That’s right. It’s January…wait…what the hell is the date?
Eh-hem…It’s January 28 of the year 2009. It has taken me 28 days to fully embrace, and then abandon, my new years resolutions. The bad news is that I will still be a chunky, grumpy drunk by the end of the year. The good news is that I now have more time to share my misery with all of you!
So as a late update on my holidays, because even though I know nobody gives a damn, they are my kids and they sat still for 3 photos so I am going to share them with the world! (In all fairness, the Baby was strapped into a stroller and confronted with a large animal so there was no way he was going to move).
I have to preface this little slideshow by saying that, in general I am opposed to putting animals on display in environments that aren’t natural to them and exposing them to imposing crowds of unsympathetic gawking crowds. But, for some reason, I still felt compelled to drag my kids to the straw littered linoleum floor of a local store to watch as the holiday creatures attempted to shield their eyes from the harsh flourescent lighting while enduring the excited screams of the human spawn.
Now this picture was taken at one of the most exciting moments of the entire reindeer display. While you’ll see my kids crouched down at the fence getting a good look, right up close and personal, you can’t see all the other kids that crowded around the periphery with their camera’s getting a REALLY good picture of the action! I may have to add this to the potty pics!
