up
Suspended them from the ceiling
Created two centerpieces
Strung lights and garlands
Put out a tablecloth
made deviled eggs no one ate (and threw away today)
made mulling spice packets
did endless dishes
set up plates and silverware
and I can't remember what else
BTW----No one at the M&Ms either.
