’tis our season

Everything came out OK with Peyton.

I’m crazy relived.

Insanely relieved.

My parents are on their way here for the holidays.

There’s presents to wrap.

Cleaning to do.

Groceries to buy.

Clothes to wash.

OMG. Because of the plague, we stripped all the beds and got all new toothbrushes and now there is LAUNDRY.

Laundry for miles.

Laundry that would make baby Jesus cry.

So I am taking a few days off around the holidays.

If you’re smart, you won’t want to read me anyway.

I’ll be hiding.

From the laundry fairy.



**watch out for that Laundry Fairy, she’s a real b**ch!

    I’m still waiting for my Mayhew Christmas card. It must have gotten lost in the mail.

    (My card to you probably did, too ;) )

    Y’all look great!! Hope your Christmas was a great one. Christmas in FL for my family was not bad, if I do say so myself:) Hope to meet up with you again one day if you move back here while I’m still here. If not, you can just stalk me and move to TX:) Ha-ha! Merry Christmas! Sincerely, your stalker from FL:) P/S: Is it still weird to call myself that? I should use my name shouldn’t I? Oh well for now:) P/S/S: I’ll do what I can to help you out (regarding the bed) soon!

    Wow. So I just discovered your blog today thanks to bloggess who posted a link … and I’m embarrassed to say this but I have thoroughly stalked you. It’s 2 am here, and I found your blog at around 11 pm… I’m sleepy but I just can’t stop reading. You are a phenomenal woman, and I can tell by all of your comments that I’m not the only one who thinks that. I hope you and your family have a wonderful christmas, you deserve only the best. Keep inspiring people with your life, you’re truly amazing. I also live around Atlanta, I hope you won’t hesitate to ask if you need any help (I have babysat before… and the kids are still alive. ha ha)…

    Oh laundry that would make baby Jesus cry made me snort laugh. And then your Christmas card made me tear up. What a crazy year and how glad I am to see this card. Merry Christmas Mayhew family.

    Merry Christmas Anissa. I hope you and your family enjoy your holiday together.

    And remember.

    A family that folds together, molds together.

    That could be taken in a gross way, but let’s go with the nice “bonding” kind mold and not the green fuzzy fungal kind of mold.

    I knew I should have just shut up and said Merry Christmas.

    Man that laundry fairy is, she needs to come to my house next. I would gladly put up with her if didn’t have to do laundry.

      I’m warning you, she watches infomercials, listens to Liberace, and eats lots of cabbage.
