Lazy Day

I am enjoying a lazy day off today. This is the first day in the last 14 days where I didn't have twenty things planned and wasn't in the car running around all day.

Why is that your(or my) life can be completely boring and have nothing going on for months at a time, but then all of a sudden life is crazy and you find you aren't even home enough to get the house picked up?

October has been a whirlwind. I can't believe it is almost over already.

I am so glad it is, though because that means the Pres.idential Ele.ction will be over because I am sick to death of it. I swear if I have to listen to one more radio commercial about one of the Propositions I will stab myself in the ears with a pair of sharp scissors. Or something less dramatic. But seriously. Are there really people left in this country who are undecided who are going to hear one of those commercials and change their minds? Probably not. Joe and I sat down a week ago and went over each and every issue on the ballot so we(I) would fully understand the implications of each one and we filled out our sample ballots and we're good to go. And now I am sick of talking about it and I'm sure you are sick of hearing about it.

And next month is November, and then the holidays begin in earnest, and Holy Cow, I Am. Not. Ready. Well, mentally I'm not ready. As far as Christmas shopping goes, I am way ahead of schedule. I usually start the day after Halloween, but this year I have a couple of things bought already and have started on a very ambitious project of handmade gifts that I'm sure I will be working on right up until Christmas eve(as witnessed by the making of the wedding scrapbook).

I took a class last night and made the first set and then purchased all of the supplies I need to make 8 more sets. They turned out so cute. I would show them to you, but I can't because chances are if you are part of my family, or you know me, you are getting some for Christmas.

We are going to have to be on a serious budget this year. Which sucks. I love going all out on Christmas. I'm one of those people who buys a gift for the lady that does my hair. And the mail carrier(who I don't even know. We live in an apartment). They are small gifts, but still. I love giving gifts. But I'm going to have to pare way down this year because of Joe's job situation(which I am not talking about here, thankyouverymuch). So my list of people to buy for is much smaller, and I'm making a lot of handmade gifts. It's the thought that counts, right?

Joe just got home and has gone to bed. He taught this morning and has to go to work from 10:00 p.m. tonight until 6:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. I don't know how he does it.

It is 1:45 p.m. and I am still in my pajamas. Is that wrong?

And finally, just for fun:

What Your Cute Monster Says About You

You are a giving, open, loving person. You truly want the world to be a better place.

You appreciate what you have in life. You are very content.

Your inner demon is sensitivity. You are very sensitive, and your sensitivity can be a double edged sword.

People think you're cute because you're generous. You are easy to love - it's part of your charm.

You are such a lovable person! I love that you give the mail person who you don't know a gift. Our Christmas will also be slim this year. We are even thinking of canceling Dland, we're waiting to see what referrals do in the next 2 months. If we do go it wont be for the entire 5 days. :(

I have no problem with you in your jammies until 2pm, you deserve it girl!!!

Did I tell you that my friend's husband got a job at the same place as your husband (different city) and works those same stinky 10-6 hours!!!!

I love having 'pajama' days! I think they are good for you every now and then. :)

I haven't even thought about Christmas yet. I read yesterday that it Christmas is in 57 days. That's a scary thought. I am jealous you have a jump on it already.

I hope you enjoyed the rest of your day.
