What an appropriate matchy title for today, don't ya think? (PS-If you don't think so, I don't care.)
The day started out well enough. School, then to a brunch for the governing board of our spouses club. At the brunch we did a dirty santa exchange. You have never seen anything so sad. I swear. A beautiful ornament came out of a bag and everyone ooed and ahhed. Then, of course, it was stolen. The person that brought the gift wanted to really rub it in to the original picker so he said, "And I got that at Hobby Lobby. In the STATES." You would have thought we all died and went to heaven. I thought people might cry. We got SO excited about a gift from the states. I mean, you think my boots from Paris are cool, but us, we like crap from Hobby Lobby.
(As a side note, I MUST be a 4 stars wife. MUST. We went to their house for the brunch. Her house is completely furnished of course, but not only that- it is decorated. For every holiday. Oh, and she has staff. For her. 2 AF Sergeants entire job is to work at her house. They made all the food, served drinks, and cleaned up. Um, hello, sign me up for THAT!)
After leaving the party and heading back to school, I was flagged down as I was going out the gate. I think nothing of it as they do random checks all the time. Oh no. Not for me. I'm getting a ticket. I was going 30 MPH in a 20 MPH zone. Whoa Speed Racer! I do think she enjoyed giving the ticket to an officer spouse. Grouchy lesi girl. Whatever.
Then, it was time for Christmas program rehearsal at school. FOR AN HOUR AND 45 MINUTES. Shoot me in the face. My kids were good, mind you, but that's a LOT of Christmas songs. Ugh. And they wonder why I talk about drinking under my desk. ;)
Be sure to come back tomorrow for a Google search update. It's a doozy!
