Monday NoFun Day

Posted on Dec 22, 2014

Hooooboy. Holidays are hard. While I am happy for the break, I really miss the routine. And the prizes, of course. Not that I’ve won much this year, but it’s sure fun to play! Alas, these next 2 weeks are going to be slow, but we’re all probably too busy to take much notice…

For sure the Santa Song on Zed is still happening, and Matty B is sitting in for Cruby. This should be fun – he’s not used to such early mornings. It’ll be nice to wake up to Matty B though (I’m sure his boyfriend feels the same way!) 😀 Not once have I gotten even a ring for the Santa Song, but I will still try. *sigh*

Breakfast Television has an amazing prize today – a Samsung Note 4 and gear, worth $1200! Imagine how cool THAT would be under the tree!!

That $100 from Future Shop would be fab too. I’d buy five $10 iTunes cards and give them to the people in our hood – the mailman, the garbage man, the recycling truck driver, and 2 by the door for deliveries. Then I’d buy some small gifts for random people that I appreciate even though they are strangers – like the house on Dunbar that has the toy train set up in their front yard! My kids LOVE stopping there and pushing the button, watching the train (with a different theme for each season) go around the big track. So fun! And then there’s the guy at the local Dairy Queen who always lets my son go behind the counter to put the sprinkles on his own ice cream cone. And the lady at the corner store who is always SUPER kind to my kids when I send them in with their Loonie on Wednesdays. And the women at Shoppers who know my kids by their names and go out of their way to be friendly to them. These people need to know how they make my year easier, and reinforce the lessons I try to teach my kids (like being kind to strangers, community spirit, etc.)

On another note, I can’t wait till Christmas! It’s just around the corner. I have an eeeeeevil plan this year, and my husband thinks I’m a real shit. But I think it’s hilarious, and our kids will end up in therapy no matter WHAT we do, so let’s have some fun with it! ;D

And also, be careful when you mix Drambui with your rum and eggnog – it’ll kick your ass without you noticing! Er… so I’ve heard… 😉

I’ve taken all the usual stuff out of the schedule and only left in the stuff I’m SURE will happen. Even though the Waking Crew is away, I left in the Secret Word stuff because usually the replacements still play it (though sometimes they do it AFTER 6am).
