This morning as I tried out my brand new eye makeup (that is pretty awesome) before taking my boys to school, I had a little conversation in my head. Don't worry, this is totally normal... for me. It went like this:
"Oh Wesley, your school calendar says you get to make jingle bell necklaces today - how fun!"
Hmm... that reminds me, I keep forgetting to get those Christmas stickers his teachers asked for. They said the earlier the better so I definitely need to get that done before the last day of school.
... and I should take care of teacher gifts too -- putting those off to the last minute is no good.
Just as long as I don't turn those stickers in on the last day before vacation starts and look like a slacker. I'll just take them when Wes goes back to preschool on Thursday... I'll still have a week of school left then, right? When does vacation start, anyway?
That was me, realizing that I suck a whole bunch and somehow this is the last week of school before Christmas here. Oops. (Full disclosure: snap was not really the 4-letter word I said in my head.)
Ahem. Time to get crackin' on those teacher gifts, y'all.
My super prepared master plan called for homemade sugar scrub + hand cream + little Barnes & Noble gift card. It was time for action! I ran around like a mini-maniac this morning, gathering supplies, then turned my kitchen into a disaster area all afternoon. Just another day in the life, y'all.
