    Me too! I have three sets - hearts, ducks, and PENGUIN! The penguin one is black with PENGUINS FOR FEETS!

    Also, heated blankets. They're amazing.

    I also have footie pajamas. Mine are zebra striped. And the feet are zebras. They're pretty rad.

    I re-tweaked my knee this morning because this guy did not look like he was going to stop for the crosswalk. Now I'm back to semi-hobbling around. And on top of that, I'm freezing and shouldn't be and feeling like I'm going to cry at the drop of a hat but it's not PMS time yet.

    I DON'T KNOW HOW TO FEEL SOMEONE TELL ME!

    I'm just having a seriously bummer night.

    My Jeep went kurplutz for good. Gone, no more while I was driving to school yesterday for a big test. Cool, whatever. Got there on time, no issues. Getting everywhere with one vehicle while we sort out everything for the new truck. Thank god we have an emergency fund and got preapproved for a vehicle loan. Dang nab that now I can't cut back on work hours because we need that extra money to put back into our savings.

    Look on my microecon page to see my grade from last week. Another F. Fabulous. Seriously, why am I struggling so much with this? Every week, I legit put the time in to do all of my reading and actually study and watch the videos and I don't feel like I'm getting an ounce out of this class. I will be so lucky if I pass with a core credit grade. I've got a test for it tomorrow and I'm honestly not even studying anymore tonight because I either frikken know it or I don't.

    PMS + dirty house + stressed out hubby + stressed out, overworked Meagan. I seriously just need a week off of everything to get caught up. I knew going back to school and working (now full time) and keeping up with the house and family was going to be difficult. Seriously, all I ever feel like doing is sitting on Netflix and FB and ignoring my life.

    Sorry for the novel. I'm just... guh. Obviously needing to vent. I can't wait until this semester is over and we are on to the next with both classes actually making steps towards my real goal.

    I just tried to Zumba with the kinect. I have discovered two things.

    1.) Giant puppy running around the living room does not help the kinect function.
    2.) I can NOT dance. I have no hand/feet/leg coordination. I'll be going, "LOOK, I'M DOING IT" with my legs and then realize my arms aren't moving.

    le sigh

    Friend and I were met by a sketchy dude today. He was vey obviously toasted on something. Apparently, after leaving us, he tried to mug the guy he went to (I was watching him follow him, assuming he was asking for a smoke.)

    We ducked into the bar we were beside, when the other guy he tried to mug ducked in amd told us.

    Thank god my friend was there, I truly think he didnt try anything with us because there was 2 of us. I was technically closing alone, and should have been walking home alone.

    We waited til we couldn't see him and went on our ways, being super keen and ready to dial 911 if we even saw him.

    I've been trying to tell work we need more than one person on closing shift. This is just adding to reasons.

    Period started today after working out. Boo. I mean, I knew it was coming any minute because I took meds to induce it and finished them 2 days ago, but still. Boo. At least it'll be 3 months before I have to deal with it again after this is over.

    There are way too many bosses under one roof in my office. It's a small office and there are freaking 5 levels of management in it and they are all PMSing, or something. Good grief, the drama that unfolded around LUNCH was freaking ridiculous.


    A group of us normally order lunch 4 or 5 days a week. I was planning on bringing my lunch today, but forgot it. So, we all planned on ordering from the Mexican place across the road. Now, my boss is normally in with us on ordering, his 2nd & 3rd level bosses get their freaking undies in a twist if we don't invite them to order with us, so when ever they are around, I try to stop by their office and just go "Hey, we're ordering from X, do you want anything?" and they usually decline, but they like feeling included. If that's all it takes to keep them happy, I can do that. Today, the 3rd level boss (my 4th level) walks out of my bosses office and I go, "Hey we're ordering from the Mexican place, do you want anything?"

    Before I can blink 3 times, he has decided to buy food for the office and instead of Mexican it's Italian. Then MY boss comes out of his office and goes, "Yeah, he was in my office to tell me that our team seems too focused on watching TV (because they put 3 - 52" inch TVs up) and free food." I'm like, "WTF, we were ordering Mexican and invited him. He could have said "no." He could have said, "Sure, I'll take a burrito. Here is $7. He could have said a lot of things that didn't including buying lunch for everyone. That's Bull Shark." And they say women don't know what we want. I make a heck of a lot more sense than that messed up situation.

    My head still spins when I think back to it. I may, or may not, have told one of my co-workers that I thought the two top level managers in the office had worked together so long that their cycles and synced up and they were just looking for reasons to be pissy with everyone and I'd be much happier when they stopped PMSing. Men!!

    Sally is gassy and bloated. She ate this morning and no vomit, she is her normal self in every other way, but she is burping, farting and her tummy does not have the tuck that it normally has. The vet advises me to bring her in if she is not better by tomorrow... Because enough animal incidents haven't happened already this week. Maybe I should just start automatically dividing my pay checks between my two vets and Pet Supplies Plus and get it over with....

    I love my critters, but when it rains it pours!!

    Oh, and the house is a complete disaster....Anyone want to come clean it for me? I can pay you in canned dog food and dirty towels....

    My body is falling apart. I've had this stupid cold for a week now - I'm congested and I have a hard time taking good, "satisfying" breaths, but the most part is the persistent cough that just won't let up. I'm hacking all over the place. And then I end up getting a headache from coughing so much. And being at work and trying to talk to clients when I'm stopping to cough every 5 seconds is getting annoying.

    If that's not enough, I woke up this morning and my feet and legs were like on FIRE they itch so much. Then as the day progressed it got worse and my arms and hands are itchy. Here we are over 12 hours later and I'm still itchy. wtf is this all about? It's annoying! I don't want this to be a weekend where I have to go sit in urgent care.
