It has been brought to my attention that my last post may have been a tad on the negative side. I'm not a negative person (I don't think); I was simply trying to be honest. I'm better now. Going Christmas shopping does wonders to lift the spirits. Especially when it's sneaky. What other time of the year are you totally justified in lying? Honestly? (ha ha! No pun intended).
See, I take an Institute Class. (For any non-LDS friends reading, that means that I take a Scripture Study College Course) every Thursday night. It's my night off. And I love it.
At the community college where it's offered, classes ended for the semester last Thursday, but I didn't tell anyone in my family. So yesterday, when I was busy getting dinner ready, and The Hubby came in and said, "You better hurry and eat or you're going to be late for your class," A light went off over my head. In my mind I thought, "Oh, I forgot to tell you that my class is over for the semester." But the words that came out of my mouth were, "oh yeah, I'm always rushing to get out the door on time. Thanks."
I ate quickly.
I even took my scriptures with me.
But I went to the mall and did some Christmas shopping--making spirits bright. Pretty sure I was laughing all the way, too. See, I am in the Christmas spirit.
I made sure to come home at the right time, too, and no one was the wiser here.
Since The Hubby doesn't read my blog, if he finds out it will be because one of you told him.
So don't be a snitch. Santa's watching. He's making his list and checking it twice. Deck your halls, Jingle you bells. Jump in bed, cover up your head. Settle your brains for a long winter's nap. Do whatever, just don't be a snitch.
