Merry Christmas to you all...
I can imagine talking to Santa Clause right now and him asking me what I would like for Christmas. I honestly don't know what I would tell him but if I was being self-indulgent, I might ask for a Wii for Christmas. And Santa's next question would be, "Have you been a good little blogger?" I would hang my head and with a pouting face say "No Santa, I have not". And then Santa would laugh like a bowlful of jelly in his red suit, his big black belt, his white beard, his nose like a cherry, and with a voice like the Soup Nazi would say, "No Wii for You!!!"
Sarah and I have had an eventful past few days and worthy of a blog...
Tuesday night Sarah and I met at the mall after work to eat dinner together. She wanted to do some Christmas shopping and I was headed over to Christ Community to see Jeremy Cowart do a presentation about his life as a photographer. Jeremy did a GREAT job. On my way home, it was raining like cats and dogs and I called Sarah who had been home for a few minutes. You never want to hear a person on the other end of the phone say "Honey, I don't want you to get stressed out but..."
The back half of the conjunction "but" made me drive a whole lot faster trying not to hydroplane on my way home. So, again it was raining hard and had been for two days. I think they said that some areas got 6 inches. I walked in the front door and Sarah was wiping the water off of the hardwood floors and trying to grab pots and pans to collect the water coming from the first floor ceiling. Because of the amount of water, we ended up placing the big containers that held our Christmas decorations to catch it. For the next hour we were walking around the house like Sherlock Holmes and Nancy Drew trying to figure out if it was the roof leaking or if it was the plumbing.
So the last few days have been spent watching a whole get cut in our ceiling by a plumber so he could get to the water line that fed one of the toilets upstairs. And as I am writing this morning, this is my view as I look up from my computer screen. The guy in the pictures is Francisco and he is fixing our drywall. Thank You Francisco!!!
It snowed last night here and also because of the white drywall dust, it's beginning to look a LOT like Christmas.
Hope you guys have a Merry Christmas.
Santa, is this post enough for a Wii?...and maybe Tiger Woods '09?
