I'm completely scatterbrained. I'm not sure if it's because I upped my daily headache med dosage, or if it's the winter weather closing in on me, or if it's just life in general.

I ordered a book from overstock.com and it arrived damaged. I HAVE to send that book back, preferably tonight. I don't know why I keep forgetting about it.

I need to mail a box to my mother because she forgot some stuff here. Must do that soon as well.

I ordered a gift on half.com and it never arrived. I filed a claim, but haven't heard a peep from them. I wonder how long it will take me to get my $8 back. Did I mention I'm done with half.com? Oh yeah, DONE.

I've got coupon inserts lying on my counter from Sunday. I haven't even flipped through them yet, much less cut them out and organized them. Good mail yesterday though, I received my prize pack from Flash. Yeah! I need to get this stuff together to get ready for the coupon train.

I have all the stuff to fix my camera now - why can't I find the time to do it?!

I haven't journaled, haven't swam, haven't put plastic over the attic windows yet... and believe me, I need to. I organized my half of the attic over the weekend (felt so good to clean!) and found three disturbing bugs. Some research indicated that they were Western Conifer Seed Bugs. Think boxelder bug but twice the size, kind of resembling a cockroach. They were harmless and went outside without a fuss, but scared me silly when I stuck my hand in a box and nearly grabbed one!

I'm going to write up a to-do list to try to sort my muddled thoughts...

    glad you supplied the link to that site, as i often find interesting bugs i'd like to identify.

    I've seen your bug a lot by my house. If it's what i'm thinking of, they move very slowly, right? I don't think they hurt anything...

    If they are what's here they can cost you money though! We have some here that look very similar like a cross between a cricket and a grasshopper.

    They get into the drainpipe on my heating/cooling system and clog it up. It cost us the first time because we didn't know what was wrong with the system and had the repair guy out...once we found out what it was The Hubster has been getting them out of there every year since.

    I had never seen these before 3 to 4 years ago. They are a new breed of cat in our area.
