Is it really almost 2011??

When I have a million things I want to blog about and can’t find the time or motivation to blog I just stop blogging. sad. I know! In order to avoid a blogging absence that last well into the new year we’re going to do a bullet post that lacks in pictures and creativity.

  • We have one more birthday to celebrate around here before Christmas can be in full swing.
  • My bedroom is a MESS, seriously I could use an elf to come clean it up for me.
  • I’ve lost my driver's license and I’m terrified I won’t be able to get one, and then I won’t get to fly, and then my best trip ever will be ruined.
  • I only lack one Christmas present, but I’m just drawing a blank.
  • and unlike every other person on the face of the earth, I do not give gift cards. I think they are super impersonal.
  • I usually hate online shopping, but coming home to a present every day for the last weekish has been fun!
  • if you have a .edu email address you can get free 2 day shipping from Amazon for a year! It’s my new favorite!!
  • If I had to pick a favorite “thing” about Christmas, it would be stockings! My mom always made the best stockings!
  • I got all As for the first semester since like 5th grade, I am so proud of myself for being dedicated to school this time around. I think I’ll be buying myself a present.
  • I’ve still never figured out if we are supposed to say Twenty-eleven or Two Thousand and Eleven.
  • I say the latter, so I guess that works.
  • I’m in charge of planning the Christmas eve menu, which is fine I just wish I had someone else to cook it for me.
  • I can’t decide if I should make Garrett a birthday cake or buy him one…I’m kind of leaning toward the buying, but I know he’d rather have one I made…
  • Maybe I’ll make him a small one and then use the rest of the batter for a Christmas cake?
  • I just can’t find a yellow cake recipe that’s moist, and I don’t have very many minutes to try a bunch of different ones before Thursday.
  • I’m at such a loss on what I need to take to go skiing, and I’m secretly terrified of even going.
  • Today I read that the only bone that has never been broken in a skiing accident is the inner ear bone….great…
  • plus I hate being cold.
  • On a positive note I’m super excited for a vacation!!

It's fine to say Two Thousand Eleven for the year. However, starting this year, it may be easier to make the switch to Twenty Eleven.
More people will make the switch this year and by Twenty Twenty, everyone will be saying the year like this.
Historically, we have always abbreviated the century and tacked on teh year. We do it on street addresses. I can't figure out why we don't do it when it comes to the year in this decade. Try the change and see if you can't adopt it into your everyday language.
