I realized yesterday that I completely forgot to have my children pick out gifts for their dad, stepmom and siblings. I just forgot... no reason, other than the usual single-full-time-working-full-physical-custody-mom thing, and it's too late. The kids haven't asked, but I still feel terrible. It's something I've always done, because they cannot do it on their own.
I think, though, that THEY usually ask and this year they didn't... maybe I should let myself off the hook?
I still am not done shopping. I have to get something for my son from me and I don't know what to get him...The Girl needed and wanted a lamp and an alarm clock for her bedside table. The Boy needs neither, so I'm just not sure... I'll have to go out this evening once my parents arrive.
I mentioned yesterday that I won the Ugly Holiday Sweater contest at work this week. Earlier in the week we'd had a Holiday jewelry/sock and a Holiday Hat Day. I borrowed my girlfriend's favorite NFL football team Santa hat. She just happens to be a fan of a team that rivals mine. Maybe I pinned a big "X" on it and affixed a little pennant with my team's logo over hers (This would be akin to a Bama fan 'defacing' a LSU hat) In my defense, she knew what I was going to do when she lent it to me....
Anyhow, I had The Boy take my picture so I could taunt her on facebook. I must say, he took a great picture. Even I could see how thin I looked... it was only my top half, which is notoriously smaller than my bottom, but even I had to admit that my arms and torso look smaller than usual. If the blog wasn't anonymous and I'd given you a before picture, I'd have posted it for you to see *grins*
I wonder what my mom will have to say... probably nothing... she usually only comments when I gain weight. *sigh*
Last week many of you posted that this was a personal favorite, so here is my little blog-version of a gift for you...
When I was looking for a version of the song to play I came across the fact that Glee has a Christmas CD. How did I not know this??? I mean I don't watch the show, but I do like the music... must get!
