It's beginning to look a lot like...

How is everyone? I'm at one of my best friend's house (she's the one who moved to CA) cat sitting this weekend for her mom. One of three orange kitties, Tigger comes inside only for me :) He was at the door two minutes after I pulled up. I stopped at Safeway after work and got a frozen CPK pizza and liter mountain dew and my favorite Honey Bee Vanilla Haagen Daaz and watched Christmas Story on dvd. I'm excited for next week cuz this same friend gets into town and will be here for a week and a half. And I totally forgot to bring my PJ bottoms tonight so I looked around in her basically empty closet and managed to find a pair of her brown sweat pants and they are a perfect alternative :) hehe...so soft...

A great tip for everyone- I bought this kit at Bed Bath & Beyond to make paw print ornaments for your pets. Chiquita and Rosie made theirs to send to our family friends in CA. It's mess free but it wasn't so easy to get the "perfect" print. Chiquita didn't like having to hold her paw down so it took me a few attempts but I finally got a print I was happy with and they are dried and I just have to make sure they're wrapped and packed so they don't get broken in transit to CA. I'm going to buy another one tomorrow to make one for my friend's cat that she had to leave here when she moved. He's a little stinker sometimes about sitting still and what not so it could be tricky too :)

That's just one thing on my list tomorrow. I'm going home early in the AM to pick up my sis and take her along to get some of the shopping she needs to get done too. I've got to hit up the mall for Target and Sears (see what apt. related items I can buy with my $10 coupon) also Payless as there is a pair of shoes I saw online that I liked so there are two different stores nearby I can check to see. My sister needs to go to Borders too and for me chauffering her around :) if it's not raining/snow showers, she'll get to hold the giant rope thingy down if I go to put air in my tires since that thing is so heavy for one person when you're trying to pull it around to the other side of the car to put air in.

I found out from my best friend today that a good friend of our good friend is back in the hospital with a brain tumor that he had before that paralyzed him the first time and was terrible and all that he beat the odds and recovered from...well it's all back and now pressing against his brain I think and so now he can't see and it's affecting his speech and what not. I went to elementary school with him. We weren't friends or anything per se but it's still sad and someone my age that I know isn't really expected to live past next week probably. So it's just one of those things that makes me grateful that I am okay and my life is hardly bad.

Anyway, work went by fast (as it usually does) I was a machine today, opening and closing cases left and right (investigations the HR generalist have looked into or are going to,etc) in addition to opening about 50 cases in the system for a bunch of PT admin people throughout the co. that are being termed next Thursday (I know, the timing is terrible) I'm sure a handful of them will be calling into the office next week and I'll be there first point of contact :) Merry Christmas eh?
