One of Those People...
Yes, today I am one of Those people. I have changed the blog to have a Christmas-y theme before Dec. 1. How dare I do that before Thanksgiving I know... BUT I wanted to and so I did. HA
Everyone else has started so I figure I may as well get on the wagon.
I made my weekly visit to Target again today, but it was RUINED by some screaming bratty child who I could hear all over that store. UGH It did not stop me from admiring the Silver Christmas Trees though! Every time I see those silver trees, I have a short inner dialogue that goes something like this:
Inner Kiesha Self : "I would really really like to have a Silver Christmas Tree. They are so pretty... and I think my Nanny had one like that once..."
Normal Self: "But that is kind of tacky and totally un-necessary..."
Inner Kiesha : "So... still pretty and every year I still like them..."
Normal Self : "But WHERE would you put said tacky silver tree..."
Inner Keisha : "Good Question?"
and thus practicality wins again and I leave without a silver Christmas tree. and then I go to Kroger. I know all my women ( Nonnie, Momma, Celie) are rejoicing at this as they know I have not gone since Oct. 20th and that is considered mistreatment of the husband under my family constitution. Even worse, I was that girl in the grocery store today as well. Thanks to my momma, (and Oprah/Dr. Oz) I was in there for a dang hour at least studying all the labels on my food items for saturated fats, preservatives & fiber. I have never wanted to know about food labels and fat content, and I did not enjoy that momma!!! After that painful hour in the cold store, I look in my buggy expecting it to be full, but all that label analyzing slows you down and thins out the cart as I only had like 20 things.. drat. Whatever will we eat ha ... poor snuggle Erik. And everyone is always asking why we are so thin.... lol
I did score some peace though when I remembered to buy some rawhide chews for the doggles. They have been at it ever since I got home... completely behaving... perhaps I should take a picture to prove to people that this does actually happen sometimes!
well, I am outta words and if this gets any longer none of the dudes will read this. HA
