Where Have I Been?

This cartoon pretty much tells it like it is....

Seriously, this upcoming weekend, is my weekend to start my Christmas shopping...and if the crowds that I have seen, from driving by the mall, Toy's R Us, Wal-Mart and Target, I am going to need to up my fitness game to pretty much get it done....Headed to a possible recession my ass! The parking lots are packed, the crowds..unbelievable!

Both of the little boys have made out their question is, why in the hell do legos have to be so damned expensive...seriously, I have seen sets, of which 9 year old has requested, over $100 freaking dollars! It's just a bunch of plastic can they get away with pricing that stuff so high?
I have bought one thing for Max, one thing for Aaron....seriously, that is all I have done, so I have my work cut out for me. I have to score an X Box 360, and I hope Friday when I go to buy it, I will be able to find it. If not, I am screwed! Because, um...that is what they asked Santa for...along with Guitar, pray that I will be able to find one.

Why start so late, you ask? has to do with that little pesky thing called money, you know..the green stuff....the stuff we have not had any extra off, until this Friday....

I got my tree up last Friday, a few decorations scattered through out the outside lights as of yet....I am the only one that will put them up...and baby, it has been freaking cold outside...I have just not had the motivation...sigh....
Oh, well, if lights are not put up outside, it wont' be the end of the world. Maybe Justin, 14 year old will help me hang some icicle lights this weekend.

The two youngest want to spend Saturday baking cookies....I have been perusing the intranets for some yummy Christmas cookies, something that will knock everyones socks off....beyond the typical sugar cookie and chocolate chip cookie....anyone out there have any great Christmas cookie or candy recipes you would like to share with little ol' Dixie? I would be much obliged.....just send me an email, or leave me a comment. Consider it your Christmas gift to

Happy Hump Day everyone!
