Well... remember I said that things in December generally go up and down like a roller coaster? Yeah... Christmas did not go as planned at all. There really wasn't one. Through a series of bizarre events... including Max using the wrong pin on my debit card and freezing it solid until this morning when their offices were once more open to have them unfreeze it... to odd stuff up on the Bear's end. We called it off until Monday. So it goes.
So I drug a tiny turkey out of my freezer... thawed it the incorrect way in a sink of hot water, stuffed it and threw together a modest meal.
All four of my boys were here... Max, Boo, Squeaky and of course, Lorn... plus the kids dad. They watched strange videos that held no interest for me and played video games LOUDLY and joyously.
As for myself... I retired to my room. Max and I had a brief battle. So I did the adult thing and dressed up his Batman statue in drag for the fun of it. Ho ho ho.
My frogs were about in various ways and places. DH was visiting his family out of town... communication was very brief. Spoke to the new ill frog, who was alone for Christmas. Met another bran new frog on the phone. Interesting. But for the most part I spent my Christmas evening on the phone with LA frog and had a great time doing that. One of those people who have no trouble making conversation.
Today began with a wake up call from LA and then on to the business of getting my debit card back in operation. What a hassle! Now I have a new pin and have to remember to remember it... or I'll do what Max did and freeze it up myself. Yikes. Otherwise, just about as mundane a day as I could wish for... and believe me, mundane is sometimes very nice!
I've put the boys on alert... tonight is fend for yourself in the fridge and cupboards. I am off cooking duty. I hardly eat much anymore and after 36 years of making nearly all the meals, I am burned out. Its too cold to do much of anything outside. So I'll stay inside, nice and toasty and work on a post for Monday. I think I feel a story coming on.
So that's it my friends. This is my Saturday Evening / Sunday post. I hope you all had nice holidays. Mine was fine... I am not complaining other than I wanted to watch those little boys open presents. I get a real kick out of that. Santa can't wait until Monday. I understand Turkey was dancing with joy. Ha. Must have been fun to watch. But there will be other years. At the end of the day, I was smiling and happy. You can't beat that.
