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.

Yep, it was pretty rough. I had sweatpants, but I didn't have a pair of pants with an elastic waist. Plus, the venue was semi-formal (it was at a concert hall in Manhattan) so I couldn't wear sweatpants. The only option I had were the jeans. The fact that the seats were pretty crammed and tight didn't help much, either. I wore a cropped cardigan over my blouse, so it obviously wasn't long enough to cover up my bloated tummy. I was seated for most of the time at the coffee house, so my undone jeans weren't that exposed. It was only embarrassing when I had to get up. I was hoping I'd be able to get them done up by the end of our time there, but the bloating was only getting worse. Not fun at all. Embarassed

Thankfully, things are better now, and the bloating is mostly gone.

Enjoy the rest of your week of quiet!

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!! :)

I can imagine it is hard to be nice! Sad they can't see you are not well and help you out instead of being the needy ones!

Well, I scrolled thru & read posts. A bit confusing I must say! I see Donna's reply to Ann before I see Ann's post!

Anywhoodles.... I worked today on this fine raint dreary cold Monday. And a MONDAY it was!!!  Tonite we are cozy up on the couch watching NFL - Patriots are on !

Tuesday - I took off. Need a break & besides I have to fill in hours for the F/T clerk. Gosh forbid they pay me for working 4 extra hours.So, eh...I get a day off ! Wayne & I will hang out. Maybe take a ride up north.We do need to get a tree sometime this week too.

Weds working both jobs..Thurs too

Fri- Pampered Chef Host Appreciation party
Sat- working the morning. Going to see the Nutcracker with my nieces.

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!

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!
