Are the holidays done yet??? I'm already worn out!
I tried to go to Super Walmart tonight to go get Thanksgiving fixings and there were NO parking spots anywhere... I couldn't drive away fast enough. Tomorrow I will attempt Albertsons because what I will lose in lost savings will more than be made up with more sanity.
2 weeks ago I bought my turkey! Miriam (our nanny) is teasing me that it is a chicken w/an identity crisis. We think it is about a 7 lb bird but the problem is that it didn't have a label so when it defrosts I will have to weigh it. All I know is that it only cost us $8 and it is name brand. I'm excited and nervous about cooking my first Thanksgiving... Chris has set expectations well though: "Don't worry, we are all not expecting it to be very good". With a vote of confidence like that how can I lose?
I'm already stressed about gifts so I'm trying to get it done early. I'm really getting picky what I buy the critters b/c we have so much STUFF around this house. I feel like I live in a day care center and so I want what we get them to be QUALITY. I can't wait till I'm done!!! It is the best feeling :) I got great coupons for a Target 3 day sale but they were sold out of what I wanted to get Cally and Rachel. It doesn't help that we are signed up for every gift exchange imaginable. Chris promises this year he will help... I hope he will! Now the question is... will I dare Black Friday??? I'm leaning towards... I need sleep, but knowing me I will cave.
Lets just be honest! What we are all really looking forward too is the following...
Santa Cally! And of course
Elf! I've already watched it twice since Saturday... I love this movie (Chris by the end of December is ready to send hate mail to Will Ferrell).
Oh and in other good news Chris and I bought our plane tickets for a weekend getaway to New Orleans for mid-December (Gualita will be on critter duty). It will be what I need to stay in the Christmas spirit!
Finally lets not forget, this year on December 22 I will not be having a total hip replacement and spend Christmas drugged! Wohoo!
