Christmas Break

Twas the week of Christmas and all through the house the cats are still ass holes and the kids are all bored, and its cold and the dogs don't want to go outside to pee. But,I'm  happy because today  starts day one of working from home. Also, I got the job I interviewed for so all is definitely Merry and Bright. I am predicting a huge weight gain from not going to an office and no longer having to walk up and down the stairs of doom to get to the bathroom.

That being said. I am sick of Christmas music. Is it just me or does Baby It's Cold Outisde seem a little date rapeish?
"My mother will start to worry (beautiful what's your hurry?)
My father will be pacing the floor (listen to the fireplace roar)
So really I'd better scurry (beautiful please don't hurry)
But maybe just a half a drink more (put some records on while I pour)
The neighbors might think (baby, it's bad out there)
Say what's in this drink? (no cabs to be had out there)"
So whats everyone's Christmas plans? A couple of years ago after moving 6 times in 5 years and having a pretty horrible Christmas with the family of a brief marriage of mine, the girls said what they really wanted was for us to make our own Christmas traditions. So that's what we do. Since I bought my house we host Christmas with my family here. This year my sister is staying for a few extra days so we can work on the podcast too. She lost her Shih Tzu Scarlet on Saturday the vet thinks it was an allergic reaction to her vaccines. She said Thursday she coughed once and threw up once. Friday morning she woke up and was having trouble breathing. She took her straight to the vet (who dated our cousin for years) She stayed there for a day but they couldn't save her. So I am sure Heather needs to be cheered up.   I'm looking for new ideas for side dishes. Emmy has begged me to make a ham with all the Christmas trimmings. Whatever that is. I am a creature of habit and have no idea how to break the rut.

The girls are both auditioning for the same musical so the house will literally and figuratively be filled with the Sound Of Music. On the bright side its not for the same parts and since one is a Soprano and one is an Alto they sound great harmonizing together. I have no clue where they got their voices because I sound like the people from American Idol that everyone makes fun of.

When True Crime Hits Close to Home

Lets start this story by saying Saturday night I went to the movies and out to dinner with my ex husband and the girls. We got home about 11:30. I unlocked the door, came in and everything was fine. I was tired so I went right to sleep. The girls stayed up for awhile and then went to sleep. I woke up about 1:30 but got back to sleep easily, and again maybe 6:30. Nothing seemed odd but I also didn't get out of bed.

Yesterday I was home all day. I had a few chores in the back yard other than that I was inside all day until about 4ish. As I left he house to run to the store I noticed that my key wouldn't lock the deadbolt. I opened the door back up and noticed that their was tape where the deadbolt latch is. I wasn't thinking and got goo gone and cleaned it off. That's when I noticed the door locks themselves.

At some point on Saturday night/Sunday morning someone tried to break into my house. They didn't succeed that I know of because the deadbolt was latched Sunday morning. I don't have closet doors because I am paranoid and I have already checked the attic. I bought new door locks and have security alarms being delivered.


Just some updates

You may have noticed that I haven't posted in awhile. I have so much stuff going on that I haven't had much creativity left over to write. So here is an update.

  • I interviewed for a job that is pretty much what I am doing now. Fingers crossed we hear good news soon. 
  • I am packing up my office and trying to close out all of my work and its been a crazy time. 
  • The etsy shop is doing well and I am spending my afternoons filling orders. This has been a wonderful  thing and I am so excited to keep growing this.
  •  My high school won the state football championship. Its been a long time coming. I was following along every time someone went live. They totally shut them out 48 to nothing. Ok that's not really me being busy but it is me being a proud Alumni. 
  • Its that time of year when we have a million band and choir concerts and events. 
  • I'll be working from home the last two weeks of the year so I am hoping I'll be posting more often then.
  • Heather and I have a huge list of podcast topics we want to do and are planning a marathon recording day so I am researching my ass off.
