Insane with the "Busy-ness"

Oh people, people, people!

Because I am incredibly disorganized with dates, times, and things to do, I over-compensate by making lists. I now am in posession of a legal pad full of lists and revised lists and a run down of the next two and a half months... I can only say, "holy shit!" I'm totally f-ed. What was I thinking?

I don't know how those who have more than one child to schedule do it! Especially if you work full time.

This is what went through my head last night, while trying to fall asleep... I need to lay off the reality shows, I think...

So the winner of Big Brother gets $500,000. Let's see, that minus 40% in taxes is $300,000. I'll divide it into thirds. We put $100 grand immediately into some sort of retirement/annuity/long-term savings deal. The next $100 grand gets spent on outstanding debt, bills, car payments, and regular savings. The final $100 grand gets splurged a little and then put aside for the household bills. There, that should do it. Not as much of a windfall as I'd like to come into, but it will work. I'm not greedy. Now I just have to convince Dr Pop AND win a free and clear $300K. There's no way. Well maybe. I don't know. What if we won the lottery last night? That would be awesome! I could definitely convince him if we won the jackpot! What time is it? Oh crap. I need to get to sleep. So. Back to the $300k...

Yeah. I know. Sad. And Scary.

I think you should aim for Survivor. You could totally do that game :)

Nah. I don't do bugs and fish... I'd be totally out of my element... Seriously. Can you see *me* camping, much less having to build a shelter? ;-)
