Well.

Journal, Lauren

(By the way – Happy Birthday, Mark!) 

Darn elves.  I’m going to have to start leaving traps out. Lloyd and I came home from Lincoln tonight to find that a certain ‘bathroom elf’ had left some pretty towels for the bathroom.  Well, I had planned a perfectly good evening of sitting around and watching important television shows, but no – I had to do something to justify a new post.

May I present – the Holiday Bathroom, inspired by Sneaky Lady

The towels that started it all...

Yes, there’s a tree in my bathroom.  Funny story.  I put up our old tree in the living room a couple of days ago, and several times since have thought, “I really should buy a skinnier tree that fits in that room better.”  This evening when I was looking for other stuff in the basement, lo and behold – I found a box with the skinny tree I bought last year.  It’s fun being absent-minded.

A tree?  In the loo?

 A tiny view of the window.  I don’t know what I’m doing with the camera.

    I use poisoned cookies to get rid of my elf problem. RAID brand has some available, but I prefer the HOTSHOT brand cookies. The elves seem to like them better, plus they’re slow acting, so the elves are back outside the house again by the time they die. Because really, who wants to clean up dead elves?

      I thought about the RAID cookies, but I hear the people who lived by the old Keebler place got sued for wiping out the hive. I can’t take that risk -- traps are safer, more situation-specific.

    Beth should camp in the wintry bathroom. Puking would be more festive!

    I SHOULD camp in the bathroom! I’ll be over later to get organized…can you leave your toilet cleaner handy, it’s mandatory during my pregnancies.

    I’m so glad to see your bathroom. Wondered what color it would be. Sneaky elves are so nice. How did you get so lucky. Love Mom

    […] Since Lauren put up a picture of her bathroom Christmas tree, I felt I should do the same. I put this tree here every year because the lights show through the window. That way, the bank people and the Presbyterians have a little Christmas cheer from my bathroom. I don’t have any fancy towels, though. I guess that’s what I get for poisoning all the elves around here. […]
