Hi there! Visiting from BPOTW. Love your blog; you're quite the Scribbler! Listen, I'm up for a Pretty Neat blogging award, and I made the final cut. Yup, I'm campaigning for votes...please come by and check it out if you have a chance!

Stop sharing my brain! We just did a 12 days of Christmas thing at work and I was going to post it tonight but now I will have to wait. Still gonna look like I copied ;-(

Jayne said...

Very clever! And the D*mn House gifts are much more practical than the lords a-leaping and drummers drumming and all that! :)

Why S? said...

I'm just worried that all those bricks and all that mortar will either crash Santa's sleigh or keep it grounded. Just don't let him land on your roof, whatever you do!

NV said...

kspin -- Thanks!

V -- I doubt it. D*mn house! :-)

Melissa -- Thanks! Right back atcha. Came by. Checked it out. You got my vote!

MG -- Sorry, MEF. I'm sure yours is quite different. But, great minds just think alike, no?

Jayne -- Yup. I have my little indulgences, but all in all, I'm one of those practical folks. (Real exciting type.)

Why -- OMG! Hadn't thought of that. Yikes. The roof is only two years old. I seriously don't want to go there again anytime soon.

Ann said...

LMAO -- LOVE it!!!

krissy said...

You have been busy! Cute post!

Visiting from BPOTW...

So funny ... though 7 cans of caulk is nowhere near enough. For some reason, we literally have 25 or so all for various uses or in various states of "we dont' know if they are still good yet"

NV said...

Ann -- Thanks! For all the pains in the butt the work is, it makes for great parody.

Krissy -- We sure have! 2008 may be one for the record books. Thanks!

Jenners -- That's hilarious, because the same thing goes on around here. And the seven cans? Those are just the NEW, UNOPENED ones. :-)
