A week away from Christmas, and I may be burning out on Christmas music already. That's not good. I finally pulled out the Christmas CDs that have been unavailable for the past couple of years. As much as I love Trans-Siberian Orchestra, I really can't listen to them 24/7 for a month. Or anyone else, for that matter.
I decided I'd like to enjoy our 3-dimensional tree this year. The 2D tree has been a blessing and served its purpose in other years (09 & 07), but sometimes one just needs a little more dimension for the holidays. ClayGuy was kind enough to share his Lego train with our tree, so it has a little loop going around the tree skirt. Santa's even taking a ride. Guess he wanted a break.
We're so blessed that John's business is still fairly steady. That's always a very good thing when you're in the RV industry in Colorado in the winter. God's so faithful to provide for us. He never ceases to amaze me!
We're taking a break from homeschool - at least a week off, anyway. We'll see what happens after Christmas. We may have some light days the week between Christmas and New Year's. And then we'll be hitting it pretty hard.
The sewing projects are coming along well. My hardware order finally arrived. Took a little longer than anticipated, but it's here. That's all that matters now. Cause if it wasn't here today, I was off to the thrift stores to find some purses from which I could pirate some pieces.
I'm looking forward to finishing up these couple of projects so I can work on something new that I'm a little excited about. It's a purse, but it's a very cool purse. All I have is a couple of photos and a hopefully-not-too-foggy memory, so I don't want to wait too long to get to that one.
I have way too many books from the library to read. It's a sickness, really. I think I got it from my mom (thanks, Mothra!). I go the library, intending to pick up no more then 3-4 books, and leave with 7-10 or 15. I'm allowed to have them for three weeks. As if I think I can read them all in that time. Fortunately, there's a button on the website called RENEW. It's one of my favorite buttons of all.
For some reason, I can't seem to utilize Facebook and Twitter at the same time. Not simultaneously, but if I'm hanging out on FB, I don't open Twitter. And vice-versa. Which is kind of funny, given the strange multi-tasking that I seem to do. In fact, I've been painfully aware of my weird multi-tasking habits recently.
- Diffusing my hair (w/a blow dryer) while brushing my teeth or putting on makeup.
- Talking on the phone with my sister, while emailing a friend, and texting yet another friend. Conversations began to suffer.
- Cooking dinner and playing Angry Birds.
Maybe I think I can read multiple books at the same time, too. Well, I do, but again, not simultaneously. That would just be bizarre.
I have too many tabs open most days, too. I think I need an intervention.
No wonder my posts are random.
But I do love Google Reader. Which I only recently began to utilize. It's a very good thing.
I think I need to make a list. There are too many things rolling around in my head. Perhaps that's why I couldn't sleep last night. And why my posts consist of either pictures or randomness. There's nothing in between.
Quote from my 6-year old niece:
Sometimes I just say random words for no reason.
Obviously we're related.
Enjoy your last weekend before Christmas.
