OK, so before I get into the post I will answer a question I got SEVENTEEN times today. 17, hookers.
Sara, why the fuck are you still mailing Christmas cards? Are you really 80 years old and wearing a diaper??
No, lambwhore. I'm not 80 and I don't wear a diaper, but I am a proud Christmas card sender. Why? Because I feel like society as a whole are lazy, inconsiderate, impatient, and ungrateful. That's just a fact. And I feel like if you can't even get your shit together to send Christmas cards to a few people once a year you are a selfish asshole. That's right. I'm most likely calling you a selfish asshole.
Sure, it costs a lot in stamps. Sure, I make it harder on myself because I hand make mine. And then I spend a whopping 20 minutes typing up a little brochure and inserting pictures to share with you all what we did this year, how awesome my kids are, and some highlights you probably missed. I can't afford to buy a gift for everyone but the fact you get a card from me? Feel special. Seriously. I limit my list to 100 of my nearest and dearest, and if you bitch about it hardcore, I'll send you one too.
All year long all we get in the mail are bills, magazines we don't remember subscribing to, and shit that doesn't even belong to us but if you have a drunken mail person like I do, you get it anyways. Is it going to kill you to send a Christmas card and maybe make someone's day?
Every year I get less and less cards and that's bullshit. I hate how lazy people are. And don't give me your stupid ecard shit. That's like sending me a Facebook message and that is bullshit. I also feel like photo cards are just a bare minimum because literally no effort goes into that. No personal note, nothing. Lame as shit.
So I signed up for a Christmas swap over at Linny's Vault and YAY. I get the best swap people EVER over there. Seriously. I'm a lucky lady. This time I got Tamara and she is like the Texan version of me. Quite frankly, I don't know how this country can handle two of us. We could run for office and we'd get shit done. I forgot to take a picture of what I sent her but she got a pretty kick ass package. Plus, I ate some of it and then had to replace it. *burp*
But here's what I got!
But it's Christmas and my house is ready. We put our tree up the day after Thanksgiving and as tradition, we watch The Grinch Who Stole Christmas because I love that movie.
But I'm set for Christmas. I have everything done present wise, I just need to go grocery shopping for food. I'm pretty damned excited- my kids are at a super fun age where they still have Santa alive in their hearts and eagerly wait to see where our Elf on the Shelf will be the next day and are counting down the days until Santa visits.
Tomorrow I'll post my recipe for Ghetto Easy, Fucking Delicious Truffles and maybe my Caramel Sauce recipe. Both delicious, both awesome, both make good gifts for your neighbors. Because you know I give gifts to the neighbors.
