Celebrating Women for the Real World

Tickle Tuesday…….and other stuff

It’s not Monday; and it’s not Humpday; so it must be Tickle Tuesday.  Tickle Tuesday is our attempt to lighten your load and make your week a little brighter.

A Christmas Story for people having a bad day:

When four of Santa’s elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys as fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the Pre-Christmas pressure.
Then Mrs Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed Santa even more.

When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out, Heaven knows where.

Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered.

Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum.. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drank all the cider and hidden the liquor. In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found the mice had eaten all the straw off the end of the broom.

Just then the doorbell rang, and irritated Santa marched to the door, yanked it open, and there stood a little angel with a great big Christmas tree.

The angel said very cheerfully, ‘Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn’t this a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?’

…and so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.



The Other Stuff……………

Did y’all hear?  We had a little snow in Houston.  Nobody knows what to do with themselves when we get it.  Unfortunately, I was home, in bed, sick.  I vaguely remember phone conversations with people that day but I did go back and check my texted messages and this is what I saw.

I think this would make for a really fast snowball fight.

All I could think of when I saw this picture is my mom yelling to me outside when I was a kid saying “Don’t eat the yellow snow!”

When G2 got home he scraped the snow off of my hood and made his first snowman!

He keeps reminding me how deprived he is….

Have a great Tuesday!

    Sigh. All we got was ice. And no “ice day.”
