I've been, well, I don't know what I've been doing, I am so busy lately that by the end of the day I sit back and try to remember all I did and honestly, if I can come up with ONE specific thing, that is amazing.
I have promised myself to slow down though, I hate the feeling of life zipping by and not enjoying it, isn't that just the worst thing???
So anyway, here I am, happy and content, not exactly caught up on all my blogging friends, but I promise to be by tonight, so please, if I haven't come your way yet in a few days, just hang in there, don't close the door on me ok??? I did promise to bring coffee and donuts!!!
It's been raining here, started last night and apparently it's supposed to keep up through the rest of this week, which makes me yearn for friday all the more, just knowing that I can sleep in and not have the "morning rush". You know the weather has been weird here, it's rainy but warm in a way, then there's all sorts of stuff all over the ground, there's soggy leaves and "eeewwww" worms....I want to say I've stepped on a few but just saying it makes me gag, so just whatever, imagine it LOL
I'm still waiting on you all to email me your addresses, that is if you would like a Christmas card from me. I would love to send you one :)
I've been getting all my stuff ready to start on my christmas decorations, I want to be like Barb and make tons, I mean she's made what like a gazillion stars??? She's just crafty like that, so I want to do it too, though I'm sure I will end up getting only 10 or so done...who knows.
But while out yesterday, I picked up two new magazines, one is called Paper Crafts, and let me tell you, it's now one of my new favorite MUST.BUYS. It's filled with great crafts for the holidays and even better, handmade christmas card ideas, which is something I've been looking for. I always see these real crafty ones and want to get in there too, besides I think it makes them so much more personal ;)
Yes my dear friends, the lists have started, there's gift lists and food lists and all sorts of other lists. LISTS LISTS LISTS!!!
I'm trying to cut back on my spending this year though, I think we get so carried away with the christmas shopping and honestly, spending a fortune on gifts is ridiculous.
I'm thinking maybe half bought and half homemade??? Will see!!!
Well it's time to start dinner and then I need to steam clean my carpets while it's in the oven....the dinner, not the carpets in the oven....just clearing that up, I got myself a little confused after reading that LOL
So I leave you with my usual lists of what I'm doing today :)
Have a great tuesday night, stay safe and stay warm....and Courtney, I'm SO glad Matt is back home with you guys. Thank you for your service SPC. Matt Cleveland and WELCOME HOME!!!
