Tick off Tuesday and Randoms all rolled into one.

- Rude people tick me off

- The public in general pisses me off

- Fruitcake (is that one word or two? whatever. I don't care) it ticks me off.

- I hate the fact that during the Christmas season you will encounter the rudest people you have all year.

- I hate insurance and dealing with insurance companies.

- I dislike pumping gas. I am always scared my car is going to explode.

- I get very angry that I can NEVER find scissors when I need them.

- It ticks me off when you work really hard for something and are let down by your group of friends. Thank goodness for other friends that take their spot.

- Biggest tick off of today... we took the girls to get their teeth cleaned today. We decided to use a pediatric dentist because we knew that Emma's black tooth would need special treatment. We just didn't realize how special the treatment would be. After cleaning her teeth and doing xrays, the Dr. told us that Emma's black front tooth is abscessed. What's even better? The other front tooth right beside it is abscessed too. Fabulous. The Dr. warned us that with a fall, more than likely more than one tooth would be damaged. Guess what? It just so happened to be BOTH of Bug's FRONT teeth. Ugh! She is having them pulled next Wednesday. I am so nervous about it I could throw up. Keep us in your prayers. Poor thing will probably miss her Christmas program which is next Thursday. :-(

- It ticks me off that I have no wine glasses. Yep. You heard me. I have NO wine glasses. I have plastic wine cups from Pier One. Classy, I know.

- Now for randoms... Do y'all have any cute ideas for teacher gifts? I think I am just going to do gift cards but you know me. I'm always looking for something cute and over the top.


- Jack the Elf is making his rounds. Santa sent Caroline and Bug a message via Portable North Pole. It's CHRISTMAS!

- I have a long list. One thing on it though is Ree Drummond's cookbook, The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl. If you don't read Ree's blog, you are missing out. I puffy heart her!

- I dislike eggnog but those eggnog candles smell fabulous!

- Our Christmas tree is just perfect this year. Pictures to come.

- I am off to finish midnight edits then it's to bed I will go.

I can't believe you would even think of giving the teachers a gift card, as creative as you are :) what about the 'thank you' gifts you had for us, just put their initials on them? pair that with some other things, like maybe an eggnog candle for one, and you've got yourself a creative gift! I know you will come up with something & I can't wait to hear all about it!! BUNCO was fabulous last week, I was happy to be there!

I've seen movie tubs, with a personalize bowl with their initial, popcorn, soda, candy and a gift cert for a movie rental place? Then again, I always end up doing gift cards.

Sorry about Emma's teeth. That doesn't sound fun at all.

Sorry to hear about Emma. I had some extra teeth (I know, random right?) when I was little that I had to have pulled. She'll be ok. I'm sure it will be much harder on you than her ;-)

I'm getting Ree's cookbook for Christmas too! I puffy heart her too.

And as for the scissors, my grandma used to have this scissor holder on her wall that said "I keep my scissors in this rack, if you use them please put them back!" And she was SERIOUS about that thing!

Rude people are the worst! ANYTIME of the year!
Insurance makes me want to gauge my eyes out and we have really good insurance. I can't imagine how the rest of the world must feel!
I'm so sorry for Emma :( that is terrible! I hope she gets through it okay. You and her will be in my prayers!
I hope you get your camera for Christmas :)

Your hard work pays off always. True friends will always figure out a way to be there when you need them. I'm praying for you about Bug's teeth. My grandma used to always tell me "Worrying is a sin." Who knows if it is or not but I like to think it is. Therefore, give your problems to God-- He is WAY bigger than those little things that stress us out! I hate insurance companies and rude people. Insurance is such a waste. I don't even know why we have it. They don't pay crap. Plastic wine cups are ok. They get the job done. Teacher's gifts? I'm the room mom so I got mine a really cute Christmas chips and salsa platter which is also a cake stand at Sam's. I also got them hand-painted calendars for the fridge. Good Luck!
