I have been blogging for over three years and I find it so interesting that life/the internet will often present the very things that are occurring right here in my own house.
I went shopping, Christmas shopping and when I came home, Jack asked me if I had remembered the first rule of Christmas. I stopped for a moment surrounded by shopping bags and said, "Why, yes, I had. The rule works................ the first Christmas present is for me!"
Very quickly, Jack recounted the real first rule of Christmas........... Buy nothing from your Christmas wish list. Oops! I gulped and he said that I was indeed naughty. So, in all innocence, I asked him to define naughty. He said in his rough, low voice, to come to him and we were going to work on the definition. We worked all right............. right over the bed for an RA to make sure I truly understood what the definition of naughty was.
Later, I vented about how busy the stores were, how the traffic in and out of the mall was chaotic, how expensive things were that were bought and on and on.
Then that wise man simply took me to bed. No more chatter, no more venting........ just a sore bottom and some great loving.
So the part I find funny is that both of these photos came in way before I had gone shopping, made purchases, vented or asked for definitions. They were right there waiting for me to use to highlight what happened.
