I’m not sure where that phrase originated; it’s pretty strange. But for this week’s purposes, it fits.
I am down to five days and I’ve only got 3 gifts left that must be done before we leave on Wednesday. I’ve got another 7 that need to be done sometime before New Years and I’m not even stressed about it. Granted, those 7 will be the hardest gifts (why, why do I insist on sewing projects every year?) So, if you’re keeping track – that means I’ve finished TWELVE gifts in the past FOUR days. Considering I didn’t do any yesterday, that’s stinking impressive. Am I allowed to say that about myself? Well, even if I’m not, I’m sure you’re thinking the same thing.
Ok – side note. I’m listening to Pandora’s holiday mix right now, and B.E. Taylor’s “Angels We Have Heard on High” is playing right now… you know, the part where it just repeats, “glo-o-oria, in excelsis deo” and he actually just sang the words, “talkin’ ’bout gloria.” Isn’t that hilarious?
So anyway, things are getting accomplished left and right. Tonight is the Christmas party for my tiniest friends. We’re making cookies, watching a Christmas movie, opening a few little gifts, and listening to fun Christmas music. If I can figure out my new camera, I’ll be sure to get some pictures. Dave has been practicing the camera very much in the past week or so, and has got some great pictures. I’ll try to post some in the next few days.
I hope you all are having as much of a fun, productive, festive, magical? December as I am having.
