I’M THE LION, RAWR LIKE A LION…

i’m sick. so sick. and silly monkey is sick. so sick. we’ve been sick for over 10 days now. how does that happen? i’m not quite sure what it is. it’s snotty & sticky and oozey & gooey. M thinks we just have bad colds. i think it’s just gross.

christmas was fun. we spent a lot of time with my brother and sister, loads of time with M’s parents and siblings, and tons of time just being together. but not too together – considering silly monkey & i are sick, yet M… not sick. not even a sniffle.

so i got my new coach bag (i love you mr. bleecker tattersall tote M) to go with my new coach sunglasses. M got his beloved wii (which he opened before thanksgiving & is perhaps why he is not sharing snot rags with me & silly monkey), and silly monkey got a plethora of toys & shoes & toys & clothes & toys & candy & toys. we really spoiled each other this holiday and we kinda needed it – ok, wanted it. though, not as much as we’ve needed & WANTED our puffs plus.

i made a delicious holiday feast of mashed taters, gravy, veggies, bread & green bean casserole, to go along with my homemade, fabulous, moist & juicy honeybaked ham – ok, not so homemade, but still fabulous, moist & juicy. silly monkey ate mashed taters & veggies, then spit the rest of his dinner at us b/c M & joshua decided it would be funny to humor him & laugh at the spitting, to which i replied “not funny”, to which M replied “yes, funny”, to which joshua replied “yea, it is kinda funny”, to which i replied “no, not funny”, to which silly monkey replied “haha FUNNY **spitspitspitspit**”, to which i continued to reply “so NOT funny” – but ok, it was kinda funny.

all in all it was a good day.

only missing one thing. only missing mom. i still think about her all the time and miss her all the time and wish she was still here all the time. and then i am thankful that i had her for nearly 28 years to hug and love AND that i will have my entire lifetime to think about her, miss her & wish she were still here. and also thankful that i know what love means, feels like, and does.

and love makes you panic for the silliest of reasons sometimes. i was particularly panicked on saturday while i was packing up some holiday decor. i realized that i had not gone to hallmark to pick up THE ornament. ok… so this might not sound like a big deal, but this is THE ornament that mom started buying for me when i was 18. THE ornament that has continued in a collector’s series for the past 10 years. THE ornament that has always been my favorite christmas present. THE ornament i FORGOT to seek out b/c i’m oh so busy being not so busy. THE ornament that is sold out on hallmark.com. THE ornament that is going for 3 times the price on ebay.

so sunday, i made an early AM trip to a nearby hallmark and scoured the ornament clearance rack. and i got one. i got THE ornament. i cried.

so…

silly monkey & i are still sick. i have about 8 billions photos to upload. and i’m running out of tissues. OH and M has to work tomorrow… new year’s day. pooey. oozey. gooey. ah choo. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
