Twenty minutes later.

Kenny's mom is coming over to watch the girls for a bit. It was supposed to be for us to get the last little bit of shopping done, but we are totally taking advantage and going out to dinner. I figure it is deserved, as we just found out about two hours ago that Emmi needs two more surgeries in the immediate future. Merry fucking Christmas to me. Anyway, I am going out to eat, and therefor not cooking dinner for my children.

Pizza night.

I looked up the number for Pizza Hut, and asked Kenny to call it. I am notorious for avoiding placing phone calls. He pointed out the little "Order Here" button, and told me to order online. Cool. Right up my alley. Twenty minutes later, I was still clicking buttons and filling out blanks. Yes, I am sure I want cheese on both sides of my pizza. Yes, I want sauce on there, too. Not light on the sauce. Just regular. My mother's maiden name. My dog's birthday. I got all the way down to the username and password.

"Kenny, what do you want for a username and password," I yelled across the room.

"You are still ordering that pizza?" He looks at me like I am crazy.

Uh. Yes. This was his idea. Before I could finish typing in my password, my security question, and promise my first born child Kenny called, placed the order, and was sitting happily on the couch.

I am still trying to come up with a good username.

This is cracking me up because I was sick a few weeks ago and Jeff wasn't, so I decided to order a pizza online and it took FOREVER.

That's pretty much the stupidest thing ever invented.

Have fun tonight and I'm sorry about Emmi.

Merry Christmas too!

I ordered pizza online once, keyword being: once. It's really more trouble than it's worth and it took longer to get here than normal.

Sorry about Emmi, does this mean that we can't get together now when I come in town?

hey, did you get my email? We're here, but leave in the morning and come back on Saturday...would love to hang out...I think the three girls would have a BLAST!

HA! Hope you guys enjoyed your dinner out with no kiddos and got your last minute shopping done (im sure that was great fun) with the rest of Houston! Merry Christmas and praying for sweet little Emmi!

Luckily our last minute shopping consisted of Barnes & Noble and Petco, so it wasn't too bad!

And Allison...yes, that is his number. I emailed you my number also, cause Kenny doesn't always answer his phone.

Yeah, they ask more questions online than they do when you order over the phone.

Sorry to hear about Emmi's upcoming surgeries. Will keep you all in my prayers.

Merry Christmas to all of you!!

I ordered online once because I thought that was how you got the discounts, but it took forever and if you didn't go fast enough you would have to start ALL over. Uh!
