You made it! Here it is... the blog where you get to sit back and laugh at - or be completely horrified by - life with 5 kids, 2 parents, some frogs, a cat & a rabbit (and those are just the creatures we know about).


Tuesday's Tip (#28)

Here's a tip for you:

Spread the Christmas cheer.

Especially on some random day in January. Do something unexpected. Like bring a Christmas tree to work. Under your car.

This morning, I was rushing to work for an early meeting. On my way, I came to an intersection where the sun was in my eyes and the glare on my windshield was making it impossible to see straight ahead. Luckily, I was taking a left. I checked to make sure there were no cars coming from either direction and took my left. I felt a little bump like I might have hit a small pothole or something, but nothing seemed out of the ordinary. Then, I noticed a sound coming from under the car. I pulled over and walked around the car, but didn't see anything. I bent down and took a quick peek under the car. That's when I saw a small Christmas tree lodged underneath. 

At this point, I didn't even have time to get down on all fours and address my new Christmas decorating issue. So, I jumped back in the car and hoped the tree would conveniently dislodge itself along the way. It did not. 

Eventually, I made it to work. I had one panicked moment along the way when my car started to smell like Christmas and I fervently hoped I hadn't ignited the tree. When I got to my parking lot, I got down on my hands & knees and pulled out my tiny tree. Wasn't that nice of me to decorate the employee parking lot on this lovely January day?

Merry Christmas, bitches.

Luckily, it was a tiny tree. Maybe even a Hanukkah bush.
