What a day!
Lots of shopping with my mom, dad and my brother Matt at Yorkdale shopping mall.

My feet hurt!

But there are lots of good presents in the hands of the right people now. YAY!

And I've made lots of decisions about the presents I'm giving. Double YAY!

And I'm going to decorate my Xmas tree tomorrow and do Christmas baking with Sarah!

Could things get better?

Had a LOVELY dinner with my friend Jane last night. I haven't talked to her in months. So it was nice to catch up. We just talked, talked, talked. At the greek restaurant, at my house, over tea.

It was great.

She gave me a nice gift card for Sephoria. So now I get to go pamper myself and buy either make up that doesn't irritate the excema around my eyes (good times, I'll tell ya) or yummy smelling things. Love Sephoria.

I also gave my counsellor a gift card from Starbucks. I notice that he drinks it too, so I thought it would be a nice thing.

Have gift cards totally saved us from gifts that we hate, or WHAT?!
However, to be fair, I do really enjoy spending a lot of time and care picking out just the right sweater... And opening that surprise? well, there's just nothing like it.

Sleep: I need you.

Please come visit me at work in my cubicle and we'll curl up under my desk.

I had a lovely dinner with my friend, Jess, and her boyfriend. They're so cute together; it makes me so happy to see them so happy.

Tomorrow night I'm having dinner with my friend Jane. I'm excited to see her - I haven't talked to her in months. Weird how that happens.

I love that Christmas can bring people together who haven't seen each other in while. I guess while that's happening, it also makes things more busy. Hence, why I missed my friend Tree's Christmas party last weekend. But at least I finally got to drop off my gift for the baby. I can't believe it took me so long!

It appears that I won't have Christmas with Alex until he comes over to my family's house on Christmas night. Our Christmas in our own house might end up being closer to New Years. Which is OK since I don't really know what to get him anyway.

Speaking of the importance of friendships, I've had two really nice comments this week: one person said that I make everything more fun at work. And another girl said thank you to me for all my support and said that she'd learned a lot from me.

Isn't that the nicest thing?

Christmas certainly does make everything more busy.

At work, I did some online shopping on my lunch hour. Then hurried up to get all my work done in time to go to a tenant Christmas party at which I won a PRIZE! (A mug and a book, so I'm not freaking out, but this IS the second time I've won a draw in the past while. Chanceuse!)

After tutoring tonight, I came right home and continued my christmas baking. I actually made 3 things tonight. And cleaned up afterwards.

Pretty impressive!
But that's why I'm still up at 11:30pm -- past my bedtime!

Tomorrow night I have a Christmas get-together with a friend of mine. Hence, the baking frenzy.

I have really felt Christmas sneak up on me.

I don't seem to have a lot of time for Christmas shopping. I think it's because I missed the One of a Kind Show, where I often buy my best gifts. Sad. And then the homemade back-up gifts take time and I just have been too busy to get my act together!

Too bad, I absolutely LOVE Christmas. I love Christmas shopping. I love Christmas decorating. But I haven't managed to put the lights on the tree yet. All I've got up is my wreath on my door.

Since when did Cathy become Christmas-dysfunctional?

I had a bit of a meltdown today.

I'm not really certain what happened.

It could have had something to do with the fact that I got home late and didn't sleep well and then woke up to my parents calling from the airport -- ohygosh, I had forgotten to pick them up! They'd been calling since about 2am and it was 7:30am. I rushed to the airport, feeling pretty sick about it.

I didn't get much sleep, but after hearing about their awesome trip (I'll try to get up a photo album of their photos soon), they went on home and I had breakfast made for me (yay!) and I took a 2-hour nap. I felt a little better and the doors were being weather-stripped when I came back down. (YAY!)

I sat down to do bills. And suddenly I realized that there were all sorts of weird things going on. I hadn't paid them on time, or hadn't paid enough, or couldn't figure out how much was owed or why two amounts didn't jive...

And I cried.

Thinking about it now, I'm still getting emotional about it and I don't know why. Bill paying should not be an emotional issue. It's not like I don't have the money to pay (that would be emotional). It's not like I'm avoiding it, running from creditors, or anything like that.

I just feel like everything's very complicated and I got overwhelmed.
