Highlights of the Day (Tuesday 12.20.2005)

1. Woke up (too early) and sent Grace off to daycare without a hitch.

2. Had 20 minutes of "alone time" before Hannah woke up. Thanks kid.

3. Finished wrapping the last of the gifts for my Secret Santa buddies and started to tape up the boxes.

4. Realized that one of the gifts required batteries which weren't included by the manufacturer. Decided that would make for one very unhappy gift recipient, so I took the appropriate size and number of batteries out of Grace's toy, threw them in a baggie, and put them in the box to be shipped too. It was either that or wait another day to ship it, which I didn't want to do. [snort]

5. Notified the recipient, in a round about way, to explain why there were going to be "used" batteries in her box. [blush]

6. Got Hannah and myself ready and headed to the post office where I finally mailed all of my packages.

7. Went to KMart where I bought a few more gifts, leaving me with only gift cards to buy tomorrow before we'll be done with the Christmas shopping. (Or so I'm telling myself anyway.)

8. Came home where I found a box at my door. It figures it was the stuff I had ordered to go in various SSB boxes, but decided I couldn't wait for any longer. Dammit to hell.

9. Opened the box and was extremely bummed when I saw how freakin' CUTE the stuff was. Dammit! Dammit! Dammit!

10. Figured I'd give the gift(s) to my nephews instead, which also bummed me out because I didn't think they'd appreciate them.

11. Decided to send them to my SSBs after all. Beyond the cuteness, there's sort of an "inside joke" with them too, so I just have to do it. Granted, I don't know when I'll send them (LOL!), but they'll get there at some point. ;)

12. Decided that Janet really is a cheater. ;)

13. Received an email about supersizing my penis. Awesome.

14. Flipped on "Bringing Home Baby" while Hannah was napping and got all teary-eyed when a first time dad started crying tears of joy about his new daughter. Stupid feelings...

15. Decided Adam Corolla may be one of the funniest people on the planet. And if I say "Let's get crackalacking," one more time, I'm going to harm myself.

16. The lyrics to Jingle Bells according to Hannah:

"Jingle Bells! Jingle Bells! Jingle all the way!
Oh McFun it is to ride in a one horse shopping sleigh! Hey!"
17. Decided that unless I spend about 72 hours straight doing laundry, I will never ever get caught up.

18. Went commando today as Hannah watched me get dressed after my shower. She said (and I quote), "You forgot underwear, Mommy. No one wants to see your butt." Amen sister. Amen. [sigh]

19. Had to resort to packing tape to wrap some presents when I ran out of scotch tape. "Hi. I'm Allison, and I'm a redneck."

20. Decided it could've been worse and at least I didn't use duct tape.

21. Thanked god that my stunning personality allows people to look past my shortcomings. (That's a joke.)

22. Laughed because Steve is sleeping on the bedroom floor in one of the kids' sleeping bags tonight because the mattress is shot and his back has been bothering him. Me thinks it's time to ditch the mattress that's from his childhood (not a joke) and buy a new one.

Haven't read a word yet, but man you blogged early tonight!

Janet said...

LMAO on #12! I am not a cheater, I just like to figure things out:-)

I think a new mattress is definitely in order!

Is that another photo of a Penis? Where do you find these photos? LOL

Alien said...

LOL Janet. Only because I sort of blogged throughout the day today and saved it as a draft. I only added one or two more bullet points after the girls were in bed. ;)

And yes, a mattress would be good. We've only been putting it off because it's only a full size bed frame. And we'd like a king. So we didn't want to buy a brand new mattress for the full size one if we'd eventually get a king size. LOL! (Basically, we're idiots.)

And yes, that is another photo of a penis sculpture. And I find them by doing a search on "penis" using Google Images. LOL!

Janet said...

Ahhhh, maybe Mary is my SSB! LOL

Mary said...

I'm just glad I'm not the only slacker-mailer...

Janet said...

I have no idea why my post went above Mary's. She posted before I did:-)

Alien said...

HEY Mary! Did you just call me a slacker? Nice. REAL nice. LOL! (It was because of circumstances beyond my control, thank you very much...)

(And Janet, I was just TOTALLY creeped out as to why you mentioned Mary before she did.)

Denise said...

It's not Mary....

Alien said...

LMAO Denise! Damn cheaters! Every last one of you! [shaking head...]

Janet said...

hmm..... I can't stand it anymore;-)

Alien said...

Or Tracey. Tracey hasn't sent her SSB out yet either. :)

Janet said...

I did thibk about her earlier today. She was one I hadn't been able to rule out by her clues either:-)

Melissa said...

Is that picture of the grape vine in plastic supposed to look like a big penis?

Alien said...

Yes Melissa, it is. It came up when I did a search on "penis".

Alien said...

Melissa, I just went and found it again. That penis was somewhere in Berlin. LOL!

Kim: The Mom, The Myth said...

I heart Adam Carolla!!

mama_tulip said...

LMAO at Hannah advising you that no one wants to see your butt. Such a sweetheart, that girl.

I like Carrola too. I love the commercial when his wife imitates him when he first met her and goes, "Are you a single gal?" She does such a good impression of him.

Melissa said...

LOL @ your search on "penis."

mama_tulip said...

We went from a full mattress to a king and I will never, ever go back. A king is amazing and well worth the wait.

Denise said...

King, Queen, Full, Twin...Doesn't make a d@mn bit of difference cuz I still get the same 12 inches of space in bed. DH HAS to sleep right next to me, and it drives me nuts!

geenalyn said...

we went from a full size to a king about a year after we got married...i need my space. When we go down to visit my parents they have a full and i get very little sleep...

EE said...

OMG, you pple that sleep on such small mattresses are crazy! Doug and I have always had a California king and on the occasion that we sleep over at his parents in their tiny full size spare bed I hate it, I constantly feel like I'm about to fall out of bed. I LIKE MY SPACE. LMAO!

I love Adam Corolla, remember that sex talk show he used to co host w/ Dr. Drew? We *loved* that show.
