Packing Nightmare

Every time I go on a trip or to camp or something, the thing that I procrastinate about and put off the most is the one thing that I absolutely have to do.

 Pack.

It takes me forever because I have to have enough room and I don't want my bag to be overflowing with clothes I really don't need to take. So I arrange and rearrange everything a few times until that feeling of satisfaction comes around.

Then I rearrange again.

 So today was the day. I sat around a long time looking at my bag and my closet, but I am DONE! (With the clothes.) I still have to get sheets and blankets and towels and shampoo and that stuff together. But I guess I'll save that fun task for tomorrow.

Merry Christmas!

Just My Luck...

   Well, we got out of school on Thursday!! And it would be nice to chill for once but of course, I have walking pneumonia! Which just continues my neverending tradition of getting sick or having something go wrong over a break from school. Landon and I went to the ER on Friday night around 10, put on our matching hospital gowns and sat there and waited in the rooms (seperated by a curtain) next to eachother. He had already been on medication for it for a week, but since it wasn't going away, Mom dragged him along to the hospital too. we both had x-rays and I was declared to have the same thing he did.
   Yesterday was the worst because I felt like crap!! I slept from 12 am to 1 pm and only got up once to eat dinner. Everything hurt from my head to my legs and I just spent most of the time taking light naps. So I basically spent my whole day in bed.
 I have been on my meds for two days and I am starting to feel a lot better! Which is great because I'm leaving the day after Christmas for a semi-family reunion in North Carolina. We're renting a condo next to my uncle's right on the beach, and though it will be too cold for swimming or laying in the sun, just being near the beach is enough for me!

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

The crazed shoppers are out, there are idiotic drivers, bumper-to-bumper traffic, people fighting over the last Tickle-Me-Elmos, people spending what little they have so that their bratty kids can have that new gaming system, and stores are all marking up some prices to get the most out of this month.

That's right. It's the season of love, giving, and happiness once again.

Now, I might have overexaggerated a little, but people do get overcome with the holiday craze. I haven't even started my Christmas shopping yet! It is such a pain to go out to Turkey Creek and be forced into the mix with thousands of people looking for present to give as well.

The kind of shoppers that annoy me the most are those 'I-better-stock-my-cart-with-all-the-toys-in-the-toy-aisle-before-someone-else-does' moms. They have boxes and boxes of toys stacked up in their cart and take an hour to check out! And you know exactly who I'm talking about.

Personally, I LOVE Christmas. Everyone is 10 times happier in the month of December than any other month. There's just something magical about the feeling of Christmas.
