Doesn’t it seem like Christmas is like the Kentucky Derby. Days of building up. Pomp. Circumstance. Pageantry. Celebration. Decorations. Then wham. We are out of the gate. And it is a fast pace. Then the race is over.
On a side note. I hinted to my wife I would love to have my car washed and waxed as a Christmas present. So she got me some car wash soap, wax, and some general car care cleaning stuff. Next year I need to be a bit more specific.
Second side note. We got the kids a foosball table for Christmas. The materials and istructions for stuff like this is getting worse and worse each year. Some of the pieces were broke and we had to re-assemble them. The instructions are pretty much useless. Quality is no longer job one at much of the manufacturing houses. I am afraid the bottom line is more important now than quality. That’s too bad.
Third side note. COCONUT CREAM PIE!!!! OH YES!!!
