What is it with all you people posting your goal results for 2012 and posting your 2013 Goals?
2012 is not over yet.
And I am just trying to get through December and everyone already has their 2013 shit together?!
Should I just throw in the cyber-towel now and call Game Over?
I'm sorry but I can't even "go there" with Goals for this year OR next year yet. Plenty of time for that once the calendar rolls over into January.
I am still trying to get our Christmas tree ornamented. The kids seem to have no interest in what is ON the tree, just what is UNDER the tree.
My time in eBay HELL is over for now.
I closed it down on Tuesday. Better to shut down a week before Christmas than to leave myself open to dealing with panicking last minute gift buyers.
I already had one of them screw me over on Tuesday......asking questions(which I answered promptly), then buying something, then sending me a "I can't afford that, never mind" email a few minutes later when they actually looked at the shipping costs for the item.
On second thought, I should have closed it down a day sooner and would have avoided this asshat.
At least eBay HELL helped pay for Christmas and got some more things out of the house.
Now I get to clean the dining room aka "eBay shipping & packing central" and stack up the eBay storage tubs in the corner until after Christmas. Now if only Hubs would stack the Christmas tubs somewhere other than the living room, things would look a bit neater in here.
I've got most everything wrapped at this point. One gift has still not arrived and the chances are it won't get here before the 25th, but I knew that was a possibility when I ordered it back in November. It's all good.....
Speaking of wrapping paper......I don't think I can ever use up what's here if I live to be 92. 90 maybe, but 92?....unlikely.
If I try to buy wrapping paper the week after Christmas, please come here and wrap my knuckles, willya?
I accomplished the gifting without stepping foot into a mall and most big box stores.
I did venture into Target with Hubs a couple of weeks ago with a $10 off $50 purchase Q but didn't see a thing worth buying. It did give me some claustrophobic feelings and upped my stress level a notch or two. Damn you Target Q!
And just for the record, my last trip before this one into a Target was about 2 years ago. I do not "heart" Target.....
The only stores I've been in this month, besides that Target misadventure, are Rite-Aid(of course!lol), the Grocery stores, Ollie's, the Dollar Tree Store, KMart, Dollar General, and Bed Bath & Beyond. Oh, and Sears to pick up an online order. Gee, maybe I DID step foot in alot of store after all. ;-)
I am not looking forward to the Band Concert on Thursday. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE listening to my youngest playing for an audience. It's the audience that I can't stand.
People around here make very bad audiences. The grownups talk incessantly while the kids are performing and play with their phones. They let their young kids wander and run about the auditorium unsupervised while they pretend to listen and play with their phones.
It's so rude and disrespectful of the performers! And then they wonder why their kids grow up to be rude and disrespectful?
Give me my days back in the Opera world where you had to wait for an intermission to be seated if you came in late and there was no getting up and down to get a drink or use the rest room.
Maybe if they started charging for these recitals people would value the performance more and not bring their "too young to sit still" brats and stop texting long enough to pay attention?
#1 Son is due home on Saturday.
He may look like this.....
But he'll always be this to me......
I miss him so much because he hardly ever comes home and we don't see him much. Of course, after he's been here 5 days I'm ready to send him back. I like to think that it's because we are both strong personalities and so alike in many ways. Or he's just a PITA....lol
Every time I turn on the AMC Channel, they are playing one of the various movie productions of "A Christmas Carol". I've seen the Reginald Owens(original one), the George C. Scott and the Albert Finney(titled SCROOGE) versions so far. No Alistair Sim Version yet....
I have also watched BAD SANTA about 4 times since Thanksgiving.....on Spike TV I think.
Haven't caught "It's A Wonderful Life" yet though.
I really could use "two, tree bottles" of hard cider and a date night with George Bailey about now.
12 more days.....12 more days.......
