|Yes, we're using paper plates - sue me|
This morning we opened presents. Now, I like to think we don't go overboard in this family when it comes to Christmas gifting: we just do candy in the stockings (plus Moose Munch under the tree), and Larry and I give each kid (or "kid") 3 items. But when you have 8 people in a family, and everyone is giving everyone else a present, well...do the math, okay?
|That's 8 x 7 plus 2 x 6, approximately|
If you hear that Amazon earnings went up this month, you can thank me.
[Apologies to my neighbor who owns the independent bookstore. Mostly not books, though...]
So, yeah, up until 2 AM, up again at 7, opened presents, cooked the French toast, threw the place mats in the dryer, bitched at the offspring to put the wrapping paper and recycling out back, ran the dishwasher (ALREADY), and made the kids take charge of the mashed potatoes. I'm taking a nap now, and NO ONE can stop me.
That's the theory, anyway...
