Seriously, I am a SAHMWAEN (stay at home mom with an empty nest) so why I can't I get anything done. The day is mine yet with each passing day I look back at yesterday with the woulda coulda shoulda regrets.
I am so in love with reading blogs and commenting that I sit here for hours on end. I am not getting any work done. I still have to pack up my Christmas things and I finally feel well enough to do that. But I'm not doing that! I think about, I finally get my butt up from the computer chair and take a shower so I can begin working on something. Then I am in the shower and these ideas start floating through my head for posts so when I get out I tell myself that I will just sit here for a minute so I don't forget this fabulous idea. Well you know how that goes! I need to find some clip art, I need to check emails and maybe a quick look at my reader..........
I am so afraid of missing some awesome post or being out of the loop that I glue myself here and I then tomorrow morning I will be doing the woulda coulda shoulda dance again. Pour Skye has been begging me to take her outside and I say to her "just let me finish reading this one" and before you know it she is nudging me again because I read the next one, next one and next one. (okay I left for awhile to take Skye outside, bet you didn't even know I was gone) Had some chocolate, thought maybe that would get me moving.
So why am I telling you this? I think I need to take a break for a few days. Usually if I miss just one day my reader will say I have 350 posts to read. Obviously I don't read all of those and that is when I have to stick to my A-List. Of course now I am thinking that I need to make a new folder of Must Read because my A-List is pretty large. I know that some of you won't even know that I am gone. When am I doing this? Excellent question which I don't have an answer for. But let's face it, I MUST GET MY CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS DOWN VERY SOON! I love them with all of my heart but enough is enough! (I might even go to Vegas this week for a day trip!)
I am going to leave you with a picture I just came across (while looking for some pictures of my son to post on his birthday) of a REAL Christmas tree that we had in our family room in Western Springs, IL back in 1981 the year our daughter was born. Those are the ornaments I had collected since we got married in 1972. (It doesn't look well balance, almost messy. What's up with that!)
P.S. So I was typing this on Friday afternoon. I took some pictures today of the things that arrived from my purchase at Tender Heart Treasures, got some gifts/cards ready for a party on Sunday, did a load of towels, showered, blogged, worked on several posts that came to me in the shower of course, read emails, responded/commented and now I look at the clock ~ it's 5:00 ~ when did that happen.
GOTTA GO, IT'S TIME FOR A GLASS OF WINE, MOVIE & PIZZA!
