Caution Needs to Get Moving

>Am I the only one with Nerf bullets ALL OVER my house?

>I am already mourning the loss of the Discovery Health channel. No, Oprah. I am not excited about an entire channel devoted to your favorite things when I could be spending time watching gory medical drama and sappy birth stories.

>Santa Claus came to visit the Cub Scouts at last night's meeting. My child says Santa's breath smelled like beer.

>During one of our two snow days this week, I devoted myself to making homemade cinnamon rolls. After all that work, my children asked if we could have the ones from the store next time.

>Did you know that a relationship is not official until it's on Facebook? The big question around the local high school is, "Are you guys FB official?"

>I saw the ugliest shoes in the Lands' End catalog. Hideously ugly. I also bought a pair.

>My son has texted his father 30 times. He has texted "Kelly" 300 times during the same time. In other words, things are as they should be.

>Please tell me why the bottom crust of my apple pies always seem to be a little soggy. I love to use juicy apples, but is sogginess the price the pie has to pay?

>To finish up with a bit of embarrassing news: this week we received a Christmas card but didn't know who the people were who had signed it. The embarrassing part? It was from our neighbors. More embarrassing? The same thing happened last year.

>Need to find like-minded people who spend Fridays majoring in the minors of life's fragments? Go visit Mrs. 4444. I promise that you'll love her.
Mommy's Idea

See you all after the holidays (so I threaten).

Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas! I didn't know that about FB official, too funny! LOL about the card too!

I hope you and yours have a very nice Christmas!

Oh my goodness, I would be an emotional wreck if I were in HS in this day and age. I don't think I could handle Facebook and high school at the same time LOL

Oh, I was so disappointed that OWN was taking over DHC. We have a million channels what's one more? Why take away one? harumph.

Thankfully you figured out who the card was from - but how funny it was your neighbor. twice! haha

Blog hopping and found your excellent blog. I've not mentioned Hubby on Fb does that mean I'm single? Hurray! I have added myself as your newest follower.
Please drop by and maybe follow me if you fancy a laugh. I'd be delighted to welcome you.
Friendly wishes from a festive UK

The Santa's breath frag made me laugh a little too loud at work.

Busy Bee Suz said...

You always give me a laugh!!!!
Did you explain to your son that Santa is stressed this time of year; hence the beer breath.
If there is not Discovery health channel then who will I come up with new diseases for myself?
Ugly shoes happen to nice people. I know this to be true.

My oldest is majorly PO'd about the Discovery Health channel. She is a doctor/med junkie wanna be and not at all happy.

I feel really old.

I have Nerf pellets popping up in the most unusual places! One came through the dryer just last week!

Thing is, my oldest son hasn't been in the house in several months so he and the 13 yr old haven't had a gun battle to justify said pellets. That means they have been there for quite some time.

I love random thinking, it works for me. If relationships have to be FB then I'm going to be mighty lonely, and then maybe not.

So I'm way behind in visiting fragmenters, but these were HI-larious! BTDT with the homemade stuff and the kids going "ewwww..."

Happy New Year! Oh, and:

Seal the bottom crust of the pie to prevent sogginess. Brush the bottom crust with egg white, sieved fruit preserves for extra flavor, or melted chocolate for the most effective moisture-proofing of all.
