Ohhh sleep...where are you???

This pretty much sums it up!
It's 4am Tuesday morning. I have to "wake up" in about 2 hours to start the day and get the kids off to school - which these days for Baylie only lasts 3 hours (2 1/2 hrs if you count the time it takes me to drop her off and then turn around and pick her up, she's only in Pre-K)...but my point is, I'M STILL AWAKE!

Why, you might ask? I can't turn off the TO-DO LIST in my head....ugh, curse you TO-DO LIST! Why do you torment me so? Just when I think blessed sleep is within reach you rewind and start all over again like a broken record (for those of you not familiar, a record is similar to a CD, google it!)

Hopefully, YOU will read this after a restful night of sleep, if so, I'm happy for you, if not, welcome to the club...a club I'd really like to "de-friend!"

There's just something about BLACK FRIDAY that gets my blood pumping. It's crazy because I've actually only shopped (shoved, clawed & weaseled my way through the crowds) on BLACK FRIDAY twice in my life. Don't get me wrong, I love a great deal just as much as the next person and I'm pretty competitive, but those people are CRAZY and many of them are willing to do just about ANYTHING to get what they want.

So for me, I've decided I value my life and limbs more than saving a few bucks (or several hundred bucks) on the MUST-HAVE DEAL OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON...

But for those of you still brave (insane) enough to hit the stores (risk your lives) on BLACK FRIDAY (or BLACK THURSDAY as it's slowing morphing into), you'll be happy to know some stores are already offering a sneak peek at their DOORBUSTER DEALS (see link below). Just be careful, because that little old lady standing next to you might look innocent enough, but I promise you, she'll flatten you like a pancake if you're standing between her and her $499 FLATSCREEN...I'm just saying!

Must-have Christmas App?

Ok, so I have a confession...when it comes to buying and keeping track of Christmas gifts, I'm the WORST! Not only do I write a million lists and forget where I put them. I also buy gifts, hide them and then forget where I hid them. Like I've said, my KIDS STOLE MY BRAIN. Some moms are able to regain their brain power, but sadly, I'm not one of them. In fact, mine seems to be getting worse. So that brings me to the point of today's post. I'm hoping I may have finally come up with a surefire way to keep track of everything this year....AN APP!!! OH YEAH BABY, THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT. Some of you tech-saavy moms might already be aware of this, but for those of you who weren't, you gotta check it out:

The best part about this app is there's a "HOW-TO" video, so it's virtually impossible to screw it up. Oh yeah, it's only $.99 TOO! I downloaded it this morning and I've already inputted a lot of stuff, so I'll let you know how it's going...fingers crossed I won't find any of this year's Christmas gifts or lists hidden away in my closet come Easter!
