It’s December. I mean, I am sure you knew that…but seriously. How is 2016 almost over? I am still writing 2015 on things. Even HJ mentioned how fast the past year went. Usually by this point, I have posted gift ideas, and deals from various places. This year, it completely slipped my mind.
I keep meaning to post HJ’s annual interview, but keep putting it off until “maybe tomorrow”.
I am hoping my time off over Christmas will help me officially feel caught up on life. Which sounds silly since I have all my Christmas shopping done, decorations out, and cards sent (for weeks now). But it’s little things like, “Oh my gosh why are there so many clothes on my bedroom floor” and I keep forgetting to grab light bulbs at the store, so the mud room is pretty dark. Also, my tv remote has been broken for three weeks. Three weeks. We have had the tv on the same damn channel for 3 weeks. I have been to a store numerous times since then, but just forget to grab one.
Last week, I finally ordered a remote from amazon…and got an email today that something happened to the package while in route and they will reship soon. (I wish they would say what happened, it has to be a good story.) Looks like we will continue to watch channel 7 for a few more days. Plus, once I get the package I am sure I will realize it needs remotes and have to get those at the store (which means I will continue to forget for a few more weeks).
I have also recently realized there are some days where cooking dinner just isn’t going to happen. Like on Mondays. HJ has a lego group that meets from 6-7. There is no way I can pick him up, get home, cook, eat and back to school by 6. So I am one of those moms that lets him eat a lunchable for dinner now. Which is kind of silly since he doesn’t even like cheese.
On that note, cooking for a kid that doesn’t like cheese is weird…because I love cheese. He also doesn’t like potatoes or eggs. In the last year, he finally decided that pasta was ok…as long as there is no cheese. However, he loves vegetables. The kid ordered edamame for dinner before.
Anyone who has seen HJ since March knows this, but he hasn’t had a haircut. I convinced him to trim his bangs once, but otherwise it has just been growing. It was finally at ponytail length last week, and I got him to get it cut. Just a trim! To shape it! (actually the elf got him too) As soon as he agreed, I raced to a salon. And he got it cut…I mean slaughtered. You guys, he looked like Lloyd Christmas. If you don’t know who that is, google it quick and come back. We both cried. I took him to a friend to try and salvage it. It’s still not good, but better. No pictures…he won’t let me. But that pretty much guarantees I won’t force him to cut it for years.
That is all I will ramble on about for now, but I am hoping to get back into my normal routine soon. Promise.
