Things for which I am not (in the slightest) ready

1. Hosting book club tonight.*

2. It goes without saying, but if I don't say it then this will just be a blank page: Christmas. My score is: Presents 4 (of, I don't know, 40?), Cards 0, Wrapping 0, Decorating 0, Cooking/Baking HA HA HA.

3. Winter. Who is hoarding all the girls' size 6 snowpants? I have dragged two kids to three stores already (that means past all the ridiculously huge displays of TOYS TOYS TOYS) trying to find some. Please God don't make me go to Wal-Hell. I might come out with something inflatable for my front lawn by mistake.

4. [screeek! Sharp turn toward the sentimental!] A 5-year-old girl who, during a stage production of High School Musical, alternately stood in front of her seat shaking her booty ... and cuddled up to me with her thumb in her mouth.

*Actually, scratch that. I have read the book, and I have four bottles of wine and a box of brownie mix. I'm good.

Wine AND brownies, what more does one really need?

One day at a time. You're ready for tonight, and the rest will come. :)

Anyway, you've got the important stuff (#4) covered.

Whatever you do, do NOT drink and then go to Wal-Hell. ;)

Good luck! Booze and sweets are all you really need to get a party started.

Hope book club was lots of fun! I would come just for the brownies.

Our neighbors haven't put up their inflatables yet. I'm sure it won't be long though.

Wine and brownies make every one of our book clubs fabulous!

Our neighbors' inflatables have done faceplants on their front lawn. It makes me giggle each time I drive past. That's my version of Christmas cheer.

I love the thought of her booty shaking! (In a motherly way, mind you, not any other way, 'k?)
