by the way, yes i am a bit coo-coo lol

its dec 22nd, and i have not done Christmas shopping yet :?

ok so iguess by the time this hits blogland it will be the 23rd wich even sounds worst.

i was finally able to go to the store today for 1 1/2 hours and i was just trying so hard not to have anxiety attacks, that i couldnt enjoy myself....

i was able to buy one thing for 4 kids.

i stink at this, a lot has to do with the fact that 2 days ago i went to try to get groceries and i was waiting for a parking spot and this man was honking and screaming and cussing at me to move because he wanted to go by. this was a very skinny lane by the way, so no one can move.

i finally got into the parking spot and he got off of his car and came to mine and screamed and cussed and told me to get out so he can teach me a lesson!

good thing tha t for the first tme in 2 months, i decided to go to the store without the kids, but i sat in my seat and cried for about 3 minutes, i was just so scared!!!!

yikes, that means i only have tomorrow to do what i have to do, on top of not having enough spirit in me for the season, i have not had the energy and time to do the Christmas projects i told the kids we would do, i have to go make a cake for my brothers birthday that is on christmas eve.

long story later, but this is for abrother that i have not talked with in 3 months and the father of my lil niece. its as a faveor to his girlfriend that i am making the cake.

God grant me the strength to make the cake with no diurettics!!!! lol lol lol


  1. I thought I was the only one to leave the x-mas shopping for the last possible moment. Every year I promise myself to have it done by September :)

  2. Adding diuretics to the batter? Now that's an ingredient I have yet to consider!

    I think it's perfectly ok to be feeling a bit coo-coo this time of year, especially when you're trying to create some magic for the little ones. I have nowhere near that much responsibility and still found myself fleeing Target this week like a woman possessed. :)

    I am sure you'll get everything you need to accomplished, including the baking. Wishing you the best!

  3. I did pretty much all of my Christmas shopping for my husband and kids just two days ago, so I feel your pain. I gotta figure out how to make this Christmas stuff a little less hectic so I can enjoy it. Right now it's just feeling overwhelming.

    Sorry about that jerk making an already stressful situation worse. I hope you can get everything you want to do done in time!

  4. Isn't it amazing the jerks that come out around holiday time? Instead of bringing out the best in people if often brings out the worst! Thanks for stopping by - I did have better luck with chores today! :0)


  5. Hello Lily from Lily! I never "meet" another adult Lily so that's pretty cool.

    So sorry to hear about the jerk who made you cry. I hope you are able to find a few peaceful moments during this holiday time.

    And my sincerest condolences for your miscarriages. It is so, so painful.

    Lastly, on a lighter note if you do make that diuretic cake for your brother, please send me the recipe...ha, ha....

    ICLW hugs right back, too!

  6. hi lily, i tried to go back to your blog but i cant access it, if you change your settings pls let me know so i can return the love ;)

  7. ICLW - Thanks Lily for leaving a comment on my blog - wow your life sounds very busy! I am sorry for that jerk making you cry at the store, because that sucks. I also suffer from depression and anxiety, so I know how much that sucks as well. I will be following your blog and keeping you and your family in my thoughts.

  8. You should have just gone on and had the anxiety attack. Hey, we have to make our own fun! As far as Mr. Screaming Man, don't worry; he's way more stressed out than you are! (jerk)

  9. There are some crazy people out there, aren't there? Good luck with finishing the shopping.

    I say go to Target and buy gift cards and then after Christmas, the whole family can go shopping together when everything is on sale!

    It's a difficult time of year for lots of people and I find it overwhelming at times.

  11. You do have a sense of humor with all the craziness of this time of the year. You didn’t let it rub off on you.

    The guy in the parking lot, did you get his license plate number? If not, because you were to upset, be careful, bullies can come back.

    Take a deep breath and decide what has to be done.

    I wish you lots of luck and a very Merry Christmas!

  12. thanks for visiting my blog! i also left christmas shopping to the last minute.. but I don't have 6 kids for an excuse... you are wonder woman!


Thank you very much for stopping by and even more for leaving a comment ;) Have a great month!!!
