Stupid Elf.

Elf We have The Elf On The Shelf that I’m to hide every day in December, moving from place to place each day, closer to the Christmas tree and the kids have to find him each day but most of the time I get busy and I forget. Usually what happens is the 10 YR old reminds me that I forgot to hide him once I’m already up in bed for the night, already nice warm and cozy in my bed and I don’t want to get out and go downstairs and freeze to hide the stupid thing so it just gets forgotten for a day or two and then in the mornings(if I even remember) I’m too busy, and it goes a few days until I hide it again. It’s just become a pain in the ass to remember to do it every day, on top of everything else I have to do, and my mother snorted that I “don’t have any Christmas spirit”( even though that’s not true; I love Christmas and it makes me feel like I’m a kid again, so what does she know) and that “Once we get older we don’t ‘care’ about Christmas anymore” and I “should just delagate it to someone else” but the kids don’t want to do it,either( they want to look for it) so it’s just become yet another chore for me, something else that I have to do ,another job added to my list, that I have to remember, that I forget….uuggghhh…

As well, we got a snow storm,and even though it was – 18 C yesterday with a wind chill of -28 C the 19 YR old still went out to his jiu-jitsu class wearing Crocs barefoot, and my mother just steals food off other people’s plates and eats it without even asking and when I confronted her about it her excuse was,”Don’t they share?” and I read in the local newspaper that starting in the new YR the garbage will only be accepting CLEAR plastic garbage bags, to make sure that people aren’t sneaking recyclables into the garbage, and if they are they’ll refuse to pick it up, so the Enviro Nazis are now monitoring our garbage(talk about a fascist Police State!) now,too, and the news said over 300 000 kids(that’s not incl. adults) visit food banks in this country every month, and this is supposed to be a *developed* country? and that people in this country are the most “attached” to their country than any other people in any other country in the world which surprised me since this country SUCKS so much, but then again, people here aren’t too “bright”, either, so what do you expect from a bunch of dumb rednecks,anyway?They don’t know any better!
