Merry Christmas...Here's your toilet seat!
Yes, I got a new toilet seat for Christmas. I'm not even sure where to go with that statement...or if I possibly COULD go anywhere useful with it..but there it is...the glaring truth...a toilet seat. Yes, I needed a new one, the old one had a metal attachment screw that proceeded to corrode and break, so it's not like it was a wasted gift, in fact I just took a hot bath and sat and admired it from across the room...its kind of attractive...sparkly white and new looking...but I'm having people over tomorrow and I know they're going to ask "So, what did you get for Christmas?" to which I'll have to reply, "you just sat on it".
WHO gave me this exceedingly practical gift? Guess. No, really, I bet you 'll get it first try. :-P Keep reading, I'll throw in the answer at the bottom on this post..
My absolute FAVORITE gift was something that was kind of an afterthought on my Mother's part..well..not really an "afterthought" but she came across an old picture of my Grandparents taken way back in 1942 and she scanned it and blew it up and framed it for me. I cried when I unwrapped it I was so touched. Crying over gifts is something I hardly ever do, and now its sitting on one of my shelves on chimney and every time I look at it I get a little teary.
It was a fun Christmas all the way around, I really had a good time with family this year, everyone was happy and appreciative and it was really a very stress free (well..close anyway) holiday season.
My husband got me the toilet seat, btw. Along with a toaster oven and a lamp for the living room. Ever practical that man :-P lol. He DID get me flannel pjs, the Band of Brothers box set of Dvd's and he bought me a 3ft tall stocking and FILLED it with various things like warm socks and candy so it wasn't ALL bad...but when I unwrapped the toilet seat the first thing out of my mouth was "You do realize I'm going to blog about this, don't you?" LOL ;-P
I hope you all had a great time with your families :-)
