i am SET!

ready for christmas, you ask?? after all, that would be the logical thought at this time of year.

no, i am not quite ready for the holidays – i still have the wrapping of presents to do. i like to leave that for closer to christmas. otherwise, YES! shopping, cards, baking, decorating…check, check, check, and bring on christmas.

actually, I AM SET for DIET COKE SUNDAY!!

(tangent: look!!! do you notice that my photo-uploading issue is FIXED!?! after a couple of q & a exchanges, the wonderful support crew at wordpress sent me this email at midnight last night:

Hey Cathy,

We’ve tracked down this issue and it should be fixed in the next 24 hours. Thanks for your patience.

Daniel | Support | WordPress.com

what GREAT customer service from wordpress! and now we are saved from all photos/all text blog posts til eternity!)

anyway…i purchased my diet cokes at walmart after work today. the bottles were $1.78 each which is highway robbery, considering i could buy 6×710 ml bottles at food basics for $2.97 BUT i do not want that much dc in the house…so i grudgingly paid that astronomical fee. those pops better taste DIVINE on sunday!

the fridge at home: old/new beverage beside new/replacement beverage of the last 11 months.

btw, that is new packaging/design on the dc bottles that i have not seen before (yes, i have been avoiding even looking at pop since last january).

approx 64 hours til drinkin’ time!!


a FUN weekend looms on the horizon:

  • a 40th bday party tomorrow eve
  • stitch n kitsch with mom on saturday, after work (last december’s recap here!)
  • the storeS’ holiday party sunday eve

december is flying by already!

    I can’t wait to see how your reunion with diet coke goes!
    I still have so much to do. Gifts to buy, and wrap, cards to write. I keep thinking there’s plenty of time, when it’s really a little more than 2 weeks away!

      less than 24 hours to go til dc time, zo! i am eiher going to be so disappointed or ecstatic! good luck with your holiday prep…now that you mention it, wow, christmas seems so close!

    It’s even BETTER than Christmas!

    I’m not a diet Coke fan, I prefer diet Pepsi. I will drink it if that’s all that’s offered. I keep a few packets of True Lime in my purse for when that happens. I AM excited though to hear what happens. Hope it’s worth the wait!! Have a great day, Cathy!

      fran, you read my mind because it is entirely possible i will take one sip…and not want any more! that happened once when i gave up dc for 13 months. we shall see! i like diet pepsi, too!

    I will have my usual one diet coke on Sunday, and I’ll be toasting in your general direction! I have not seen that label either (but I buy cans). Sounds like you have a fun weekend planned. I’m hanging with my 8yo since my older son and husband are going to Boston for a baseball camp.

    • 1970kikiproject  On December 6, 2012 at 8:48 pm

      all right! glad you are in for the virtual diet coke party, stacie! sounds like a fun weekend for your son and husband – boston is such a great city!
