Ready

Apple pie with vanilla ice cream dessert,  Au Bon Pain cranberry almond macaroons made, cookies ready for tomorrow, last of shopping done, hissy fits completed.
 
 
 
The last one happened when I was jumping out of the car in front of a store with cars behind waiting, as bags and merchandise fell out, caught on my shoes.  The fit intensified when my throwing arm missed the door opening and I continued picking up and throwing.  Always a bright side - the old fart behind us got a chuckle.  Once again, I was jumping out of the car, purse strap wrapped around my shoulder, filled bags (for exchanges/returns) slipped onto my arms, traffic waiting behind.  I can't get out.  I pulled at the purse strap, yanked the bags, maybe it's my jacket pocket stuck on something.  Fit is getting nasty and the cuss words are flowing.  I CAN'T GET OUT!!!  I'm caught on something but with so much on my lap, I can't tell what.  Horns are now blowing.  My husband gently hits a red button to release my seat belt and thankfully, my body didn't jerk forward hard enough to tumble out.  I still had to fight my way out of the belt since the bag handles were over my arms.  But I made it.  This time, there was no chuckle from the car behind.  He was young.  He'll get over it.

I feel your pain. I'm like a bag lady getting out of the car, too. Plus I always have a large drink with me (nonalcoholic, I assure you), ready to get spilled. It's a good thing to be old enough to laugh at ourselves! Always a ready source of comic relief at hand.

Have a great holiday, Marly. ...jan

So funny. Don't you hate it when young people look at us like we are old? So glad the hissy fits are over so you can have a wonderful, relaxing Christmas. Enjoy the Day.

Thanks for making me laughing today because I'm sitting at home alone with a big bladderinfection and seeing food makes me feel sick.
Have a wonderful Christmas today with all the people who you love.

Tomorrow, Saturday, December 26, you can relax, take it easy, eat some pie, don't go anywhere, just "chill". That's what I'm going to do.
Merry Christmas Day, Marly, Mark, Carole and family !

LOL- sad to say, I can totally relate to that evil seatbelt monster. Hope the coming new year is extra good to you and yours!

You are hilarious. I'm thinkin' we're getting close to just writing all the kids checks and enjoying their smiling faces looking at my smiling face (rather than the grumpy one I'm trying to hide by Christmas Eve dinner). I remember being thrilled when my late in-laws wrote us one big check and put up a table top tree. Oh, well...
