Countdown ... Two Days!

Two days till Christmas!  Two days till Christmas!

Today I got to thinking ... we needed a present for First Wife since she's having a Christmas party.  So I ran back over to the craft mall to look for something she might like.  When I was finished there, I ran to Peases (again) thinking I could find something ... which, come to find out, they don't even make.  And when I walked out their door, I noticed that right next door ... was a nail salon.

I know it's probably a sin of some sort to spend money on yourself two days before Christmas but ... I went ahead and got a pedicure anyway.  SO relaxing ... SO nice.

I stopped by Stoney's and visited for a little bit ... I showed him the presents I picked up and we watched a comedy special that was both hilarious and disturbing all at the same time.   I couldn't stay long because, unlike some people, I have to work tomorrow ... but it was a nice afternoon.

Sigh ... okay, time for truthfulness.  I still haven't finished the sock monkey I need to sew ... I was so tired when I got home that I managed to get a shower and fold a big load of clean laundry ... but that was about it.  In fact, right now ... at nine o'clock ... I could shut my eyes and go to sleep for the night.  I know I need to pick up that monkey over there and sew ... but right now ... I can hardly keep my eyes open.

Two days till Christmas!  Tomorrow night I'll make a dessert for First Wife's party ... wrap the last few things I have to do ... and yes ... finish sewing the monkey.   But tonight?   I need a little more sleep ....

Why Can't You Do It?
Why can't you set your monkey free?
Always giving in to it -
Do you love the monkey or do you love me?
Why can't you do it?
Why do i have to share my baby with a monkey?
