A few quick thoughts...

  • I hate undecorating from Christmas almost as much as I hate decorating for Christmas. But I have discovered that Kahlua helps...
  • Z is a lot like his mother when he plays games. The trash talk is unbelievable and he is determined to win.
  • A is a lot like his mother when he eats. If it looks edible he eats it (I can't assume that the fake gingerbread ornament on the tree tasted all that good - but it looks like A only tasted his foot but by tasted I mean too a bite out if it...).
  • Those little mittens that they have for kids that allow the top half of the mitten to pull down and it exposes a half glove (while the kid's hand is still covered)...yeah, they pretty much suck.
  • Dick Clark makes me cry every year. I can't watch him anymore since his stroke without breaking down.
  • Any person that would stand in NYC amongst millions of people in subzero temperatures should be checked for a severe mental illness.
  • I sent out my Christmas cards late this year. The majority of my family probably didn't even get them until after Christmas AND I don't feel badly about it.
  • I should probably never blog again after having a drink...

Happy New Year!! I hope you all have a healthy, happy, prosperous year full of family, friends and good food...and Kahlua :)

Aaah... Kahlua... A way to make anything more bearable. Taking down the tree is a wretched job, although tasting the ornaments might make it more interesting. And I did do New Years Eve in Times Square once. Seven hours of standing in the frigid cold. Nasty. So your comment about sanity is well-taken.

I can do anything--even clean--with loud music and diet coke. Dick Clark, I'm just wondering what the people who put him on are thinking? Yes, I know it's not polite to stare at handicapped people, but we still do. It was so uncomfortable to watch him.

I miss my Kahlua! Damn my husband and his drinking problem!

Happy New year!

Ha! You crack me up! Have a beautiful 2009--and don't waste any time feeling guilty about Christmas cards (I think they should be outlawed.)
