First post this month, I think. Could be wrong. Its funny how much lj time I DONT get since I have kids. But I digress.
AMY! I got the camera. Thank you!! It will come very much in handy. If I have the time between now and the time I fly, I will get kids pics up. Probably not and you will have to wait a little bit. But soon enough :) I also got some homemade babylegs from Miah. Theyre cute and I owe a pic. Soon enough. I promise.
That being said, I am losing this computer the day I get back from Hawaii. I will be without until probably January. This does not make me happy, but it's not my computer so I have no say. I might have minimal usage during that time, but nothing is for sure. Im just glad we should come into the money hopefully next month. And if not, we still have our tax return. Although it's getting so close to us moving, it may go all there. I have NO idea. Right now theyre saying they want his paperwork sent out this month, but with him taking a week and a half of leave tonight, I dont know if it's going to happen.
I have SO MUCH to do. I havent started packing. Im so nervous right now. I was a wreck at Walmart last night making sure these guys had food for not even a week. Keith keeps teasing me because Im freaking out. I can't help it though, its just my nature. I will have fun though, I know. My parents want me to decide what we do during the day on Wed and Thur, but I don't know yet. I know we have a potluck with some Zootopes on Thursday, we're visiting Pearl Harbor on Friday, and then the cruise and some concert everyone keeps talking about. My parents have already made it out there I just have a good friend's baby shower tomorrow night so I didnt want to leave until after her shower.
And now, a time filler. A xmas survey...
1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
Egg nog, but only the homemade kind I make. You know, a bottle of whiskey (mmm whiskey), a bottle of rum (mmm, rum), cream, and enough raw eggs to kill someone. Its good stuff. Hot chocolate I have all the time, even in the summer.
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just set them under the tree?
