Christmas is exhausting!

Is it just me or is Christmas exhausting?! Just the shopping alone is tiring but when you add in hiding presents from the kids, wrapping, staying up till midnight to get the gifts under the tree without the kids knowing, waking up early Christmas morning to get the coffee made before the children trample you on the way to the tree, opening toy after toy, getting a band-aid after cutting your finger on said toys' titanium lined plastic packaging, dragging the family to some random relative's house for dinner, dragging family home, and finding that last spare inch of room left on the toy shelf for this year's hottest (yet soon the be forgotten) toy, I am exhausted!

It's still not over for me. I have 10 bags of random stuff piled up in the living room that I have no idea what to do with. I guess I get to use that Wal-Mart gift card that Aunt Loretta gave me to buy more storage boxes...what I always wanted!

Christmas wasn't a bust though. I got to spend time with all sides of my family, I got a diamond ring from the hubby (too big...gotta get sized), and I got a pink Kitchen-Aid stand mixer that I have been drooling over for two years now. I'm going to use it to make an orange flavored bundt cake for New Year's Eve.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and that your New Year is full of hope and maybe a few resolutions that you plan on keeping.

Thursday, December 3, 2009 My newest venture on the internet

I just signed up for Swagbucks two days ago and I already have a Paypal gift card coming to me! That is why I had to write a post about it. I use the Swagbucks toolbar instead of my Google one and I win 'bucks'...pretty simple. They are kind of slow coming but it is free and you get prizes. I cannot think of a better deal than that. I'm hoping to save up enough 'bucks' to earn a few Amazon gift cards...there is a ridiculously expensive purse that I want. A few months with Swagbucks, and that purse is mine...muah ha ha (evil laugh).
