10. Drove around the neigborhood silently mocking all the people that
still have a Christmas wreath on their door
9. Threw out all the clothes that don't fit anymore
8. Went through photo albums to see how much I've aged since this
time last year
7. Read old letters I wrote as a child - pretending to be happy
6. Bought more Pull-Ups for the 10-year-old
5. Ate nothing but Valentine M&Ms and drank coffee all day
4. Listened to the Carpenters - thought of poor Karen starving to death
3. Made a list of every boy I've loved that didn't love me back
2. Counted grey hairs
1. Calculated my 2006 taxes

Carrie, you are so funny. I hope you're getting a big tax refund!

I hope that you drove past MY house, Carrie, because not only is my wreath still on my door, my Christmas tree was still up until about a week ago. I would have invited you in to share in the joy of my very dead tree. It's just so "over" when everything is gone.

I used to have a neighbor who, I SWEAR, didn't take her Christmas decorations down outside until around Easter! I used to wonder why she took them down at all--think of the work she'd save herself next Christmas! Hah.
As for the taxes, maybe you'll get a refund, so you can buy more coffee and chocolates!
love ya, RHDT

Wow! You DO know how to have fun!

Taxes and everything?

At least there were M & M's involved.

Hang on, girl. We're on our way. Soon you'll be wrapped in a circle of women who love you deeply. You, the essential Carrie, the one who was beautiful even before you were born and will be beautiful forever.

The coffee and M&M thing? We've got to talk. If you're going to live on chocolate, make it worth it. Get yourself some good chocolate, cause I know your coffee's the good stuff.

You are killing me.....

I'm just glad to see that I am not the only one that still listens to the Carpenters. Did you update to CD or were you listening to cassette tape or vinyl?

kario said...

Okay, at this moment I'm going to burn you a CD of my favorite melancholy-but-not-sad music and go and buy you some Swiss chocolate. See you in a few weeks and I'll teach you how to party!

holly said...

oh, you are so funny. really, if you need some more fun - i can send you my taxes to do (with m&m)

So funny - I would love to sing some Carpenter tunes with you - I just bought their greatest hits this year...but nobody sings along with me.
Sounds like you were having a "rainy days and Sundays always get me down" kind of a day.
luv u.

You never fail to make me laugh, even when I don't think I have any laugh in me! You sure know how to live it up. Well, the chocolate/coffee thing anyway!
