Holy crap. It’s December.

Where did 2011 go???

This creates A LOT of problems for me. Not only is it nearly Christmas, for which I am completely unprepared, but it is nearly New Year’s Day, for which I am equally unprepared.

This means resolutions, people! Not only do I need to *make* resolutions, but I need to *commit* to resolutions, and, frankly, I just don’t see that happening.

I mean, really – I am supposed to change my life just because it’s January? Well, maybe. January is my birthday month, too. So not only do I get the opportunity to reflect on the year that has passed and speculate on the year ahead – but I get to do it *TWICE* thanks to my birthday.


Let me just tell you this right now: there will be no Christmas cards from me this year. That would take a freaking Christmas miracle at this point. I don’t have a problem with Christmas cards – I *love* showing off my girls and sending good wishes to family and friends. But a picture of my girls is just not going to happen. The other day during the Razorback game I tried to get a picture of them in their shirts and this was the best picture:

Lovely. I know.
Tis the season. 
Don’t even get me started on the creepy little Elf on the Shelf.
