So, what have I been up to now that I got all my New Years resolutions, goals, call-it-what-ya-wills, out there? Cleaning up all of my Christmas decorations of course! Now that I am Christmas and resolution post free I can share a few stories that have been on my mind that I haven't quite gotten around to posting on this here blog.
rainbow right up ahead. I'm pretty ADD so my mind wanders easily, so bear with me. I get to thinking about how awesome it would be to find the end of the rainbow. The magical stories of leprechauns and gold are definitely enticing. About 1/4 mile later I'm distracted by something else and forget all rainbow thoughts.. Until I found the end of the rainbow! Right smack dab in the middle of the highway! I start squealing and clapping with glee, looking like a lunatic and you know what I found? A big, fat, heap of disappointment. No leprechaun, no gold, nothing.
Yes, that is a picture of me in my son's monkey beach towel, and yes, I am wearing my rubber boots inside. I had just hopped out of the shower when John asked if I could open the door for him so he can get our quickly-dying-and-shedding-pine-needles-all-over-the-house Christmas tree outside. Wanting the darn thing gone I happily obliged. John unscrews the tree from the base, hoists the tree up, and the base (full of water, mind you) comes right up with the tree! Water everywhere! You know what really sucks? Wet feet with pine needles stuck to them.
Last story, I promise. Apparently John is an excellent listener, especially when I am being irrational or when I've lost my marbles. I made the mistake of telling him that one of my main New Year's Resolutions was to be healthy (read: eat healthy and quit eating chips). Any who, we went grocery shopping today - and of course I forgot to eat before going so I was starving. We are in the check out line, and I notice a bag of Funions sweet talking me, feeding me lines that make me have to buy them. So, of course, I toss them in the cart with a smile. Then I notice a Butterfinger screaming my name, I couldn't leave it behind so I snagged it to. Do you know what John did? As I bent down to grab my Butterfinger, he stealthily put my chips away! Guess who didn't notice - this girl. He told me in the car, laughing his butt off. I'm still not laughing.
