Things I realized today…

– Downtown Boise makes me smile.
– Every time I see a white pontiac mini-van I think of Jacki.
– Brie is not my favorite cheese.
– Sometimes you have to make a choice that may enable your kid to be a bigger brat, simply for your peace of mind.
– Warm, spiced wine makes me sleepy.
– There are family members who plan holidays agreeably and make even the planning fun.
– Then there are some who don’t.
– Having your Christmas shopping done is an amazing feeling.
– Even when that last person’s gift ended up being a great big “settle”. *sigh*
– A new bra is a wonderful gift to self.
– So is an amazing $90 sweater 60% off.
– My Razr sucks. (oh wait… I didn’t just realize this today, but it was worth repeating!)
– I care a lot less about certain things than I did even a month ago.
– This is a good, and mature transition.
– I have an unhealthy desire to now go hooky bobbing.
– I met a friend of a friend today and liked her a lot, quite instantly. This is rare for me.
– My puppy is unworthy of trust.
– Never rely on a child to tell you when the pet food is getting low.
– My car rides so smooth with a full tank.
– Red food coloring is pretty impossible to get off of the counter top.
– my back STILL hurts from the sugar cookie monologues yesterday. Too bad I have to revisit them tomorrow evening.
– It is quite a tough decision as to whether or not put up lights along our rooftop.
– Martha Stewart does inspire me. I am tired of pretending otherwise, it’s true… I am a lemming.
– I love knowing that I have countless Christmas gifts in my trunk. It’s like a secret.
– Good things do happen to those who just believe.
– Just because there is a crack house on one corner doesn’t mean that there can’t be a reputable family on the other.
– I need a massage.
– You guys leave great and supportive comments… Thanks!

  1. Great post! I laughed out loud when I got to to the part about pet food. Its nice to know I’m not the only one making a last minute run out to get pet food so my animals don’t starve!

  2. I’m just catching up on the last several posts and wanted to say, YOU inspire me, friend!!You are a wonderfully, beautiful mommy and a kindred friend and I wish I was closer to you so I could rescue you for a couple of hours and let you sleep…..thinking of you, love ya

  3. Oh yeah, especially the pet food.. I can’t count how many times I have had to make emergency runs to get food!I wouldn’t know about finishing shopping.. I haven’t started yet!

  4. Great post! Loved it!1. What is hooky bobbing?2. You have all your Christmas shopping done? Good woman!!!!3. Razr’s do SUCK back, don’t they?

  5. Apparently (from what i gather, as I’ve never done it), hooky bobbing is when you tie a tube or sled or other such snow toy to the back of a truck or SUV and go riding through mountains/fields/forests/etc… I had friends who did it yesterday and I was envious.

  6. Totally with you on Martha. I love her, even if she is airbrushed to within an inch of her life on this month’s magazine cover…(nobody 60+ years old looks that good…)
