On Christmas morning, while over at my sister’s house for breakfast and present opening, my husband turned to me and said, “Before you open this present, make sure you tell me so I can get the video camera.” I wasn’t quite sure what that meant, but I made sure he knew when I was ready.

As I opened the present, I wondered just what treasure could be inside that he would need to videotape the opening. Just then I looked down and saw her peeking up from inside the box. With the camera trained on my face, I looked up and shouted, “ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!??” I grabbed the book and stood up to throw it into the lit fireplace while everyone in the room shouted, “NO, NO, NO!!” while laughing hysterically.

My husband then said, “Okay, here’s the deal: You get to destroy it any way you want as long as you let me videotape it and put it on YouTube.”

So, here’s my deal: I am going to open it up to all you nice people. Leave a comment below with suggestions about how I should destroy Sarah Palin. The most interesting idea wins a truly Alaskan prize, sent from me to you. I’ll take pictures of the destruction and post them here, as well as the link to the video.

This is my present to all of you for the loyalty and humor you’ve shown me this past year. You’ve made it sane, wonderful and bearable.

Thanks everyone, and do your worst!

A few ideas to get you started:

In the recycle pile

I saw this today and it made me smile:


I never thought to call her a douchebag, but now that’s my favorite pet name for her. Happy New Year, everyone!

I know, I know. I’ve been gone a long time. Here’s what I’ve been up to the past…what? Nearly four weeks??:

My best friend’s dog died after having him shipped in from the bush to go to the emergency veterinarian’s.

Busily Christmas shopping, online and in stores.

Practicing patience one day at a time while my 2-year-old figures out how far she can push me.

Reading The Hour I First Believed and Couch.

Impatiently waiting for my Nook to arrive. It was supposed to ship out on Monday but still no word from B & N.

Buying our first “real” Christmas tree. That means that it is more than 2 feet tall. (It is fake but gorgeous!)

Following Palin’s Excellent Adventure across the country (or should I call it The Trail of Tears?).

Cooking for 8 hours (in 2 4-hour shifts) for Thanksgiving. Man, my back hurt after that one.

Helping with the 2nd H1N1 clinic at my school. The preschoolers remembered what happened last time and THEY DID NOT LIKE IT.

Here are a few things that I haven’t been doing:
1. Exercising
2. Sending Christmas cards
3. Cleaning
4. Sleeping in (when, oh when will she sleep past 7 am?)
5. Blogging (I guess you figured that one out by now)

So, now you’re all caught up. Now I need to get my act together and finish preparing for Christmas. Happy Holidays everyone!
