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.
