Tiffany...glad DS party was a success. It nice when there is a small amount of kids. I'd be worried about the kid in the cast also.
Yes, we have wine and lots of other stuff to drink :)
I just made DD3 go change clothes. She came downstairs in a summer outift with capris and a 3/4 length sleeve shirt. Why does she think it's ok when the windchill is 16 degrees? Craziness. I think it was pure laziness and that was the first outfit she saw so she put it on.
We went to an open house at one of the grocery stores in town. It was like Black Friday it was so busy. They did have some ridiculously good deals on things so it was worth it. And they had wine, egg nog and other things for sample.
DH put some temp. filling stuff in my tooth. It seemed good for about 4hrs until I took a bite of a french fry and it fell out. He called the dentist at home and left him a message. I feel bad calling him at home but DH doesn't. He said they'd call him at home if they needed something. The crater where the filling was keeps getting bigger. I'm hoping they are open for a bit on Monday because it will really stink to have to have my tooth like this until after Christmas. It is now sore and my tongue keeps rubbing on the rough spot. DH is kind of irritated that they thought the temp. filling would last 3 weeks.
That really sucks about your tooth Meg. I used to work as a nanny for a dentist and so I was lucky if I ever needed anything after hours or weekends.
Robbie would try to wear shorts if we did not pack them away and it is -30C with the windchill here...
Date night was fun. We stayed in, ordered in Chinese food and watched The Campaign - pretty raunchy but it was funny.
Not sure when Robbie is coming home tomorrow, the quiet is nice.
Sean and I only decided last night that we were buying presents for each other. I was about $2 under budget and only took an hour to get everything for him. Now I have to wrap his presents and his present from Robbie - Robbie bought him a tool chest, all the tools are in a rubbermaid tote and are hard to find.
Margaret...glad you had a fun date night. Sometimes it's just as fun to stay home and do something than to go out. Inappropriate humor is good occasionally. We watched "Bridesmaids" one night and that movie is so inappropriately funny. DH doesn't like that kind of humor so didn't like the movie and was kind of digusted by it. That's fun that you decided to exchange gifts. Even if it isn't something much, it's still fun. A lot of our gifts DH and I exchange are gifts we know about because we'll be shopping and like things and get them for eachother. By now though, I've forgotten what he's gotten me. Enjoy the rest of your quiet time. It is strangely quiet without your child in your house.
In 1 hour DH is off work until Jan. 7. Except for his 12 hr shift on the 26th. I'm so excited for him to have lots of time off. It works really well that he had all this time off since his family is coming. Today we are going to go to the movie theatre and see "Arthur Christmas." The movie theatre does free movies throughout the year and different businesses sponser them. His parents are planning on getting here around 5pm. I think we'll put a roast in the oven for dinner tonight.
They released the names of the two killed in the accident on Friday night. It was a 23 yr old male and a 57 yr old female. They were in the same car along with another female who was injured. The male was her fiance and the female her mother. So she is grieving the loss of her mother and fiance. The ER nurse DH has been working with the last two night knew them. The male was in her wedding in September. The driver of the truck that lost control and hit them was also injured.
My dentist called us back today and he met us at the office and put another temp. filling in. They aren't open until Thursday so I'm glad he called us back. It was really nice of him to do this for me on a Sunday afternoon. I think I'll send him a thank you with a gift card in it. We went to "Arthur Christmas." It was a really cute movie.
I spent 1 hr 20 min vacumming today and I didn't even get to the main floor of the house. I'm saving that for tomorrow since I'd do it again anyways. DH's parents will be here in about an hour.
Went to work. Went to church. Dh is setting up the Christmas gifts from santa. I am so tired. Glad we have no one coming to our place. Hope we dont wake ds trying to get everything up and ready.
Glad you got your tooth fixed, Meg. I hate that feeling of something sharp in my mouth.
Sorry about the accident. Its been a depressing year in many ways.
Tiffany - Merry Christmas! Put your feet up and rest. I get up on not wanting to wake up the little one. We are lucky, within 30 minutes Robbie is out and unless sick will stay in asleep through anything,
Meg - glad that the dentist could put another temp filling in.
Today we went to the Star Wars Identities exhibit at the Science Centre - expensive but cool. We had a lot of fun. Robbie was a little disappointed today, we were going to have Chinese food for supper but we had lunch so late that no one wanted to eat before his bedtime. He opened his new jammies and a recordable book "T'was the Night Before Christmas" that I did the reading for (my dyslexia makes reading out loud difficult for me so I hate reading out loud, has no effect on my regular reading). Our church does not do a Christmas eve or Christmas day service unless it falls on a Sunday. Our tree is full underneath and Robbie's presents aren't even there yet!!!
I am going to make a slow cooker breakfast thing tonight - hope it is yummy. Just a recipe from pinterest.
Robbie is just on his way to bed...
Merry Christmas everyone!
My computer is broken. I am following along but just mostly reading from my phone with short replied. Merry Christmas.
I hope everyone had a great day yesterday! I know we did. We told the girls about the Disney cruise and they are super excited. We had set up a call from Mickey so that's how they found out. We went to my parent's house for a prime rib lunch/dinner and ate way too much food. I was still so full last night. My parents got a 17 lb prime rib roast...it was huge but sooo good. On Christmas Eve we went to the children's mass. DD2 was Mary and DD3 was an angel. DD1 is now a "big kid" so helped line up the kids to walk down the aisle. DD2 and DD3 sang in the children's choir. After mass we came back to our house and had oyster stew and chili and Santa came. Santa comes every year and brings a small gift. This year he brought them each a book. He has come ever since the first year after the girls' bio mom passed away. Then we went to my church at 11pm. It was a candlelight service. We didn't get home until 12:45am since the service was over an hour and it's about 25 minutes away. When the girls were really little they'd try so hard to stay awake until the end to get to light their candle during "Silent Night." They never made it all the way through the service. Now as they are getting older, it's easier for them.
Margaret...how do you like your new crockpot? I have crockpot night every week. Did your breakfast in it turn out good?
Tiffany...bummer about your computer. Hope it's an easy fix. Are you working today?
Have not tried my new crock pot yet..it will get lots of use once both of us are back at work. The breakfast was ok.
Sad news...Marisol is now in delivery at 22 weeks, they do not expect her baby girl to survive. My heart is breaking for her.
