    UPS is a goddamned mess.  My Sephora order has been in town since Friday, but got sorted wrong.  I don't know when it's going to show up, if at all.   

    In the meantime, two orders I made on Saturday showed up today...delivered by UPS.  Those fuckers need to get it together.
    That exact same thing happened to me, but it was LaserShip, their third party crap-ass courier who sorted it wrong. Right after I asked Sephora for a refund it finally showed up on my doorstep - over two weeks after I placed the order!!

    Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack

    Anything sung by Louis Armstrong or Frank Sinatra/Michael Buble

    Also not a Christmas song, but it gives me all the feels this time of year: My Favorite Things by The Supremes

    @mrsconn23 ouch! I'm so sorry about your staph infection! I hope the antibiotics continue to work and you feel some major relief soon!

    @charlotte989875 congrats on the offer! Keeping my fingers crossed that this one goes through!

    Weekend was good. Saturday I got a lot of Christmas shopping done in the morning before the snow really started to stick and visibility/roads got bad. Sunday I woke up with a really bad constricted and sore throat so I went to urgent care thinking it was strep. I used to get strep every year at least once a year from the time I was 5 until I was 33 and got my tonsils out. My 4-year streak continues! The rapid strep test came back negative! It's a virus, though, so I will just have to ride it out. 

    I'm working from home today to get rest and keep the virus away from the office. 

    H was awesome yesterday and let me rest while he tended to Babypants (unless she needed to nurse of course). 

    Babypants had a Big Weekend! She didn't sleep much in her crib Friday night - only two, 1-hour stretches. But Saturday night and last night she slept for 6.5 hours and 6 hours respectively! And when she woke me up in the middle of the night I put her back in her rock n play. Baby steps. lol.

    She also started on oatmeal this weekend! She likes it, but isn't convinced it's the best meal option. Last night we got Bertucci's and I was holding her while I was eating a slice of pizza and she kept staring at it and pretending to chew lol
