Happy Christmas Eve!

So we’re running around here like crazy as usual. Got some last minute stuff taken care of yesterday. Went to see Santa at the mall. Lines were very short. Had to shoot our picture twice, because we asked for landscape, so it didn’t look like we were all piled right on top of Santa. The picture taking guy only got from the chin up of our one son at the bottom of the picture, so it looked like he was just a floating head.  So we backed up the line a little and re-did our shot, and then they were all worried because they got a little out of their frame of the Santa booth. I wanted to be all like, “Lady I can crop that.” But I didn’t because it was that stoopid Cherry Hill company, and they have a conniption when you speak of altering anything they do.  They also have super cracked down, and no one can sneak a picture of your own with Santa. Used to be if you bought the package deal they didn’t care. Now they have Santa in this dark and scary Santa hut, with super low light, and everything is really shoved in close, and blocks at every angle, so you just can’t get a shot. It’s stoopid! Their poor camera guy has to hang through this little four inch cut out windows to take their picture. Crazy!!!

So then just before we left the house yesterday to do all of that, our drains started backing up. It was very very windy yesterday, and didn’t get above freezing all day. I really don’t think the pipes have frozen, but there is a blockage somewhere. We’ve gotten it more unblocked this morning, and have been running really hot water down the drains and it goes down, but sloooooooowly. So we’re dealing with having a plumber come out on Christmas afternoon/eve also. Ugghh! We were thinking maybe since the high winds and cold weather yesterday the town maybe had problems with the grinders at the sewer plant, and that’s what might have backed things up. Not really sure how all that works but when the two brothers were in charge of the sewer, and the other was town Mayor, we didn’t have these problems. Now new people to town have ousted “the old boys club”, and things have turned to crap around here. At least “the old boys club” got things done!!!! Fricken frackers!

AND we have packages coming today too. OMG, everything is so busy, busy, busy! I was truly done with all this shopping, and getting, and making things a week and a half ago. Dh likes to go on his little, “Prices are soooo low right now” sprees.  That’s why I simply don’t check the sales. We don’t really neeeeeeeeeeeed it. But whatever. We have three birthdays in December, and three in January, plus Christmas to blame it all on. Go for it.  😛

Now if we get the pipes cleared I have a mega pile of dishes to do, two baskets of laundry to wash, and still a lot of presents to wrap, and a turkey to cook. Looks like my afternoon is full!!! Best get after it!
