Mini Post Monday

  • It has taken me a while to get into the Christmas spirit this year, but it is slowly creeping up on me.  I guess putting clues to where a treat is hidden in the advent house daily has been getting me in the mood.  However, the thought of wrapping all the gifts I've collected almost kills the joy for me.
  • I did finish the Christmas treat boxes I planned with the Hot Chocolate Pods and Truffles.  I even added spiced nuts.  Everything turned out really yummy!
  • I really dislike cleaning showers.  If you were to do a random shower inspection, I'd fail 99 times out of 100. But I did clean my shower this morning.  I feel very accomplished.  Anyway, if you were planning to do a surprise shower inspection, today would be a good day, okay?
  • Jerry graduates next week!  Woo-Hoo!  Go Jerry!  My husband has an MBA now.
  • I am enjoying hearing Christmas music this year.  Most years, I'm tired of hearing it by now.  Isn't that sad?
  • Packing for a trip with allergies is a lot of work.  I'm putting together baggies with all the dry ingredients for our baked goods so I don't have to try to find obscure things like amaranth flour in a small town.  So much planning ahead!
  • I am so jazzed that the library called today to tell me that the two books I put on hold are available for me to pick up.  It's the little things in life that really float my boat!

Ohhh, I really liked all your pictures! YEAH for Jerry!!! What a relief. Don't worry, I don't clean my shower very often because I hate it, but I spray it with Clean Shower after it gets used. That's pretty amazing stuff. Why don't you like wrapping gifts? That's one of my favorite parts. I like making them look pretty.

I hate cleaning showers too. Tell ya what; you don't inspect mine and I won't inspect yours! ;)

Kevin wraps our gifts AND gets the tree. Which is good, since none of it would happen if it were up to me, Ms. Bah Humbug 2009 :-D

And just an FYI, my verification word was forky. I like it. ;)
