So, after my last panicked post things did improve. I was able to get in every Christmas thing I envisioned--cookies, decorations, lights, Santa, Nutcracker, shopping and family time. Unfortunately, no blogging or computer stuff at all. But, it was quite a nice holiday. I won't go so far as to say it was a vacation because it takes a lot of work to be that jolly. I had to work at 7 am on Christmas day--nurses are essential personal you know (or that's what I tell myself to get through it.) Anyway, my plan was to get up at 5:15 to take my shower and dress, wake the kids at 5:45 to have our Christmas morning and then leave for work by 6:30. The best laid plans, huh? The kids were jumping up on our bed by 4:45. So they had a plan of their own.
The most exciting gifts from Christmas include--Sage's Vulcan EBF-25 Nerf machine gun. We all took turns playing Rambo and peppering the evil terrorists (aka the cats) with our bendy ammo. I got a pretty purple iPod Nano. It's too bad the only time I listen to my iPod is when I'm doing something unpleasant like working out or cutting the grass. Alan received a set of satin sheets for our bed (from me.) We were very excited to try them out so we made the bed and climbed in. Alan declared it "Boner City." It did feel quite yummy. However, the sheets are also quite slidey. Everything slides off quite easily--comforter, children, mothers. It is also hard to get any traction for...well, things you need traction for.
Today was supposed to be the day I emerged from the Bat Cave and joined the real world again--wearing clothes other than sweats, coffee with friends, wearing a bra again. However, Shepard's got a case of the vomits. So, I guess I can stand one more day of lazy and blogging and catching up on my favorite blogs and reading and Wii. I love sick days.
Oh by the way, just for curiosity's sake, I googled 'boner city' and found that there is an actual song by that name. I've never heard of the band but this video is quite hilarious. Is the lead singer humping that guy? Check it out.
