Seriously my computer was hijacked. So you know that strange man who sleeps here and pays the bills and calls himself my husband? Yeah, he discovered facebook sometime this weekend and spent the entire holiday weekend staring at photos and waiting for people to update their statuses so that he could make cutting remarks in response. Everytime I got a free minute to read blogs or update my own, I come downstairs to find it already in use. Computer hog! He showed an utter lack of respect for my readers who I know were frantically awaiting updates on my incredibly interesting life.
Anyway so here is what has been going on since last we met. Thanksgiving parade, Thanksgiving cooking, entertaining, Black Friday shopping (for me and kids so made no progress at all on Christmas lists), Friday night cooking and entertaining, stayed up late to watch part one of the Monk finale (since aforementioned entertaining might have caused me to miss crucial pieces of dialogue) Saturday shopping (again no progress on that Christmas list but I got three new tops so yay me!), and visit with Santa (interesting how the six year old was too scared to speak with the old guy but the three year old had no problem getting right up there and demanding things) Saturday night turkey leftovers, Sunday church (which went amazingly well since the six year old was enthralled with advent decorations) and fight with children (who think that since they got to stay up late during the holidays that that will be an ordinary state of affairs even though they have school in the morning)
I am mostly glad to be back in the daily grind since it means I actually get blocks of time to myself, like when everyone is in school or sleeping. However, somehow my house is even more dirty than usual which means more work for me. *Sigh*
