So I’m sitting here at my desk,
minding my own business trying to look productive
when I hear a horrendous sound coming from the hallway near my door.
It's a child.
Not your typical loud crying child,
but rather a possessed, blood curdling, screaming child!
I open the door and glance in the parent’s direction as to look like I’m asking
“If everything is alright”
when really I’m looking in their direction to say
“Really asshole!? You can’t hear that?”
And they are just sitting there ignoring the spawn of Satan like he’s not even making a sound.
WTF? …I hate people like that.
Not everyone can tune out your kid the way you can people.
Not everyone thinks it’s funny or cute.
Not everyone will tolerate it without wanting to choke or punch your child!
Normally I will call you out in public because I’m a jerk like that
and I will tell you to tend to your child or even use my mom’s favorite
“watch your kid before someone walks off with them!”
But I couldn’t do that at work. *insert sad face here* Instead I just had to politely smile, nod, return to my desk and wish chicken pox on the entire family.
Kidding! … Just on the parents.

Today I had to go to work for what I thought was going to be a few hours, I had this project I needed to finish. I was supposed to go in the day after Christmas but I was too busy sleeping, watching TV and eating so I lost track of time. Who wants to go to work the day after Christmas? Honestly!
When I left for work this afternoon Hubby was sitting where he usually sits on Sunday afternoons... in front of his laptop checking his fantasy football stuff, and multi-tasking playing a game on his PSP, while watching one game on our 42 inch plasma TV in our bedroom and watching another game on his 27 inch LCD "video game TV" which is also in our bedroom so he can play his PS3 or watch two games at once.
Yes, two TV's in our bedroom with a laptop and a PSP
forever attached to his hand! Anyway, I leave around 2:30pm,
I get to work and just start getting shit done!
Side Note: I don't know if I've mentioned that Special Girl Chris also works with me? Well she does and she just so happened to be working tonight.
So as I was saying, I'm getting my work done, I'm on a roll! Then Special Girl Chris shows up and distracts me for a few minutes, she's talking away. I'm trying to listen to her yet finish my work at the same time when I go to hit the "details" button and check my work, when really I hit the "delete" button and now everything is gone.
I wanted to cry, scream and punch her all at the same time.
Needless to say this set me back quite a bit.
I take a break and call Hubby, I let him know what happened and it's going to take longer than I planned. He sounds a bit distracted but I figured he was watching TV or on the computer...
Hubby: I'm hungry, what's for Dinner?
Bon Don: Tell one of the girls to make something for dinner,
since I'm stuck for a bit longer.
Hubby: Ok, but I'm hungry
Bon Don: Do you want me to pick something up on the way home then?
Hubby: Oooo yeah, but what?
Bon Don: Well what do you want? Jack's?
Hubby: Nah, it's ok... I'll get something here.
Bon Don: Ok sounds good.
Hubby: I'm hungry...
Bon Don: Are you drinking??
Hubby: *laughs* Can you tell? I'm feeling pretty good!
WHAT!?? It's my Saturday and I felt like having some beer!
Bon Don: *laughing* OK... well have fun! I'll see you in a bit.
Hubby: K! ... I'm hungry
Bon Don: BYE Babe.
I finally finish up, and head on home. I pull up to my house when I see Hubby standing outside on the porch, listening to blaring music on his cell phone smoking a cigarette. Hubby doesn't smoke, but when Hubby is drunk... Hubby smokes.
I walk up and I'm greeted by a big smile,
a swerving stance and blood shot eyes...
Yup he's drunk.

Who am I kidding, it was my idea to do all the eating!
This year we ditched both our family's. Usually we try and squeeze in my family on Christmas Eve and then we make our rounds on Christmas day to his family but not this year. We both worked on Christmas Eve so we used that as an excuse to stay home and not drive. We took the girls out to dinner, picked up some sweets on the way home and then we forced the girls to watch TV with us for the rest of the night.
Christmas day we opened gifts and munched on yummy food all day long.
This year we tricked our girls, we bought them all these random gifts from the .99 cents store and made them believe those were there gifts! HA!
I know, we're mean parents.
Finally when all hope was lost, we brought out one more bag with these little plastic wallets that had good old fashion CASH in it... they were very happy! Later Mz. Tapz came over with her tribe which is half of my God-Children, we watched movies and ate... again.
Last night when my BFF Himbo came back from The Tundra we all went shopping because the girls wanted to spend money, after shopping we came back here and had a nice bottle of wine, cheese & crackers and other yummy snacks. Apparently I was a boring date because Himbo fell asleep the entire time he was here, we had to start the movie over twice! Himbo went home and then Special Girl Chris came over at 11pm and we snuck out to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, when we left the theater it was 240AM! Who goes to the movies that late!?
Anyway, that was my fabulous Christmas story,
I'm so ready for New Years. Bring on the Champagne!

I had to pick her up from LAX...
I hate LAX.
It's SOoo not like Orange County Airport.
See at least here in Orange County they offer you valet service, and if you are picking someone up and want to wait in arrivals they practically offer you a Starbucks Mocha to make sure you're comfortable!
Not LAX I got yelled at by the angry cops on bikes! Ugly pedestrians that had the nerve to just walk into traffic and hold up a hand commanding you to stop for their impatient asses.
Not luxurious at all!
Anyway, I haven't seen her in a minute so I was willing to put up with L.A. for the day, but I can't help but have this sneaky feeling she didn't just fly in to "see me"... why you ask?
I'll tell you why, exactly 17 days prior she commented on the blog that she was craving a cupcake that looked exactly like my cupcake picture on my page. Well she searched all over Cabo for one but according to her the entire town does not believe in frosting.
"All of a sudden" the broad shows up "to visit" umm humm... sounds suspicious to me!
She tried to butter me up by taking me out to dinner (which by the way ALWAYS works) than BAM!
she said, "We need to find me a cupcake, but it has to be the right kind of frosting" of course Sprinkles was closed already and Albertsons was just not going to cut it with "whipped frosting" so we ended up going to Downtown Disney for some yummy cupcakes.
She didn't make it out the store before tearing into one.
...It was the right kind of frosting!

it went a little something like this...
BD: Good Afternoon, this is Bon Don...
Jo: Hi mom just wanted to tell you that I had to take Dingy a bath. (Dingy is our other Chihuahua)
BD: Ok, make sure you blow dry her really good, because it's kind of cold outside
Jo: I will... Oh and I'm cleaning the floor in the living room.
BD: ... Ookayy??
Jo: You want to know why I took Dingy a bath and why I'm cleaning the floor?
BD: What happen?
Jo: Dingy spilled over a can of paint in the back yard, sniffed it, stepped in it and ran into the house with white paws...ran around the living room and jumped on the sofa.
BD: Are you serious!??
Jo: Yup! she had white paint on her nose that was hard to get off, now I'm working on the floor...
The paint came off of everything including little miss Picasso "Dingy"

Just kidding it's my Hubby! (Fooled you huh!)
He's trying to ignore me while I sing EVERY song on the radio.
We stopped here before the game to load up on
nutritious drinks before the game...
What!?... There were PLENTY of lemons in my Coronas,
Therefore I fulfilled my daily fruit intake!
We met the nicest people in the parking lot,
they helped us prepare for the game by offering
delicious refreshments from a very sophisticated drinking vessel!
This was our awesome view of the field,
I could almost smell the uniform pants blend
of polyester-spandex from my seat I tell ya!
This is a picture Hubby took...
I'm sure these guys were trying to get a good shot of
the "field goal posts" just like my Hubby
but those pesky cheerleaders keep getting in the way!
Had to throw in this one of Dula Dip & Bon Don at the end of the night...
We were tired... not drunk! *wink wink* So don't let the red eyes and wiped off make-up fool ya. *giggle*
