And I Am Still So Busy!

My workload is just crazy right now and it doesn't help that I have succumbed to the illness the boy's girl shared with him, so I probably won't be able to write a daily update until the first of the year. It makes me sad - this blog is very good for me.

The other downfall was Friday night. The girl and I ended up at the mall to get a birthday gift and we decided on Webkinz. The girl started to cry,"I've ALWAYS wanted a charcoal cat!" and she has these amazing giant brown eyes that began to fill quickly with tears.

I was so very, very tired - it was almost 9 and I still had so much to do, so I caved. That is what happens to a woman who is exhausted and just wanting to leave the mall without a scene. I bought one for her and one for her friend.

So now I'm addicted, like a ho to meth. I ask people, Oh if you're going to the Hallmark store I need a cow - I mean my daughter needs the cow...and can you check out the charms? Here's a list of the ones I don't need - I mean she doesn't need".

Ack! I have successfully avoided my obsessive compulsive behavior for a couple of months (oh shut up, the Huell thing does NOT count). And besides, I mean the obsessive-compulsive thing that I can live on for years...

Okay, I'm off to read my favorite blogs. Thank you so much for reading!

lol. I sure hope I'm done buying crap. I'm starting to forget where I've hid it all.

I'm sure you got the check - wasn't the fez in the package with it?

Welcome back!

And - lest I add - once you get on Webkins, you're screwed.

I often find myself logging into my son's account, and heading to the "Tournament Area" to kick other kids' asses at games.

It's a "feel good" kind of thing.

mooooog35, lol, you are really bad. I went home sick and tried it, and I kicked butt.

I have not been this ill in a long time.

Elise - thank you. I left at lunch to stop by my little one's party, and called to let work know there was no way I could finish my hours. I was feeling terribly guilty until I read your note.
