It's Tuesday and thankfully, I'm out of bed and feeling better. I was sick all last week and now am so far behind that all I want to do is climb back in bed and hide. Since that's not going to happen, I guess I'll just buckle down and get it all done.
Want to get random, go over to The Unmom and link up your own randomness.
Why didn't I put the outside lights up the day after Thanksgiving when it was 68 degrees out? It's 4 degrees right now and it's supposed to get up to 8 degrees today. We are supposed to get a warm up into the 40's this weekend so I'll have to wait until then. I just want my garland and red bows up-----NOW!!!!!!
I did get the wreath on my car today though! I'm a Christmas freak.
I really don't mind at all when my hubby gives me a list of things to take care of, especially when he is going to be out of town. I'll gladly run errands and take care of things....on my schedule. Give me a list, but I don't like the timing to be dictated. I know he wants it done, but I'm fitting it into the things I need to do so it might not get done until Friday at 3pm but by golly, it'll be done before he gets home. I hate the phone calls on Monday night asking if I got them done. Nope sure didn't. I know it stresses him out so today I'll get it all done so I can alleviate his stress level but really. Can you tell I'm grumpy today!!! LOL
The baking has barely begun and Christmas is 17 days away. UGHHHHHH. I lost a week and I can't get it back. Every time I open my pantry the 35 pounds of flour and 30 pounds of sugar taunts me to get to it. The fridge holds 24 pounds of butter that's doing the same. I can't wait to start but there are so many things that need to be done. Like the 300 ice scrapers and 300 pairs of gloves that are sitting in my garage waiting to be wrapped and delivered to the teachers some time in the next week and a half.
I will say that yesterday afternoon, I got home and was so tired that I sat down to eat an early dinner, began knitting and didn't move from the chair until it was time for bed. I have to get my son-in-law to be's stocking done so that it can be hanging on the mantle when they get here in 3 weeks. I really did need to be knitting, but it did feel a bit like slacking off, knitting in front of a crackling fire, snow falling outside, my Christmas tree lights turned on, a cup of cocoa (yes, with homemade marshmallows) and some Bing on the stereo. OK, maybe it was a bit of both but it's a beautiful thing when needs and wants can be the same thing.
I hope that your needs and wants come together this week for you, too!!!
