I am so fucking stressed out right now I think I'm going to just ... FREAK OUT!!!! Of course, my shitty attitude could also be attributed to the fact that I ate armloads of garbage this weekend. Fuck, what IS my problem? If it's sweet and within arm's reach it was in my mouth. Stress much? I will say that our holiday party at work on friday rocked. Aaron came down and had a moose burger with all of us, it was also catered and some people brought stuff in too. I received a lovely ornament from a gal I don't get to see very much, but listens to a great deal of my whining over satchel. :-) For that I am thankful! Our owner surprised us with a bonus as well as two paid days off (after christmas and new year's) as well as coats and shirts ... we were spoiled this year! I was completely impressed... very good day. Two paid days of leave is probably the best gift you could get from your employer!

Back to my bitching, I just got off the phone with my mom after bawling over my to-do list. For your reading pleasure:

beyond all that I think I'm forgetting something. Part of the frustration is that some things can't be done until other's are completed. My mom offered to take over some of the stuff, but I have a hard time delegating which is my own damn fault...but hey, my webpage, my bitch session. I also still am under the weather and feeling like shit shit shit. I want to go home and go to bed. I think I got way in over my head with the whole treat baskets thing this year, and next year will NOT be doing it. Add to my freaking out about the stuff to get done this week the fact that we fly back in on Friday Jan 02, too late to attend the appeals hearing regarding my aunt's custody of the girls (please send good thoughts), but the next morning we will be picking up our new bedroom set, then we will need to assemble said bedroom set in our room, take the old one to storage, then we have the wedding show on sunday...AND BY THE WAY, WHEN WE GET BACK WE'LL HAVE 10 MONTHS UNTIL WE GET MARRIED, AND NOTHING IS DONE! We don't have a church or a reception site yet, school starts on the 5th (I AM STILL FUCKING WAITLISTED FOR TWO OF MY CLASSES) and I have a dental appointment that monday afternoon for a filling. ALSO! Anyone following along at all will note I haven't spoken of my 'female troubles' in a while, well I got a referral but of course not until February 13th. FUCKING. MARVELOUS. stick a fork in me, because I'm done.

I have four dozen more of these fuckers to frost today

I was sleeping on the couch friday night and Ben was asleep on my chest, I turned over and he never budged.

He is rarely so cuddly like this; he'll cuddle on his terms, but if you move he's usually out of there quick. So sweet :-)
