Whatcha doin'?

Me? Oh, you know, just sitting here trying to decide how I can convince the universe to slow down just a little bit.

Christmas is in one week. ONE WEEK. 7 days. 420 hours. 25,200 minutes. Okay, I'll stop.


*Deep breaths*

If only I could take a leave of absence from work for the last two weeks before Christmas. But, alas, I can't. Well, maybe I could, but, you see, I'm saving vacation time for a certain trip to Mexico that is coming in 4 weeks...FOUR WEEKS!!

That means that tomorrow, I'll wake up and I'll have to catch a plane at 7 in the morning. Because that's how time works around here...I go to bed one night as a small child, I wake up as a married woman of five children who is stressing out about the holidays and a vacation that will be here any minute.

Seriously, I swear to you I live in some sort of "Mario-esque" time warp. Maybe if I find a little green tube to squat down on it'll slow this craziness down. 'Course, it could backfire (*snicker* get it? "Squat" and "backfire"?!) and I'd end up in some hyperspeed world.

Wait. That's right. I ALREADY am in hyperspeed world.

Ugh. I've gotta go to bed. But I better finish wrapping presents, because you never know, I could wake up an 80 year woman tomorrow, the way things are going.

Goodnight. I'll see you in the morning...and I may or may not be wearing Depends, using bifocals, and looking for my dentures.


  1. Too funny! Can I copy this post and post on my blog? (kidding) I totally get how you are feeling-I'm still giggling.

  2. This seriously made me laugh!! Old school Mario is the only game I have ever mastered!

    We are taking a break from HS for the holidays, so I finally get to enjoy reading all the blogs I like.

    I hope you get to find the slow down button or the proper green tube, with no backfires ;-) I plan on doing nothing much beyond laundry today, and for me that is seriously slow!!!

  3. So true!! Great write!! Life goes by really quick!!!

Coming soon...

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

Crock-Pot Fajitas

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later! Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story ! And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized! You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. ( Ahem... ) Just keepin ' up with the times, friend. So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips... And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips... (Lemme just inte
