14 Days of Christmas....

On the 14 days of xmas

my in-laws gave to me:

fourteen days of talking (times 12 hrs a day)

thirteen migraines (thank god for Goody's)

twelve new English words (Blimey, Crumbs)

eleven book ideas (1 I'm working on now :)

ten tons of dirty dishes (and about 4 dishwasher loads a day - sorry Lake Lanier)

nine jokes 'bout my cooking (1 was from my hubby but he won't do that again.)

eight requests for visits

seven tips for parenting

six trips to Target (This did not count the 2 xs to Michaels, 2 xs to Hancocks and grocery store visits)

the wrong gift receipts!

four loads of laundry

three bags of minstrels (English Chocolate - Yummy!)

two Harrod's coffees (Love love Love this!)

And, the perfect man just for me! (Yeah baby!!)

For the record, I love my inlaws but this was too funny to pass up. :)
