3. Don't listen to the Mayans.
I made it home safely around 11pm. Still uncertain if the world was actually going to end, I slipped into some nice, silk, jammies and slept with freshly applied makeup. Totally kidding about the makeup.
Krista Rae was born 27 years ago! What a day that was! It was cold, rainy, snowy and we walked 20 miles with no shoes, uphill,,,,,OK, I'm exaggerating, but I know, for sure, that's what Gracie would say. I was so, so happy to have a sister. She was like my very own doll. Only this one cried and pooped entirely too much. That was the downside. The upside: Just precious! I mean, the cutest little munchkin E.V.E.R.!! My everything!
"Happy birthday, Krista Rae! Here's to many more wonderful years, pending the Mayans don't jack with us anymore! I wish you a lifetime of greatness- I love you!"
With gifts piled in my basket and my hand on the Lysol spray mini bottle in my pocket, I was ready to stand in line with more people who looked like they opted for no bath and no brushing. C'mon people! Doesn't anyone out there have consideration for delicate noses anymore??? After an hour of standing in line, I paid for gifts that were not for me and I was finally ready to hit up the next few stores. Not willingly. "Family, you're lucky I love you all!"
Our trip home (to Corpus) was well under way around 6:30pm. A 'shoulda been' two hour trip turned into a ten hour trip thanks to the effing line at Boat N Net! We waited an hour in line just for BNN! Ridiculous. Don't do the math, it makes no sense. I know! I know! Anyway, I don't know what was more exciting...ordering through a PVC pipe or ringing the doorbell to order.
|Yes, this is an accurate picture of the 'doorbell' and 'pvc pipe'|
We had some really great shirts! Stephanie's shirt was Kevin from Home Alone and her husband, Aaron had the infamous 'leg lamp' shirt. Both hand made. Of course, they took home prizes and trophies!
Sunday night we drove in to town just in time to make it to Tony's branch party. Bowling party. Not too Christmassy, but fun nonetheless. The food was great, company was great and I walked out with a bottle of champagne as my gift, s.c.o.r.e.!
