Anders just asked me if he should take more off the top of the tree or the bottom. My preference is to bang a hole in the ceiling, but he's not going for that option.

Both lightbulbs in the computer room ceiling light have now blown and I'm using my decades-old touch-typing skills to write this in the dark. Impressed, aren'tcha?

Yesterday's agenda of finish cleaning, host birthday party for Martin with 12 kids, make appetizer, attend AWC party, bathe children, put up Christmas tree got knocked off base by fatigue after article 4. Bathing and tree are, therefore, on tonight's agenda.

I probably should be thinking about getting the AWC website update started or it's going to kick my ass during vacation week.

I wish we'd moved faster on the puppy thing so that we could have given the kids a bundle of love for Christmas...reebert! We want a puppy!! :D

We're thinking maybe late February is better to go see johann_metzger because it's when the kids have school break.

I may never be able to refer to my brother by anything other than his LJ name again.

The work Lucia humiliation performance went reasonably well. No pictures will be forthcoming. Who WAS that chubby gingerbread man with the poodle on his head?

Anders wired the Christmas tree lights to the living room lightswitch! I love that man o' mine!

How on earth did he do that?! Clever man :)

Beats me! He's an electrical engineer, though, so he's supposed to be able to do stuff like this with one hand tied behind his back! :D

Ah, okay... that's fine then ... :)

Wired the tree lights to the wall switch!?!
What a man!

I know! :D

Lets hear it for competent men!!!! Yippee!!!!

Oh, and for the women who inspire (a.k.a. nag....LOL) them to be competent. Double Yippee!!!

Hey, you did more than I did this past weekend. It made me tired just reading your list. You go girl....:D

P.S. You have good taste in music!!!

Good for him :)would he give a few pointers to my husband?

My husband has every Christmas light rigged on timmers :o Clas Ohlson is to blame. They go on a 6am turn off at 8:30am back on at 2:30pm until 11 at night.

We have timers for most of the advent lights and the hanging stars in the kitchen windows, too. I love timers! :)

Puppies!! Yay!! hahaha I'll be sure to let you know when we have furballs to spare. :)

I don't suppose you have any more specific info on an ETA? :)

I want a puppy too. What's AWC?

American Women's Club :)

Yay! I vote for the kids to get a puppy for Christmas! And thanks for the link - she is so brilliant!

LOL! Unfortunately, we got started a little too late to get the puppy for Christmas, I was just wishing we had moved faster. :)

You could have dognapped that cute little furball that came to visit for Thanksgiving. She seemed in love with Anders and Karin was a little trooper at walking her.

Except that I know who comes WITH Lambi :D

Now don't talk about L-G like that! He is housetrained after all....

Way to go, Anders -- it would be so handy to have the tree lights turn on and off with the light switch!

What am I missing about the puppy? Does Marie have some on the way?

She's hoping to breed one (or both?) of her dogs in the spring. If the puppy is black, we definitely want to be considered as adoptive parents for it! :)

Does Anders also do boat wiring? If so, we have a list of jobs for him next time he's here :)

Lars-Göran has been great setting up the lighting for me and making it really easy to switch them on in one hit. That Swedish efficiency is great sometimes (other times it drives me nuts).

I hope those poor deprived kids get their puppy soon. I think it would be wonderful for all of the family.

And why are there no picturs of your Lucia performance? Something to hide?

That link is great - I'm cracking up here (and not just because I'm insane)

There were pictures but they SUCK. Therefore, you stay deprived.
