well, thanks to my mom's christmas present, GZ has lamps for the living room now. (if anyone needs light around here, Target had really nifty large floor lamps for seven dollars a piece, which is pretty damned good.) and i have shirts. and an exerball. and the giftcard still has money on it. my mom rules. :)
i was a rather large ball of stress this morning. i think it's mostly gone down now.
