Christmas 2010. In fact, the only picture from Christmas day.
As Kati so kindly pointed out tonight, I have not blogged for awhile.
I promise, there is good reason for this unusual behavior:
1. We have been in Idaho. Western Idaho. Without Internet or cable.
2. There is a dastardly cold snowstorm outside and I've been too snuggled up on the couch to let my arms out of this awesome down blanket to type up a post. But maybe I need a Snuggie?
3. I'm still upset about this whole Christmas business.
Let me tell you...
For Christmas, Kyle and I make each other lists of things we would like. You know, to make the life of a shopping spouse that much easier. My list consisted of approximately 87 articles of goodness including, but not limited too: super cute clothing and boots, perfume, juicer, jewelry display, ikea decor, etcetera, etcetera. Seriously, I made it SO easy for him to pick out some stuff. It's all about variety, I say.
Kyle's list looked a bit like this: blu-ray this, blu-ray that, blu-ray something, blu-ray blah blah, blu-ray, blu-ray, blu-ray, Boise State slippers.
So I spent a month or two looking for all these blu-rays he had his heart set on (if you don't know my husband, then you don't know he is a collector of cinema. he currently desires to replace all his favorite action dvds with their blu-ray counterparts) I found two. And then in a desperate search for at least one more, I found Mission Impossible: 3 at WalMart just days before Christmas. Success!! I remember feeling so triumphant as I found 3 of the hard to find blu-rays of wonder.
Enter Christmas Day: We open all our presents full of joy and Christmas cheer. Shortly after, Kyle points out that the Mission Impossible: 3 "blu-ray" I was so excited to find is actually a dvd. Crap.
AND THEN just yesterday I discover his secret plans to return another of the actual blu-rays I got him!! Why?? Because he already bought it. I would be mad at him, but now I actually do remember him telling me a month or so ago to take that one off his list because he found it for a good deal and bought it anyway...
All my efforts traveling from store to store searching for the blu-rays ended up in a 1 in 3 success. 33%. That, is an F.
You guys, I got an F in Christmas!
Lucky for me, Kyle is a good sport and just laughs it off. Afterall, he does love his new Boise State slippers.
