tree’s up-ish

Ohhh lazy Sundays, how I love thee. Yesterday I realized we didn’t really have anything to do today and I started a mental list of things to accomplish

1. Laundry. Laundry. Laundry. Oh, and laundry.
2. Cook 3 meals for the week
3. Get old sofa sleeper out of the house
4. Make vegan chocolate chip cookies
5. Make Christmas ornaments with kiddo
6. Get Christmas tree
7. Finish Christmas decorating
8. Finish winterizing outside of house

Pretty ambitious list, eh? I was able to start the laundry. We actually got the old sofa sleeper out (there is nothing heavier ever created than a sofa sleeper—-ever.)

When I went to preheat the oven for baking Christmas decorations I discovered problems, like a broken oven. Meh. Stove works great. Oven’s dead. Crap. The only solution will be a new oven so I’m on the hunt. Purchased one recently ? Let me know what you love. I’m an electric girl.

When baking, and meal making was taken off the agenda we decided to pick up our tree. We went to a new place and paid about $50 for the tree. Manfriend was pissed (despite picking the place) we usually pay about $35. I think it looks lovely. (only some of the ornaments up.)

I’m trying not to think about the oven situation right this second. I’ve never had to purchase one before and have no idea what to look for. Also if we’re getting a new oven I should probably look at a new fridge. I should also repaint the kitchen. Basically it opens up about 15 layers I don’t want to acknowledge and my wallet can’t afford to think about. I’ll dream about those vegan chocolate chip cookies instead and figure out whose house I’ll invade tomorrow to make them. Shameless.

Tree’s up. Tomorrow we decorate and the nutcracker’s are standing guard, so we’re good.

tis the season

Hello Friday, you look fabulous.   It’s been, shall we say, a week.   Looking forward to our company holiday party this evening.   I’m excited to break out the little black sequin dress and shoes and have a nice night with manfriend.   Work will definitely be tricky, it’s going to be one of those days where I fight the temptation to turn on my mic and go:

“MEHHHHHHHHH.”   

I guarantee every dj has had to fight that urge before.   I really love my job, it’s just one of those days.  Honestly it doesn’t matter where we work or what we do, we all fight those temptations sometimes, don’t we?

It’s been holiday card mania at home.  I had mine to do, manfriend has to do them for his clients, there’s literally 10 boxes of cards in the living room, it’s a holiday paper mess.   But thankfully I’M DONE!   I need to get to the post office stat because I have a confession…

Every year I buy Christmas cards.  I write them.   I address them.  I stamp them, then I get sidetracked and forget to mail them.   Every.  Damn.  Year.   But not this one.  They’re going out today.   I’m also looking forward to being a part of a Holiday Card Swap that Krystal clued me into/co-organizes.   Post office here I come, ADD stay quiet.

light it up
