Yes, that’s going to be the theme of Christmas Season 2002. So sayeth Todd, boyfriend of my cousin Michele. We met Todd for the first time yesterday and that was kind of almost his response to everything so we dubbed it theme of the season.
We had lots of fun baking cookies – and decorating them too. Lauren and Christine definitely have a career as “The Schweeeet Sisters” baking and decorating company! La rolled out those Italian cookies like a pro and Chris was busy decorating gingerbread people (“Look! It’s Twee and Queen Latifah!”).
Mary (2nd most perfect cousin in all the land) organized it and contributed the christmas spirit while Dani and Jon had us cracking up with stories of re-gifting from J’s side of the family. All in all, it was big fun!
Day one of vacation was good – Sharon (PeegWoman) woke me at 10 with the funniest damn story of how she was run over by a car! (I know you are all gasping in horror but the way she told it was hysterical). That girl is relentlessly positive and can make even this event funny. She has to have surgery on her ankle on Thursday so I will be watching her doggie Sam overnight.
I stopped at the pet store to buy Pizzy some new bedding material and treats and saw another peeg that was so sweet (Schweeeet???). I am SOOO tempted to get her but I know I will get my head knocked off from consort if I do that. Surely SOMEONE out there will give it to me for Christmas and I will have no choice but to keep her, right? RIGHT? I will even name her Bear (don’t ask why, I have no idea). I know (hangs head in shame). I have too many pets as it is. [sigh]
Any suggestions for fun on Day Two?? I am getting my nails done. That’s about it so far.
