Yesterday I almost hit a turkey on my way to work. I literally had to slow down and wait for it to cross the street in front of me, which provided some disturbing insight as to what a "real" turkey looks like. Ewwww! They are ug-ly! ...and slow. Maybe they aren't all slow, but this one was, it seemed to be limping, I am unsure if that's just how turkeys walk or if perhaps this particular one had some sort of medical impairment. In any event, the whole experience made me second guess my Christmas dinner menu.
Last week Avery asked me why I (being white) gave birth to brown kids - how could that happen? I explained that since I'm "Light" and Daddy is "Dark Brown", that we would have "Light Brown" kids. He looked at me seriously, let out a little "huh" and said, "So that's funny; that it matters what the dad is".
Amelle came to work with me on Monday, we had a great time together, she busied herself for four hours by stamping blank pieces of paper "CONFIDENTIAL" and sealing them up in envelopes.
Earlier this week Amelle asked me if Santa's reindeer were going to visit with our reindeer (the deer that live behind our house).
Jermaine gave the kids snowmobile rides in the grass yesterday. The grass that was an obsession this past summer has now been sacraficed to the new obsession.
This morning I woke up, knew I had to get out of the house at 7:30 to get to an off-site meeting at 9am. I got in the shower, got dressed and was ready to go at seven (so I thought). When I looked more closely at my watch, it was actually six o'clock!! AHHHGG!!
Only 4 more days until Christmas - I can't wait!!!!!
