Standing in line at Borders, fifteen people ahead of me. Being on the receiving end of strange glances as my arms are empty of any apparent purchases.
Waiting anxiously for my turn to get Al's stocking stuffer.
Nearing my turn, noticing the three men and one woman cashier.
Trying to figure out who is going to ring me up.
Getting called over by only woman;
"Thank God I got you. I need the Christmas Playboy."
Singing Jingle Bells before destroying and devouring Gingerbread house.
Lenny, wide eyed, excitedly telling Owen:
"Nice EARRINGS Owen!!"
A hug, a kiss, and an "I love you" from two sweet ladies at work.
Waking Owen up yesterday morning, signing 'snow' as I did. Owen rubbing eyes as he looks out the window:
"Oh my cow!! Look at all the snow!!"
Bea bounding down the stairs:
"Guys! Did you see? It snowed! The trees are all snowed up!"
Bundling Bea up to play in the snow;
"Mom. I know the best game we can play in the snow. It's called; 'Playing. In. The. Snow.'
After a terrifying ride home from work last night, down rolling hills of winding roads covered in six inches of slush, arriving home in one piece, and finding mysterious package on kitchen counter;
The funniest damn gift I have ever gotten in my whole damn life.
I am Creepy. My sister is Muffy. Yes. We really call each other these names.
Do go check out her ETSY shop. And get yourself some pretty.
And check out Snarky Cards while you're there. And get yourself some giggles.
Also. For all of you:
I hope you get some fucking fantastic gifts.
