As I get older, the more days I need to recover from Christmas. My kids were the "typhoid marys" at the family dinner yesterday, hacking and coughing all over the buffet table. My house lay in ruins, toys are eveywhere. Dishes and laundry are piled sky high. My hopes of cleaning and baking during my free time are dashed. Recovery will be slow, but I'll get there. Maybe I'll even find time to make something fun over the next few days. I have a recipe for silly putty.

Weird family stories from the holidays! I want to hear them if you have any!

after 40 years of mostly disappointments and feelings of not good enough, bob and I decided not to buy presents for each other. What a relief. I did go to the Auto Zone and buy him some mud flaps today- from the dog- because he didn't get to open any presents and I did (at school)

Some might call that weird. Others might think I'm on the brink of genius!

Also- count on hell freezing over any minute- I made oven fry chicken breasts, homemade mac and cheese and got some frozen green beans. This is a sure sign that the end is near and that Bob will come home from work completely not hungry.

Ok, here's one for you! Call it an 'outing' story: after seeing two very sweet girls who have obviously grown up so much in the last year, I was aghast that I'd given them obviously too juvenile presents! And then, not only had I done it for them, but also their cousin. Here's the cousin story - she now reads and counts to 100, but I gave her alphabet letters & numbers cookie cutters to use with her gramma who bakes terrific cookies. duh. And the two sweet girls looked so lovely in dress-up clothes and surely would be too old for playing with giant stuffed dogs and play ponies. Sound a little familiar? You know, you might even inspire me to blog again. Shhh! Nobody, but nobody knows I have a blog - not in the family, anyway. bye!

Yes, I know who you are. LOL! I've been found out!

Are you kidding me?! Bibi (code name) LOVES that dog and takes it all over the house with her. And the girls latest thing is horses and ponies. In fact, they both received my little ponies from their mother. Bibi especially loves anything that has to do with animals. Bibi loves acting like an animal too on occasion much to my dismay. Our language consists of horse neighs, tiger growls, and dinosaur roars.
