Things That Suck:
- Trying on clothes at the mall with two energetic children who are tearing the store apart.
- Realizing that you can’t squeeze into your normal size pants (maybe I should lay off the Christmas cookies?!).
- Finally finding a pair of pants that fit after a half hour & are on sale for $9.99, waiting in line for 10 minutes, and then realizing that you left your wallet at home in your gym bag. Seriously?!
Needless to say, it wasn’t a great trip to the mall.
How I felt after the mall:
After the mall, I had a deep, thoughtful, and insightful text message conversation with my dad. It went like this:
Dad: Happy Christmas eve, eve, eve
Me: Lol. You too!
Dad: Tomorrow I’m going to send you a message that says Happy Christmas eve, eve.
Me: Okay. Thank you.
Dad: Then after that…the next day I’ll see you and say Happy Christmas eve.
Me: That’s a really good idea.
See, I told you that it was deep and insightful. That’s some serious conversation right there.
Randomness #3: Lunch
Salad with romaine lettuce, spinach, red pepper, carrots, tortilla strips, and salsa ranch dressing. Bagel thin with egg whites, Muenster cheese, and peach preserves. Same ol’, same ol’.
This afternoon the kids and I worked on a top-secret Christmas Eve treat with these ingredients.
Do you have any random thoughts today?
