Is tomorrow Wednesday or Thursday? I can't remember that either. There is so much to do before Friday! Tomorrow the wife is taking the kids shopping for me! I'm very excited about this, though I didn't really ask for anything(well, a row machine and bike, a ring would be nice, some new shoes, new clothes, a puppy... just kidding!). I mean, I did ask for things, but I didn't, you know? I want ALL kinds of things. I don't need anything. So whatever the wifey wants to do is fine with me. There are things I want right now that don't come in a box. Like quiet time by the tree, with a glass of wine, and a little snow would be terrific!
While they do their shopping, I will go finish some things up for the wife, and for some friends' babies. Buying for babies and kids is my favorite thing! I'll then go get my eyebrows waxed, because I scared myself when I glanced in the mirror on my way out the door. I swear, I thought two furry salamanders had fallen on my face and attached themselves permanently. I joked about it the other night, saying I must have some man genes somewhere in my body to have such hairy freakin' brows. This was when my crazy mother was over with my step-dad, and the kids' dad. I guess they may have been a little uncomfortable with that comment, since I'm a lesbo. I mean, they were probably thinking "AHH, so you're the man in the relationship." Haven't you ever heard people say that, or ask that of others? My answer is always very honest... "There is no man in our relationship." "If I wanted a man, I would be with one!" I don't care if people ask that question. I guess it can be a bit confusing at times, especially when we're both so hot!
Dinner with my dysfunctional family was wonderfully uneventful. The ex ended up not bringing his woman-friend and her daughter. It wouldn't have bothered me, but my mother's schizophrenic mania would have been released, and I'm pretty sure that's why he ended up not bringing her. I mean, who wants to deal with all of that. No one I know. So, there it is... a pretty normal evening on the lake.

The next day (Monday), we went with some friends to the ICE exhibit at the Gaylord. I love this exhibit. We've been going each year for the last three years. We decided Dr. Seuss (the one that began our tradition, because the wife and I love Seuss), has been the best, but we've loved them all.
|The Girl at the ICE exhibit... this year's theme was Shrek|
|Puss in Boots|
|Donkey-I love him!|
|His nose is growing!|
|Look at that smile!|
|Our Christmas Hen|
|A baby Shrek-ona!|
|I love dragon!!|
|The girl says Happy Holidays!|
No pictures of the boy at ICE because he went way ahead of us with his friends. It's very cold inside the exhibit in order to keep the ice sculptures frozen, so they hand out big blue coats to everyone. I don't even want to think about how often those get washed.
Today, (Okay, I answered my earlier question... tomorrow is Wednesday), the wife and I went shopping! I love shopping!
|we discovered a new cupcake place|
|I love the shinies!!|
|Crate and Barrel shinies|
|On our way to our sushi place (which was not yet open) we saw this place. It's new. It's called|
"The Pretty Kitty-Brazilian Waxing" I got a kick out of the name!
Okay, I think I finally wrote myself tired. Hopefully this doesn't mean my post is so boring I can't even stay awake writing it.
Tomorrow's post "Poli*******tics, the Burst Bubble, No Gun, and No Bus Driving!" Eh, I hate the word "no." Seriously!
