So, 2006 already?  Bring it on!

I'm not one for making resolutions - too many years of making them and breaking them, I guess.  We classic underachieving, procrastinator types have a problem with things like lists and schedules.  Lists and schedules tend to include items that are neither fun nor challenging so, I figure, why set myself up for failure?  Here are some items that I've tried in the distant past:



A Christmas Story

First, business:  Today is my mom’s birthday; Happy Birthday, MOM!  Love You!

Now on to the blog:

We had a nice Christmas, although it seems that the traditions I cling to don’t hold the same comfort and joy for my boys.  I love to watch the old Christmas cartoons and specials that have been around since I was a kid – Frosty, Rudolph, The Grinch, A Christmas Carol and It’s a Wonderful Life.  But, every time I suggested that we watch one of these beloved favorites of mine, the boys would whine, “No mom, that’s boring!  Can’t we just watch Transformers?”  And Christmas music?   Forget about that.  There’s no Holiday collection that can compete with the GameCube and Mario Party 6.



Would You Be Suprised to Know...

...that I haven’t done my Christmas shopping yet?   No, no, I don't mean that I haven’t “finished” it yet, I mean I haven't “started” it.

Sure, I could be all stressed but, then again, what’s the point?  At least when I was a Jehovah’s Witness I could use my “religion” as an excuse.  Maybe I still can?

No.  The cat’s out of the bag – I’m just a lazy procrastinator. 



My, What Lovely Crow's Feet You Have

There’s a cosmetics saleswoman in Chuck’s Wednesday business networking group.  Last week she got up to introduce a new product – a firming eye cream.

Well, Chuck started to smile and when she asked what was so funny, he replied that he was just trying to imagine <i>affirming eye cream</i>, you know, you crack open the lid and it starts talking “My, don’t you look pretty today!  Your eyes are lovely in that particular shade of shadow!  Have you been losing weight?  You look 10 years younger since you started using our new affirming eye cream!”

Oy Vay, that’s my husband.  You should hear him at a drive-thru.



Oh, The Weather Outside is Frightful

The temperatures this week have been blissfully cold!  In fact, yesterday most of greater Austin was closed down due to the sleet and ice that accumulated over the previous night. 

Chuck worked from home for a good part of the morning but at 9:30 he decided to take the car for a skate down Parmer Lane.  Thirty-minutes or so later he was back at the house because Parmer was a sheet of ice and he didn’t like the way some of the skaters were hogging the road, showing off their spins and bumping the other cars onto the shoulder.
