I need a life

Wanna see something funny? Walk into the floral section of your grocery the night before Valentines Day and watch the people meandering around with glazed over or panic stricken eyes. It's better than last minute Christmas Eve shopping.

Wanna see something even funnier? Talk to your husband on the cell phone as you're wandering the floral department discussing random stuff, and when your husband asks, "Are you sure you don't want anything?", laugh and exclaim, "Babe. You know I hate this holiday. I don't want anything." I swear two gents will have to be treated for whiplash. The shock and awe on their faces was priceless. The poor young man that was agonizing over baby pink or coral colored roses was probably wishing his girlfriend would say something similar.

Two more days till half price chocolate! That's the real holiday! Woot!

Oh. And I totes bought myself some flowers. They had eucalyptus, dangit!

The purple is back! Home Sweet Home.

I love the holiday colors and all, but there's nothing quite as comforting as seeing the good old purple skin pop back up.

Holiday Cheer thread

Okey Dokey folks, let's get with the program. Post it all. Favorite holiday traditions, decoration pics, (I wanna see everyone's trees!) favorite candies/cookies/dessert/whatever, least favorite Christmas songs, most memorable moments, etc.

Moo, you got a poll you wanna start or did I just steal your thunder?

Tradition: New jammies on Christmas Eve for the kids.

New family ornament every year. This year, our 2014 ornament is the end of our Christmas tree that the farm trimmed off. I'm going to paint it with glitter paint, put the year on it, and bedazzle it.

Favorite song: (This week. I change my mind often) I Heard the Bells.

Favorite treat: Molasses Krinkles. Oh! And there's these Gingerbread muffins that I had recently that are to die for!

Something fun I'm doing this year is what I wrap the kid's gifts, I'm labeling them wrong. All of DD's gifts have DS's name, and vice versa. They've been guessing at what their presents could be and have no idea they don't even belong to them. Contemplating on whether I tell them Christmas morning, or just let them go and watch the chaos ensue. Mwhahaha

Most memorable moment this year: Picking out an awesome tree, getting it 95% decorated, going to bed, and waking up the next morning and finding out the tree fainted during the night. Thank Jesus no ornaments were broken. QS may or may not have secured it with rope and weights. Just in case it faints again.

Ok. Your turn. Neeeeext!

Save Electricity

QS is working a project. He's got a helper with him. They're using 2 items that require cords. They've got 1 cord plugged in one outlet, another cord plugged in another outlet. So 2 outlets being used.

The homeowner walks in the house, looks at the helper and said, "Do you mind plugging both of those cords in the same outlet? That way it won't use up so much electricity."

QS said, "You know it takes a lot to shock me. I about tripped and fell over my bucket."

Then he texts me a bit later and said, "I have a favor to ask. Will you go plug all the crap in the house in one outlet so our dang power bill will go down?"

Thank you Jesus for people who makes us laugh. Bless them.

Dear Santa,

I know it's early, but I have a request.

Someone, who shall remain nameless, plugged an air fresher thing in upside down, thus pouring out all that highly concentrated oil and scent all over my hair straightener. I've tried to clean it. But every time I plug it in, "Sweater Weather" permeates that entire end of the house, and the oils seep out of the iron, oozing onto the counter top. And lets not discuss the transference into my hair.

Can I have a new straightener? It doesn't have to be fancy. This one was a cheapo from Ross.

Also, world peace, food for the hungry, homes for the homeless, families for abandoned pets, more easily available resources for those with disorders and mental illness, comfort to those who have lost loved ones, rest for the weary, and happiness to those who are heartbroken.

Thanks in advance.

*Feel free to add your Christmas wishes*

Free Books to Give

Hey gang, I have a couple books that I'm willing to mail anyone free of charge if you need them. I bought them used, but they're still in pretty good condition.

ALL GONE! Thanks y'all.
