Tuesday Hodge Podge

My middle child refuses to sing Christmas carols, not even the funny ones like Grandma Got Run Over by A Reindeer. I told him that I was going to have to use the North Pole Hotline to call Santa. My threat did not garner the reaction I had hoped for. He simply glanced at me with a look that said, "Bring it, sucka."

Well, I told him that Santa said refusal to sing Christmas carols is not severe enough a penalty for a stay on the naughty list, but it did earn him a spot on the "People of special interest" list. Santa is watching, dude.

Last night we all cozied up on the couch and watched a movie called Silent Night. It based on a true story, and well worth the spot on your Netflix cue. The boys enjoyed it and commented on the fact that it was a war movie with no cursing or gore which prompted me to seriously reconsider cancelling cable.


Kevin and I watched two episodes of Hoarders. I am not proud of this, but I have come away with some information that you might want to put in the 'con' column if you are considering becoming a hoarder.

1) Animal poo. 'Nuff said

2) Of the 4 people featured in the 2 episodes, 3 of them were missing their top front teeth. It begged the question, Did they lose them in the hoard? I can't say what for sure, but something about hoarding does not sit well with secondary dentition.


Lastly, I can't stop eating. Something about the cold that makes me ravenous. Anyone else putting on their winter layer?

I knew there was a term for it, "winter layer" - I like that much better than "beefed up". Happy New Year!
