Last night was the worse night of sleep. First Brian couldn't sleep and was tossing and turning, which woke me up. Then he went downstairs and I just couldn't sleep without him so I went downstairs. We watched the trailers for Avatar and New Moon. They look like okay movies. After that we went back to bed around 11:15 and I did fall asleep only to wake up about 4:40 am. Dang, the stupid alarm goes off at 5:15. This sucks! And then, we hear the crying. Jillian wet her bed. So, after stripping down her and the bed and putting her in the shower and starting the washer, it was time for my shower. Just great! Hopefully I don't fall asleep at my desk today. So, I know your dying to hear about my weekly plans. I'm so busy! I am actually going to have to make lists or I'll completely lose track of what I'm doing.
Today I need to get Brian's parents their gifts. I'm making stockings for a few people this year and I need to get gifts small enough to fit into these really cute stockings I bought at Old Navy for $1. I also need to get my friend Bert her gift. She lost a lot of weight this year and mentioned that none of her pajama bottoms fit anymore. Which just happens to work out because Old Navy has all of their pj's on sale for $8. I need to run these two errands during "lunch". I'm actually spending my lunch listening for phone calls because Brian's group will be going out to lunch today. This really puts a damper on my plans. I also have to work out and I have a meeting at 3. I will make it work though. I will.
Tonight is Awanas, which is good. After I drop the kids off I'm running over to JC Penney to get some socks (to put in the stockings) and then going over to Fred Meyer to return a few items and pick up some candy, which includes a Hershey bar for Jordan's secret Santa gift exchange at school to go with the hackey sack I already bought. Luckily all of the teacher's gifts are already purchased and wrapped, which reminds me, I need to give Darby her teacher's gift tonight.
Tomorrow is our potluck at work. I decided I'm re-gifting for the white elephant gift exchange. First of all, it's a white elephant gift exchange so you aren't expected to bring anything fantastic, and second, I always try to buy something cute and funny and then I either end up with my own gift or something really awful. So I'm re-gifting and I doubt anyone will even know. I am also suppose to bring something for the potluck and I'm totally cheating this year because I don't have time to cook tonight. So fried chicken from the grocery store it is. Oh and I have a doctor's appointment that morning. Dr. appointment, pick up chicken, potluck and gift and exchange and I really need to work out that afternoon. My pants are starting to snug up. Ugh!
After work tomorrow I have my eye brow wax appointment and then I might just go home, or I'll stop and pick up the rest of my stocking stuff. Depends on how I'm feeling.
Thursday is not a good day. Last week my former boss passed away. She had a tumor in her brain that was the result of breast cancer. She finally retired from work last year and the last few months were pretty hard on her and her family. It's very sad and she was very young and has three young daughters. Her services are on Thursday. I'm sure that most of our group will be going. I'm very sad for her family and it makes me so thankful that I have such healthy kids and Brian and that I'm healthy. It also shows that health can change very quickly and nothing should be taken for granted. It's scary. That night is also Jillian's program. She has a line in the play and she has all of her songs memorized. I am so excited to see her. There will be a ton of pics. I actually have quite a few pictures of Jordan and Darby's programs too, but they are still on the camera.
Friday, I have a lunch and other things going on and I don't even want to think about it. I think we have a party that evening, which means I need to get Jillian a sitter, and blah, blah, blah. And for sure by Saturday I need my gifts wrapped so Brian and his dad can drive them up to the cabin. And I feel overwhelmed but if I get it all done this week and I can enjoy my days off the next week. I've already made plans to have lunch with Brian's sister-in-law. The sane one. I'm very excited for Christmas week. The kids don't have school and I won't be rushed to get things done. It will be nice. I think.
