Write about something that is: red and white.
Just three more sleeps until Christmas. Starting to feel somewhat ready for the big day.
Work was pretty quiet today. Had a stack of business license renewal payments in the mail, but otherwise there wasn't a whole lot to do. Hopefully it'll pick up just a little bit tomorrow, but I don't expect it to since the payments aren't due until the end of January.
Today was Kat's brother's birthday, so we went up to their parents house to have a dinner in his honor. It was a surprisingly civilized affair with four kids there. While we were eating, anyway. Before and after, however, was quite a different story.
I was very surprised I was able to get Max to sleep as quickly as I did once we got home. I'll just leave it at that.
"Would you like a candy cane, little girl?"
"Oh. Yes, please!"
"That's better. Here you go."
"Thank you! Mmm... blech! This isn't a candy cane!"
"Sure it is! And I should know - I made it myself!"
"With what, dog butt?"
"That is just rude!"
"Oh, sorry. With what, dog butt, please?"
"Actually, if you must know, it's my very own special recipe. It has cinnamon, peppermint, water..."
"Oh, there's no sugar. That stuff is bad f-"
"Mommy! This strange man is trying to ruin Christmas!"
