Running Out of Steam

I just can't seem to get my act together these days. Last night, I slept comfortably, but my brain would not shut down - in other words: I was in a good position, but I couldn't quite get the thoughts and weird "dreams" to go away.

Maybe now that I've purged them, they can hit the trails.

I ordered Buddy the Alienware M14x laptop. It's the only thing he has asked for this year. I told him that it would be a combination Christmas and birthday gift (his bday is Jan. 21). He will get other gifts from relatives, but I figured if he *knew* the only gift he'd receive from us was the laptop, he could check it out when it arrived.

I hate ordering electronics and then waiting 4 weeks to make sure everything works correctly. But, I was told the earliest shipping date would be Dec. 16. The laptop arrived yesterday, which caused all kinds of chaos in the family unit.

I've never been a stickler for "It has to be THIS certain day." As long as the recipient knows the score and agrees to the ground rules - and, at nearly 14, I think he does, then why would be have to wait?

My thoughts: Let him enjoy the gift and let me feel better that the product at hand actually functions the way it should before it's too late to be returned/exchanged.

BTW, that laptop is AWESOME!!!! :-)

I hope all my hooligans are having a good week and a great Thursday! I'll be here tomorrow - same (loosely available) bat time, same bat channel.

  1. As long as he still has some presents for the Holiday it's all good. I mean if you opened everything early it would suck to be sitting there watching everyone else get stuff ;-)
