Tom’s Birthday was Saturday and Roo’s is on Thursday, so with Merle’s Birthday coming up in several weeks and Christmas being around the corner we are now entering our really expensive time of year. Birthday’s are generally low-key here and we are taking the girls to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them to celebrate Roo’s. This has been her plan since she heard it came out close to her birthday. It will be Merle’s first time at a theatre because it wasn’t until recently that I knew I could trust her not to act out while there, so everyone is really excited to be able to go see it together.

Merle woke up today with no voice which freaked her out. Somewhere in the last 24 hours she came down with a head cold (which I hope she doesn’t share with the rest of us). That combined with cold, miserable weather today prompted us to put up the tree. We were listening to Christmas music on Spotify when the Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas song came on and she almost lost her shit. Then I remembered that they have an entire Christmas album, which I’m not sure how I forgot since she is an Alvin fanatic. So we listened to it on repeat all afternoon. Let’s hope the tree lasts its first night with Severus the cat who so far has basically ignored it but he becomes wild at night. I realized tonight that I also can’t wrap and leave the presents under the tree yet because the cat eats and rips paper and will help the kids unwrap their presents early or at least give them a sneak peek 😉 I need to get one of those huge Santa sacks that I can wrap and place them in until Christmas eve because I am not wrapping them all that night. I have done that the past several years and it totally sucks even when you bring a bottle of wine in to the room with you. Drunk wrapping while watching Netflix = a slightly better time.

Last week while Roo was taking a robotics class Merle and I did our usual mall walking/window shopping thing and I tried on some imitation leather pants at H&M that were only $24.99. I took a dressing room picture that I posted to Instagram stories and my mom Facebook group asking yay or nay? Opinions were a unanimous yes from them so I went back the next day to pick them up. I have looked for a pair for a while, and actually owned a pair a while back but they were borderline too snug. These are high-waist and not too long on my short legs which is nice for once, and for $24.99 I couldn’t beat that price. I’m not willing to fork out several hundred dollars for a real leather pair since these actually look like leather and fit really well. My only complaint is that you need to size up, but that is fairly common with H&M pants.

Do you wait until Christmas Eve to wrap your presents?

  1. Best wishes on fast recovery for Merle and for everyone else staying healthy.

    Please let us know how those faux leather pants work for you. I love the look but only have visions of the Ross on Friends leather pants debacle in my head. Meanwhile, I bought a H&M lace up sweater in medium, and it’s HUGE. Since I bought it on sale ($14.99) I’m debating whether to bother returning it or to donate it. I’m bummed. Their sizing is totally screwed up.

    • Omg that was one of the funniest Friends episodes. That one and the “Pivot!” one.

      The pants are actually really good. They need to be sized up and I agree their sizing is inconsistent. They just opened the H&M online shopping in Canada and I was super excited until I remembered that I need to try everyhting on there first :/ The pants are high waist and actually skim my ankle properly. The waist is elastic so there isn’t any issues doing them up. I’m going to try to get a picture of me wearing them this week.

      Merle passed the sickness to Roo and it’s her birthday tomorrow. Im just thankful that it isn’t a full blown head cold, no fever or coughing. It’s like, 2 days sore throat, and a couple of days stuffy nose.
