I'm very close to losing it.
Am I the only one who can't seem to upload pics onto Blogger successfully these days? I know they're pushing us to go to the new interface, but it's not entirely compatible with this computer......Lord only knows why.....I am hopefully getting a new laptop soon, so I WILL TRY IT THEN, BLOGGER. RIGHT NOW I JUST WANT TO POST A RIDICULOUS AMOUNT OF PHOTOS FROM OUR DISNEY TRIP.
OK, I feel a bit bitter now.
We're home-bound today after a night of Jack coughing in my face until 4am. Poor guy. He and Lainey seem to have mild colds.......could just be the change in weather and a bit of exhaustion after a fun weekend with Pa in town. He booked the Carlsbad Inn and they stayed on the water, swimming in the heated pool, conning Pa into all sorts of things we probably don't even know about.
All I'm saying is there is a baby doll in this house now that eats, pees and poops. And, Lainey talked Pa into it. That is how things go down when Pa or Caroline come into town. They have no self-control.
I have completed all of my gifts (except for 2, actually) and everything has shipped. My cards still have not arrived and you all should know that this is the greatest Christmas tragedy ever, given the attention I provide to them and, I don't know.........BECAUSE THIS IS PART OF MY NEW BUSINESS.
All of this to save about $4 in shipping costs.
Live and learn, people.
So, I will be up all night - one of these approaching nights - cursing at myself and blaming Blake for unknown reasons - addressing envelopes.
Also on the agenda:
*Gingerbread cookies with the punks.
*Gingerbread houses with Carter at school.
*Carter's Christmas party.
*Lainey's nativity scene (Lord help us).
*Jack's Christmas party.
*Jungle Bells at the San Diego Zoo.
*Holiday Snow Days at Legoland.
*Cookie Party with friends.
*Blake's anticipated holiday meltdown.
Anyone tired yet? These kids better kick it into gear and feel better soon. One week! It's all we have left to have the the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny BEEPing Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse.

Another tragedy? I've only watched it once this season. Haven't seen Love Actually at all. And, the only resemblance of A Christmas Story around here is our neighbor's leg lamp (not kidding).
Hope yall are having a great holiday season!
