Toss the Life Preserver

Don't mind me, the auto inflatable PFD vest I'm wearing under my apron is merely a safety precaution.  I feel like I'm starting to drown...okay, sinking a little.  I have so much to do. Still.  And. I need to beat the weather to get it all done. 

I don't anticipate any fire alarms, but just in case, I have my fire extinguisher close at hand.  The whistle is clinched between my teeth in case I need to summons the emergency response team--aka sleeping till noon teenagers.

I think I will catch my breath when everyone gathers around the dining room table Christmas Eve for a feast of holiday cheer. While they will be thinking meat, I'll be thinking something stiff on the rocks.

Or. Say. This.

Santa Hat Martini
1 part Malibu Rum

3 parts cranberry juice
grenadine for extra red color
dip rim of martini glass in powdered sugar/water solution
then roll glass in coconut
add mini candy cane to glass

You'll be fine, Jodi. Just keep swimming as Dori says. :) But in the midst of it all, be sure to enjoy!

Merry Christmas, pally.

Lin- I think once I get my darn suitcase packed, up to school, check the luggage of 200 plus kids and loaded on the truck I will feel better. Until then I be swimming the backstroke.

We'll discuss the weather later...say on Thursday.

EEEEEK!! Well, just be sure you wear cute panties and bra (not your holy, grungy ones) in case you DO sink! When they pull you up, you're gonna want to look HOT!

Nellie- I have packed all my pretty panties for Pasadena. All I have left is my spanks. Imagine cutting those puppies off to save my life...the medic will have a black eye when my belly full of jelly is released from the spandex.
