Same shit, different day for me here in Casa de Loco.
Thanks to the trash trucks and the cars driving on the crunchy snowy, ice covered roads I woke up earlier than I wanted. When my alarm went off a few minutes later I had no idea why I set it early, so I covered my head with a pillow and willed my headache away. No such luck.
When the clock struck seven I remembered that I was making cinnamon rolls for breakfast. I'd like to say I leaped out of bed with a renewed sense of purpose and love in my heart but we all know that isn't the least bit true. I did, in fact, stumble to the kitchen and pop open a can of Pillsbury cinnamon rolls cuz that is how I bake. I also popped open a can of Coke because we all know I am a coke whore.
I staggered downstairs to check the computer since my lovely laptop has been on vacation since last Thursday. Twitter and Facebook assaulted me with VD greetings. Yes, I am snickering like a 12 year old boy because IT IS FUNNY. HILARIOUS I tell you.
Everyone seems to need to broadcast to the world how much they are loved by posting pics of their spectacular gifts, details or their phenomenal plans, examples of their breathtaking crafty creations that will be the hit of the school parties.
Me? I sent $3 cover charge and Fun Dips. I rock like that. Jealous much?
I let the monkeys sleep in about 10 minutes since my fabulous rolls were still cooking and there would be grumbling about hunger and deprivation if they had to wait even two minutes to eat. Einstein is pissed that I let him sleep in because he's ten. Peanut rubs the sleep from her eyes and can't wait to see the breakfast surprise. At least someone is excited.
Einstein and Peanut collide as they both stagger around the hallway corner. Einstein dramatically drops to the floor, screaming and yelling at his sister. It is completely 100% her fault or so he leads her to believe. She runs to her room sobbing, "It was an accident! I said I'm sorry!" All this commotion wakes StinkBug who opens the bedroom door and glares at all of us for ruining his life.
And that, my friends, is how We do VD in Fractured Family Tale Land.
My bff sent me a text "Happy Black Tuesday!"
She gets me. and she loves me.
I am so excited for my first link up with yeahwrite.me.
