Weekly Wrap Up 12.23.12

Only two more days of shopping and I'm thrilled to say I AM DONE! Lucky for me Gomer and Adolpha wanted more expensive gifts this year, so that meant less shopping. I also (knock on wood) haven't lost any gifts this year like I usually do. I came up with this amazing plan where I'd put them ALL in the same place instead of just shoving them willy-nilly into any crevice, hole and closet I could find. I even baked a little bit this year (whaaa?). It's strange. I really feel like I have a handle on the whole Christmas thing this year, so I'm sure I'll wake up at dawn on Christmas morning and realize that I've forgotten to buy my dad a gift or something stupid like that. Just to be sure, I'll go to the bank this morning and get some cash - everyone always likes to receive cash, right?

Book Update:

I shipped out a bunch of books this week. I hope many of you asked your husbands and boyfriends for copies, because a lot of them are ordering them for their "wives" and "girlfriends." There isn't any time now to get the book before Christmas, but I think it would make a lovely Valentine's Day gift for that special someone in your life, so hurry and order now to guarantee shipping in time.  

On a serious note, thanks to everyone who bought the book this year. I'm thrilled so many of you read it and enjoyed it. (Have you left me a review yet? I need those suckers.) Seeing my book on the Amazon best seller's lists was the best Christmas present I could ask for. 

Favorite Comments (and My Replies if Necessary):

Holy hilarious. Was in the toddler gym this morning and there was a sign hanging up from last night's kiddo bday party: "Happy birthday, Neel!" Snorted some coffee out right then and there, and then kicked myself that I didn't have my phone with me so I could take and send you a pic. Was dying to etch in the silent "k" as suggested by another one of your readers... on Humble Brag Letter 2012

By my calculations, you have 16 minutes left. What in hell are you doing wasting them reading my comment? Go do something useful. Eat more Oreos. on The Mayans

OMG, that totally cracked me up. I was kinda bummed the world didn't end. I was looking forward to not going to work. on The Mayans

Just found your blog from pinterest and thought this site cant be real.This is hilarious, since I've been reading more and more mom blogs I am beginning to realise that real moms still exist in the US. Hope I'm brave enough one day to say what I really want to in my blogs. on Over Achieving Elf on the Shelf Mommies

That is fantastic! Merry Mosesmas! ;) on Wait. Who is the Reason for the Season?

That reminds me of a joke I heard once. A Sunday school teacher was asking the class about Jesus and said that his mother was Mary but who was Mary's husband? One little boy raised his hand and excitedly said "Verge!" When the confused teacher asked him to clarify he said "duh, Verge -n- Mary!" :-) on Wait. Who is the Reason for the Season?

A few years ago, I worked with a man from Japan. He asked me what Easter was. I am Jewish, so I tried to sum up Easter considering I didn't really have first hand knowledge. Anyway, I said "Jesus was crucified and 3 days later, rose from the dead and went to Heaven." He thought about that for a minute, and said "Oh...like a zombie?" Of course all of us who were standing there thought this was hilarious, and I was sincerely hoping he'd bring that back to Japan with him, when he went home. on Wait. Who is the Reason for the Season?

My husband asked me the other day, "Why don't they have Christmas on Saturdays? Why does it always have to be on December 25th." I looked at him for a long 5 seconds and then turned around and walked away. I couldn't make words form that didn't include dumb ass, moron, and are you fucking kidding me. on Wait. Who is the Reason for the Season?

OK, the Hubs just asked me yesterday: "Will Christmas be on the 25th again this year?"  Really, Hubs? I shouldn't be surprised since this is the same man who also asked me, "Do they make yoga pants for men? I think those would be comfy." 

Oh, poor John Mayer! Quick, someone call the WHAAAAmbulance! on John Mayer

The elf is already here in the UK - my friend was busy explaining all the things she was planning to do with him (her? (it?)) such as make flour snow angels, remove the tree decorations ... I'm too nice to burst her bubble by telling her about your Over Achieving Elf On The Shelf Mommies post ... YET!!! Thank Moses that my children are way too old for such things!

Merry Mosesmas!
