CP Secret Santa!

I participated in the Spring 2011 CP Secret Santa and I got my Secret Santa gift a few days before Christmas. Whew, that was close. I was gettig sad that I wasn't going to get anything!

I was kind of expecting something Disney thrown in, but it's okay. I'm happy that I got this cook book! I didn't realize that it was alcohol related baking (I just recently got into Sparking Wine) but it's okay, the recipes look really really good. I can only imagine how alcohol will enhance the flavors. I'm excited to try this out when I get to Florida!
So thank you to my Secret Santa!

I didn't get a lot for Christmas this year, which is fine. I don't know how I'm going to bring the stuff I already have with me! I did get a Nook case, a MBP case and Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce from my husband though. I was touched he set out to look for the purple satin MBP case that I've been eyeing. I'm convinced he listens more than he acts like. I got a Moogle plushie from my uncle and aunt in law from FFXI. I was so excited when I opened it, I actually squealed lol. I LOVE FFXI! I'm thinking of getting back on when I get to Florida! Even though I probably won't have a lot of time to play.

So it's now NYE and I can't believe how fast time has flown. I tried cleaning some of my room the last few days and it's just so... hopeless. Seriously. I don't know what I'm doing or what I'm going to do, but I do know I'm going to start packing up my clothes today. Good thing it's freezing here, I can pack up my lighter clothes and now worry too much about it. I also have to decide which books to bring with me and to pack up my makeup. My mom also got me a good luck dragon to bring with me. I absolutely love dragons and I love that my mom always gets me jade and ivory dragons. I wish I could bring them all with me, but some of them are way too big and I'm scared they'll break! The one she gave me to bring is tiny so hopefully I can bring it on the plane.

I also finally got my Earplanes! Now my nightmares can stop! Whew. 

I'm still nervous about leaving, but I'm excited to be at Disney already and in a whole different state!

Happy New Years everyone!

It's the most wonderful time.... of the year!!!

Or well, it's suppose to be!

December for the last two years have been hectic. This time last year I was running around and planning finishing touches for my wedding and this year I'm running around trying to get things done for this move. Next year I plan to enjoy the holidays and put everything on hold! Well besides you know, work and school and you know, mandatory stuff like that.

I haven't started packing yet. I know. Dammit. When will I get around to it?!

I did vacuum my room though, whoo! I always dread it and it's never as bad as I think it is. Weird, right? Now I'm stalling on washing my bed sheets. I hate washing my bed sheets. Grrr.

On to happier things... I've bought almost all my Christmas gifts.
  • Mom
  • Dad
  • Husband's mom
  • Husband's dad
  • Sister in law
  • Sister in law (younger)
  • Brother in law
  • Brother in law
  • Brother in law
  • Friend (missing one thing)
  • Friend
  • Classmate
  • Classmate
  • Husband
  • Ex boyfriend (missing one thing)
  • Cousin

My husband has a big family. But thankfully the only person I really have to worry about is my sister in law (not the younger one) and his mom. Mostly. My ex gets a gift cause we're still really really close friends and he owes me Monsters Inc from like, 3 freakin years ago. So we made a deal. This year he sends me Monsters Inc and I'll send him socks (hey he asked for socks)! He's in the military so he's a few states away. Now I just have to worry about my two classmates, my friend and my cousin. Which I will all cover on Monday. Husband has to get the second gift for his parents, which again, will be covered on Monday. He also finally ordered my gift last night. Hopefully it does get here on Tuesday. Man, I had to decide between a book or  a Chocobo reading a book. Damn him for making me choose lol. I was thinking of getting him a second gift, but what do you get someone who has everything?! I'm sure he had the same problem with me but there's a ton of stuff I want and him, not so much. OOH. I just came up with an idea!!! Whoot! I hope he'll like it!

I sent out both my Secret Santa gifts last week. I don't know if I received any since they were sent to my mother in law's (my parents get mad when I get too many packages, they assume I bought things. My MIL however, doesn't really care. She just stacks them up and hands them to me lol). I'm a little worried because I haven't heard anything from my CP Secret Santa :\. 

I still have a bunch of cleaning and organizing to do. Trying not to pile up too much on my plate everyday or I'll get a stress headache and that isn't very fun.

35 Days left...

It's now December and I have less than 60 days left. Still haven't packed. I guess I don't really want to because I don't really want to admit I'm leaving home. Sounds silly right? I have this amazing chance to live my dream job and I'm here, homesick. I'm a little envious of my husband at the moment. He's beyond excited, he's not homesick... but then again this time last year he was coming home from Basic Training and I guess anything is better than Basic Training...

I made a list of things I'm going to have to buy and pack. Well the packing list was a rough outline, I'm going to have to think about it a little more, I have a habit of over packing and when you're flying, that probably is not the best idea. From what I hear there isn't a Target nearby so I'm gonna have to stock up on my Target only holy grail products and bring those with me. You never realize how much useless crap you have until you have to move. Isn't that weird? 

I can't believe how close we are to Christmas! I mailed off one of my two Secret Santa packages yesterday (in some in the middle of NOWHERE post office. Seriously, the mailing office was the smallest I've ever seen and there was only one employee!) and I'm going to mail the second one before class next week. I finally found mini Lotso bears at the Disney Store! Thaaaank goodness! The one I bought my Secret Santa didn't smell like strawberries. So my husband was on the search for one that smells like strawberry. He's cute when he's determined over something that isn't his problem! And since Disney Store right now has buy one get one free plushies, I got a mini strawberry Lotso for myself. I didn't like his character, but man he smells good! I wanted a medium The Clawwww alien plushie but husband decided it would be better if I waited til we get to Florida and that I'm cuddling with Cheshire on the plane. Period. Hmph, fine.

I've been having plane nightmares. See, normal people have nightmares that the plane is going to crash. I get nightmares that I'll forget my Earplane ear plugs. Yes, it's true. That's my worst flying fear. I get insane pain in my ears when the plane lands. Like OMG-MY-EARS-ARE-BLEEDING pain. I think it has to do with a damage tissue in my nostril that I never got fixed... well, I'm paying for it now! My mom tried giving me regular ear plugs and they worked, it's just hard to tell how to get them in your ears. So I looked it up last year, before I had to go fly to Texas for my husband's Basic Training graduation. See, flying with my husband is fine, he knows I get these pains and he usually squeezes the crap out of my ears and lets me dig my nails into his arm. But I was going to fly with my sister in law who has no idea. And I discovered Earplane which is an ear plug designed especially for my reason. Tried it out on the way to Vegas, worked great! I also read the Suddefed is suppose to help too, to help clear up any nasal problems. I'll try that too (wish I had earlier to see if it works).

So other than all that, trying to figure out how to pack everything comfortably and how to pack things away in my room are a priority. On the upside, two more weeks of classes and I'm free! So I'll have more time to focus on packing and getting my paperwork together.

We're almost there guys!
