I've just wound up my work day and I'm heading off downstairs to bake a batch of cookies. Which I must not eat because... because... because I make them for others, that's why. The second I start to think of them as mine is the second I eat them all. And that won't do at all, my dear blogging friends. Must resist the cookies.
On a lighter note, L texted me to say he was bringing home more Christmas Peppermint JoJos. Oh, and some food too. Things are looking up! (He texted that we would eat like kings tonight! To which I replied that I just need to eat like a princess, thank you.) You may wonder why he does the grocery shopping, and I sit here hungry, eating peanut butter from a spoon? Basically because he likes to grocery shop, (and I don't) and I want it to come out of his bank account (and not mine). So I wait for him to come home and go with me, or he does it on his own. But let there be a problem that needs to be dealt with over the phone (insurance snafus, etc.) and I am ALL OVER IT. L doesn't like to deal with anyone on the phone, especially if it may involve being on hold, so that's where I hold up my end of the bargain. That, and laundry day.
Cookie baking time, so off I go. I believe it will be ginger cookies today. Quick and easy. But I haven't forgotten you, my friends. I can't believe that my friend Larainy didn't already pick up on this and post some of these, but for once I've beaten her to the punch. These came off of a website called Awkward Family Photos. And they are. Very awkward, I mean. So in the spirit of Christmas, I offer you my 2 favorites. And you're soooo welcome. I'm a giver like that.
This was titled "Bad Santa" - what on earth has Kris been up to? Best not to ask...
Nothing says Christmas like this family portrait, eh?
I know. There are no words.
But if I hadn't gone blind, I would want to kick that smile right off of dad's face.
I need a double scoop of peanut butter after that last one.
