Odds and Ends

I don't know about y'all, but I'm so not ready for Christmas. I thought I was close...and if I think about it all logically, I probably am. But logic isn't factoring into my current panic. So I'm going to keep this short and sweet today and just touch on a bunch of stuff that doesn't really deserve a blog of it's own.

How is it that no matter my effort one of my kids still ends up with more presents than the other? I even have a frickin' list and somehow it still happens. What's funny is that it seems to change. Last year it was Baby Girl. This year it's Sweet Pea. Which means one more trip to an overcrowded shopping center.

And along those same lines, we visited Santa's Village last night with the girls. Baby Girl filled out a letter to Santa...which had only 1 item on it that her original list had. Most of the stuff I'd never even heard of. Luckily I need to pick up a few more things for her. Unfortunately, I have a feeling the thing she put as #1 is probably the hot item of the year and completely unavailable. *bangs head on desk*

Yesterday I found out that Bring It On - my Feb release - is being made into an audio book. I have to admit to a certain amount of giddiness at learning this. Someone's going to be reading my words aloud. I'm debating whether or not I'm going to listen to it. I've bought audio books before and part of me wants to hear them say my name as the author.

And the cover for my March release - Take It Down - is finally here. Yay! I have to say I love this cover.

Do you have any odds and ends you want to share? Are you ready for Christmas? Are you one of those people with all the presents wrapped and waiting under the tree?

I don't have any more odds and ends but I do have some cleaning and washing the dog to do and I have a really bad headache.
last night I was up unil midnight decorating over 100 Christmas cookies for my daughter. Next year I am going on strike.
As for the Christmas list I learned early to mail that letter to Santa Claus early and the kids couldn't change their minds. Also I shortened the Santa wish list to 3 gift because that is the amount the Wise men brought to baby Jesus.

Smart woman, gigi!

I'm pretty much ready, but dreading the arrival of all the relatives. I'll have visitors all next week, and they seem to be adding more and more activities to the time they'll be here. Sigh... Next year I'm going to pretend to run away for Christmas.

I like Gigi's idea too!

I have one for the odds and ends list. My fabu bosses gave us tomorrow afternoon off! And since I only work afternoons, I get the whole day off! I plan to bake and do laundry and start packing.

Hope you get that shopping done with a minimum of aggravation. Traffic has been CRAZY lately.

I LOVE that idea, Gigi! I definitely think I'm going to use that next year. And I hope your headache is better. :-(

Can I run with you, Angel?

Yay on the extra day off, PM! I was cursing the traffic myself yesterday. Some idiot almost rear ended me on my way home from work today. If I'd stopped suddenly I might have cut him some slack, but he just barreled up behind me like I wasn't even there.
