so, the official countdown to christmas has begun... i would like to go back a few weeks, i don't think i have enough time. i was sure there would be plenty of time to finish up gifts, but now i am not so sure. i have 4 quilts to finish... as that was my original goal... but i only have the tops of 3 done and the borders, backs and binding of none. that's right - NONE!!! boy an i going to be busy these next 3 weeks. i have all of my cards sitting very patiently on my counter waiting to be addressed and sent... who knows when i will do that. i had planned on putting a nice family update letter in each of them
that just may not get done either. i remember a time, not too long ago - before i had children, that i would be all shopped out and ready for christmas before i even had my costume ready for halloween. those days are long gone now. i will be lucky this year if i am ready by christmas eve! i would like to put in a request early for next year... maybe we could all just relax in december 2009 and celebrate christmas in january 2010?? february?? oh well... hopefully i will be able to pull it off. if not, you will know because you will be getting your cards and gifts in january with a nice little note of my sincerest apologies.
