This was no doubt the longest month of the year. The hotel industry in Natchitoches is not the place you want to work if you desire sanity.
There is the Christmas Festival which causes us to sell out months in advance, graduations, reunions, everyone and Aunt Carol wanting to come see the lights.
Crazy Train. Not to mention, 5 employees quit this month, so that's a record.
I honestly didn't take a lot of pictures, so the ones that I stole......thanks.
Charades was a time....I tried to coach them with scenarios about movies.
They drew Star Wars, so I suggested a light saber fight and then someone slink down like when Ben Kanobi was killed. It worked, until they kept swatting "him" with the light sabers and every one was yelling, "The Color Purple!" "Roots!", I was like "NO ONE IS GETTING WHIPPED!"
The next movie was Dirty Dancing. They said they got it.
They straight up did the scene from Risky Business.
The next movie was Titanic. I said "okay, someone get behind another person, put your arm around her, and let her stretch her arms out".
Literally the most iconic scene from the movie.
What did they do?
Our church had it's yearly Christmas Program. I could have done without Scott's commentary in my ear, LOL.
For about half a day, there was a slurry of ice/snow on the ground.
After one particularly hectic day at work I came home, through my laptop bag on the floor, and didn't touch it until my way out the door the next morning. After being at work 2 hours or so, I go to get my binder out of the bag. THE binder. My entire life, personal and work, is in this binder. It was soaked. I lost many important papers, but most importantly......
A Diet Mtn. Dew can had exploded I am guessing when I threw the bag down and sprayed everything in the bag. Poor Kindle here was at the bottom of the bag and drowned for over 12 hours No amount of rice could help it.
I did get another one, bigger and brighter, but I felt bad. We have logged so many hours together.
On Facebook I made the comment "Goodbye my old friend, I am sorry I let you drown", with this picture.
A week later, this was a conversation I had with an unnamed coworker.
Her: Good morning
Her: Who died?
Her: Your friend?
Her: What you put on Facebook...your friend that drowned.
Me: OMG, you mean my Kindle?
Her: I don't know the picture didn't load.
Me: You thought I would let someone drown and then post it on Facebook?
Her: I don't know, you be weird sometimes.
My Black Friday purchase has arrived!
Everything was so much better than I anticipated! The color was perfect, it was larger, softer, and way more comfier than I thought it being so cheap would be.
Thank you Wayfair!
I have changed the pillows up 3 times in one week. Who knows what the final outcome will be.
I attempted to make sausage balls for the first time. They were very tasty, however the recipe insisted that I use a mixer instead of hands to combine everything. Well poop yeah!!!!
It was a no.......
I have no doubt that I am the most hated house on my route.
If I thought for one second that I could fit into this, I'd be all over it like white on rice.
Just keeping the romance alive in our marriage.
Callie, being rude at my mother's house. She is not a fan of their new dog Molly.
Can't take her anywhere......
At work, had to take a picture of my favorite guys!
Our Night Auditor is better than your Night Auditor:
Stolen pre-Christmas pics of Lily:
After we opened present and ate I went to work.
None of us took an obligatory Christmas group picture or posted a picture of food.
We fail as Americans.
Lula, who I ditched at my mother's house after she peed on my iPod and it caught on fire, is slowly making her way inside my mother's house. I warned them; she will pee on everything you love.
You know that yo live in Louisiana when you have an alligator pulling Santa in a boat..
Scott turned the big 4-3.
We were both off, but can't say we did much. He played his new video games on his loudass surround sound system he bought, and I meal planned for next week. We met my mother and Bailey for dinner, and pigged out, then bought groceries. If that doesn't scream a good time, then I don't know what to tell ya.
And again, we took zero pictures.
I snapped this one while he was putting together a quilt rack in his old man bath robe.
We rang in the New Year by watching hockey and Carnival Eats.
Here we are piled on my new couch (yay!) in my old lady nightgown.
Here's to 2018, may it not be a dumpster fire.
I enjoy sports, binge watching TV, food, reading, and slightly bearded men.
