aaarrrgghhh......that's just what I feel like saying. I have felt like a pirate all day long. I don't know why, I think its because I have had a long frustrating day and everytime something went wrong, I found myself saying, "aaargghhh!". I started the day when my son decided that he didn't want to go to school just because and then as his ride is waiting for him, he is dilly dallying looking for the perfect outfit which is most likely in the dirty clothes hamper, but its all good. Its not truly dirty unless it is clearly visible and then its not completely "unwearable" if he has only worn it one day before. I guess that the stain or dirt or whatever is still "fresh" enough for a whole nother day. I am sure that the teacher's think that the child only has 2 shirts and 2 pairs of pants because those are his favorites. Then I had to take the van back down to Jax to get the sliding door panels fixed and they said it was going to take 5 hours and that a courtesy van would take me to the mall. Well, they forgot about me and the courtesy van came and left and I was at the dealer for more than an hour before I could get out of there. Then getting back to the dealership 6 hours later was the same deal, she was running all over Jax and I would be the last stop and by then I was exhausted, totally pooped, but my sweetie pie Markie Poo was at home being quite the domestic diva, of sorts. We had a dinner with our church's home group and I had signed up for Cal Q's famous cream cheese chicken enchiladas and desert. Mark ran by the store and I had told him to get a quickie defrost kind of pie, but being the cake maker that he has become, he decided to make a 3 layer lemon cake with his own icing AND he made the enchiladas. What a man!! So, in other words, he can bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan!!! Our dinner was great, but aaaarrrhhhh, we came home to disaster on the homefront, too much myspace for one kid and too much tv spacing for the other kid and the kitchen was a disaster. (Part 2 of tonight's special 2 part feature blog: I have also included some pictures of my decorations per the request of some of my blogging buds. Here is the lowdown on a few of them, we have a small candy tree in the large hallway, a very small gingerbread tree on top of our hutch (I love gingerbread men and have always had one in the kitchen), and a large tree in the scrap/den room which I bought on clearance on Christmas Eve last year that I did all in blue and silver and snowflakes because that room is brown and blue and it looks kind of cool. Its hard to get really good pictures where you can really see everything, but that's that. Enjoy!!! )

Sounds like a stressful day. I can't imagine being stuck in a mall for 5 plus hours. It is one thing if you need to be there but another thing altogether if you cant leave. The trees are beautiful.
