Oh. My. Word.

Folks, let me just tell you...

I left my house this morning and won't be back until tomorrow. I have spent a good part of my day shopping for all the little things I will need for Christmas that I get all ba-humbuggy about when I have to do it with the kids.

But without them?

Fa-la-la-la-la. La. La. LA. LAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

I've got stocking stuffers and stuff for the kids' Sunday school teachers. I picked up something I needed for homeschooling. Got my hair cut. Found a gift I need for an upcoming baby shower. I even BROWSED at a store containing aisle after aisle of HIGHLY BREAKABLE merchandise...

Now, I am at the library and I am going to do a little work on my 500th post (can you stand the suspense?) and I will do it uninterrupted!

So, I am going to go get to work. And then I am going to go eat. Chinese, I think. Then I am going back to my nicely appointed hotel room and I might just watch TV. I thought it might be fun to have the experience of watching it AND hearing it at the same time.

Quilting... swimming... reading... crochet... oh, the possibilities...

Is it bad if I feel a teensy bit jealous?

Just a little bit?

Especially at the watching TV in a hotel room part?

ENJOY! Fa la la la laaaaa, indeed. :-)

I want to join in too...

FA A LA LA LA LA LA LA LAAAAAAA!

I got two days of shopping, uninterrupted meals, stockers stuffers, etc. too! Except I didn't get the hotel room with my own TV! :)

Isn't life grand? I'm so happy you got to go kid-less. It's the small stuff isn't it that counts? Way to go Paul!

Happy 'late' Thanksgiving!
