The 80's version of Trivial Pursuit (We played it. It's fun)
A VCR DVD combo for the bedroom (Whoop!)
An Eric Idle book "The Greedy Bastard Diaries" (hubby has weird sense of humor)
bath junk (bubbles, gels, lotions, etc)
coffees and teas and a new travel cup (YAY)
a new (well, antique) china cabinet (that I neither asked for nor have room for in the house, so am insisting that hubby build us a new one. House.)
Money, money, money
and I haven't recieved my sisters or mother's gifts yet because my Mother and Grandmother are coming today. So I have to go put my house into some semblance of order. Hit the high spots, as they say. Oh, who am I kidding. My mom's coming. I'm going to go scrub for the next 6 hours.
I hope they like leftovers.
From this (vaguely phallic):
To very pretty and blocking Katie's view of the television. I grew them myself!
The word "holiday" is a misnomer, I think. I feel like I've been run over by a truck. I've spent the last three days cooking, baking and cleaning up, so I feel like I've been in the kitchen more in the past week than in all of 2006. I made Christmas dinner this year... that includes turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green beans, fruit salad, cranberry sauce, & apple and pecan pies, all from scratch, yo. Also did two benevolence meals (one had a baby, one has cancer) the 22nd and 23rd, of lasagnas, side items and cakes. Don't want to cook anymore. Tired.
And Dream Carrie says, "No."
Huffily, I might add.
Stupid, stupid Dream Carrie.
