COUNTDOWN
New computer to play with, and MAN, is it fast! Flat screen, and the very sleekest of cool scanner/photo printers as well. Anders spent most of the day hooking everything up after removing the old computer which is now the kid's...and the kid's old one is soon to be put on the block to see if we can sell it, along with a printer and a flat-bed scanner.

I took the kids to the mall this afternoon, and holy christmasmadness, were there a lot of people out shopping! We managed, despite the crowds, to find the "Christmas" outfits we were looking for, and Karin now has a nice pair of black velvet pants and 2 fancy sweaters to wear for the holidays, while Martin will be styling in white shirt or blue turtleneck with black corduroys. There were no Christmas sweaters or shirts to be found at all, something I really miss from the States.

I also knocked 2 more presents off the shopping list and now have only 1 more, plus some stocking stuffers, so am pretty happy about the general state of affairs. The last few cards have been written and addressed and are waiting to be mailed tomorrow, even though I know they will all most likely be late. Oh well!

Anders has asked me for my Christmas list, and I had such a hard time putting one together. Isn't that ridiculous?? I refuse to put any things for the house on it, and honestly, besides books, movies and CDs, I have a really hard time thinking of things. Especially stocking stuffer ideas! hmmmm...

Upcoming this week: final shopping, Martin's dentist appointment, massive cookie baking, final nutri-coach call, and Narnia with girlfriends. Then it's into the actual family and holiday celebrations during the weekend, 3 days in a row....

Wonderful, Warm Birthday Wishes to ravengirl!

i braved the total christmas chaos at burlöv center yesterday afternoon, just because i wanted to buy the 2006 fireman calendar from the local fire brigade! mmmm... :-) there wasn't one free parking space in the whole parking lot. i had to park across the street on an industrial lot. it was a mess.

i hope you're going to post a family photo with the kids all dressed up!

There were no free spots at Nova Lund either, and they had a brigade of people directing traffic! I didn't see where they were getting directed to, as I pulled up and parked on the side, just outside of a row, totally illegal, and right next to a door. Score!

Re: no stocking stuffer ideas?!??

*snort* HAR! I forgot about that. *scribbles it on the list and giggles madly*

Re: no stocking stuffer ideas?!??

Hehehe -- I love that icon. Karin cracks me up. ;-)

thank you, sugar-girl!
*mwa*

OOO, new computer envy! My external harddrive started producing bad melty-plastic smells over the weekend, so I'm only using the internal drive at present, and boy, does it ever feel tiny -- mewantnewshiny!

We've managed to avoid the mall completely, this year, for which I am supremely grateful. I go by the largest mall in the state, when I go over to my parents' place, and gridlock is standard on the exit ramp and overpass leading to the entrance; I'm always thankful that I can just cruise on by.

Re: your List, what about craft supplies?

Hmmm...I thought about that, but I have had so little time for crafting this year, and I have such a huge stockpile of supplies to begin with, it didn't seem suitable.

I have the hardest time thinking of gifts, as well, but for you I think - a gift certificate to a spa for a lovely massage, lots of smell good lotions and creams, but really, books are best...but no way, no poinsetta drain stopper...
