A Day Late and A Dollar Short

Friday's Fab 5
1. Christmas was WHITE
2. Kidlets were appreciative
3. Baby felt good
4. Christmas Eve was relaxing
5. Dayton really did see Santa

Someone (but I can't remember who) posted a really cute series of questions that they asked one of their children....who was it?! I read way too many blogs to keep up (and my memory totally bites). We ran through a bunch of questions with the kids last night and it was hilarious!

On the B Side: The baby is sleeping. The kids are playing well together and are home is on it's way to being clean as I wade through the mess that Christmas threw up all over!!!

ThingsThat Must Go

The Radio From Hell show does this list regularly. I've never submitted anything and while it seems quite inappropriate for the time and season, I am posting my own list anyway. Sigh.

Things That Must Go;
1. People who make turns while driving and change lanes in the process. It's as if you feel entitled to pick whatever lane you so choose simply because you are turning? No. No. No. Not only is it rude but it's dangerous. While you may think it's fine to jeopardize your own safety, DO NOT jeopardize mine. Yeah, thanks.

2. People who steal other people's parking spots. Let's forget that I was patiently waiting with my turn signal on. I remained civil. I did not honk my horn at you, flip you the bird or offer any choice words. I do think that that is inconsiderate and p.s. the fact that your wife uses a cane is not an excuse to be rude. Keep your ignorance to yourself.

3. People who use the Express Checkout Lane who obviously do not qualify. No, it is not necessary for anyone to count the items in your basket. It's apparent to all that you do not belong in this lane given the crazy amount of stuff you are purchasing. While I patiently waited I did not grimace (even though I wanted to), particularly given that you literally butted in front of me and about 3 other people.

4. People who suddenly take an interest in something because you have touched it, picked it up or examined it more closely. Really? There are like a bazillion other things in the store. Have some consideration and if nothing else, don't make it so obvious. It's just annoying and the fact that you are practically falling on me in your self inflicted process just sucks. Ugh.

5. Moms and their big, ol' honking strollers! Look, I understand. Really, I do. I have 4 kids. I get it. However, I refuse to join your aisle clogging, space dominating ranks. Do you have any idea how frustrating it is for the rest of us to squish and squirm around you and your all encompassing awkwardness? It's so not worth it. Believe me.

6. Walmart. Enough said.

On the B Side: I fully realize this is not a nice post. I just feel *meh* today and this is what is on my mind in the crazy hustle and bustle that characterizes this time of year. Surely I am grateful for people who do not partake in these thoughtless behaviors.
