Adios Week (12/15/13)


I cannot be the only one…who has fallen very far behind in their Christmas obligations; you know the shopping, the decorating, and the planning of schedules for the impending school holiday. Although, it is not entirely my fault, here are few of the things that have been happening in our house over the past week, keeping me from getting this whole Christmas thing under control.

My Sonny Boy has returned to campaigning for his right to make his own rules, I wouldn’t be opposed to his rules per se, except they include the eating of as much candy as he chooses, the freedom to tell me “no” with impunity, and leaving a trail of toys and destruction wherever he goes. So, I am not in support of his campaign, and I've been dishing out the time-outs like their going out of style.

The Kindergarten class cleaned out my wallet this week, which kept me from being able to commit any of my dough to the buying of presents and wrapping paper.  Between cash for the teacher’s Christmas gift, the dinero tucked into the Ye Old Holiday Shoppe envelope for Sonny Boy to buy us hacky-sacks and tin bracelets, and the fresh green beans for the class to make stone soup, I was left high and dry on the cash front.

And finally, to bring this week to a close, I did in fact make a trip out in the world of Christmas lunacy in an attempt to buy every last gift necessary for my family to keep loving me, but I failed miserably (well, I picked out items but the length of the lines were way too much for me to deal with, so I abandoned ship).

That’s it for last week, and unless I hit the jackpot with my Mega Millions lotto ticket, it's back to the grind for the upcoming week. Until next time...
