Random Thoughts on Christmas Day

Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Random Thoughts During My Christmas Day

1. I need more sleep.

2. Bah-humbug!

3. I knew they’d be late and lunch wouldn’t be on time.

4. She should take a chill-pill.

5. Please sit down and rest.

6. Aw, what a cutie. (My new niece, Abby)

7. Ooh, book voucher. That will come in handy!

8. Can’t he see that he stole my seat? Does he need glasses or something?

9. I wish someone had given me a supersoaker!!

10. Run! Aw, heck! That’s cold!

11. It’s hot. I need my hat.

12. Oops! Wrong time, wrong place. Now my shirt is wet all the way through. I really need a supersoaker.

13. I’m tired. Thank goodness I’m home and can have a beer now.

My day was full of family, good food and a horrendously big waterfight where hubby and I both ended up very wet. Luckily it was a hot and sunny day. I’ve just driven home and can now sit down with a drink and watch some TV. I feel like watching some more Deadwood tonight. I don’t think it will take much to convince hubby. I hope every one has a day as good as mine.

    I’m so glad you had a great day. I’m sitting in silence on Christmas morning. Soon, the kids will be up, tearing open their gifts. Happy HOlidays!

  2. Alice Audrey

    It took me a minute to remember you are in warm weather. I was thinking how much I would NOT want a super soaker in the snow. :)

  3. Shelley Munro

    Adelle – it’s always fun watching the kids tear into their presents, even if they do make a big mess at the same time!

    Alice – yes, it was a lovely day yesterday. The boxing day sales start in an hour and hubby and I are off on a mission to buy some pots. It should be an interesting experience because everyone else is going shopping too! :lol:

  4. Colleen Love

    What great fun, Shelley!

    I have about 36 inches of snow in my front yard, I will send you some to add to the water fight! :)

    Happy Holidays to everyone! :)

    Julia – we had a successful shopping expedition, although it was very busy by the time we left the mall!!

    Merry Christmas, a day late, Shelley. Your Thursday Thirteen had 13 comments, so I had to mess it up!! yes, I am very competitive, but so is my hubby. We are both first born children—two hard heads butting together.

    Glad you enjoyed such a fun Christmas and had a successful shopping day, Shelley.

    Had a pretty good christmas here, but while you were basking in the sun, we were setting a new record for December snowfall (40+ inches) – and by end of Saturday could break the record for snowiest month on record as well. *sigh* These record snowfalls the past couple years are really getting old! lol

    (No TT for me this week, just passing thru…grin)
