Count Down is On

After this last weekend, I'm not so sad to see Monday.  ANd the fact that the week is one day closer to Friday is even better.
Nick and I knocked out most of the Christmas shopping this weekend.  We left the boys with Papa and Nana and headed to Cheyenne.  There's far more shopping there than there is in our town.  We got just about everything we wanted to for the boys.  I think they will be thrilled Christmas morning.
Saturday afternoon, I took the boys for a haircut.
Lookin' shaggy.
They look like cute little boys again now, not Shaggy impersonators.
Saturday evening we went to a game night at friends.  Most of the games were fun, but neither Nick nor I liked Balderdash.  Apples to Apples was way more fun. That one might have to go on the list to get for our family.
In other news we might have finally fixed the stupid toilet in our main bathroom.  The handle broke a couple moths ago.  Since the toilet is weird and has a angle for the handle mount, finding a new handle has been a challenge.  While we were in Cheyenne, we hit Lowes and found a better handle to hopefully fix the issues the toilet has had. A couple fine tuning moments and it just might be fixed.  It sucks to have to think about a toilet so much. I mean, who really thinks about it when they flush?  You just do it. Sadly, we have been thinking about the stupid toilet far too much.
Sunday, Nick brewed a batch of beer.  It is a repeat of the chocolate Milk Stout we did last year.  This batch should be even better. I'm really looking forward to it.
There was also some family drama this weekend with my brother.  Not really blogable but it did make things stressful. Just another reason that I'm kind of glad for Monday.  It can't be worse than parts of this weekend were.
So how was your weekend?  Relaxed, eventful?  Are you counting down the days til the weekend?  We are because we get two whole weeks off for winter break, Christmas and New Years. Now to figure out what we are going to do with the kids for all that time...

And now for some Christmas cheer:
The muppets do the 12 days of christmas.
And then the Redneck 12 Days of Christmas.
And Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer is silly fun:
So there you have it, silly Christmas fun.


  1. Loved your song choices! I don't think there is another Christmas song as funny as Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer!

  2. Great minds today!
    I love the Muppets. The other two..just too funny!

  3. Glad all your shopping is done and indeed our toilets are quite a part of our lives eh. Hope yours will be fixed with the tweaking.
