Another dose of blog reality.
Why? I will never make you feel bad about yourself. I am not crafty, I am not really so very talented, and I can't make crap. Seriously. So you will never read this blog and say, "Wow, I wish I were a mom like her. She's so amazing, like the perfect woman." No, instead you will say, "Damn, I'm doing pretty good."
What brings this on? Well this is about the time when I get the Christmas poop-out. Not literally, after all we haven't eaten at Gary's family's yet. Ha ha ha ha just a little joke if anyone from his family reads this. Yikes. Anyway, I always have BIG PLANS for Christmas on Dec. 1st. But by this time, I feel like most of it hasn't happened and I don't know how to squeeze it all in.
I still have baking, shopping, and lots of blah blah blah to do. And I have exactly two and a half days to do it. I need a personal assistant or something.
Also, I am very frustrated that I can't find peppermint ice cream. I LOVE peppermint ice cream at Christmas. I have been all over creation, to three different stores in one day, and no peppermint ice cream. I did complain about this at The Greatest Grocery Store in the Entire World (Publix, of course, although the Monoprix in France ain't bad either, n'est pas, kind of like a Target in France). They said in their helpful, Publix-y way, "Well maam, we have Santa Claus ice cream!" I was able to stop myself from throwing myself prostrate on the ground and yelling, "BUT I DON'T WANT SANTA CLAUS ICE CREAM! I WANT PEPPERMINT ICE CREAM!!" But I didn't, because it's a small town and all that. Probably the one time I throw a tantrum the boy-I-haven't-seen-since-we-went-to-prom-together-who-dumped-me-because-I-wouldn't-have-sex-will be there and see me for the first time in all my glory. So there goes that idea.
Well, I have to go. It's time to make a list of all the spiritual/material/physical/bubbly/sparkly Christmas things we haven't done yet.
Oh, and if you haven't gotten a Christmas card from me yet, take heart. I finally ordered them today. With any luck you'll get them before Valentine's.
p.s. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHARLENE!!! Don't freeze your Boston buns off on your birthday!!
