Holiday Mayhem

Well, it feels absolutely amazing to be home. Seriously...

We passed about a bajillion pile-ups on the freeway on the way home. It was absolutely ridiculous. Driving 15mph for half an hour when the speed limit is 80mph really puts a wrinkle in the 'let's get home quick' plans. Of course our dog was a royal pain in the ass in the car and decided that no, he must be held in the passenger's arms for the remainder of the trip. What a little poo head.

Anyway, Thanksgiving was fun, there was some family awkwardness as usual and lots of deliciously fattening food. My mom made some super gross stuff for turkey day so I was really glad I dragged Hubbs to BW3's for some wings and football before hand.

Now I'm sitting here studying for the math placement test I have to take tomorrow for this dream job o' mine that I've applied for and really laughing at myself for being so completely horrible at math. Maybe it's not funny... but some of the time, it really makes me giggle. I'm on to memorizing the multiplication table now. Remember that thing? I didn't! lol. Fun times all around up in here!

I have orientation of Friday for my fancy new substitute teaching job and am looking forward to that. Hopefully it will distract me whilst I await the outcome of my application fest to the job of my dreams.

I didn't get any writing done over the holiday, so basically I have 4 days to write about 20,000 words... that can be done, right? Why did I do this to myself? lol. NaNoWriMo, I will conquer you yet!

I'm also staying up late because as of 11/26 (midnight of course) my phone is eligible for an upgrade with Verizon, magically enough, 11/26 is Cyber Monday!!! (insert Kermit flail here) Really hoping to snag an awesome phone for next to nothing because I am seriously over my blackberry that shuts itself off randomly and refuses to load anything and generally makes me want to throw it against a wall. Wish me luck! 

I hope everything went well with all of you and I'm psyched to actually stick out this whole NaBloPoMo thing with all of you!


  1. Good luck with snagging your phone! I didn't do my usual Black Friday shopping this year as so much had to be done here this weekend. But my car and boiler are repaired now, so maybe I will shop online today! Good luck with your studying! (I hate math..ugh..) Hope it leads to your dream job...

  2. lol! I want to get a new phone too! I have a One X, but now I want the Samsung Note ll. I hope you get your phone. And yes , I'm shopping up a storm.

  3. I did indeed score my phone, I knew staying up till it was officially Cyber Monday was a great idea! lol. Free 2-day shipping ftw!
