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.

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.

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!!

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!!

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
