Cheerio, mate!


It is downright frigid here. My toes were cold all the way to school this morning, though that is largely due to the fact that it was snowy and I opted not to wear socks with my flats. The reason that I did not wear socks is mostly because I don't think it looks cute and that I couldn't locate a pair of black socks if my life depended on it since I haven't been caught up on laundry in weeks.

The laundry issue here is out of control. I am really thinking about hitting up Target after Becks gets up from his nap so that I could just wear a brand new top to work tomorrow rather than actually do a load of laundry. That is very selfish and the logic is completely irrational, I know, but it makes complete sense to me since I wouldn't have to produce clean clothes by the morning. And a Diet Coke and popcorn from the snackbar sounds pretty good right now.

Moving on...

I finally addressed all 4000 or so of my Christmas cards, which I plan to mail en route to Tarjay. Actually, there are 61 cards which equals around $26 in postage. Oy. I ended up opting to self-address rather than print from my Excel spreadsheet when I found I was having a decent handwriting day yesterday. Which is crucial if you're going to sit and pen out 61 addresses. Some people have bad hair days - I have bad handwriting days. Is that completely bizarre? Probably so, but I couldn't bear to mail out something with my family name on it with sloppy penmenship. It's a sickness.

In other news, I'm so sad that The Hills and The City are over for the season. Though I have found that Jersey Shores and Teen Mom will tide me over with enough drama until they resume sometime in 2010. Pathetic? Yes, maybe. But I need some entertainment when Beckham is sleeping from time to time and now I have Schnooks and The Situations to keep me laughing with their self-proclaiming guido-osity (ha!) and unbelievable egos. And I'll keep rooting for Maci and Ryan to make it and for Farrah to, um, get over herself. Caitlin is my favorite, if you wanted to know. Make me feel better and admit that you, too, are tuning in...

Lastly, I cannot seem to get through Eclipse in the Twilight saga. I'm a hundred or so pages through it and basically read a page or two before I fall asleep because I just want Bella and Edward to get married. For many people, this was a favorite. Have I just not reached the good part of the plot yet? What's the deal?

61 Christmas cards! I don't think I know 61 people. I thought addressing 25 was bad. Glad to know someone else has bad handwriting days too.

We must be on the same wavelength...I was thinking of buying a new outfit to avoid laundry too. Mine is done, I just can't bare to put 6 baskets away, it will take too long and I hate trying to dig in the basket to find something!

Plus I just hand addressed our x-mas cards as well.

Glad to see I'm not the only one watching these silly shows. I was way too excited to see Teen Mom's was coming back for another season..also watch Jersey Shore, Real World and whatever else comes on as I'm winding down for the day after the kiddos are in bed. I often wonder when I might outgrow these shows but at 31 it hasn't happened yet! I had to laugh this past week my husband got sucked into Teen Moms and now insists that he will have to continue to watch to see if Maci and Ryan actually get married. He's been bitten by the reality TV bug....lol.

As you know I'm a fellow MTV fan, I don't know how they do it but they suck me in every time. I LOVE Jersey Shore and Teen Mom. Jersey Shore is so ridiculous there aren't even words, I still haven't decided who my favorite is. Teen Mom is just as awesome too, I love Caitlin too. Can you believe their parents were against adoption?? Seriously?? Farrah is so immature totally needs to get over herself.

I too am SO SAD about no Tuesday night MTV for a while. However, Teen Moms does fill some of the void! I was also scolded at school by a 5th grade teacher for not wearing socks with my flats one snowy morning last week.
Thanks for the blog, love the new background! So cute!
