Well, its 7:45 am, and I've allready had quite a day!

I had my alarm set for 8:30, but woke up at 6:40!! That is NOT usual for me at all! I tried to go back to sleep, but 2 Kenny Chesney songs later (his CD plays while I sleep), I decided it just wasnt going to happen, and got up. I had my dad go out and warm up my car for me- this cold air *hurts* my little lungs, and im not wanting bronchitis again, so im trying to be careful!

Pulling out of my driveway, I looked left..nothing..looked right..nothing. *NO* traffic. Nice surprise! About four whole minutes later, I pull into the Wal-Mart parking lot and score the very front parking spot. Big plus! Tightly wrapped up in my big green coat the size of Rhode Island, I scurry the few yards to the door, and see my favorite greeter guy, another plus! I get a cart, walk a few feet, and run smack dab (Um, literally, its 7am remember..) into a BIG Backstreet Boys CD Display. Yes, the new CD is out today. Really, I'm not at Wal-Mart at 7-am just to get this CD....*REALLY... I mean it!!... ::glances around guiltily:: I need mascara too! SO ha! Anyway, after my nice head-on collision with the display (No injuries to any major pop stars- thank goodness) I decieded I might as well pick up one of those nice little Black and Blue CD's. Mission Accomplished. So, as anyone knows, its the Law that you cant just go into wal-mart and leave.. you have to wander. So I browsed around, and noticed gloves- I need some! Two pairs for $1.50? Even I can afford that! Another big plus! Then I came across a candy bar display and picked up a Hershey's Cookies and Cream that I'm eating as I type-- Breakfast of Champions!! The whole time I was shopping, I was surprised at how friendly all the Wal-Mart people are in the morning. They're usually grumpy in the evening! Every employee I crossed said good morning, made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Well, I got to the checkout, and pulled out my poor little Visa. I cant believe I spent almost $40! Thats when I realized that I should NOT shop before noon. Looking back, I even almost bought a new fish tank. My mind doesnt understand budget that early! I did get one wonderful thing- a package of Christmas cards with CAMELS on them! I've been looking for some camel Christmas cards for AGES now! (since, say, last November!) I was very happy.

I resisted the temptation to get that new fishtank, as nice as it was. They had some cute goldfish that I passed on, too. Arent you proud? I'm running out of space for fish in this tiny little room. I've got my big aquarium with my shark and suckerfish, the little one with my goldfish, and the tiny bowl with my Betta. I guess I could easily stick more fish in the big tank (2 fish in a 10-gallon tank IS kind of a waist!), but I've had those fish for about 6 years and dont want to kill them now! And my poor little goldfish has had so many health issues I dont want to kill him either. Yes, I have feelings for my fish, sad, huh? And what is even sadder is that I'm sitting here WRITING about my fish. WHY? Its 8am.. thats why!

I really do kind of like this being up early thing though. I've gotten a lot done in the past hour, now I just need coffee. I wonder what I will get done before work? Hummm...
