I'd Hit That...

After moving to our new house in Utah, we received notice that there was a package waiting for us at our old UPS store. 

The Mister called and after several transfers, a little cash and a few hours later, he arranged for the package to be delivered to our new home in Utah.

When it arrived we were both curious about what it could be.  Neither one of us could recall ordering anything before the move.  To our surprise we received this...

(blink blink)

After the initial shock wore off the Mister turned to me and said, "Did you order that?"

Just as shocked as he was, I replied, "Why would I order that?"

It turns out, neither one of us ordered this and neither one of us had even been to the website.  Hmmmm... no one claimed sending it to us.  We didn't have a bill for it.  But now we've got the poster all to ourselves.

What does one do with a tacky poster?

Yeah, we thought it would make a great brother-in-law Christmas gift too.  Merry Christmas!  Let the good times roll man!  I love it!

Words With Friends, it could happen to you

I have a small addiction to Words with Friends on my iphone.  You can read more about that HERE.  Which is why, when I heard about Alec Baldwin's little unfortunate mishap, I could sympathise with him.
Earlier this month Alec was kicked off a plane because he refused to turn off his WWF game before take off.  It was quite the mini-scandal.  It gave me the giggles.

Here is his come back on SNL.  Classic stuff here people.

...still giggling.  I love it!

The Black Hole

The mister and I made a run to Costco Friday night without the kids.  As we were loading our purchases in the van I noticed something suspicious peaking out from the back seat...
This is the very last row of seats in our van. 

...and yes, that is a gallon of milk.

It wasn't open or leaking or anything bad but it got me to thinking.  The last time I had purchased milk was about a week earlier.  Which means that it must have shifted on the way home and I missed it when I unloaded.  I usually have a few little helpers bringing stuff in for me so I didn't keep track of how many gallons made it into the house that day.

One week-- ONE SOLID WEEK, this milk has been driving around in the back seat of our van.  I asked the kids about it and they claimed that they didn't notice it.

Um... you didn't notice an entire gallon of milk just floating around in the back seat?

How is that even possible?

Which proves that minivans are pits of darkness.  If you want something forgotten, just pass it to the back seat.  Your backseat is a virtual time capsule of random stuff you never want to remember.  Chicken Nugget from 2001-- I'm sure we've got one.  Last year's happy meal toy? We've got a stash.  Old DS cartage?  We've got oodles wedged between the seats.  Need a pen?  Check under the seat.

Just nasty.

If you are reading this and have not had the pleasure of driving with children in your car-- don't judge.  Just wait, it will happen to you too.  I promise.

Christmas Panic

I know I've left you hangin'.  But tomorrow is my big reveal.  I'll show you what I've been pouring over and I think you might like it.  Anywho...

In other news, Christmas is coming! 

That's got my panties in a bundle.  I'm in panic mode and no one can talk me out of it.

My Target attendance has increased dramatically.  You wouldn't think that could be possible-- but it is.  I've been everyday this week just combing the store for the perfect gifts for everyone.  My brain has been playing around balancing the presents evenly for each of my children.

Without fail, every year there is one kid that is easier to buy for than the others.  Then if you give in and buy the things you want to get the easy kid, you have to come up with something to balance out the other kids.  It's a tricky game, but I play it every year.  I fret over it, imagining the worst case scenario on Christmas morning of tears and tantrums.  When in reality, all the kids are too busy pouring over their presents to stop and count their siblings gifts.  Drama-rama, I know.

Then there is the classic I-forgot-someone-super-important-on-my-list problem.  This year that special someone just occurred to me and I'm scrambling to come up with something just right. 

At Christmas time I wish I was a millionaire.  I can think of so many things I'd like to buy for everyone in my life.  I set a goal every year to take it easy and not spend too much.  That usually goes pretty well until about the middle of December.  I go to the store and see all the glitz and the glam, little candies and big dreams.  I usually cave and buy something I shouldn't.  But it's Christmas-- right?

How are your holiday plans coming?
