Today Perry took 6 kids to work, and I took the other 4 to WalMart. I know I said that there’s a basket to hold Santa hats next to the front door, but the truth is they usually get left in the car. Since Perry had a total of 7 passengers, he took the van to work and left the car for me. This time, we got the Santa hats.
Uh oh. Do you see what I see?
Somebody is NOT wearing a Santa hat. That’s a clear violation of stated regulations.
See? Even Calvin wears one.
I thought we were going grocery shopping, but when we got to the store I realized that out of over a dozen items on my list, only 2 were food. The rest were Christmas lights, more Santa hats, gloves, tape, etc. A list like this seemed appropriate since we wore our Santa hats into the store.
Oh, and weatherstripping. I bought three kinds of weatherstripping, hoping that I could seal up one or more of three very leaky exterior doors, cuz baby, it’s COLD outside and not expected to warm up for several days at least. The good news: the first door I fixed no longer leaks when it’s closed all the way. The bad news: it no longer locks, and barely closes all the way. At least there’s less cold air coming from that direction. Now we need to figure out what to do about the others.
By the way, where do you set your thermostat? We try to keep ours at the recommended 68 degrees during the winter, but people keep turning it up. They think they’re being sneaky, but I can usually identify them by their shorts and bare feet. But 68 does feel cold to us; are we just spoiled southerners, or do a lot of people keep theirs higher?
Speaking of cold, here’s my favorite version of my favorite Christmas pop-song. I love Christmas hymns, but this song is a little different. I love this version because the couple is married, and the chemistry when they flirt is so very real. They’re adorable!
Do you have a favorite Christmas song? Hymn or otherwise?
