I first want to apologize for being away for the last few days. We have implemented a new reward system for Peanut and it is working FANTASTICALLY! There was nothing left to take away, we had taken everything else. So if he turns in all of his homework and gets a good report from all of his teachers, he can choose one thing to get back for that weekend. This weekend he picked the computer. So when he wasn’t doing his chores he was on the computer playing with the stuff 13 year olds play with.
So bottom line is that I didn’t get a chance to post my 15 things that Tamara tagged me with the other day so today that is what I am posting. Then check her out at Over the Homespun Hedge. I apologize ahead of time for anything offensive I might say, but remember…this is my bubble.
1.) Have you started your Christmas shopping?
Just did this Saturday…started not even close to finished.
2.) Tell me about one of your special traditions.
Traditions for me never work out so we don’t have traditions. In fact, I kind of despise the word. I like to do things with my family that they will remember…for a few years we went out as a family and bought one Christmas decoration that depicted something that we did as a family. Then we would bring the decoration home (wall or tree ornament) and personalize it for that year. Lately, it is just getting through the season without major catastrophes…this year that did not work out.
3.) When do you put up your Tree?
We put up the tree this past Saturday and decorated it Sunday. Never is it put up prior to November 28th, it just doesn’t happen.
4.) Are you a Black Friday shopper?
Used to be, but lately the sales are not worth it to me. If I see anything worth it I give the money to my SIL who loves to do that kind of crap.
5.) Do you Travel at Christmas or Stay home?
I would have to say that travel is a loosely translated word. We wake up in our own house on Christmas morning. We then get in the car and drive to my mother’s house. My mom lives 5.7 miles away.
6.) What is your funniest Christmas memory?
You GOT TO GO READ TAMARA’S there is no way I can top that one.
7.) What is your favorite Christmas Movie of All time?
The Year Without a Santa Claus.
8.) Do you do your own Christmas Baking, what’s your favorite treat?
Yes, it would have to be 7 layer magic bars. But I think mine only have 6.
9.) Fake or Real Tree?
Fake, for years we could not figure out why Peanut and Butter were sick and in the hospital every January until we found out they were allergic to real trees.
10.) What day (as a Mom) does the actual panic set in to get it all done?
I don't. If it is done, then it is done. I cannot panic…it is not in my makeup.
11.) Are you still wrapping presents on Christmas Eve?
12.) What is your favorite family fun time at Christmas?
My favorite family fun is the shopping that I get to do with the kids for each other.
13.) What Christmas craft do you like the best?
Get the “F” out of town. Who has time for a Christmas craft?
14.) Christmas music. Yes or No, and if yes, what is your favorite song?
Yes, to a point. I like listening to it on occasion. I would have to say my favorite is Away in the Manger.
15.) When do you plan to finish all your shopping?
Do I have to? If so then it will be done by the 20th because I will not have time after that.
