Not that this has anything to do with anything, but just for the record I have to admit that the Kay Jewelers commercial for the holidays drives me insane. Enter man and woman in a house on a stormy night. Big clap of thunder and the woman fearfully turns into the arms of Mr. Macho and he says Don't be afraid I will always be here. What a sexist...stupid, poorly acted ad. I love thunder storms. The louder the better. It is clear Mr. Macho and I would conflict. Don't get me wrong. I'll take the diamonds, but I plan on oo-ing and ahhing at the lightning, while comforting one of my cabana boys.
Now snow storms are a different story. Not really. But I needed a transition.
I am rolling along on my December Daily. Not quite up to date, but not too far behind that I feel the stabs of wanting to give up and take up golf or some other form of strenuous exercise. Whew!
First up is Day 5 where my sister, family and I went to a tree farm to get our trees. Yes, a farm without any cows as I mentioned in my last post. Sadly, no cows, but lots of options for trees. Great time. The rub-on on this page cracks me up. Obviously the designer does not live in a cold climate, because when you are cold and shivering there is no way you can add in a letter U when saying BRRRRRRRR. That U makes me love this rub on.
Day 6 is about "cranky, complaining about everything tonight" me. This day I wore my brand new green scarf and realized I am going overboard on shopping the sales for everyone, but mostly me. The journaling mentions that I bought both a Cricut and a Silhouette. For the record I bought a Silhouette and then was presented with someone doing a favor for me by picking up a Cricut that probably fell off a truck. Kidding, but what a deal! Yay Fay! $100 for a Cricut and I didn't have to wait in line at Menard's three hours before opening, fighting hoards of crafters for 15 units? Well, not a good comparison. Menards was charging approximately $150. HA...SCORE! Whoa...now there's undeniable proof that I am a hoarder. My mom has claimed the Cricut, so have no fear. Finally, I can rest easy as I know she has found something to keep her off the streets. Well, a good snow storm would do that, too, and one is blowing in today. I better find a man with Kay Jewelers' diamonds to comfort me. Hmmm...I am beginning to like that commercial.
