Ho hum. We’re supposed to blog today and that’s quite a challenge as we have plans, work and other commitments. So I’m just going to ramble a bit and then put a bow on this sucker and post it anyways.
You’re welcome in advance.
1.) I really love Christmas music. A lot. And now that Thanksgiving has officially passed I can fully indulge this habit. Yes, I am that person that listens to it all day at work. No, I don’t get tired of it. But only at Christmas time. None of that Christmas in July bullsh*t.
2.) Speaking of Christmas, I’m really excited to start watching some Classic Christmas movies. And by classic, I mean Elf, Home Alone, and The Christmas Story. Yes, please.
3.) We’re debating getting a Christmas tree this year. We’re not spending Christmas at our house, so it’s kind of like what’s the point? Then again, there’s always something magical about the smell, the lights, and the decorations. What are less magical are the costs.
Hmmm, what if we just let our blog readers decide? Yes! Let’s have a poll!
Dear Readers, Should we get a Christmas tree this year or save our pennies?
(Don’t forget, we’re operating on one income here, kids.)
Leave your vote in the comments!
4.) Lately, I’ve been missing cable TV like something fierce. Normally, I don’t. I think this means I’m stressed. I guess you could call it emotional viewing, kind of like emotional eating? I love to self diagnosis, don’t you?
5.) I’ve also been hankering (yes, it is a word!) for a smart phone. I know, we live in the dark ages blah, blah, blah. But then I tell myself that is a WANT not a NEED and that there’s really no justification for that additional expense (especially now). But it would be SO COOL! But think of those who live without cell phones Bethie. See totally a want, not a need. But what about the maps feature? So useful! And the magical “can find restaurants near you” feature? That fulfills a need for eating after all!
Think of the WASTE Beth!! The piles of perfectly good cell phones in the landfill Beth!!
Welcome to my world of liberal guilt.
*faceplants into desk.*
6.) This year for Christmas I want to bake my gifts (Surprise Family!). That will cancel out my smart phone purchase won’t it? No, I am not getting a smart phone. BE STRONG BETH!
7.) Why don’t more people use their turn signals? Use your turn signals people. It doesn’t require much effort. Just extend your finger and flick that sucker on. You are raising my blood pressure and I, in turn, raise my middle finger to you.
8.) I’m nearing the end of my list, but I really want to make it to 10. You know I have a penchant for lists, right?
9.) While staring at the keyboard for inspiration I just realized that my hands are ghastly pale. Good Lord.
10.) Well I made it to 10 and so did you. Let’s congratulate ourselves with some ice cream, since Oreos are out of the question for awhile.
Happy Monday Y’all.
