This weather has been so scarily nice that I'm really starting to wonder if we're going to have the big bad winter everyone's expecting. I don't mind the snow, it's the ice I fear. There is nothing quite like landing on your big ass in the driveway while trying to get into your car. Well, there's that and the whole act of driving on the ice. Many people (my husband, for one) would argue that I can barely drive in perfect weather conditions, so you can see where I'm going here.
I need to start shopping for Christmas. I know I say that every year about this time and always end up waiting until after Black Friday, but this year I really just want to get all of the shopping and wrapping crap long out of the way so I can, dare I say it? enjoy the season. I always end up feeling rushed and frazzled and big crowds in stores just piss me off. That's why I want to do a lot of my shopping this year online. I've found a bunch of really cool sites for my family, too, which really helps.
Listen to me: already planning gifts and it's only mid October! We haven't even celebrated Halloween (which I have no idea how we're spending. Thinking maybe just taking the kids around the neighborhood or doing the Malloween thing like last year). As far as costumes go, Davey wants me and him to go as Mario and Luigi and Em wants to be
Chocolate and being scared poopless. What could be better? Unless of course, you're Tiggy.
