Weekend In A Nutshell

I am going to get my shit together this week.  Promise.  I think.

So let me fill you in on a bit of nothing that went on over the last few days...

* I am nearly finished writing out my Christmas and birthday (I have so many friends with near-Christmas birthdays so they get two prezzies in Dec.) list.  And if I keep on top of things, I might just actually reach my goal of having it all bought, made and wrapped in a bow by December 01.  That's my goal every year and I believe I've only actually accomplished this once.  This might be year number two.  I had a holiday A-HA moment on Sunday and all of a sudden I just figured it all out!

* I was rolling my buggy up to the check-out area of Target tonight, looking for the shortest line.  I saw a cashier walking back toward her station and asked if she was open.  She said yes and I rolled right over.  Unloaded about five of the 12 things in my buggy.  When this women rolls up behind me and scolds me that she was in front of me.  I turned to see her and she again said that she was in front of me.  I must have looked deer in headlights and mumbled a "huh??" because she repeated herself a third time.  Still confused I turned to look at the cashier (who was scanning) and turned back and said "um..oh...sorry?"  Now I pushed my cart at a normal speed.  I wasn't like pulling it or running like a crazy person.  I was engaged in a conversation with the cashier.  After pushing my cart, I walked around to the front and unloaded nearly half my goods on the conveyor belt.  There is no way she could have been in front of me without seeing her.  I am not a line-skipper either.  At all.  So she then grumbles in the very most snide tone ever that I can go ahead but she was in front of me.  So a minute later I finish putting my stuff on the belt and move down to swipe my card (I'm considerate like that and know that if you swipe before finishing it means the next person won't have to wait very long.).  So lady is slamming her stuff and huffing and giving me VERY dirty looks and keeps saying how she was in front of me.  I lean in to the cashier and apologize to her and she replies "oh I don't care, I didn't see her."  Which only brought eye daggers from lady.  I nearly ran out of there.  But I am pretty sure to be in front of me, you need to actually be, you know, in front of me.  As in, I see your hiney.  Not the other way around. 

* I had a very busy but a surprisingly fun weekend.  A little Junior League, a lot of sorority, and a three-some between me, the vacuum and my house.  Dirty, not-so-sexy fun. 

* And big BIG (or little) news is that I fit into my tan Lilly cords on Sunday!  Now they are still two sizes larger than I want to be wearing, but even they didn't fit by the end of last winter.  A lovely and not overly expected side-effect from going gluten free.  And serious motivation to stay on top of Project Fit Back Into My Pants!

Back tomorrow with recipes and photos.  Pinky swear!

What a nutball! I seriously don't understand people like that. Weird. But sometimes I secretly love things like that because then I get to tell a funny story! :)

Oh once I calmed down in my car, my first thought was to blog it. Ha!

You are really on top of things to have your cards all ready this early. Good job!

I would have been shaking after that Target incident. Someone must have a loose screw.

LOL, some people are just strange! Sounds like she has much larger problems than her spot in the checkout line!

Yay on the Cmas list....I need to pull mine out...I think I am 85% through with everyone that isn't under my roof...the remainder are the hard/expensive ones, LOL!

You are SUCH a good friend to your friends with December birthdays. My bday is smack-dab on Christmas and I usually only get a separate birthday gift from my bff, my parents, and my godfather.

Ridiculous Target lady. Some people just need to learn that the world does not, in fact, revolve around them and the no matter how many times you say something that doesn't make it true.

The rest of the weekend sounds great though! Congrats on the pants!

Maybe I've just been in a mood, but I've gone into Superbitch for FAR less ... yikes :) But at least you know when it's happening that it's making the blog. I do the SAME thing!!!

I would have pulled all my southern out on her and said "Ma'am I am so sorry you seem to be having such a bad day but we both know very well that taking it out on others and making up excuses to be angry won't make it better. I suggest you grab a sweet treat and have a better day."

I do not put up with people being nasty.

Sending you a smile,

How crazy! Being in another line doesn't mean she was there first. I had someone see a new line opening and ram backwards without looking to move and almost knock me down.
Way to go already getting your friends birhtday cards done. Mine gets missed a lot being Christmas day.

I'm so impressed that you're almost done Christmas planning! And congrats on fitting into your pants!

Target's a great place, but like all great places it attracts loony people! :D

edezther said...

some people are really crazy, I swear if it was me, I will give have that devilish look ;)
sorry but I just can't stand those kinds..

It's so funny how psycho people always pick on the nicest people! You were so calm with her. I probably would have been extremely rude and pointed out that she wasn't in front of me because I was, indeed, in front of her. Lol.

Congrats on fitting into your pants! Such a great feeling!

I'm almost done with my x-mas list. It's on paper, so I need to shop!
