My life doesn’t seem to becoming any less chaotic, and there is no end in sight. Somehow I manage to keep going. I am a little worried about tomorrow, I am going from one job to the other. I have no idea how long I will be there and the girl is not happy that she has to watch The Flash by herself.
I can’t believe that I am still awake, I was up until midnight last night addressing Christmas cards. The girl and I also put the tree up yesterday, I am only putting up the tree. It’s a little light in the middle of this big mess. I need to find a piece of fabric or a sheet to use as a make shift tree skirt, I wasn’t digging that out either. It’s an odd year.
Oh….wait til you hear what the girl did yesterday. We were at Joann Fabrics and she really wanted this wrapping paper with dinosaurs wearing little Santa hats. “I can wrap my secret Santa present in it for school and you can use it to wrap all of my presents.” I broke down and bought it. We went to Hallmark so I could take the ornaments out of layaway and she was begging me for DC wrapping paper. I told her no because I just bought her wrapping paper. She takes out her wallet and is getting ready to pay for it when the girl at the register said ” do you want to use your moms Gold Crown card on this?” “Does she get points if I do?” said the girl with attitude. The salesgirl said “yes” with a smile and my kid says “NO” The salesgirl said “yikes!” with a look of shock on her face. Yep it was funny how I took so long to open her door the rest of the afternoon. She isn’t a brat often but it’s still there, just like it’s there in all of us I guess.
I hope all of you are hanging in there during this crazy hectic time of year……Zia
