That's it...I've finally reached my breaking point.  I made a sign to hang above my doorbell, begging people to PLEASE stop soliciting and making religious queries.  I don't need a new vacuum.  I don't need laundry detergent.  I don't need magazine subscriptions, a time-share, cleaning services, or an energy audit.  I don't need a new hot water heater, a new provider for our cable, or meat.  (Seriously, who buys meat out of a U-Haul truck?)  We believe in God and don't need to study the doctrines of Jehovah's Witnesses and/or The Church of Latter Day Saints during the day while trying to work from home...or, after being on hold on the phone for an eternity, finally being exulted to the eagerly-anticipated status of being able to talk to a real-live person.  Ugh!  Enough is enough!!

Of course, we'll gladly support all school fundraisers...especially those involving candy, cookies, and popcorn!  We love to support schools...and our cravings for munchies!!

14 Crazy Days

The holidays are over and the Christmas decorations are all neatly packed away for another year.  It's been a busy, crazy couple of weeks...full of pinball, yummy food, games, movies, shopping, photos, fun and laughs.  We're looking forward to lots more fun and laughs in 2013!

Our new record: three Christmases in one day!

Cyrus is always eager to help unwrap presents.

Cyrus's Christmas Breakfast: bacon, eggs, pineapple, and monkey bread.

After unwrapping many presents and enjoying a yummy breakfast, Cy was ready for a nap.

'Cards Against Humanity' Game: $25
Dinner out on New Year's Eve with good friends: $50
Having our friend try to take our picture with the camera set on continuous-shoot mode: PRICELESS!

Yum! This may be my new favorite drink (judging by the finished bottle on the second night).
 It really does taste just like red velvet cake!

This one tastes like whipped cream. It's good, but I like the Red Velvet better.
Matt made me a birthday cake: white cake with cotton candy frosting and cherry-flavored hearts that tell my true age. ;-)

Happy birthday to me:  birthday mimosas for breakfast!

And another drink for breakfast. We were just trying to finish up the leftover champagne from New Year's Eve...and we did!
