Happy Holidays

I'm going to the mall today. During the height of Christmas shopping frenzy. I hate shopping. My kids don't.

For some reason I don't remember now, I promised my delightful children - as part of their Christmas gift this year - to let them go shopping for their own clothes when school was out for the holiday. That promise has come home to roost today. Tomorrow always comes, doesn't it?

Also, our very annoying mini-dachshund, Sophie, chewed up Natthan's brand new $200 boots this morning and then pooped on my kitchen rug. Which got me out of bed at 7:30 on a morning when I should have been able to sleep until 10.

I'm going to get a cup of coffee.

That's what thoughts'll getcha

This is the super-longest I've ever gone without posting. I thought about just giving it up altogether, but then I realized it's the only journal I have and I'm glad to have a record of my life. So, I'm back.

Actually, I thought I'd outsmart my husband and see how long it would take him to figure out I posted something new. I wasn't going to break down and tell him this time, I was just going to wait and see. Well, once again the man is twelve steps ahead of me. HE posted something new back on our anniversary in November, and again in the early part of December, and I'm just now finding it!!!

I've been substitute teaching, and trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, and Christmas shopping, and slogging through life.

So sue me.
