Uggghhh I really really hate doing this, but it seems that with the holidays my posts are going to be all over the place, I may post a few days straight and then I may miss one or two.
I'm trying to be consistent, but consistency went out of the window a few weeks ago, I think it started at Thanksgiving and now it's pretty much non-existent, though I've been reassured that it should return sometime after New Year's Eve. I can't wait, can you???
Thank you all for being so sweet and continuining to comment on my blog even though I haven't had the chance to come by and see you....I do plan on visiting you all this morning, I set some time aside JUST for that.
So it's 14 degrees today, and I'm not going to complain, seems that some of you are in the negative temperatures and now you just make me feel bad for whining LOL
Oh and to my newest friend Mcewen, I won't slap you for being in California and having nice warm temperatures LOL
Anyway, yesterday the kids decided to make their Christmas Wish List....that's all fine and dandy but then I realized they both want the same thing, a Fur Real Pony........ummmm unless I rob a bank (which ain't happening), or my money tree starts working overtime (ain't happening either), there is NO WAY that I'm going to shell out $260 for each pony. That's enough to feed a small village. Ridiculous!!!!
So Jasmine asked me this morning if she can get the pony for christmas and I said "well you know it's really expensive Jasmine, it's like almost $300".....yes I like threatening my kids with dollar amounts because in their head $2 is like a bazillion and they're rich (they chant as they run around in circles)......so she calmy looks at me and says "You KNOW mommy, Santa MAKES toys, he doens't have to buy it".
What the heck do I say to that??? I think I mumbled something about him being too busy and not having enough time, I don't know, I lost myself in the "makes toys you know"....*sigh*
THAT right there is the core of the holiday stress. Not wanting to disappoint your children but trying to find your way around the ludicrous cost of toys these days.
Well ladies I'm keeping this post short, I have tons of errands to run and I want to quickly drop by your blogs and say hi....right now I have over 300 new posts in my bloglines, I can't possible wade through all of that in 10 minutes. Did I not tell you to STOP posting? LOL (just kidding, post away post away).
