At about 4:45pm today, I realized four very important things.
Thing #1: I have bought exactly 1.5 holiday gifts. I can only count the burnt sugar crumbly fudge as half of a gift because I ate through the entire bag before I even walked out of Indigo. Actually, scratch that. I have only bought one gift. It’s a good gift. One that my sister-in-law is really going to like. But still. I am a gift-buying fail.
Thing #2: I had 4 cups of tea today, but not one cup of coffee, which pretty much explains the headache I now have at 8:00. It may also be the fact that Isabella is watching The Mysterious Ticking Noise on repeat. So now I will probably have another coffee, especially now that I have trained my son how to use the keurig and how much milk and splenda I take in my coffee (hooray for slavery!), and then I will probably be up all night. Which perhaps I should consider a blessingâ€”I can use the time to online shop my face off.
Thing #3: Not having a commute may be the most amazing thing to ever happen to me ever.
Thing #4: I really want bangs again. Stop it, stupid Glee promos and the lovely fringe on Rachel Berry, bangs are always a mistake unless you have hair people.
Oh! But now I have something to add to my Chrismukah wish list that now includes Jon Hamm, dance lessons, and a pair of UGG boots.
But there’s logic here. If someone else buys the UGGs FOR ME, it would truly embarrass the gift-giver if I were to, say, let the poor ugly boots sit in the box or sell them on ebay like I usually do with the gifts I don’t like. So I would have to wear them, you see. Logic.
So now we add hair people to the list. Because I really need me some of those.
And some more burnt sugar crumbly fudge.
Because Jesus, those were delicious.
