Christmas thoughts...and snakes

August 24th, 2011 at 03:01 am

Note to self. The cat does not often entertain itself. It is too social. When it is playing alone for extended periods, something isnt right.

So I checked on my very happy, playful cat...and he had a new friend. A SNAKE. IN MY HOUSE. Thankfully, it was a small friend...only about a foot long. So I grabbed a towel and scooped it up and sent them both outside to play. Egads.

I decided not to sit at my desk and work at lunch today. Instead, I went to a little mexi restaurant and treated myself to a full service lunch. While I waited, I worked on my Christmas budget and list. I have to stick to my budget this year, and since I am getting ready to start back to school, I want to plan as much as possible. I love either finding a good deal, or finding the perfect gift at a decent price. I know my time will be limited once school starts again, so I want to plan and allow myself plenty of time- so that Im not rushing and splurging at the last minute.

My lunch and tip, $17- but I only had a baked potato when I got home, so I dont feel too it was a much enjoyed treat today.

I have to say, planning for CHristmas when it is 90+ outside feels a little odd, but I am a big kid when it comes to surprising my loved ones with that 'perfect' gift on Christmas morning. Smile

    LOL _ I Agree - a quiet, missing cat is an indicator of something going on Smile

    I love to find the perfect gift that the receiver didn't even know they wanted.
