Ok - I've been SO LOOKING FORWARD to sleeping in today. I was planning on sleeping as late as absolutely possible. The kids were prepped, hubby was prepped. I was SLEEPING IN!!! Ahhh... The kitten decides to snuggle around 6ish - and she's purring and making biscuits like crazy, but it's soothing and I can pretty much sleep through it. 8am the phone rings. OH MY GOD!!! I jump out of bed - thinking it was my alarm. Trying to figure out what he heck is going on - I finally realize that it's the phone, and I have a phone on my bedside table. I answer it and it's a survey. It fully woke me up and I was SO PISSED OFF. It was survey about an oil change I had a few weeks ago. I yelled at the guy - DO YOU KNOW THAT IT'S 8am ON A SATURDAY MORNING??!!! AND I WAS STILL ASLEEP??!!!! AND YOU WOKE ME UP??!!!??? He then quickly said, "uhhh, we'll call you back at a different time" and quickly hung up.
While the place I get my oil changed is awesome - I don't think I'll ever go there again because if I do, they might CALL ME AND WAKE ME UP ON THE ONE DAY THAT I GET TO SLEEP IN!!!!!! Needless to say - I was totally awake then. Completely and totally, no going back to sleep for 30 mins, or even an hour. I'm still ticked off - some jerk from a survey company took away my ONE sleep in day.
Anyway, I made my list of things to do for Christmas, etc. And I immediately got stressed out. I have SO MUCH STUFF TO DO!!! However, I went to Taekwondo, we have testing on Wednesday so we are working hard to get enough classes in. Then we had lunch, went to the library and put up the Christmas decorations (which look awesome) and then I went to Target and got a bunch of stuff - including the book exchange books and the work exchange gift and a couple of other things that I need (like toilet paper.) So, I'm feeling better about that. I finished up another Christmas gift and it's ready to send and I bought my Christmas cards. My best friend is super organized and has had her Christmas shopping done for months (so has my mom actually - she has already purchased AND shipped all of the gifts.) Whoo! So, I'm feeling a little bit better. I also got my long walk in for the week - so I'm completely exercised and down several pounds. If this weekend is anything like last weekend, my weight will go up, but it is certainly on a downward trend. At my lowest this week, I was 8.4 pounds down. That's nothing to sneeze at.
Tomorrow, I have to get up super duper early - the baton competition season begins. Prissy has her team event, her marching event, her compulsaries (which is new for her), her presentation, her solo, and her dance twirl (which is new for her) individual events. It's a small contest - so, hopefully she does well. But, it begins now. I've been stressing out over the little girls team costumes, and Prissy's individual costumes. The is the first year I've had to worry about it. It's still a little bit stressful - but should be ok.
The only bummer part of this weekend this far is that Bubba has a cold. He was all stuffed up when I picked him up from school on Friday and he was still pretty clogged up today. No fever, just doesn't feel great. He still went to Taekwondo, but is just generally a little slower.
That's all - I'll give a report tomorrow on the competition! Wish Prissy luck!
