festivus for the restofus

Christmastime 2007 was spent in the stinky armpit of Arkansas at my sister's house. This year, for the first time, just our immediate family got together. Every year since I've been alive we always go to my grandparents in Kansas. This year was nice...really relaxing...lots of toy-playing, movies, and Wii. (I'll show photo proof later from my christmas present camera.) We came up after the Xmas eve service and left Wednesday evening-ish

We met up with Josh and Katie and had dinner and saw "Juno." Please see it. It's fantastic!

Carl's parents totally understand good gift giving. While we did not participate in presents of any kind, we couldn't help my mom and his mom from stopping. Carls family gave me 2 shirts (they fit and are cool), a robe (which I've been wanting), gloves (much needed), warm socks, and a bag (purse...whatever). My mom got us our favorite chex mix (homemade), funfetti cake mix, blueberry muffin mix, and some muffin cups. (we're easy to please) My sister got me this cup that when you put ice in it the ice lasts for 4 hours. It will come in handy at work for sure. My aunt sent us a santa salt and pepper shaker and an ornament...we've received a lot of ornaments this year which is humerous to us since we don't have a tree (Dave Ramsey Apartment is just too small) Carl's Grandma Bev and Aunt Sandy came through town on Friday and gave us lots of goodies like an oil dipping set ( like a glass oil thing with 4 little dipper saucer things) a Minnesota magnet for our fridge, some inspiring calendars, etc. Oh, and some santa jingle bell ornaments.

See you next year!!!

I do this at least twice a month

I'm completely over working full-time. I know this is no new rant, but seriously. If parents aren't going to do what it takes to be a parent. If they're going to do drugs while they're pregnant and create children that require special care. If they're going to distribute cocaine or sit in jail or kill their kids then I don't want to do this anymore.

You can have your insurance, your holidays, your cubicle, your office supplies, and your christmas parties. I'm want out.

So, if any of you are up for paying off my $50,000 school bill so I'm debt free, that'd be great.
