You need to dress the part...yes, that's a Mickey Mouse Apron.
And you need to CONCENTRATE...
Last night it was Project Hubby Hubs. He made the cookies while I tested each batch... 2 per batch to be exact. They were to DIE for! But in good hubby fashion, he dissed his own cookies for not being perfect because he accidentally used milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet. ::cue the coo-coo birds now::
Today I braved the Southern Cali storm and did some last minute Christmas shopping... OH MAH GOSH... CRAZINESS. The raindrops turned into rainbombs and the shopping lines were insane IN the membrane.
I had to remember what my daily devotional told me today: "Be a woman of serenity."
I turned to Him today and I prayed for the rain to cease and the maniacs around me to stop driving like freaks. Instead of being an impatient and frazzled shopper, I enjoyed the Christmas music playing overhead and giggled as I watched a frantic Husband tear through the racks looking for a decent gift for his wife.
I also sat for 5 minutes...ok make that 2 minutes (I have a REALLY short attention span....SQUIRREL!) and watched the raindrops streak my window.
I enjoyed a plate of cookies and pooh mug of almond milk before dinner. I enjoyed today.
I ate 6.... Hubs made them to small... blame him.
How do you stay "calm and serene" during this hectic time?
p.s- Hubsters saw this on Urban Dictionary and thought of me.... so true.
The time period during which a guy is actually engaged in the shopping experience. This period can last from almost no time at all to literally hours for a metrosexual, and includes all forms of shopping, from the grocery store to designer boutiques. It should also be noted that this period can be increased through witty girl techniques such as handing a guy a blackberry loaded with brickbreaker to play or sitting him in front of a couch with sportscenter.
"Dude, I am totally down to go try on a few pairs of jeans right now, but I am letting you know that my shopping window is only about 45 minutes today.
