Admit It

NOW is anyone ready to get behind my idea to postpone Christmas until the 30th? We'd combine Christmas and the New Year into one long holiday and we'd buy ourselves a little more time to actually enjoy the season.

Also, I think winter break for the kids should only be 1 week. I think 2 weeks is excessive, bordering on inhumane.

Today Heidi Louise (my Dachshund) ate every bit of an unassembled gingerbread house, including half of the box. I was uber pissed because I had to clean it up, and because she looks like a snake who ate a goat, and is grunting like a hog with every breath which is irritating, but I will admit I am kind of grateful for the excuse not to do the gingerbread house. It's fun and all, but I've got a long list of things I want to do still and that one was sort of near the bottom.

I have to go back to baking (read: eating) cookies. It was fun for about 30 seconds. Now I'm just tired (read: full).

We did Christmas yesterday since we are heading skiing on the big day. I am mailing Christmas cards which I guess now are New Year's cards tomorrow. Ridiculousness-there is never enough time.

Yeah, this two week vacation is for the birds. It isn't so bad when there are a few more days on THIS side of Christmas, but after Tuesday, it is like eternity before the kids go back. Must make a note to refill the Prozac tomorrow...

Oh, and I'm all for postponing Xmas. I hope you are feeling better!

Is anyone else hoping that Heidi Louise will shit out an assembled gingerbread house? That's a Christmas Miracle I'd pay to see ;)!

Merry Christmas to The Ashleys!!

I'm on board with the plan, if we could extend it by one more day. I can't believe I go through all this freakin' work for one measly day. Christmas needs to be two days.
