who needs a title?

By Tara Zandra | December 20, 2006

I got all my cards addressed last night, then Chris did the return addresses and together we signed them all. It was late and we were rather tired hopefully they all say the right thing and all have a picture. I probably missed a few people, but let’s hope if I did, those people didn’t send us a card, lol.

My dad sent a check yesterday for the family Christmas gifts from him so Chris and I picked up a couple items for the girls last night while Tabitha was in hula. So far we chose Disney Dogs DVD game and Wheel of Fortune plug and play for Tabitha. For Daisy we chose a 2-in-1 electronic instrument that is a violin and a guitar. We figured she’d like using a bow like Tabitha does when she practices everyday. We also picked up a Doodle Pro which used to be called Magna Doodle when Tabi was little. Then I hit upon a great idea and ran to Toys R Us by myself and got them a joint gift in the form of the Mega Fort by Cranium. They are going to love it! If there is one thing those two like, it’s forts. Chris and I will do more shopping on Friday after he gets home as well as Saturday. Every year I say I’m done and then, I’m in the stores two days before Christmas, without fail. It doesn’t bother me though, I go with the expectation of long lines and cranky people and a relaxed attitude that it will all get done and then I’m just fine.

So tonight is a little bit of nostalgia; I’ll be at a Guns N Roses concert. Normally I’m a firm believer in “you can’t go home again” and have little desire to see washed up bands who were big twenty years ago. But! when Axl was on the MTV awards last year or the year before, I just loved watching it and listening to him so much. So when we heard they were coming to town, Chris asked my mil to buy the tickets for me as a Christmas gift. I’m really excited as I read a fabulous review of the performance from Sunday. I’ve saw them 3 times way back when and then saw Velvet Revolver two years ago which features three ex-GNR members and now we’ll add in tonight. Should be interesting, that’s for sure :)

    Oh wow Z - I can’t wait to hear about your evening @ GnR! I haven’t heard much of anything good about Axl over the past few years so I’m interested to see how he was! LOL
    I hope you had a great time!

    Sounds like many neat things for the girls! I do the same thing, leave Walmart and say “I’m DONE and don’t have to go back!” then I end up going back again and again.
