On the 1st Day of Christmas…

…Hubby gave to me:

One pack of TicTacs.

A weird anti-climactic finish to the 12 Days, but… fun, nonetheless. This morning, as I was gearing up to brave the Christmas Eve shopping crowds (because Pumpkin thought it would be fun to wander off with my bite plate – and I clench my jaw when I sleep… badly… I had to go without it last night, and my mouth hurt so bad this morning, I decided I had to get a replaceemnt FAST – never mind that I had to buy a $20 over the counter version, versus my oh-so-fantabulous overpriced from-the-dentist version), I had yet to receive my “gift”. It’s the last day, I was antsy, so I hinted… Okay, I came right out and said, “So, it’s the first day of Christmas.”


Came back from the store.


Later, I said to Hubby, “I am just so excited, I can’t help it. I can’t wait to see what comes next.” Hubby went to get the gift and said, “Well, I guess I should have gotten something interesting, then.”

I don’t mind that it’s TicTacs – I love TicTacs. But my impatience drove Hubby bonkers, I think. He is already saying he’s not sure if he wants to do this again next year. Pout.
