Ten on Tuesday



Ten on Tuesday
1 | Merry Christmas. This year, I’m going for it, instead of saying the Oh so politically correct “Happy Holidays” I’m saying Merry Christmas! I don’t think it really actually offends all that many people, and most of the time I get flack is for when I try to be “PC” and say Happy Holidays, then an awkward conversation ensues about how stupid it is people are that worried about offending each other. I agree, no awkward conversations this year – Merry Christmas you filthy Animals!

2 | Eric and I ordered our first Chord of wood for our house last week. The guy arrived from Olympia (go figure) and dumped $200 worth of wood in our lawn. Eric and Tim worked all day to meticulously stack it and get it covered so it stays dry. Happy to report we’ll have a warm house this year! It makes me think of the PEMCO commercials “Flawless Firewood Stacker”.



3 | This weekend was kind of a flash. I knew it would go by quickly, but I had no idea how quickly. I had two very LONG days, and a not so happy Sunday after a late party night on Saturday, but Why is it that December seems to be the shortest month in my life?

4 | Tim and Katherine officially get the keys to their new pad on the 27th of December! I am so happy for them! They are looking forward to their new place, and spend their evenings packing up a few things here and there.

5 | We’re beginning our conversations with the Santo’s and our dreams / hopes / plans for the house. I am getting a little giddy I can’t even deny it.

6 | I am 89% done Christmas Shopping. Kat’s gift arrives at the house via UPS today, then I need a few more stocking stuffers, and gifts for my co-workers. But I’m happy that I was able to get Dad & Leslies, Tony’s family and Shannon & Erica’s out to them before the third week in December! They all received theirs around Wednesday of last week! High five to myself!

7 | I’m not normally even doing any shopping right before Christmas – but I will be going out on the 22nd since that’s when Eric’s watching football and when I have time to finish up my shopping, so wish me luck – and pray for my stupid soul.

8 | Christmas Crafting is my favorite thing ever and I have to admit I’m totally missing it this year. I guess We’ll be “Going big” with it next year!?

9 | My co-worker Aly went in to take her Series 7 for a second time, and missed it by 3 questions after having missed it by 2 questions last time. I feel for her, and at the same time, it makes me feel comfort that someone else in this firm actually struggled with the 7, I don’t feel so alone! That being said, two other of our co-workers passed it with scores in the 80’s this week – Hang in there Aly, we’ll get it!

10 | My diet is officially cancelled till December! Bring on the Christmas goodies!
