Fa lala lala

So it's finally happening. I'm getting into the Christmas spirit. Normally I'm already there - usually I'm done my shopping by this point. Crazy but true. And then I just relax and enjoy the Christmas season. Yesterday on our way home from Regina ( which was awesome - I'll post pics soon ) I bought new Christmas lights to coordinate our tree with the new house ( uh, yeah). And today, I pretty much did all my shopping for the hubby online.

*** As a side note, I will mention that Scott is so right about shopping online. I am starting to agree that it is way better than dealing with the zombies in the mall, too busy focusing on their next big purchase to realize that their cart is up my ass and their kids finger is so far up their nose they're causing brain damage.

So now I'm pumped up to get home and finish one of my sewing Christmas projects and hopefully start the next one. I also will be getting the house cleaned and the tree ready to be decorated. Once the spirit hits, it can't be stopped. Now all I need is to bust out the carols and find my Santa hat.... or maybe the reindeer horns?

Ya'll gonna make me lose my mind...

I am so stressed out! Deep Breath!
Work is extremely busy right now and I am obviously, much to my dismay, not one of those people that can just turn it off and go home kind of person. On the contrary, I am one of those; have to keep a pen and paper by the side of the bed in order to write things down to do at work the next day in order to be able to sleep type of person. It just never ceases to amaze me the people out there that expect so much from everybody else. I was raised to take care of yourself and I guess I just expect others to do the same.

Alrighty then, now that that is out of my system.

The long weekend was absolutely wonderful!! Had Mom's 50th birthday party on Friday night and it turned out great. It is so nice to see everybody happy and having a good time. My mom is normally pretty reserved ( I take after dad in that regard)but I tell you she was throwing back the liquor and dancing up a storm that night. Of course we forgot the camera - talk to Scott about that one!

I used the rest of the weekend as an opportunity to do some fall cleaning and work on my Christmas present projects. Yes, I actually worked on my Christmas present projects! Yeah! Scott has been wondering how long I was planning on staring down that pile of fabric just hoping that the little sewing fairy would come along and whip it up for me.

In other news Scott said I could put the Christmas tree up on November 25th. Is anybody else excited by this??? Except I have to change the color of the decorations this year to "go" with the new house. Sigh. Oh the troubles I have.

Kids say the darndest things!

So just had a guy tell me the funniest story about his 4 year old daughter. They were having a presentation from the local firefighters at pre-school about not playing with fire when his daughter pipes up and says, "but sometimes my mom and dad light a match in the bathroom".

Drum roll please.
