7 Quick Takes

I finished a Christmas gift this morning.

I finished this a few weeks ago. Can you guess what it is? Is it a Batty Bat?

Nope, it's a cute little hat!

Unfortunately, everytime I've put it on him, it's made his eczema flare up. :( Maybe his skin will clear up by next winter, and he can wear it then. There's certainly enough room for growth.


It's a snow day today. I love being married to a teacher. We're supposed to go carolling downtown tonight, but if things don't clear up, well, I wouldn't complain if we got to have a night at home.


Rose had her very first Christmas program last night.

Her class did great! They recited a little piece about Mary and Joseph looking for a place to stay, and then they sang a song about Santa.


Some geek jokes:

How can you tell that a mathematician is an extrovert? When he talks to you, he looks at your shoes and not his own.

A neutron walks into a bar and asks the bartender, “How much for a martini?” The bartender says, “For you? No charge.”

If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the precipitate.


I've been feeling very nostalgic lately. I don't know if it's the season, or if it's because I've reconnected with some good friends on Facebook that I never thought I'd be able to find again, but I've been thinking a lot about how I used to be, how my life was, and how my life has turned out. It's a strange sensation, not unpleasant, but strange.


I always seem to forget in December that there's another month and more activities to follow after the holidays. In the past it hasn't been such a big deal. But Rose's birthday is on January 3, and having the family over is something that I don't like to throw together at the last minute. Somehow this year I have to start getting ready for that sooner.

FB is a blessing and a curse

I'm so glad we reconnected tho!

Thanks for sharing your quick takes! I'm a science geek (or was in a former life) turned stay at home mom, so the jokes made me laugh. I got them all right away. Is that bad?

Cheers from Nebraska!

yes my head is trying to bypass Christmas and is already organising Neo's 5th Birthday party for the 18th Jan, hopefully around 25 of his friends in a local hall(booked) and an entertainer (booked)to keep the kids busy, cake (ordered!) all I have to do is make more lists, do some food invites, and decorate the hall on the day! Neo has been talking about HIS party since Septemeber, bless!

I'm not focusing on Christmas. It's done tomorrow as far as we are concerned. I'll have to blog about the cool gifts Mark's mom made for the boys.

That hat rulz.

Thanks to you, I'm going to be singing the "Batty-Bat" song all night--and I didn't even have to listen to the clip, LOL.
