Grilling Goodness #11

GoldenGoodness

Agh, my brain is a little fried this week, but I'm giving this a go anyway. Why? Because I luv you guys!!

Christmas is less than a week away and I pray that you are not going crazy like I am having a wonderful time preparing for the festivites of next week.

Now, let's get down to business, shall we?

1. What pain reliever do you swear by?

2. Have you gotten up-to-date with a flat screen HDTV?

3. Have you honked at anyone lately?

4. What is your favorite household product?

5. What is the earliest you've gotten up this week and why?

6. Do you travel out of town for Christmas?

7. Have you been listening to Christmas music? (Favorite?)

8. When do you exchange gifts with family?

My Answers
1. I'm an ibuprofen girl. But I've had several yucky headaches lately and my friend wants me to try Excedrin Migraine...we'll see.

2. Yes. A very large flat screen Plasma HDTV is what we bought a year ago. LOVE my big'ol TV!

3. Well...I've tried. My horn doesn't always work. It works when you'd rather NOT be honking at something. It's moody...which is probably a good thing because I used to be 'honk-happy'. People here really do drive crazy...and the busy-ness of the season just brings it out more. There is a really busy/scary parkway by the mall...I'm sure there is a wreck nearly everyday.

4. Favorite household product? Those things equal work in some fashion, right? Bah. I guess if I have to choose, I'll go with the Magic Eraser. It cleans gunk out of crevices, rust out of the sink and Sharpie off of anything.

5. I got up at 4:45am yesterday because hubby needed to take a few dishes to work for an office party. His alarm went off at 4:45am, so I got up to cook for him. Then I did some work since I was up. Then I got on my elliptical machine. My day started WAY too early. I will beg for a sleep-in day tomorrow.

6. We have a time or two in the past, but we don't have those plans this year. We will stay around here to celebrate with the close family that lives nearby.

7. The Christmas music I've been listening to the most is the music for our church musical (this weekend. I've had to memorize the songs because we won't be using the books for every song. The fun part about this is that my children have learned these songs right along with me. I'm pretty sure that Ella could perform nearly the entire musical...on key and everything. She's my amazing little performer!

8. It has been tradition for as long as I can remember that we gather with family on Christmas Eve for party food, snacks and gifts. When we get home from that (or when everyone leaves our house) we might open gifts from each other, but sometimes we wait until Christmas morning.



JESUS is the REASON for the SEASON!!

May your Christmas be merry and bright!!! God Bless!!


There will be no Grilling Goodness next week...please be sure to come back on January 2nd!

I'm going to join in on this meme later today. I am one who gets migraine headaches and I have compared ibuprofen to the Excedrin Migraine and for me, the Excedrin works better. I will use ibuprofen as a second choice, but prefer Excedrin. I agree with your friend, if you have been having horrible headaches, give Excedrin Migraine a try. It works wonders for me even when they are so bad that it seems impossible to form a simple thought in my head.

1) Post-Pregnancy Motrin, otherwise Tylenol
2) No because hubs still can't make up his mind how BIG we need it to be.
3) Yes because Avery always says "honk honk" in the car so hubs has been humoring her and honking at everyone
4) METHOD!
5) I get up every few hours to fed a baby
6) Once in a while but usually no - if you want to see us the road goes both ways
7) YES! Celine Dion makes me cry everytime
8) if/when they decide to come otherwise they get it via usps.

I finally got around to posting mine. I tried to post it last night but it was just too darn cold and the connection didn't want to cooperate. :(

Merry Christmas to you and the family! Talk to you soon!
