Yea, yea it's TUESDAY, now.

So - I have excuses excuses excuses to divulge before telling the "real deal."  

I am behind... AGAIN, with this blog.  I have all my iron in the fire - and all my kids' irons in the fire, and Pops' irons, and the neighbors' and YOURs.  YES, I have your irons in the fire, because I have so many projects going all at once that I had to secretly borrow yours.  Thank you.  You'll get your irons back in March.

Christmas is nearly here.  All the preparation and planning has to be in order. Christmas is in 2 days. I have been sewing, baking, wrapping, shipping, cleaning, ackkk - what was that interrupting all my Christmas preparations? Oh, yes a bout with the bug who feels it is his place to become a squatter in my stomach and intestines.  Lovely.  That was 2 days lost with my own digestive bug squatter and 2 days for Blossom and 2 days for Branch.  So far, the men of the house have avoided the squatter. Lucky them.  As for pictures on this post and the last few... sorry.  No time to do that, too. And really, what kind of picture would you expect to see on this post?  OH, the mess around here? Sorry.  No time for taking pictures of clutter!!

OK, enough excuses.  

Here's the update on Last Wednesday's post.  I went to the dentist.  There was no snow to contend with.  It was raining and 41 degrees.  There was one 1 mile stretch on my drive that was getting wet and slushy snow.  It was causing no problems.  I am sure glad that I stayed up so late getting more things done Sunday night in my hopes of having my dentist appointment cancelled.  

So, Sunday night I only slept from 2 am to 6:30 am.  That is NOT enough sleep. I stayed up last night until 1 am.  Sewing.  Sewing. Sewing.  

I HAVE to finish tonight for the kids.  It is their annual Christmas Eve gift. Every year, on Christmas Eve the kids get to open ONE present and I get to choose.  I always choose that they open a new pair of pajamas!! This year, I got creative or something.  "I'll make 'em myself this year!"  Oh, I forgot that I already committed to myself that I would sew all these other items! So, hurry hurry hurry!  Bud's is complete.  I have to hem Branch's. Blossom's pattern needs to be pinned, cut out, and sewed up.  Then finish the wrap!!  :)  Wish me luck!!


  1. Glad you were able to make it to the dentist.. I'm still cracking up about their phone call last week!

    Our kids open one gift Christmas Eve too, and it is always new pj's. Though I am NO WHERE NEAR brave enough to attempt to sew them myself! It would take me a couple years!

    I can't even seem to complete these couple little projects I decided to do.. I AM trying, they just ARE NOT turning out. :( Oh well.

    I hope you all have a great Christmas!!

  2. good luck getting it all done. we got your card~love the pic of the kids at the ocean.
    merry christmas
