Confessions of a Lazy Blogger and a Giveaway

goodness, has life been hectic.  my law clerk is missing at my office, he's been on vacation since november 18 and it has been insane here.  all the work he normally does plus a really crazy case (with a client who, i'll say it, i hate.  hate.  physically cringe when i see his name on the caller id.  not enough money in the world, people.) has meant that i've been pulling very long hours.  well, 12 hour days which can be normal for some big firm lawyers but for me?  i'm used to 8 a.m. to 5 or 6 p.m.  i'm exhausted and i can't wait for the clerk to be back tomorrow.

obviously that meant i didn't post since my birthday, almost 2 weeks ago.  not making any apologies for that - when you stare at a screen for 12 hours, the last thing you want to do is head home and log more screen time.  my eyes hurt.  i have been on twitter and instagram though, so if you miss me you can always check there!  that definitely makes me a lazy blogger, but i'm okay with it.  if you follow me, you probably know that by now already.

we going to blog today mom?  no?  oh okay.

other than working a lot, what have i been doing?

- pet sitting.  i stay at my parents house when they go out of town and watch their 2 dogs.  they've been making their instagram appearances.  and there will be more since i'll be watching them while my parents go to florida from december 13 until christmas eve.
- thanksgiving.  not a big holiday for my family, but i did go eat at an indian restaurant with my parents and one of my best friends, ida.  she's pretty much family.  she brought pie so it wasn't totally tradition-less, and we did get the christmas tree up!
- decluttering.  making room for the new things that will be coming in on christmas.  there's not many things since i don't like stuff and i request candles, but there are a couple things.  and new toys for hawkeye, so i have to get rid of the ones she doesn't play with but she won't let me.  girl is a hoarder.  also working on the cladwell capsule wardrobe thing, it's fun and it makes sense with how i think.  and it's only $10 for 3 months.  i think it'll help when i think i need a top (but i actually don't and have nothing to match it.)
- shopping.  online of course, in store is just nonsense.  and all the black friday sales were online so that's what i took advantage of.  they've actually been online since last monday and many are still going on, which is crazy.  but i love it.  all my gift shopping is done.
- buying healthy food.  want to do a diet bet with me and tara?  we're doing it in december, pretty sure.  to keep off the holiday pounds.  it's only $10, let me know if you want an invite.
- planning.  i planned and scheduled a ton of stuff for the blog for next year.  but not for the rest of this month.  how's that for priorities?  i have 365 tweets scheduled for 2016, yet not a post in sight for the rest of 2015.  balance?  what is balance?  i think i may do like 3 more posts for the rest of this year.  otherwise, i'm on hiatus til the new year.  i need down time.  those christmas and new year's breaks cannot come soon enough.

now, even though i encourage everyone to declutter, i am doing a giveaway.  you can win the lorac riesling romance eye shadow palette and the urban decay ammo eye shadow palette.  it's not really clutter if it's something you can use up, right?  in any event, i'd ship it to you well before christmas so you can gift it forward if you need a sister/bff gift.  and it true lazy blogger fashion, i'm not doing any sort of annoying entering process.  want the prize?  leave a comment below.  comment system not working for you?  tweet or e-mail or contact me some other way.  send a snapchat if you want (stephs1120); though i don't get snapchat at all i do know how to check what was sent to me.  random number generator will pick a winner.  i'll pick a winner soon, probably sunday so i can mail the palettes on monday or tuesday of next week.

happy entering, may the odds be ever in your favor.
