I need chocolate stat!  
When the least stressful part of your day is finishing up Christmas shopping, then your day is stressful.  Ostensibly I have the day off, because I'm working this weekend, which means I work seven straight days and my next day off is Christmas Eve.  ~*~*~  Things that are stressing me out:
  • My sister and I are buying a house.  We're smack in the middle of the paperwork/inspection/mortgage process.
  • We are having our big family holiday get-together tomorrow.  I have to clean.
  • I decided to make presents for co-workers and am nowhere near done and I don't know when I'll finish?
  • Applying for a freelance job for extra money so I can afford, like, the internet and nice food in my new house IF I EVER GET TO MOVE IN THIS IS STARTING TO FEEL LIKE AN IMPOSSIBILITY.
  • Family dra-llama.
Anywho, if you basically don't see me for awhile, that's why.  Cheers, babies!

Meh all this at once is tough!
I hope it will all work out and that you can tell all amazing stories from the family get together, how happy your co-workers were about the presents and how awesome the new house is. And I cross my fingers for the freelance job and that the family dra-llama goes away asap.

Aw, thanks! The family get-together wasn't great, but it's over now, so that's good. And I got all my financial paperwork in, so that's another thing off my list. I'm feeling much better today. Friday was kind of an overload day.

Your icon!

Sorry that the family thing wasn't so good, but at least it's over and I hope you won't have to deal with it over the holidays (or ever) again.
Glad that you're feeling better =)

*hihi* I love the 'Keep calm' stuff, have a dozen icons saved and am still deciding which I will add to my userpics.

You can doo eet! I'd say drop the coworker presents if you need to. Or shift to hersheys kisses wrapped in tissue and ribbon or something. :) And then when this is over you will be in your own house, yayyyy!!! :D

Yeah, the work presents could be given after Christmas, absolutely, but I just got irritated by the fact that I started them IN OCTOBER and still ended up running out of time. I might get done this morning and tomorrow morning, though, so we'll see.

I'm so looking forward to being in my own house, you have no idea.

Nothing more stressful than house-buying but there is an end to it. Hope everything staightens out soon!

Thanks! I think Friday was just an exceptionally bad hump, sort of a perfect storm day for me. I'm back on my regular stoic emotional keel.

*Hugs* Good luck with the moving and house buying process. I hope your Christmas is a happy one and hopefully not so stressful, may the dra-llama go out to pasture or get lost somewhere with the three wisemen. :P

(P.S. Deanna in my icon has some chocolate to share! ^_^ )

Thanks, babe. (And good to see you!) Well, once we move out, there goes the drama, so yeah...we're looking forward to that. ;)

Thanks! Christmas should be happy. I just had one of those days, you know. But I probably will be a bit more scarce on LJ the next few weeks regardless.

Yeah, we're pretty excite. And it's time, too; there are way too many grown adults co-habitating in this house. Lots of tension.
