I'm not that great without at least an entire cup of coffee. For real.

So Meadow comes down this morning after I've had about three sips of coffee. Our conversation went something like this:

Mom, how come this snow globe that Santa gave me last year says "Made in China" on the bottom?

Maybe there are elves in China?

{annoyed silence}

Let me see it. Huh. Well have you ever heard of out-sourcing?

{more annoyed silence, and laughter from husband}

Well that's when people need help to get all the work done, so they get others to help. Santa's got to have a lot of presents. And Wiis!! Santa doesn't make those - he gets them from Nintendo. So see, he totally gets help. So maybe he got help from China.

{still annoyed}

OMG. I don't know.

{rolls eyes and walks upstairs}

[yelling after her] Maybe you could write him a letter and ask him!

So you see how I'm not that great without coffee. *sigh*

Nutcracker '08

I have tried for the better part of the day to post Meadow in the Nutcracker. Apparently it is too long and will need editing. So here's something else I got today. I call it "life with sick toddler."

Merry Christmas!!!

Blunk drogging

Yeah. So I should post pictures and stuff. Also, I should tell you about how school went. Except they haven't posted all my grades yet. And I've taken a few pics, but not a lot. Also... I've had a lot of rum. OMG I LOVE the rum.

River has strep. Big kids are disease free so far. Still have a few things to do for the holiday. Bugger off if you're judgy. I'm busy!

More tomorrow!

Hello there

Finals will be done late Thursday. I have purchased stocking stuffers and absolutely nothing else. So Friday, I will be sweaty and in need of several drinks after having joined all the other clearly brain damaged people who are still shopping. Then Meadow has dress rehearsal for the Nutcracker and performances all weekend.

Things that are on my radar:
  • Take pictures for blog.
  • Pretend that construction isn't going on and that I actually have counters and appliances.
  • Craft an internet Christmas card so I feel less guilty about not sending out cards every year.
  • Wrap presents.
  • Beer. Or maybe rum... so many decisions...
  • Enjoy not studying.
  • Hang out with kids:)
  • Blog.
  • Celebrate 10th anniversary with hubby.

Regular blogging should resume shortly.

Merry merry!

Go comment please

I read Rude Cactus every day. Today he's going to donate 50 cents for every comment he gets in the next 24 hours to Fisher House, which I think is pretty cool. So I'm taking a study break and I hope you'll follow the link and make a comment.

Thanks!

It's the "year of water damage"

So the wood floor in the kitchen is ruined. (What possesses builders to do that anyway?) There were industrial fans and the kitchen was walled off and it will be out of commission again when we fix it... but that's all I have to say about that for now because finals start Friday and go through next Thursday, so I should be studying. Thus, you get no pictures or stories. Soonish though. Pictures AND stories.

Promise.

Things that make you go hmm

So we have these exams where we interact with standardized patients.

The paperwork I reviewed before the patient came in said that the patient was a 60 year old female. When the patient actually came in, she was in her late 20's, early 30's and she had a ring through her nose - like a bull - not on the side. Which is cool, but distracting.

I bet you didn't know that acting is a required part of my education.

I can't wait to volunteer for this kind of stuff after I graduate.

Also, when I'm 60, I'm so totally gonna get my nose pierced!


***I promise I'll start taking pictures as soon as finals are over!***
