Happy #6

Finding a stash of gift cards people gave us for our wedding over a year ago!!! Yea!!! Let's go shopping!

Thursday Thoughts... on a Friday

I should probably be concerned that things are this slow for me with work today that I have now blogged twice, however, I'm just not going to think about it...

What I AM thinking about is this...
- I SERIOUSLY don't understand why the woman who lives upstairs vacuums EVERY SINGLE DAY! I mean, there's cleanliness and then there's OCD.

- I love Elvis Presley.

- I can't wait to use my new Sizzix machine and make super cute tags for Christmas presents this year!

- I don't really understand how our apartment gets chillier throughout the day. I mean it's getting warmer outside and the thermostat has the same temp on it... life's mysteries...

- I'm super pumped about what Mama is getting Matt for Christmas. I keep saying that to him too, so I hope I haven't overdone it... even though it is going to be really exciting!

- I think I'm choosing to write this as I am really so overwhelmed I don't know rather to scratch my watch or wind my butt (yes, stolen from Steel Magnolias). Here's what all I should be doing and have to get done within the next 24 hours before I get on a plane to Bama.
* Vacuum my own apartment... I may just asked the lady from upstairs to come visit us...
* Empty the dishwasher
* Finish the laundry that's been in the machines for the past 2 days
* Bake cookies, lemon squares and bark
* Organize and box all Christmas present for their correct location - Alabama or Massachusetts
* Wrap the presents that have to go to Massachusetts
* Pack all work clothes that I will need for my trip to Bama in one suitcase...
* Pack all other clothes that I will need for hanging around the house for Matt to bring when he comes down to Bama
* Organize two weeks worth of work stuff to take with me
* Address Christmas cards!! I forgot about that one til just now!
* Oh yeah, and I'm in the middle of a work day...
* Hmm... this is a long checklist for the day... I should get going...

Mer Crimmus, Elvis

This year I was a little bummed because Matt and I were unable to decorate for Christmas. We literally travel so much around this time of year, it just wasn't feasible to do all the work for the few days we were actually going to be home... sad, I know.

So, I'm not really a fan of Christmas music... I mean I have to be IN THE MOOD for it. Which basically means, don't start playing it in October, ok? But this morning, as I sit here surrounded with everyone's Christmas presents (well, maybe not everyone, I still have a lot to do), I was like... hmm... I'm feeling kinda Christmassy. I think I will download some Christmas itunage.

And what better Christmas tunage to download than... Elvis Presley! Gosh, I love him. So, folks, if you want to get into the Christmas spirit, may I suggest a little Elvis Presley Christmas Duets. It will put a smile on your face!

Serious Issues

So, I know I haven't blogged in a while, so it is probably rather odd that this is what I choose to blog about... but it is consuming my brain so much (literally) that I can't really think about much else right now. So why not blog about it.

I woke up this morning with what I have now given the official name (for me anyway) as a sinugraine.

Sinus headache + Migraine = Sinugraine

It is the worst feeling your head/brain has ever experienced. Let me see if I can describe it...

Somehow in the middle of the night, while I was sleeping peacefully, someone punched my face right above my nose, in between my eyes, leaving my face feeling... bruised. Then, they took a long, sharp object... let's say a kabob stick... and stuck it in my right eye socket, right in the corner next to my nose and pushed it through my brain up to the top of my head. And then they (let's give this person a name... how about Satan?) took another and pushed it through the base of my brain. Oh yeah, and how about the light shining in my eyes that makes me want to just cry. And let's not forget my poor husband, whom I asked to please just stop moving in bed because it makes me feel like I'm on board with the Deadliest Catch guys and an going to lose control of my sea sickness any moment.

Maybe that can kinda put into words how I am feeling this morning...

Thank you, Jesus, for Real Coca-Cola, ice packs and Excedrine Migraine to help me get over my sickness... now can you help them create Excedrine Sinus?
