Oh Christmas Spirit, Where art thou?

I can't believe the year is almost over. 19 days til Christmas and guess who hasn't even started buying presents yet? yep, Miss procrastination herself. I swear I should have a crown or something that identifies me as Queen of Procrastination. It's not that i'm lazy either, it's just that there is so much to do, I get overwhelmed and don't know where to start and while I'm deciding, I end up playing on Farmville. As you can imagine, that doesn't exactly help things but I'm like Level 94 or something on there now lol. Which might actually prove that I procrastinate TOO much. It's a vicious cycle I tell ya.

Anyway, we still haven't gotten a tree but I did kick off "Fudge Season" on Thanksgiving Day. I keep torturing my sister with it too. So I'm not just a procrastinator, I'm also mean. In my defense, I'm the big sister and it's acceptable for me to torture my little sisters no matter how old they are. It's the rules. Who am I to argue with that? *I* didn't make them up.

On the upside for her, we'll see her this weekend and she'll finally get some fudge and be happy for a few days. I also have a date with my favorite Squooshy sometime this week to watch the Grinch together. I need to make plans with my other sister as well to do something similar. That's my favorite part of the holidays.....seeing the kids' faces light up as they talk about Santa or what they're hoping to get for Christmas. My kids are all older now and they don't get as excited about it anymore. I can't wait to have some Grandkids to spoil rotten!

On another front, I found out yesterday that I may have a disk out of place in my neck. I've known for several years that there was something wrong with a nerve in my neck and even went on medication for it for about a year til it finally quit bothering me. For whatever reason, it's back now though. I went to the doctor yesterday and because I am now losing feeling in my pinkie and ring finger it has been determined that I probably have more nerve damage than originally thought or I have a disk out of place that is pressing on the nerve. Deep Joy. So in 2 weeks I have to go get a CAT scan done to see what's going on and also to check out my kidneys because I'm having trouble with them again too. I'm only 42 but I feel like I'm 80 sometimes lol. So keep a good thought out for me please. I truly truly hate being on any kind of pain medication but if I don't take it I have very little use of my right arm, so for now there's not much choice. Hopefully it's something that can be fixed.

Well, it's time to go to work. Hopefully there will be lots of work to do and I can make a bajillion dollars. Hey...........I can dream!
