Hope you all have a wonderful week, let us know what you are up to ;O=

*************************************

As for me all I can say is :  2.5 Days done, 7.5 days to go. Ready to scream or pass out  ;O)  Cleaning lady didn't show up today and didn't bother to call, she's definitely going to get sticks in her XMAS stocking this year.

My week is looking pretty good so far....

Monday...Just hanging out at home today, have some phone calls to make, laundry, we'll watch another Christmas movie tonight. One of the calls is to the plumber!! Waiting for him to call me back. Our toilet is leaking at the base where it meets the floor, small leak, don't want to wait until it gets worse. These things should not happen in expensive December!!

Tuesday...Cleaning lady comes. My TOPS meeting is that night.

Wednesday...Need to get my car washed and do more Cmas shopping.

Thursday...Shopping.

Friday...Pick up some groceries.

Saturday...We're going to a Cmas party that evening and we'll bring the legendary green bean casserole..lol! Hey, I happen to like the stuff!! I make the original one with water chestnuts, bamboo shoots and cheddar cheese, along with the other standard stuff.

Sunday...Sunday school & church. My oldest dgd (age 15) has a school choir concert that evening that we're looking forward to.

Have a good week everyone!! Smile

Suzan...Oh, poor you!! I remember how stressful it was when I used to get house guests. Please rest as needed!!! They fend for themselves at home, they can fend for themselves at your house too!!!

How awful for your cleaning lady to not show up!!! Wow..and at Cmas time when they're looking for bonuses!! She'd better have a good reason!!

Ann..I should wrap gifts this week too. I don't have many yet, more are coming that I bought online and I still have more shopping to do locally. I tend to "forget" the wrapping until the last minute. Just might do it early this year! Surprised

Nice you're getting new recliners! I need a new one, too, but it will wait. Hope you love your's!!

Wow..you're ready for the holiday!! Wish I could say that!! My dd1 hasn't even given me their lists yet!! She's been out of town, though, and had no time to think about it before she left. She returns Wednesday and I'll be bugging her for a list fast!!

Hi everyone!

Sorry I haven't posted anything in over a week. Finals were all week this past week, so my week consisted of studying, coffee, studying, coffee, freaking out, etc. Smile

This past weekend wasn't the best. "Aunt Flo" decided to pay me a holiday visit, so this weekend was really brutal. Had probably the worst period-related migraine on Saturday, and the fact that I decided to go shopping that day wasn't wise. I nearly passed out in pain on the taxi ride back to my apartment. All I could do when I got back was to rip off my clothes and literally crash into my bed, throwing my huge comforter over me from head to toe. It was really brutal.

Yesterday wasn't all that fun, either. The bloating kicked in, and I went to a concert with some of my college friends. I decided to squeeze into a pair of jeans (horrible idea), and went. The swelling and puffiness was so unbearable that I had to undo the bottom three buttons on my blouse and the top button on my jeans during the concert (felt like I was going to pop if I didn't), and by the time I went to a coffeehouse with my friends afterwards, I could not sit down without completely undoing my jeans (very embarrassing).Wore a somewhat short fitting blouse that night, so I couldn't really cover it up. Embarassed

Today, I'm just nursing it off. Midol's been my best friend over the past few days, along with green tea (an excellent diuretic, by the way). Really helped with the bloating and water weight discomfort. This was by far one of my worst "cycles" ever, don't know what exactly caused it to be so horribly brutal. I'll be headed back to my family's place at the end of the week (for almost a whole month), so that should be quite enjoyable. The majority of the rest of my week will consist of packing and securing my apartment before I leave, so I'm really trying to nurse this off today.

That's terrible of the cleaning lady to not show up and not let you know!  As for your visitors, don't wear yourself out and I hope the time goes quickly.

I'm doing my usual laundry today and finishing up wrapping the presents. Now I know why I usually wrap them on the living room floor - because once I start, I have to finish and I can just shove them across the room to the tree when I'm done. When they're downstairs on a table, I forget about them and then have to haul them upstairs to put under the tree.  Nearly done, though! Just one gift left to wrap and a few left to bring upstairs.

As for the rest of the week, I'm waiting for a call telling me when on Wednesday my new recliners will be delivered.  Tom and I decided to replace the recliners we have as a gift to ourselves. The chairs we have are kind of old and are really too big for the room (especially one of them) and one of them is in a light fabric that shows every spot or dirty look it gets, lol. The new ones are going to be smaller (hope that won't mean "not comfy"), will not take up a lot of room when reclining (they call it "zero-wall") and are dark brown.  I think I'll like them. I hope I will. But with my knack for second-guessing myself and hating change (even change I bring on myself), I'm feeling a little apprehensive, lol.

Tuesday I have nothing going on. Wednesday I'll get the chairs (whether I like them or not, lol!) and Thursday & Friday look open so far, other than occasional errands in town.

  The tree is up and the house is as decorated as it's going to be and my cards are all out, so I guess I'm ready for the holidays!

LOL, I vary in my reaction to changes. If I have time to consider the change, or have a hand in it, I'm .... okay. But if someone springs sudden change on me, like rearranges a room without telling me they're going to, or changes plans without telling me ahead of time, I freak. I hate that I react that way. I can feel it building and try to control it, but until I've moved everything back or told myself several times to calm down and roll with the change of plans, I am not fit to be around. What's funny is, Colleen is the only one who has ever gotten what it takes to keep me sane about changes.  She says it's because she used to work with autistic kids, LOL!

Megan...Welcome back! Ouuu..poor you!! I remember those days of long ago when cramps were so horribly bad. Glad you got to go out with your friends, though, even though you were uncomfortable. That would be a good time to wear slacks without a zipper and a shirt or sweater that comes well down over the waistband. Hope tomorrow's a better day.

Nice you'll be heading back 'home' soon and for a whole month too!! Have a great time!! Hope you have nice warm weather again too! Check in with us while you're there and make us envious of you!! :)
