Did she just say Cheez-Wiz?

In the spirit of trying to blog consistently, here's a quick run down of the past few days. I promise some video footage as soon as I get a chance to load it to Vimeo or something.

Thursday night was the annual Mildred Elementary Christmas program. I'm a terrible person, but I went there out of obligation because I'm really not sure that I was entertained. OK, I probably was while Peyton was singing with gusto. Very narrow plastic seats made my bum quite numb and we were in pain by the time we got to stand up.

Last night, I went to a Christmas party hosted by some out of town friends. I thankfully avoided traffic, had a great time and spent the night in Lewisville at my Aunt Lois' so that I didn't have to drive all the way home late last night.

This morning, I took her to Cracker Barrel for breakfast, witnessed her feed 19 feral neighborhood cats in her backyard and headed on home.

I missed a phone call from Mom's cell phone by 9 minutes, right before I left Lewisville, and tried about every 10 minutes all the way home to call her back, but it went straight to voicemail every single time. (I found out later her battery died.)

I spent an hour and a half over at Mom's Aunt Eula Mae's house after running an errand for her. Dad said, "good grief, you've done your good deeds this weekend." That was kind of rude, just because I spent time with two family members over the age of 80 does not mean that I did a good deed.

I went to the grocery store to pick up a few essentials and found a jar of Cheez-Whiz. Haven't seen that in forever, but just the other day I was wanting to make nachos. Is that random or what?

And now, I'm really, really sleepy and procrastinating in doing something I really need to be doing. I'll get it done tomorrow.

Between getting in late, and then not being able to sleep well (I never do in that bed at Lois' house for whatever reason, and I got hot, and can't sleep hot), I am so thankful I get to sleep in my own bed tonight, and sleep well, I will. --- That would be the world's longest run-on sentence with too many commas and ().

For now, me and my ADD self am turning off the computer and probably taking a nap before I can find the energy to take a shower and go to bed.

Merry Christmas Eve Eve Eve Eve Eve Eve to all, and to all, a good night!
