Aren’t you lucky, you get 2 posts on the same weekend.
Today is about presents and how I dislike shopping for people who don’t know what they want, Take for example my youngest daughter. She gave me a list of dolls she wants (personally I think she is getting too old for them). I did buy her 2 and I know her grandparents and my ex (her mother) have bought her some as well so I am done buying dolls this year! But the other things she wants are, well overpriced for the amount of use they will be getting. She wants an Xbox something or other and they run like $400 or something like that, then you have to buy a game for another $50 and right now shes only here every second weekend and 2 times during the week.
I don’t want her to take it back to her place cause I’ll never see it again and I really can’t justify it 😦 Maybe I could get a game for myself lol but then it would just be in the basement with the other systems collecting dust.I guess I will figure something out; she does have a list of gift cards she wants and can use that might be easier. I know my oldest wants things for her house and I can just picture myself going to the store with her just putting kitchen/house crap into the cart. I do want to get her something just for her and maybe a small something for her boyfriend.
I already know some of the things I am getting which is kinda too bad. I know I asked for them but at the same time I like to be a little surprised. I got a jacket which I kinda had to pick out and try on so that makes a little sense and will be wearing it to a Christmas party this week too. I also saw 2 other things and wasn’t even looking for them, but when you leave a white plastic bag on your dresser that gives the name of the store and you can see the box through the bag “oh well,, one less surprise for me”..
I can’t wait for payday this wee though. I will hopefully be able to finish my shopping for everyone…just have to figure out what to get.
Oh I should mention that malls really stress me out this time of year too, pushy people (warning I push back) and the blaring of crapmas music too – means will bring my headphones when I go shopping haha.
That’s it for now, unless i think of something more…
Yeah yeah I know I am not posting as often as I told myself I would. too much on my mind with Christmas just around the corner and I have only put a dent into my shopping so far (just waiting for my next pay). Plus there is also the fact that my oldest is moving out (not sure if i said that last time; but yeah she is) I helped bring over some boxes to her Boyfriend’s mother place last night so haven’t even seen her place yet. Tomorrow she is coming with a truck for some of the bugger things her and from her mothers place. Oh I guess I didn’t mention that my ex is moving as well….least it;s not much further away and its a left instead of a right at the lights…just don’t know the address yet. I just hope she comes get the desk that’s in the basement.
OK that’s enough of that moving stuff.
I confirmed that I work with idiots. One guy is panicking that he is falling behind on his work so of course I help. And then while doing my own work I see him socializing; seriously?! Yeah my helping him slowed to a bare minimum. I am not sure if the next 2 weeks will be easier or harder as our department is moving 5 floors down so we have to pack up a crap load of files as well as our won stuff (least I don’t have much).
Home life still up and down. My other half had the week off and out of a possible 4 days she didn’t make me supper once but did buy me McDonald’s. I should remember that when I come home from work and yeah on Thursday when I have my work party- guess whose not making supper lol
I think that’s all I had on my mind-at least recently) so glad i could get if off my chest,
Ta-ta for now 🙂
Well looks like its been a month since my last post and while I thought about it; I haven’t done it. I know that I should just do it, it’s just that I like to do it on the laptop.
Whats been going on, well a lot and then a lot of nothing at the same time.
Firstly my oldest is moving out of her moms place and moving into a place with her boyfriend whom she’s only been seeing for 3 months (by the time they move in). I’ve told her that a) I wish that she would have completed school and b) she would have at least have dated him for a while longer. I guess in the back of my mind it is stressing me even though I will be having some extra cash since I am no longer responsible for support payments for her..
Once she has gone I get to move my youngest daughter into her old (and bigger) room and turn her room into a guest room…fun stuff
My life at home is getting better as long as I exude patience and know what to expect. I grew a mustache for movember and got sick of it so I shaved it off…no one noticed (or at least said anything for over 24 hours and yeah it wasn’t my partner either…But at least someone did notice,
Work is going but its going to be harder in the next 3 weeks. One lady is leaving which leaves us more short-staffed and I am thee one whose going to be taking over her work load until we hire more people at the end of November and then there’s the fact that our department is changing floors so by the sounds of it I will have to do most of the packing and unpacking of all the files (Yeah I do expect little helps from the other idiots I work with.
OK that’s all I got for now and hopefully my next blog won’t be another month away….but with the Christmas season coming I hope I don’t get that busy.
