Christmas Potpourri...

Christmas ~

My house is almost clean from one end to the other for Christmas. The tree and some other decorations are up. Christmas shopping is approximately half done--the easy half. Ha Ha. (My husband and my son.) Tonight I'll be hitting Wally World to, hopefully, put a big dent in the hard half: my two daughters. Okay, well, only one is really hard. The other daughter is easy, plus she's shopping with me and can point out stuff she likes.

Tonight (before Wally World), we'll also be putting together our Redneck Gingerbread House. From 2005:

I wish I could find more recent pics, though. We tend to add or upgrade stuff each year. This year we're thinking about pink flamingoes. I'll post pics after Christmas.


Have you ever witnessed a 40-year-old woman singing "Eeny Meeny Miney Mo"? I was shopping yesterday, trying to pick out a game for my son to play on his Nintendo DS (a hand held game console, Mom). My daughter and I narrowed it down to Super Mario. But which one--there were three. So my only recourse in choosing...yep. Eeny, meeny, miney, mo, catch a tiger by his toe....

Durango Envy ~

I've seen a lot of Dodge Durangos driving around lately. And every time I do, I feel a bit of envy well up in me. I miss my Durango. I really do. It was a great car. We still have it, actually, only it's not really drivable. With about $6000 it could be, though.

We're hanging onto it for when we have to help my daughter buy a car...we promised to match whatever she saved...sigh.

Well, that's enough of that. I suppose I should get back to wri--er, work.

Rednecks don't wear army helmets, they wear camo baseball caps! Do you need to ask me how I know??? LOL

I'm done buying gifts, now I have to finish the ones I've started. I will be locked in the house until then and hopefully no one will want in for too long.

It will be a wonderful Christmas! I saw a rainbow today.

Happy Solstice
