Here We Go Again

Happy Monday everyone. My four day weekend has come and gone with a bright light and a small explosion. I hate it when that happens. We went to my grandmother's house in Franklin for our Thanksgiving feast and I ate too much, as usual. I love going there to see my family but it is such a long drive from the big metropolis I live in! After a grand total of 3 hours and 20 minutes on the road....we made it home. The thing is, I had to get up at 3:45 the very next morning and drive to Cool Springs for Black Friday madness.
Kristie and I had a great time and went everywhere. Let me put it this way, we arrived at 6:20 and left at 4:30. I am proud to say I am 95% finished with my shopping as of the close of business on Friday AND I scored a sweet 5 dollar DVD of Christmas Vacation at Target. (which I tortured my family through that night because they did not have the option) Th only things I have left to buy are a couple of Wii games for Michael and some type of circuit/switch maker thingie he is wanting to do experiments with. I guess I can handle that.
Yesterday was Angela's day to lounge and lounge I did. I must say I am quite good at it. I peppered in some activity during my extremely arduous lounge time such as putting 1000 lights on the Christmas tree downstairs and cutting Michael's hair. Whew, I was exhausted! Later in the afternoon we journeyed to Cheryl's house to watch the Vikings beat the Bears like red headed step children, ate spaghetti and listened to the kids fight.
Tonight is going to be a lot of fun. It's time for the annual Christmas parade in our big town. We were invited to have chili and watch the parade from Henry Fincher's house since he lives right on the parade route. He and his wife are super neat people and he is our State Representative and funny as hell! I hope the kids have a lot of fun and we don't freeze our tookus's off.
Happy Monday!

Hey. If any of you are looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me, I have one. I'd like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight. I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane with all the other rich people and I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head, and I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, fore-fleshing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit he is. Hallelujah. Holy shit. Where's the Tylenol?

Danielle said...

My favorite part too. so much so I quoted that from memory.

Ok, Yes, I'm lying. At least about the quoted from memory part.

Georgia came home wanting the same thing. Did those Cannon's get to our kids again?

Hey Mandi, If you are speaking of the circuit maker thingie....I think so. If Peach wants one they have them at Discovery Depot for 29.99!
