Quick Takes Friday, Vol. 12


--- 1 ---
Still getting the last of our Christmas prep done. Note to self and everyone else who travels for the holidays: no breakable gifts. It's hard enough wrapping gifts to travel well. Worrying about one breaking is a nightmare.

What do you get when you combine a Charlie Brown-esque tree, a toddler, and a six year old tree decorator? This:

You can't really tell in this photo, but the ornaments stop about three feet from the ground, and there aren't any glass ornaments at all.

I need a new series to watch on Netflix. My favorites are House, Sherlock, Monk, Doctor Who, and Endgame (Hulu). I tolerate Elementary, but since it's a new series I only get it one episode at a time. I've watched every episode of them that are available multiple times, so I need something new.

I really wish Chris's ISD would have called school off today. I've been thinking about keeping Finn home. With all the end of the world stuff and idiots who think calling in threats after the horrific events of last Friday I'm a little on edge about what craziness might happen. I worry more about the school where Chris teaches, though, and unless they cancel, he has to go in.

I kept Finn home today. They had their Christmas party yesterday, it's a half day (dumb, according to him, because no music or PE), and they're not having a spelling test. Besides, it's 29 degrees, so too cold to walk, esp. with his cough, and I didn't want to have to get up extra early to drive Chris to work. It has nothing to do with end of the world nutjob paranoia.

Hilarious.

blahblah. Sorry. I got nothing. Oh, wait, I probably won't post again until after Christmas, so have a safe and happy Christmas.
