Is Christmas Break Over Yet?

Call me a Grinch...Call me a Scrooge...but I am taking this danged tree down soon and not waiting until the New Year like we usually do.

The kids are stir-crazy being in the house all day. I am stir-crazy having them in the house all day.

Oh and get this... I take Maggie, our dog, to the groomers for a bath and trim the other day. I decided to ask for the extra Christmas package which included nail polishing, teeth cleaning, etc... so Maggie could get some day spa treatment.

I get there and I am told I have to show proof of rabies innoculation. OK, I just got the dog's shot four days before the appt. so she would be all set and she has her new tags with current year and numbers hanging from her new collar that she got for Christmas.

Well, that wasn't good enough for the groomer. I had to show the actual paper signed by the doctor. Never mind her tags had all the info on it. So, I had to go home and find the stupid paper. The guy told me I could call back with the info, so I did. Some woman answers and tells me that isn't good enough and she needs to see the paper in person and can I please drive all the way back and show it to her? Seems as if the office where she got the shot wasn't open and the county office was closed as well, so there was no way to confirm anything via phone.

So, the kids and I drive back to the groomers and show the danged paper. Then on top of all that, when we get home I notice that the dog has no color on her nails. So, hubbie calls them, since I was too mad to speak to them again, and they tell him that I should have read the fine print on the poster for the Christmas package...you have to request the danged nail polish!!

Sorry, the poster plainly stated nail polish was included in the package, so I assumed it would be done.

Obviously, we won't be going to that groomer again.

Danged frickin' doggie salon.

"I believe that no matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, you can not baptize cats." - Larry the Cable Guy

A Tennessee man and an Alabama man were both fighting in a war and were captured by the enemy.
"Before we put you to death," said the enemy, "do you have any last requests?"
"Yes," said the Alabaman. "Could you play 'Yeah, Alabama' before you shoot me?"
"Sure," said the enemy. "How about you, Tennessean?"
"Could you shoot me before you play 'Yeah, Alabama?'"
