Ridiculously early

By Tara Zandra | November 18, 2013

Aaaand I just ordered this year’s Christmas cards.

Go me!

I got to make all the decisions myself, because the husband? Struck down with food poisoning. That would be the second time this year, I might add. Our life must look so fun.


But hey, at least those germs were polite enough to wait until after we took the family photo, right? We had a lovely time last night at California Adventure. First we took pics with Santa in their department store, then in front of the tree, and then in front of Carthay Circle. We figured after all that there had to be at least one good one so we stopped being careful of our hair and went to eat. After that we dropped the girls off at the swings while Chris and I got in line for Toy Story, then the girls joined us about halfway through. The ride was fun, as always. We then split up so Chris and Tabs could ride Tower of Terror while Daisy and I oohed and aahed over Carsland for a bit. Then it was a churro bite break then a couple more rides, then a fruitless trip to the Lego store before coming home.

Chris hopped into bed and I stayed up for awhile doing nothing of interest. I’ve had a pretty bad headache for the last 4 days so I just wanted a little quiet time. Eventually I slept only to be awoken at some point by my ailing husband, poor thing. I felt bad, but I also instructed him not to touch me in case it was a virus instead. Thankfully, it does not appear to be.

Today he stayed in bed for basically the entire day, the girls and I went to violin and then Girl Scouts for Tabitha. I took Daisy with me as Chris is in no condition to take care of her. He’ll be home tomorrow too as he’s still not right.

So I’ve had another quiet evening, basically alone. I got the cards done, crushed some candy, and took a hot bath. I know at this point I should be going to bed, but whatever. I need to create a scavenger hunt for tomorrow’s outing and probably crush a bit more candy. But then I really should sleep. I’m not particularly tired, but I will be come alarm time :)

This picture is all I got and I can’t even explain what made me take it. Yesterday’s smoothies, before they were smooth.

    I never order holiday cards but I did buy a ton at B&N about 2 weeks ago! Ready! LOL Your post reminded me I need a new blender. Ours started smoking a few weeks before our move and I made a note to get another one but with everything else just don’t think about it enough I guess.
