Dear Murphy

Dear Murphy's Law,

Up Yours

Truly, it's the end of the year in which we have made less than we have in our entire marriage due to Hyrum going back to school. And I knew--just KNEW at the beginning of this year that if crap was going to go down--it would be this year.

So I said--Bring it on. But I didn't really mean it.

For reals--you started with the cars, and then continued with the cars and then are finishing it up with the cars. HMMM let me see if I can list them--A/C on the suburban, brakes on the burb, something else I can't remember on the burb, steering column on the Honda, New brakes, new clutch and then we rounded it out with a new CV boot. I get it our cars our old--but for real--that is ridiculous.

And now--The freaking Garbage disposal??? It's only 3 years old. Brand new when we put it in ourselves when we bought the house. IT's a dumb disposal. And I tried to thwart you--when it started leaking I just shoved an empty bowl under it and then emptied it daily. Screw you murphy. But you got me--the old use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without just isn't cutting it. I can't bypass it. It's not that you don't work--you grind like a charm. Meanwhile spitting brown slushy goo all over the cabinet underneath. You're a clever little jerk. And since you are connected to the drain I can't really do without you.

So off Hyrum goes to throw down a whopping $169.99. Yes disposals cost that much. Well, they do if you don't buy the crappy Badger brand that we had before. You suck.

Remember the other day when I accidentally blocked that crazy girl from getting onto the road--remember her kind gesture to me? The one she did for an extended period of time which made me wonder if her parents ever loved her?

Well--same to you pal.

Sincerely your most hateful victim,

I got a hankerin' for a new punch.

Does anyone have a good one they love?

Let me know.

Another Christmas list

Okay, along with the galoshes, keep your peepers out for this little "How to train your Dragon" getup. Supposedly it's at WalMart.

Call me if you find it.

Local Goods

Thought I'd pimp this for a friend of mine.

Go, love, buy.

My camera broke and so I forgot about what was on the memory card. Then I just uploaded some stuff and this was on it.

Is this as funny/freaking adorable to anyone else besides his parents?

On my list

In case you are from out of town and are wondering what to send someone in a different town (ahem) you could always send them THIS.

They may just love salt water taffy as much as I do.

Check out all of their yummy stuff HERE.

Santa's little helpers

Okey dokey, it's Christmas shopping time and I thought you all could help.

I want to get some galoshes for the girls. So if you see any on clearance or super cheap somewhere--e-mail me or call me. I need 10/11 sort of size. I need 2 pair.

Also probably some for Beck--so look out for those too.

And if anybody has some Barbie crap they are trying to get rid of . . . dresses, or a car or something I'd love to have it (in good condition of course). I plan on buying a barbie--but not any barbie crap--so if you are getting rid of some--let me know.
