Well it seems that I survived last week (barely).

The kicker came on Thursday. I got up early and then proceeded to fart around until 9:00, which is time to wake Linds up (she sleeps through her alarm). When I did, she freaked out and said:

"MOM, LOOK AT THE TIME!!".

Yeah. So what?

"WE'RE LATE".

Silly girl, it's Friday...we're not late.

What? It's Thursday? - IT CAN'T BE!!!
(I did a quick recap...it really was) OH MY GOD, WE'RE LATE!!!

I'm supposed to have Linds at school by 9:00 and be at work by 9:15 on Thursdays - the lightbulb moment occurred at precisely 9:11. (Fitting) Oh Joy. We really were late.

I got to work at 10. I'm never late so I wasn't too worried, but it did set me back all day. When I had a quiet moment I actually stopped and had to think back over the week to figure out how it was only Thursday. How did that happen?....I felt so gypped. Some may call it a blonde moment, I, however, attribute it to being on overload. Yeah, that's it.

So, according to my calculations, I should've just stayed home on Friday because it was technically Saturday to me - no? Have I lost you yet?

Speaking of Christmas - I wrote about 20 cards out last week. Today I actually addressed 5. Tomorrow, who knows - they may even get mailed. Maybe. There have been years that I've done all my cards and not mailed them. Efficiency's my middle name.

The ex and Linds did get a tree today so that's a step in the right direction. It's in the carport, waiting for a sudden burst of energy by me, which would actually get it inside and in a stand. Maybe tomorrow.

I don't know how this happens....December just sort of quietly sneaks in and hangs around until it smacks me over the head with Christmas. I think I'll start in October next year. Maybe even August.

Well friends, hope things are falling into place for you. Is anyone else feeling behind this year or am I the only one who ignores calendars and wings it. It obviously isn't working and I think I need a new plan.

(Oh, remind me to tell you about our Pokemon Olympic Mascots tomorrow. Pitiful)

we are all in some weird holding pattern , pardon the pun, until I get a start day at the new job. So everything seems not right.
Olympic mascots huh can't be as bad as Atlanta in 1996 with the "whatzit" can it?

Junky's right, the Atlanta mascot was hands down the worst.

I am actually starting to get on top of things here, or at least I will be if I get off the computer and go do all the things that I booked the day off work to do.

Don't sweat it!

tk....you mean I'm not the only one? Whew.

JD...I'm thinking the same thing...we'll make it every 5 years or so, just to stay in touch.

junky...I mailed your card to the address I have...hope you're still there. I actually have the Aero's packaged up...should I wait until you move or send em now to the same address?

bb...I forget that mascot. I'm going to google it - it can't be as bad as these homely creatures.

bd...well that sucks about the RSVP's/cancelled cheesecake. I'm sure there's a law about cancelled cheesecake?

I'll email you...thx

ropi...you sound just like my son, bless you prompt lil hearts.

gled...I'm starting to get my Christmas happy on. I love this time of year, it's just I'm not ready for it yet!!

PS...wish there was some way I could get an address for you. :(
