Shopping, Cleaning, and Giveaways

Well, Saturday is my first ever family holiday get-together that I'm hosting, and it's been a super busy week for me trying to get my apartment straightened up and looking nice. My apartment is always clean, but it gets disorganized and cluttered pretty quickly because it's so small. So, while dealing with this pain flare-up, I've been working on trying to create enough space for twelve people to sit and to be able to move around in without tripping on each other. Quite a feat when the apartment is only 600 sq. feet in total, and since the party is only in the living room area.....well, let's just say it's good thing we all like each other!! I'm excited for Saturday, though and am hoping it all turns out as nice as I'm thinking it will.

Mom and I had plans to go grocery shopping today to get all the food for Saturday. Well, you know what they say about best laid plans?

Because I have RSD and Fibromyalgia, I'm unable to do some of the cleaning in my apartment, such as the tub and vacuuming, so the insurance company pays for a cleaning crew to come twice a month. I called yesterday to find out what time they'd be here today, and I was told noon. Therefore, Mom and I planned to leave to go grocery shopping at 1:30. Well, that was the plan.....that is until I see that it's 1:30, and the cleaning crew is still not here!

By the time they got here it was almost 2:00, so we made a quick change of plans. We decided to go to Target to get some other things for the party and also get some of the food that was cheaper at Target than the grocery store. We had to hurry, though because Mom needed to leave for my grandma's house by 5:00 since she's spending the night there and needed to relieve Bless, one of the caregivers. In the end, we wound up doing exactly what we didn't want to do......rush, rush, rush, only finish half our lists, rush, rush, rush, and not get to use all our coupons. Very frustrating, but at least we got a start on what needs to be done as far as the shopping is concerned, and we'll just have to finish the rest of it tomorrow.

It's going to be another busy day as we will also start some of the cooking tomorrow. Depending on how I'm feeling, Mom may end up doing the rest of the shopping for me so that I can save my energy for the cooking and finishing up the last of the decorating.

Anyway, here are some giveaways for you to enter!! Good luck!!

Pain Flare-Up and Giveaways

Well, I was supposed to tutor today, but this pain flare-up I've been dealing with has gotten much worse, and I had to call and cancel. I hate doing that, but the pain was, and still is, so intense that it's too difficult to focus, not to mention that the sitting makes the burning much worse when I'm flared like this. Therefore, this will be yet another short post and a few giveaways.

Update and Giveaways

Well, I haven't posted in awhile, and I still need to blog about my trip to Monterey. I finally got a few of the pictures from my dad's digital camera so that I can post them with the blog.

Today, I spent the day decorating my Christmas tree and starting to decorate the rest of the apartment. My mom and dad came over about noon, and Cookie, the youngest of my two younger sisters, came over for about an hour to help a little bit. I'm going to borrow my dad's camera to take pictures of my tree and my whole apartment, once it's finished, and then I'll post them here to share, along with the Monterey trip photos and blog. In the meantime, I'm going to share some more giveaway details.
