Well I survived Nutcracker and it went very well. I was very tired yesterday and slept most of the day. I did not even get out of my jammies. Hubby was not too pleased with me not gong to church as I was not sick, just very tired, physically and emotionally, but too darn bad. I know God loves me even if I stayed home.
I have been running around putting crap away. Every room I go into has Kim and Nutcracker droppings in it. I stop and put away a few things and move on. I have the garage cleaned out, hubby will be so happy. All of the glitter and spray paint is put away. I was able to get the Christmas things from the Church Christmas party put away. I have been tripping over that basket for a week. I have a basket full of things to put away upstairs when I run up there to do my hair and put on some makeup. I washed my hair and went to bed with it wet Saturday night. I have done nothing with it and it is quite scary.
Now my desk, my shop and the shop bathroom are a disaster. I have plenty of sewing that has to go out so I need to attack that soon. There is not one clean cereal or soup bowl in the kitchen and it smells like something died in the trash. I will need to see to that before I hit the studio which is not put together at all. My ballet Mistress and I will pull out the floor and tape is the rest can stay until I can get a few volunteers down to help me put stuff away.
Hubby's 63rd Birthday is on Thursday and the kids are coming down for dinner. I will have fried chicken, mashed potatoes, biscuits and German Chocolate cake. I also have to take a meal into a dance mom who had her baby at 10 in the morning the day of the recital. A lot of excitement at rehearsal I can tell you. Just starting to get the piles of stuff put away is such a relief. Cleaning and getting back to status quot is calming.
Put together a deposit for the studio so I can pay the rent. I think most of the other bills are paid, but I will have to look. Now I just want a calm inexpensive Christmas. I will be going to Mom's on New years to spend a few days with mom and sis. I sure hope little sis can come.
Even though I have a lot to do, I just feel so calm and relaxed. Like it will get done, don't worry. That horrible time crunch pressure is off. I am getting together with one of my home bound sewing clients to bake Christmas cookies and she is so excited. I am going to sew us Christmas aprons for the fun of it. Just because I can and I want to. Oh, to be able to do something just because I want to is so nice.
I need to go up and get those dishes done, and maybe I can attack to shop and it's bathroom.
Have a great and productive day!
