Woah!!! How did THAT happen? Only 10 days!?!? Where have I been!?
I've been officially sick for a week now. Weird sick. Not enough to stay in bed, but bad enough to get through the day très sub par.
And though I've been fairly upbeat through the week, as of today I am officially Falling Apart. Behind on the December Photo Project. Zero presents wrapped. A few bought. No handmade gifts completed yet. And absolutely no sweet moolah. (Actually, I've done admirably well so far. I've managed to do all my shopping on C's tip money from the Giant Coffee Corporation that Offers Benefits.) Cookies!? HA! double HAHA! Anyway, lest I waste nap time by listing how much I'm NOT ready for Christmas to arrive, I better wrap this up. Or rather, wrap a gift. Ha. (I'm so delirious. Not. Enough. Air. Getting. Through. Sinuses.)
I've also been pondering that this Santa Claus thing is a Brilliant Idea!! Seriously. Christmas being delivered to your home in a red bag, free of charge? Sign me up! It's worth waiting until Dec. 24 for!
And lest I end on a whine. One Very Happy Addition to our home came yesterday. A Christmas Tree!!! Woohooo!!! Chris and I were beginning to seriously think that The Tree wasn't going to happen. I was considering stealing one from the State Park we live in. (Just Kidding!) But then my blessed MIL drove way out into the country and found awesome trees for $15 and got one for herself and us. Yaaaaayyyy!!!! Ellis is really enjoying it so far. He keeps pointing at all the little lights and signing "red" (they're multi-colored). And I put all the Okay if the Toddler Plays With ornaments at the bottom. Great fun. Good times. And every once in awhile the piney smell seeps past the evil Sinus Wrenchers prohibiting such sensory pleasures.
Cheers, friends! Happy One Week To Go!
