I’m not sure if I’m embarrassed or ashamed to say that 3 bags of cough drops have disappeared in the past 2 days. Usually I eat cough drops as candy, but right about now I’m seriously in need of them. Thank you all for the well wishes on my last post – and I hope if you’re sick as well, you get better soon too. Right now all I want for Christmas is my womanly voice, I don’t really think my mid-50’s smoker male voice matches my 20-something year old body and long brown hair. I may or may not have scared a few children at the mall yesterday into thinking I was a crossdresser.
No offense to crossdressers or anything…more power to you. You can have my voice.
Anyways, enough complaining, life is grand and it’s almost Christmas. My Dad and I ventured to the mall really early tomorrow morning to (try to) beat the crowds but within an hour of being there, nutcases and angry Moms surrounded. I keep telling myself one day that’ll be me, so I withheld from being too much of a poopy bitch about it; plus, I bought some amazing presents and got a pair of boots and some makeup as well. Thank you, Dad!
I bought my Aunt her favorite toffee from Williams & Sonoma…does anyone else just wanna pitch a tent and LIVE in that store?
We picked up a few more things and headed to Whole Foods, where I stocked up on some gluten free goodies to bring to our Christmas get-together and some other baking necessities. I plan on baking/cooking a lot this year. I’ve already
burnt baked quite a few cookies, I’m thinking cheesecake is next on the list. Oh lala.
Maranatha makes amazing sunflower seed butter…dare I say it’s better than Sunbutter? Just might be. Oh, and by the way…I wish I was kidding about those burnt cookies..
Thanks to my Dad’s pro chocolate chip cookie skills, we were able to save the next 4 batches. Never leave me alone in a kitchen with chocolate chips because I’ll either a) burn the kitchen down or b) eat them all. I’m totally convinced my dog snuck a few chocolate chips lastnight as well because she had the raunchiest gas EVER. Not to be disgusting or anything, but I had to share…and when do I ever keep news like that away from ya’ll?
I’m off to enjoy some breakfast and get back to baking, not burning. Hopefully I’ll be able to get a good workout in soon, maybe today…I’m really considering my shopping yesterday as a sign that if I can lift my present-filled bags, a few weights shouldn’t be an issue. Wish me luck!
What’s your favorite place to shop for presents?
What’s the latest kitchen mishap you’ve had?
Peace and love!
