EVERYONE is Insane EVERYWHERE
I must apologize for my lack of blogging lately...duty has been calling elsewhere. We actually got a Christmas tree (hooray!), so I have been a decorating Nazi. No one is allowed to place the ornaments on the tree except me. If they attempt such activities, I promptly move them to where they look much better. My husband used to try when we were married some 9 years ago, but, being the most understanding and wonderful human being ever, he has relinquished his command in this area.
The rest of my week was like this:
My mother-in-law, bless her heart, thought the kitty in the blog entry below had *actually* overdosed and was expressing much concern after receiving my email.
My boss called me into his office on Friday and told me that I may have to work a few days during my vacation (I always take 2 and a half weeks off during the holidays and I look forward to it all year long). He said it was "up to me", though. That is a nice way of saying "You don't have to, but unless you want to be the first on the lay-off list next year, I would suggest coming in and working." I of course smiled and said "OK", but really, inside I was saying: "Yeah, WHATEVER you MF - I'll get you for this".
There was not ONE happy person at the Christmas tree place. Like my fellow blogger Dooce says: Deck the MF-ing Halls.
I put big Jingle bells on my dog's collars. It is really quite amusing. Today, they went on one of their running and barking-at-everything-in-the-yard tangets, and it sounded pretty confusing. The dogs next door didn't know whether to bark or laugh. I will be dusting them in glitter on Christmas Eve.
I made cookies today. The package says "Makes 5 dozen". I have 2 dozen. Perhaps they are mistaken. Perhaps I ate too much dough.
