Life is... gone to see Santa

The words just aren't coming to me tonight.  Perhaps I should be thinking about going to bed, but I just can't seem to wrap my thinking around that either.

I kicked the heater up a couple of degrees tonight, I've been very cheap frugal this year and avoided turning the heat up very high.  But tonight, tonight is different.  I feel the need to soak up some extra heat and just be warm.  There is nothing I hate more, than being cold.  You Dingleberries are well aware of that I assume.

Heavens know I complain A LOT about cold and the cold weather.

Today, was mostly good.  A large amount of stress has mounted on my back as of lately.  Just life and stuff weighing in on me I think. Sometimes it feels like those around me avoid all things regarding all things in hopes that things will just... go away. To their surprise, well eventual surprise  That is not the case. In fact, they should really take a good long look and see that hey their idiocy is probably in fact making things a whole hell of a lot worse than they can imagine.  Turns out, that whole common sense thing I was fussing about the other day... Yea, it doesn't come standard anymore.  Makes me want to SCREAM.

I think I need a vacation ... from most things. A few in particular.

So today I took the chirren to see Santa.  :)  It was pretty fun, we went to this place in town ( and I got a couple of pictures with my phone) We still haven't told Pokey about Santa yet, I'm not sure if the kids at school have convinced her yet, or not.  I did tell her this year that we believe in Santa, if we want gifts. I'm familiar of this whole Santa is a lie thing and we're lying to our kids and all by telling them Santa brings gifts, this annoys the hell out of me. Why can't we have an imagination and let them have some fun. We are only kids once.  I don't see the big deal and when people I know go off on it, I'm like geez.  Don't be such an ass.   

Pokey got her hair cut today too.  She enjoys it being short, no matte rhow much I try to convince her to let it grow. It's actually better this way, girl does NOT brush her hair.  Makes me nuts.

We had fun though, E Monkey wasn't exactly thrilled with this situation, but we made it work and there wasn't any of those HILARIOUS screaming crying santa photos that everyone else gets.

Sometimes, I secretly wish I could get those.  That's horrid isn't it?!

Scared of santa photos.. Have you googled this?  It's pretty funny.  :)

Last one and I'm done, so this place we went to, it's like a furniture store.  Free Santa man, I love it. But they have the worlds largest mattress. I know what you're thinking, probably the same thing I was thinking when I heard that.  

But OHMYGOD it's crazy big!

In this photo the kids are on one little end of the mattress...  This furniture store is in an old warehouse here in town and this mattress is soooo long.  I wish you all could see it, I wish I'd gotten more picture of it, or maybe took a picture of the whole thing.

It was shocking really.

I thought it was shocking when one of the neighboring towns took it upon themselves to attempt to win the record for most scarecrows.  OHMYGOD the amount of scarecrows, but I'm getting sidetracked.

This mattress was huge and I can only imagine it would be one of the worst things you'd ever sleep on, but whatever.

The kids had a blast running and jumping and rolling.  E Monkey had learned how to roll.  He was rolling around on the thing, was so funny.

I may have had moments of crazy stressed out I'm going to stab choke someone, but the little things like watching those kids laugh and play. Makes it all worth it.

Life is short, I shouldn't be such a bitch all the time.  Well, not to everyone anyway.  Some people just deserve it and I should be better than that. But it's so hard!! Sometimes....  Why do they make me the way I am!!

It's almost Christmas, it doesn't feel like it to me.  How about you?

Hang in there, until next time :)
