2nd short week in as many, and I’m already getting depressed that we have to wait a whole year to hit the holiday/days off season again. I mean, from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day, we’re flush with holidays. I love it. Live for it. I’m in the post-holiday “oh my God, I have nothing to look forward to” period. Sad.
Or maybe it’s just me. Some people are happy the holidays are over.
What would be nice is if I had this whole week off with Junior. Man, do I ever miss school vacations. We had no idea how great we had it back then.
Man, do I sound happy today or what?
I’m sorry, but I am only human. Although I’m officially working from home (no, really I am) I took Junior to the mall for lunch today, and I snuck into Filenes to see if they had any sweaters. I got a $50 sweater set (black) for $20. And then I had to walk by purses for the 2nd time and got sucked in. Oh my goodness, it was like being in a candy factory. And the amazing thing was the discount. Am I supposed to turn down a $5 purse? I’m only human you know! Sheesh! So ya, I bought three. Black, red and purple. I was going to give one of them to my step-daughter, but she hates my taste so I may end up with all three of them. Hey, at least I can say I tried, right?
p.s. The Chuck E Cheese isn’t open yet but it is WAY bigger than I thought it would be. It looks nice. The only way to access it is from outside the mall (just like the Old Navy and Circuit City.) Oh, and the DQ/Orange Julius is open.
p.p.s. Why the HELL did they get rid of Auntie Anne’s pretzels? Communists!
Ahhh, Sunday Morning. I keep thinking it’s Monday, and I’m guessing I’m not the only one. I am sitting here resisting the uncontrollable urge to go to the mall. I want to take advantage of the sales, but I don’t want to have to take Junior with me, as he hates shopping and the whole thing would end up being a tremendous pain in the butt. Mr. Dump knew I wanted a sweater and some pants and a pair of shoes for Christmas, but was wise enough to not buy me any of the above. I mean, you don’t just buy shoes for someone else for a gift. But you can tell that person to go pick out some shoes after Christmas.
I’m also hammed out. I love ham, don’t get me out. But I had it for three out of the past five meals. Dinner Friday night, lunch yesterday, and a few bites of ham and potato soup that my sister made last night. It was great ham, and there is still a piece or two of the leftovers in my fridge right now, but I could really use some chicken today. I did get the leftover lobster bisque from my sister’s house. Silly humans were eating the ham and potato soup because it was “home made” (as opposed to the bisque, purchased at Scupperjacks. Have you ever had it there? Heaven.) So I think I need to bring some over to my mom’s house because I do NOT want this to go to waste, and I think my dad would like some.
Yes, I’m sad it’s over. It really did sneak up this year. But in another way, I’m glad it’s over. You know, I won’t dwell on it too much. I was looking to see if we had any Kahlua around here. Is that too much to ask?
