My oldest elected to get new clothes for Christmas this year. I never thought I would see that day. Only one little hang-up, he didn't want to get clothes from Tyler. So, off we went in search of malls in the main direction of Dallas. Mind you, we were searching for shopping malls, not shopping centers. Let the hilarity ensue...

We get to Terrell and used directions from Mr. Plantfreak to go to the mall. The outlet mall. That just won't do. So, off we go to Rockwall. They have to have a shopping mall, right? No. I had things to get at Michael's and asked a lady for suggestions. She was very nice and gave me completely off the wall directions. Even with two sets of eyes we never found the streets she said to use.

I had an idea to call Mr. Plantfreak. I didn't say it was a good idea though. He told me I was going in the wrong direction and to turn around. He would be wrong. Several strangers later, we made it to the mall and Cody was in skater clothes heaven.

As we were driving home- we ran into another shopping mall. Really, now we're just finding them by accident. It was 8 o'clock when we got home-we left at nine that morning. But hey, Cody is stylin' and that's all that matters.

Well, since it seems I'm only doing monthly posts...let me give you a rundown on all my doings.

Since November I have sold 59 dozen cookies (I've made way more). It just kind of snowballed and I love it when people have happy tummies.

Cody turned 16 this past Tuesday. It's killing me, I want that cute little toddler that loved getting hugs from Mommy and looked at everything with curiosity and wonder.

AJ turned 15 on Friday. We went out to eat and it was actually enjoyable!

I'm still scrambling to get presents in the mail, get outfits for our out of town trip, clean house, blah,blah,blah!

I worked at the paying job and let me tell you the crazies are out! I had a lady trying to read me bible verses on the phone (she called looking for a pomegranite tree).

I had two different people come in and want to buy pieces of a plant, not the whole thing, just a piece. That's called pinching and you do it when no one is looking. Jeesh.

But really, the cookies are what have done me in. Mark says I'm in the wrong business. Maybe I can open a bakery, hmmmm....

What A Crock!

It does absolutely NO good to get up at 6am and put a roast in the crockpot if you don't plug the #&^#*#!$#$& thing into the wall!!!!!! Hmmph!

Taco Bell anyone?
