I wrote out Christmas cards yesterday, and wrapped some presents, all while watching football. (Go Eagles).

I was preparing to get my father's last present, but goofed, so I had to email some people to fix it (hopefully they can).... talk about a vague sentence.

Taking my car in for service tomorrow morning. I'll have to take something to keep me occupied while I'm there. Maybe a book.

Must find something to do...

Holiday coming up...

As Christmas rapidly approaches, and I do my Christmas shopping, trying not to forget anyone, I can't help but be stressed out a little bit. My dad's side of the family is coming to visit, which is only a few people, but 3 extras dogs. I'm a dog person in general, but when my aunt's dogs see Spencer (or visa versa) they all go crazy. While this in itself isn't so much of an issue (aside from the occasional knocked over item), the visiting dogs tend to teach things to Spencer that he doesn't normally do (beg for food, jump on the couch, and whining). So, in short, while I do like seeing my aunt's and uncles, it's always a stressful time with everyone getting together. Oh, and there's going to be a cat too.

In general, the whole thing sounds piddly, and I should just suck it up and deal with it, but it's much easier to live with Spencer when I'm not constantly trying to keep him out of trouble.

I also got a call from my mother last night, who thought Travis and I were going to PA for Christmas, which isn't the case, as people are coming up here. This is kind of a bummer, as she's leaving town the day after Christmas for a couple weeks. I would like to see her off, but I don't think that's going to happen, so I just sit here feeling guilty about it.

At least through all this, I think I have 90% of my shopping done. There is something else I want to get T, but it's a choice between 2 things... and I don't know if he really wants one of them, so I guess I should go with the other! :)
