Yesterday, while shopping for groceries…
I picked up the ingredients for Monster Cookies! Have you had them, especially fresh out of the oven? Absolutely DELICIOUS! It has all my favorite ingredients: Chocolate, M&Ms, Oats. I didn’t make them yesterday… but hope to get to it today.
My list of things to do include:
Addressing and mailing our Christmas Cards. (I never get cards that say Merry Christmas because I know it will not likely make it before Christmas!)
I have a bunch of packages that I need to put together and mail as well.
I have all the office gifts that need to be wrapped and organized.
I have our gifts that need to be wrapped and organized, too.
I need to go get Sanj’s gift… well, one of them.
There is the never-ending tidying up.
There is supper…
It’s all good, though. I have to pick up our laundry from the laundry mat and then there will be the endless task of sorting and putting away.
I have a little project for the moms (mine and Sanj’s)… putting together an album for them. Thank Goodness for the hour photo people!!!
There is so much that I want/need to get done in a day! I am really looking forward to the New Year where I will actively begin the much talked about writing of my book. My mom will be here for a bit and so I hope to write her stuff too.
Of course this means me taking NO NEW PROJECTS! I am hoping that once the never-ending bathrooms are finished… I will have the self control to bury myself in my office and write away. I am sure that once I actually get into it, I will be hooked.
I am so excited about this! I also have another project that I want to do… publish my blog into a book… just for me. There are different companies that do this. Yet, this means me going through the blog and fixing it up a bit. It will be a gift to my boys someday, I am sure. They can see into the mind of their mama. Scary… I know.
Last night, as the boys were downstairs watching a movie or something, Sanj and I were sitting in the family room, enjoying a fire and the Christmas tree. Max was there, playing on his iPod. I mentioned that the talk would be happening soon. We were laughing and and chatting and the atmosphere was so relaxed.
I said, “Max, let’s have the talk right now since Daddy is here too.”
It was the funniest thing! I am not sure who was stressed out more… Max, who shot out of his seat or Sanj, who changed three different shades in three seconds! lol
Max said, “Ah, I want to be taken out of school and to lunch.” (As is the tradition, his 3 older brothers have had before him).
After Max wondered off, I begin telling Sanj the talk. I told him that since he is too chicken to be part of the talk, at least maybe he would like to know what I said. (Insert his very discombobulated face here). And I began… “When moms and dads are married… and love each other, sometimes they show each other…”
As I was finishing up, Sanj looked at me and asked, “Do you not have a filter?” LAUGHING OUT LOUD!!!
Me, a filter? Apparently not. This is one of the reasons he loves me so much! No filter! Whatcha see is whatcha get!
