What's going on with me...let's just jump right in, shall we?  I finally ordered my sister's Christmas gifts.  Yay, right?  Given the trouble I had deciding what they were.  Last night I get an e-mail...the most important part of the gifts has been canceled due to being out of stock, which they didn't bother to tell me when I ordered it or when they charged my credit card.  Now, everything else I ordered was bought to match this thing...so, now I'm royally screwed.  To use the example I gave my sister, it's like buying a laptop and all the accessories for that specific model, only to be told they don't have that model but are going to ship you all the accessories anyway...Now, I have nowhere near enough money for the computer she wants so it's a bogus example, but it fits the situation that Amazon put me in with what I actually did buy (which I can't say since she reads this.)  So, I spend all night last night trying to find away to fix this without having to scrap everything and start over...And, I can fix it...It's just going to cost an extra three hundred bucks.  Lovely, right?  Since I'm just rolling in dough..But, it's done...expensively and stressfully but it's done...I hope...

So, this morning I drop off my little kitten Wicket (you may have seen her picture in my other posts) at the vet to get spayed.  I come home and discover that the Harry Potter Blu-Rays my sister ordered for her friend at work have been delivered by the post office to...someone else!!  According to their website, they were delivered to my house on December 7, 2011...which is the day I actually got a package that was supposed to go to my neighbor down the street.  Lovely...So, I call the post office and they say they are going to talk to the delivery guy and get back to me.  I call Amazon to tell them I never got my discs but I've been charged for them.  The woman at Amazon tells me they can get me a refund but not a replacement since they aren't making these anymore...Let me get this straight...Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows parts 1 & 2 that just came out a couple weeks ago, and they've already stopped making them...Yeah, I'm not buying that.  So, I talk to someone else...He also doesn't know where she came up with that because, not only are they still manufactured, but they have them in stock.  So he's promised to overnight replacements to my house at no charge since we need them by Thursday for Kim's Christmas party/dinner thing.  So, they should be here tomorrow.  As for the postman, his supervisor told me that she told him he better start knocking on doors because if she doesn't have the discs on her desk tomorrow, he better come up with the forty dollars they cost me.

So, that's my day...except for the phone call from the vet that I just go.  Turns out that my darling baby girl is...a bouncing baby BOY!!  They got Wick under the anesthetic and shaved for surgery only to discover that she's a HE!  Kelly, the receptionist/nurse, called me and was so apologetic since she's the one who sexed them when they were a few weeks old.  Apparently, mixing up boys and girls is pretty common with kittens, and the younger they are the more likely a mistake is.  What she felt the worst about was, had we known he was getting neutered and not spayed, it could have been done and HE could have been home hours ago.  Now, HE is staying overnight since HE didn't get into surgery until late because spaying takes longer than neutering.  Four months I've been referring to "my little girl."  And, this isn't likely to change overnight...habits take time to break.  Poor cat is going to have gender issues for a while...

Gotta tell you, folks...I'm quickly reaching the end of my proverbial rope.  You know the expression "waiting for the other shoe to drop?"  Well, I've had a closet worth dumped on me these last couple weeks...hopefully, I can spend this week off work slowly digging my way out...

My baby BOY
