12 Days of Blogmas: Day 10--the homework edition

OK, after two days of driving, we arrived in Newtopia safe and sound, and even had a pretty good dinner after we arrived, because for once I acted like a mom and got my husband to freeze half of the homemade lasagna he made for Christmas eve.

(Even though we go on these long drives ALL THE TIME, our safe arrival is always marred by the realization that ZOMG!!11!!! We need to buy milk!!!)

(This is actually OK, because it proves that I'm not my [hyper-organized, thrifty, practical] mother. No matter what my enemies say.)

But this time the lasagna AND THE MILK were in the freezer. Yay!

Caution: when you freeze milk, don't freeze an unopened bottle. Word to the wise.

OK, here's the third-runner-up to the last day of Christmas, so get ready to play! Figure out the name of the popular Christmas song illustrated with album covers grabbed from The first person to figure out the name of the song wins a Mamarazzi t-shirt. Ready?

And if you find this at all challenging, just imagine the joys of helping my son do the extremely lengthy homework packets he brought home from school on December 18th and just cracked open yesterday.


  1. Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

  2. What Christmas Means to Me?

  3. On the Curb got it! Onthecurb, email me your address and size preference and I'll send out your shirt.

    And hey Anonymous--thanks! I sometimes see something in my archives and think "hey, why don't I write that well any more? But now I realize that as the commercials used to say, I'm not getting older; I'm getting better. YAY ME!!!

  4. I was going to guess "Don't Fear the Reaper". Man, I suck at this.
