I have finally completed my christmas shopping! YAY!!!
I am telling you shoping in -9 degree weather is hard work. And for the past 2 weeks MN has been in the low single and minus digits. The roads are a mess from all the snow we have gotten so far. And its not even winter yet! Not technically anyway.
I am counting down my days as I go on vacation, not to a warm place but vacation from work at least in 4 days! I can hardly wait. And I am not sure if this happens to you or not but when I don’t have to go to work is when my little eyes tend to open at the crack of dawn! Nothing drives me more crazy.
So who have been naughty and who has been nice? I truly believe I have been an excellent person this year, I may have sworn at a few people in my mind maybe 100 times…but that is for the whole year again! LMBO
I was helping my little monster who is in 4th grade with her history homework…I swear there was at least 10 pages of work to do! I was stressed out. I mean when do the teachers expect the kids to get enjoy their weekend with all that work? I know, I know its in the best interest of the child, but shoot I had to do the work along with her to make sure it was right. Painful…makes me thank God I am done with school. You know when I was going to school, I use to wish I was already working, so I would not have homework or have to get up early to go to school. Now I don’t have the homework, but I have to get up even earlier to go to work. So of course now I am patiently waiting for retirement which is years, years away!
In the meantime, how about we check out some food! Today I made Curry Duck. Oh it was good. It was like home in Trinidad, on the river, with a cook going on the banks! Yummy.
I also posted my Apricot Pepper Jelly Ham recipe from thanksgiving.
If you are in a cold state, bundle up and stay warm, if you are on an island somewhere warm…I don’t really want to talk to you right now 🙁
