It’s November 30th. Almost December. And, also, it’s the company Christmas Party today – officially the day the guys in the office let me start singing Christmas Carols without telling me to shut my festering gob! Woo Hoo!! ;)
But before this busy, fun, festive weekend begins… let’s Confess.
I confess…that I have a lot to do tomorrow, so I’m intending on actually behaving tonight at the Christmas Party. I need to finish up my shopping, and the last thing I want to do is tackle Wal-Mart…hungover. So tonight, I shall prove that I can still have fun without releasing Sadie from her cage. I love a challenge! ;)
I confess… that I am, once again, in credit card debt. How the HECK did this happen?!? We drew names this year. There was a spending cap. It’s never been so easy to stick to a damned budget, and yet somehow… I’m way, way over my limit.
I confess… that it *may* be because I bought a few too many “presents” for myself. Oops. Oh, and ALSO… DAMN the License Bureau and my last name starting with “Y” because I have to pay my vehicle registration every year at the end of November. Perfect time to take $250 out of my bank account, License Bureau. Thanks a lot. *sigh*
I confess… that I get mild panic attacks when I look ahead to the busy weekends coming up in the first half of December. I’m not entirely sure how I’m going to cram everything in, but I keep reminding myself it’s all fun stuff. Deep breaths, be grateful for so many family & friends…and enjoy it.
I confess… that I kind of fell asleep on the couch around 8:30 last night. In the middle of The Vampire Diaries. I never fall asleep during The Vampire Diaries!!! I slept through Grey’s too, and was sure I’d be awake all night thanks to my impromptu nap, but actually konked out again when my head hit the pillow at 10 PM, and slept right through to my alarm. Apparently I needed that?
I confess… that I haven’t watched a Christmas movie yet. This is unusual for me. Hopefully I can keep my eyes open long enough to watch one or two this weekend. I’m itching to start watching them.
I confess… that as my on-line orders keep rolling in each day this week, I get a little thrill. Each new parcel that arrives makes me so excited to cross a name off my list and get wrapping!!
I confess… that I really think my true calling in life was to be one of Santa’s elves. There is nothing I love more than this time of year – the decorations and lights, the treats and food, the music and Christmas specials, the wrapping and the presents, the festive drinks, the friends, and the family… :)
And so, seeing how it’s almost December, allow me to say, for the first time this holiday season… Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals!!! ;)
…And have great weekend, too.
