Naughty list

Really I actually googled how many days til Christmas on purpose? What the hell was I thinking?? Clearly I was not since it is 2:02 am and now my anxiety has skyrocketed! According to the countdown clock there are 5 days and 21 hours left! Doesn't it seem like it appears out of no where? I's the same ******* time each year....but really it does seem to sneak right up on you! I have been shopping for months ( yeah...OK you got me there ... nothen new) but still I just made my list...and check it twice... and whoops...I forgot some people! Like major family members! Humm doesn't that mean they must be on the naughty list? Eureka that's it! If I get called out for missing someone I will just just remind them what list they are on!

My glorious craft table is in over drive and is a hot mess! I have a Craft Explosion going on ...all my projects are running together! I'm sure at some point ( like in 5 days and 10 hours maybe)  it'll be nice and clean again ( for the hubster's sake) I am pretty sure I see his eye twitch a little more as each day passes and it still looks like ....Don't worry hubster this too shall pass...................well maybe!

Time Flies....

Can you believe there are only 14 shopping days left til ...gasp Christmas! Where did October and November go! I was shocked when I just looked at my post list and I have not logged in since the beginning of October! And trust me it's not like I didn't have PLENTY to ...oh how would the hubster put it...oh yeah.. NAG ABOUT! He must need a refresher course because here I am at 12:30am scrolling through pictures from this year to make up the Xmass cards first he points out that it is Xmass is in 2 weeks and I am just now doing the cards?  And then he pipes in "While your up ~ you should update your blog! I'm tried of reading the same thing!"

The past 2 months are a bit of a blur.....October all my free time was spent making Tutu's for my Halloween crafts! I had tutu's coming out of my ears. And when the dust settled in rolled November.

My great aunt had a massive stroke in early November. She is the godfather of our entire family, the glue that holds us all together, the strongest woman (besides my mom) that I know. It makes perfect sense my mom and my aunts would be so strong, they were all raised by her! She is also 89, but like I said the strongest woman I know, she is a fighter and has not given up yet. I am sure when she regains her speech.....she will have plenty to all of us ~ that go and visit and yap and yap away ~ whether she wants to hear it or not!! None of us can imagen a world without her, so for now ~ we don't let ourselves imagen that at all.

We have had some major
 changes in our school world. PC has changed to a private school that  caters to his ADD,ODD and OCD. It only has 92 kids from grades 5-12 and the best part....are you ready... there is ....wait for it.... wait.... there is.. NO .....HOMEWORK!!! There is a chance I may survive these "Tween years" without wearing prison orange!! We just started last week so time will tell if it'll be worth it. I certainly hope so!

Off to bed I need to go! My head is swirling with all the projects left to finish, shopping left to do and I totally need to get my lazy ass up and go to boot camp at 5:30am oh and swing by Walmart before I go! After all it is the baking season!!! The hubster - who BTW makes a WAY better house wife then me.....  made tonight for dinner...homemade bread, real Alfredo sauce with pasta and chocolate chip meringue cookies for dessert!
Can't you just feel your waistband expand???
