It's not that I leave stuff until the last minute, it's that there aren't enough minutes in the day. Do you see the difference? Yeah I got all the presents to be mailed in the mail earlier in the week. Huge relief. I finally finally finally got the Christmas cards in the mail. OK all but 2 and it was actually the hubby that put them in the mail (thank you dear!) but I addressed and stamped them all last night. So what do you think? Will they make it before next Thursday? Do I care at this point? Only a little bit really but I think they have a good chance. I have a few left so I will take a picture of one and post it up, that way everyone gets a card from me! I love the internets, easier to spread the love! Or the crazy, I suppose it's all relative yeah?
Now everyone has presents under the tree and the hubby has gone out today to try and find a present for me. Lets hope he finds something or the kid is going to have issues with Santa. I still have to drop off a few things for my friend. I bought her her gift back in September. No really I did, I swear! It was one of those special order things that had to be made. No not expensive, just hand made. And I have a Foggy Mountain Dog Coat that I special ordered for my frenchie and it's too big and needs to be returned. GAH! I so don't want to mail anything right now. Just add it to the list of crap that needs to get done.
Apparently I can't use a measuring tape on a fat round dog. I got his back length wrong, see he's got such a bad case of little man's syndrome that even his mommy things he's big. So I called up the store I ordered it from and they have ordered him a smaller one and I have to get this one back to them. You know I think I'm going to find a UPS store to send it back, I don't want to go back to the USPS. Plus this was not a $20 coat. No this one was $40 plus shipping so we're talking more like $50 in the mail. Not going to trust the USPS with this one. Funny too, when I called I was all apologetic because it was my bad and I know that they have to make a special order to get one in. Well apparently they were ordering more that morning for their bulldogs. I love horsey places that have bullys, they're my kind of people! So I wasn't inconveniencing them which made me feel a bit better about my measuring incapabilities. It's not all me though, you know that frenchies kidney bean too? Do you know how hard it is to un-kidney bean a squat anvil? Plus he wanted to know what I was putting on his back, like I was going to strangle him with a measuring tape. A lot of places that I could have ordered the coat from would have to go out of their way to order the coat in the first place, this place is in Pennsylvania and I think they are making major orders every week because of the weather. Texas store? Not so much. Oh what we do for our silly little dogs I swear.
Really though if I had the spare cash this little dude would have a closet of outfits, each one more stupid than the last. Why? Because he's so dumb he doesn't mind getting dressed up. And you know me, I like to mess with my dogs. Wait till they fall asleep and plug their nostrals with 2 fingers and see how long until they figure out they can't breathe. Or tickle the fur between their paw pads while they sleep, gawd that drives them nuts, it's a fav of mine. The hubby thinks dog clothes are stupid though so he'd probably ixnay the idea. Too bad, the kid would have a ball...
