It’s Not a Sham, It’s a Sham WOW!

January 5, 2010

It’s been a whirlwind couple of weeks, let me tell you.  We drove, we visited, and we ate a ton.  I cooked, I baked and I wrapped.  We got sick.  We got better.  We drove and ate and visited some more and opened a lot of presents.

We got some great stuff.  As for the list of trailer wants (in addition to the grill I mentioned in the last post) we got our screen house.  Thank you very much Auntie Caroline, Uncle Neil and Lilly.  I’m looking forward to using it.  We gave them a tent, so they can start to join us on our little excursions.

I have an amendment to the list, though.  I forgot all about the Sham Wow.  I’ve wanted one for ages.  I’ve imitated Vince and his Sham Wow commercials ad infinitum; to the point that I received 6 of them for Christmas this year.  So, consider the Sham Wow added to the list and ticky boxed off.  I’ve got Sham Wow’s comin’ out the wazoo and I don’t have a clue what I’m going to do with them, but I’m sure I can spare a couple for the trailer.

The decorations are packed up and we’re back to the grind.  We rang in the new year and the new decade and it’s time to focus on the resolutions that will keep us going until the holiday roll around next year.  Personally, I’ve eaten so much in the past month, I shouldn’t have to eat again until March.  Maybe some exercise is in order.


All I Want For Christmas

December 25, 2009

It’s Christmas at last!  I wanted to take a moment to wish everyone out there in the blogosphere a very merry Christmas or a happy holiday of the persuasion of your choice.  Personally I choose to celebrate Christmas because it’s fun and convenient.  You may celebrate, or not celebrate anything you like.  It doesn’t bother me one way or the other.

If anyone’s still looking for a last-minute gift for me and my trailer you’re too late but here is my wish list anyway.

I wanted a campfire grill but not anymore, thanks to an early presy from Ian and Shannon.  Thank you very much!

I’d still love a screen room.  I’ve decided that I prefer the screen room option over the add-a-room.  An add-a-room would cost too much, I can’t let you spend that on me.  A screen room can also provide more flexibility on awkward campsites.

We are still camping without an engraved wooden welcome sign informing passersby of our family name, origin and hobbies.  This is an oversite that I would like to have remedied.

Tin Man

I also desperately need a tin man decoration.  If you’re not familiar with them, they are little painted figures that hang outside the trailer and are made, entirely, out of empty cans and recycled junk and sometimes have a funnel hat.  They are adorable and sell at the Peterborough farmer’s market for $15.  If I don’t get one for Christmas you can get me one for Mother’s Day.

So there’s my list.  I’ll let you know how I make out.  In the mean time, enjoy the holidays and make fabulous plans for the New Year.
