5 Days of Bah Humbug!

Today I assembled 12 corporate gift baskets filled with coffee, tea, cocoa, cappuccino, apple cider mulling spice mix and 24 loaves of individually-wrapped pineapple macadamia nut bread, cranberry bread, apple streusel bread, and banana walnut bread.

All made from scratch. Got 6 more to do tomorrow.

Already made 31 gift bags for Hubby's business associates, which he took to the office today.

I assembled 38 gift bags with cards for Little Guy's teachers and friends and people who've helped him through the years since this is his last year in high school. The gift inside was something specially made that arrived today and is really really cool----I'll tell you about it after the holidays.

I'm just too damned pooped to blog. I'll catch up with you guys tomorrow.

And you know what? That colored cellophane wrapping stuff smells funny.

On the eighth day of humbug, Santa left for me

Too tired to be blogging,
7 steaming bowls of stupid,
Hubby's buttocks blasting,
5 Chin hairs,
4 exploding Snapples,
3 open tubs of frosting,
2 dead pens,
and a lump of coal for under my tree

Holy crap. It took me two days (well, ten hours) to clean my house and put up the decorations, and you don't see ME posting, do you?

You? Are seriously a rock star.

Star said...

You are quite the elf. I am enjoying, and relating to, your 12 days of Christmas posts.

Mr. Fabulous said...

Holy crap! You could totally kick Martha Stewart's ass!

And someone really should, by the way.

You mean you didn't make rock-hard fruit cake with those gag-inducing candied fruit piecey thingies?! You're such a good girl. ;)

Ashley's Mom said...

WOW! I bow down before the Queen of Christmas! You are amazing, and just for the record, I want one of your gift bags :) YUMMM!

Jennifer said...

That's awesome! I've made the following this week in small batches for my dh's stocking;

peppermint bark
peppermint marshmallows
chocolate covered marshmallow stir sticks

If it goes over well I may make it in a grander scaler next year for him to take to work for his co-workers.

Brenda said...

Wow! I'm in awe of your talent.

Scarlett Demon said...

Crikey, can I borrow you next year?! I was just feeling pleased with myself for having managed to make 12 mince pies, but now.....

Where on earth do you find the time/energy?! I'll have some of whatever you're on! ;-)
