I Am Legend turns date night into fright night

Last night, date night, was supposed to be a relaxing, toddler free, fun evening. Instead date night turned in to fright night when we purchased 2 tickets, popcorn and drinks to go see Will Smith in I Am Legend. Very Scary! I walked out half way through. I just couldn't take it. My husband joined me a few minutes later. Oh well, maybe next time.

One of the fun things about being with family over the holidays are all of the fun games. Like hoss-n-feffer, Scene It and the new Are you smarter than a 5th grader dvd. We've also discovered a fun game called: Fact or Crap. Of course I've already mastered these and reign as champion - or at least better than my brother-in-law, David.

Merry and the two Ho's

So my dad is trying to get my toddler to say,"Ho Ho Ho, Merry Christmas", and all my son can get out is "Ho...Christmas". My dad then turns to him and says, "You're short a couple of Ho's and a Merry". That just doesn't sound right.

Falling Apart

This is the year I feel as if I'm falling apart. I'll be 36 the end of the month, and I've had more irritating health issues this year than at other times in my life. My husband said his year for "falling apart" was when he turned 30. I remember that year for him. It was a physical and emotional struggle. Of course, I have truly nothing to complain about in that my struggles have not been life or death. But, if I can make it through the holidays to number 36, I hope next year will be better health wise.

Why do men/husbands hold their wives purses like they've been asked to run into the drugstore to buy a big box of kotex? They try and hide it under a coat or at least they would never consider carrying it by the straps. I don't get it. Do men tease each other about these things?

What is Christmas?

What is Christmas without bows and bells,
What is Christmas without parking lots and malls,
What is Christmas without gifts and sweets,
What is Christmas without patent leather and stocking feet?

It's sharing something worth more than any gift a tree can hold,
Offering peace and life to an empty world.
Being salt and light for everyone around us
This is the true meaning of Christmas!

Is it a sin to use the men's restroom at church if...'re not one?!! Yikes! It happened to me today. I left my pew during the invitation to run to the little girls room. I went in to the empty room and took care of my personal business. Just before leaving the stall I heard the door open and another "lady" walk in. I opened the stall door, headed for the sink, and in the mirror saw a reflection of a man, whose back was facing me, in a green shirt standing at a urinal - that up till then had gone unnoticed by me. I WAS IN THE MEN'S ROOM!!!!!! I bolted back into the stall, held my breath and waited for him to leave. I prayed he wouldn't look under the door to see my pointed toe, shiny heels. Did he see me? I do not know, but Jesus did!

I'm sorry Lord!

To much Take Out?

My sister and I pulled up to a local pharmacy drive thru to pick up a prescription. When the pharmacist came to the window and asked "Can I help you?" a little voice coming from the backseat of my car said, "Fry fry, boc boc, pease." Translation: My 2 year old was ordering french fries and chicken nuggets -please!. At least he was polite.
