Shame about the battery but I'm glad you got it going. Good about your jacket too.

Have a safe journey and fun holiday with your family Jen

Heiner and his dad are going to make something similar to this with the left over piece of the worktop from the floating cupboard. That piece of wood is nearly as big as the stove-top...a metal runner (that we already have), some wood for the feet, and a baking pan (Luckily I have 2) from my stash of kitchen things.

Awesome...the kids are setting me up to fail by writing Christmas letters with totally different stuff on it than they asked for.

When I say they cant do that they are telling me Christmas is magic and it can happen. When I say no it cant, that they told me what they want they say it's for downstairs.

Brilliant Jen!

I am recovering from Rosie bday. I have not wrapped one Xmas gift. Not one. Guess what I am doing tonight?

I just purged 1/3 of all the girls pants. They have all grown a size from September. I didn't do shirts but I am likely going to place a TCP order today for another set of solid LS shirts in a size up from what I just ordered a week ago, because if they grow another size before May, which is very likely, they won't have any that fit. For $3.50 a shirt I can afford to buy 10 a size ahead. Ian is okay on his stuff for now, and it's a lot easier to supplement his stuff from thrift stores than the girls.

We went out for a nice lunch with my parenys. Mom and I have removed a sliver the size of a plank from MH's hand. Jerry and my Dad are puzzling out what the car issue is.

MH and I are getting ready for a nap.

seriously. men are so dumb.

i just went in the basement, where six lights have been out for two weeks. dh said the pots went bad. so i go down with a box of floods, no dice. go down with second box of floods, no dice. then take a currently working bulb and try all six pots, works fine. so then i go get box of dairy-aisle quality cfl bulbs, and all lights working now. so as long as there are no pix of me down there we are set.

and what is dh doing? he is out buying a gift for the kids from sil because apparently he did not believe me whan i said i was done buying gifts on his family's behalf three weeks ago until today. probably only because she called today to find out what he was getting with the money she sent.

There is one bulb out in my room...it's been like that for years...Fynn tells me about it every nap time, every morning, and every night.

Well as I was done with my Christmas knitting I thought I'd get going on my Portuguese nephew's socks....only to have them turn out MASSIVE. Ok, well that was a wasted day knitting. It looked good but wouldn't fit him for about 3 years!

I think next year I'll tell the kids Santa made a new rule...that Christmas lists have to be written by Halloween, so that kids have time to forget what they asked for and they have a lovely surprise on the day.
