Thought I was done Christmas shopping... then my son (he's 18) received 2 gifts from friends, that of course I've already bought. Not just bought, but one of them I researched and slaved over the internet to find, and sweated over it coming in time. I stood there thinking "Really? Seriously? What are the odds?" God evidently is having some fun with me.
So now I have NO idea what to replace them with, but have to spend tonight wandering aimlessly among the other panicked masses that I thought I had cleverly avoided. Rrrrrrr.
Okay, enough of that. Think happy eggnoggy thoughts.
I picked up my daughter's copy of Twilight and started reading it last night. Figured with the obsession my kids have with it and the movie, I might as well join the insanity. I was, after all, on the Harry Potter bandwagon for many years. I owned a bookstore five years ago, and got to get the books ahead of time and touch the covers before anyone else did while looking at the door to see if the book police were going to morph out of nowhere and arrest me.
Of course I was supposed to be working on that freaking synopsis that has become such a white elephant in my life I can hardly breathe while saying the word. But I didn't. I started Twilight, and congratulated myself for choosing that over computer chess or mahjongg.
After I hit the mall tonight....oh lord... yeah after that, I want to make some more banana nut bread and my husband wants some more pralines so I guess I know what the evening will consist of. These food holidays are exhausting! Anybody have any easy awesome QUICK recipes to share?
