It's the morning of December 22nd as I write this. I'm letting you know upfront that this will be a "quick and dirty" post. Keep your expectations low and we'll get along swimmingly.
Regarding the photo above, it's a snowman my son made at school. It puts me into full-blown cuteness overload. It may be the crooked little head or the googly eyes (I'm sucker for googly eyes) that makes it so cute. I didn't want to be selfish and hoard the adorableness for myself, so I thought I'd include it here.
This is the time of year that everyone likes to complain that there's too much to do and not enough time in which to do it. Why do we complain? Because it's absolutely effin' true. It's three days before Christmas. Do I have all the gifts wrapped. Nope. All the cards sent? Nope. Have I bought a Christmas turkey yet? Nope. Have I made any Christmas cookies? NOPE again. After I finish this post, my son and I are going to brave the traffic so we can try to complete some of these errands. This morning I asked him, "Maybe instead of making Christmas cookies for Santa we could just leave him some broccoli or carrots? (Yes, totally lame, I know) He'd probably appreciate a different snack after all those cookies". My son's silence and look of incredulousness answered that question.
I know people will offer helpful advice like, "Don't do so much! Try to make it easier on yourself!". Believe me, I do that as much as possible:
I'm actually off from work for two weeks so I should eventually be able to get caught up on everything that needs to get done. I sent this text Friday night:
So while I don't have the added pressure of going to my job during this busy time, instead I'm home with my son for two weeks which believe me, IS JUST AS CHALLENGING! This text was from Friday night:
This text was from Saturday morning:
A friend mentioned that I should save up all my son's questions and write a post with the included answers from Google. The idea definitely has merit. However, the resulting post might sound like it was written by a person under the influence of acid or some other illegal drug. We'll see...
If I don't have time to write another post before Christmas, I wanted wish you all Happy Holidays (no matter which holiday you celebrate this time of year). I also wanted to thank everyone who makes the effort to come here and read my nonsense on a regular basis. I see the statistics so I know you're out there, even if the majority of you are silent. Also, if you ever feel like saying "hi", please feel free to do so. I know the comment section makes you type in an email and name, but they can totally be fake and made-up if you feel like being anonymous. Best wishes you lovely people!
I'm the worst kind of asshole-- I think I'm funny.
