Since I missed the first night... Happy Hanukkah everyone!

My friend Edie invited me to a menorah lighting at the temple she goes to last night. It was so beautiful. The rabbi gave a great sermon. And they had latkes!

The rabbi even sang a local spiff on the Adam Sandler song... too adorable!

When I got home DH asked me if they had a good rabbit. I can't remember why but when Dad passed away we started referring to the rabbi as the rabbit and now all rabbis are rabbits to DH.

I really love him. He's funny! (Meaning DH, although the rabbit they had at the service was pretty funny too).

DH even said, "Oh it's appropriately a rust colored t-shirt." I said well they call it maroon on the site, so I guess they didn't think of that.

He's so funny.

Is that his side of it or is there another oxide?

That shirt made me wish I was one of those small-breasted, teeny women who look all cute and hot in t-shirts. I look like a sock monkey in t-shirts, alas. Crew necks are not flattering if the Good Lord blessed you with six more chins than you actually need to get through life. One of these days if we have the money I am seriously going in and getting the chin situation remedied. I'd like to lose weight for health reasons but wanting a visible neck is pure vanity. I wish I were a more spiritual person and didn't care but I guess I'm not.

AAGGGHHHH DH called and the motor he pulled from very cheap rolled wreck he got at the auction and dropped in our friend's a-x car just blew up.

Friend's having it towed to the shop. Guess I'll go stamp for a bit... still have some Christmas cards to finish snicking, I mean sponging.

Wrose, please tell DS that V isn't the only one thinking of him!

I only wear t-shirts to the gym. BUT - once I have my surgery, I plan to wear them again!

When I showed DS the shirt, he said, "too bad they don't actually do that." Picky picky picky. He said, not only would the 8 molecules not attract each other, they'd repel each other.

It's like Testosterone City over here. There are 8 boys, ages 14 to 9, in my living room. But when one more 11 year old gets here, the 14 year old will be retreating to his bedroom.

As E would say, shoot me now.

OK, so I was posting on the old thread:

So let's see....

I got the note cards packed up to ship to France (the sets I had made from my photos of Monet's Garden).

I just have to seal the mailing envelopes and head to the post office Monday. Am sending a set to Christiane, and her sister who hosted us in Burgundy, and her other sister. Also a set to Buffalo Mary.

And I got my Christmas letter written. But not printed.

I suppose sometime this weekend, I should head downstairs and count up how many cards and tags I can scrounge together to mail out.

Usually I have everything ready to go the weekend after Thanksgiving

I'm not in the mood for mass production....I'm even half toying with just sending the people on my "B" list a letter and the heck with a card or tag.

Still no swaps in Wheaton. It's been over a week's difference in receiving them.

I think Taylor either had the wrong address or they didn't a;ll get mailed in the same batch, maybe?

I haven't received my swaps yet, and I don't think Rainsong has gotten hers either.

eta: Don't worry, it's NOT an anti-Illinois thing.

I'm extremely not happy tonight.

Hurt my back pulling carpet up in my room. Took forever to drag it down the stairs...it sucked.

Anyway, I find out that my sister is taking Boy, the girl he took to Homecoming, Girl, and herself to see Tangled tonight. I was like What? We can't afford that...4 people $7 admission plus snacks and they didn't eat supper so....anyway it gets brought up that I can afford to go out drinking.

Um, I drank 2 $1 beers and my friend bought them. She has stopped at the store every single night...we have a couple of bags of Hershey kisses, other candy, Christmas decorations. Um, hello, we are BROKE!! Seriously, do you understand that? She DOES NOT get it.

I was going to get the Christmas tree this weekend. That money is gone. So I tell Mom I have a 4 foot artificial tree that I can put up and Girl was all upset becaue they always had a real tree.

I'm so angry....I mean geez, I gave up lunches most of the time, I eat only a yogurt usually for breakfast because if I have cereal, I have to get soy milk, I don't know what else I'm supposed to give up. Meanwhile we have a new bottle of vitamins every 2 weeks, frozen breakfast sandwiches, blah blah blah.

I don't know what to do.

I'm sorry, I guess I'm just feeling sorry for myself tonight.

You've got to find a way to make it sink in.

YOU shouldn't be giving things up. Damn your sister is an idiot!!!!!

Make sure EVERYONE knows what you are doing. The yogurt, the reasons, everything. You all need some more transparency there. Or we'll be all up there with wood mounted background stamps.

Carol, does your sister have any income source at all?

Child support for the kids?

Carol, is there a way to separate your income and groceries from your sister's? Maybe that would help make her understand that she needs to make wiser choices with spending her money.

She gets $600 a month child support and all our money goes into one account.

I don't know...my BIL had the same problem with her.
