I haven't been keeping up with the blog since there haven't been any challenges. Bad, I know, but I just completely forget.
Today's been busy day with lots of decorating and cleaning. I managed to put some of the lights up outside and light half the tree while decorating the fireplace. I thought we could have a family fun night, but Dave just got home from work at 3:45 pm after 16 hours of work and almost 24 hours being awake. This man is crazy!!! He told me to wake him up at 9:30 or quarter to ten so he could go back to work tonigh after being told he could be excused from work tonight. I don't know what drives him, but I'd be getting my zzzz's. I do thank God for a man who goes up and beyond to provide for his family. I think he's worried that come the 16th of this month there are going to be a lot of layoffs and we're trying to get ahead(yeah, right!!)
So I don't much feel like doing this whole decorate the tree, take pictures, do a holiday craft thing by myself with the kiddies. I think we'll try again on another day. I do have to take my holiday photo. Travis is here today and won't be back till next Wednesday and that's cutting it too close.
I have to share this conversation I had today with Marisa on our ride to school. We were listening to the radio and a song came on that I liked.
Marisa: Mom, is this Rod Stewart? (How does she know who Rod Stewart is?hehe)
Me: Nope, Maris, it's Billy Idol. It's a song that I like from when I was back in high school.
Marisa: Wow, that's old!
Me: I'm not old, Maris. I'm seasoned!
Marisa: What is seasoned? Is it kind of like old?
Me: Yeah, I guess you could say that. But I'm not old.
Marisa: Can I use this word in school?
Me: Yes, you can. It's not a bad word.
Marisa: Oh, okay. I'm going to tell Miss Hasse that you and Billy Idol are seasoned.
Okay, this whole conversation had me feeling old by the time it ended, but I got a giggle out of it. Marisa is a cutie with lots and lots to say.
