Mixed Feelings.

Category: Uncategorized

The blahs of Christmas have presented themselves. Yuck.

Feeling a bit over-whelmed…still a few Xmas gifts to be bought…for my parents no less…who the heck waits until the last possible moment to buy their parents their gift?…ugh. Drove aimlessly tonight and ended up coming home with nothing.

Mailed Christmas cards just today. Didn’t finish the two mini-albums I had planned to do for our Mom’s.

Starting to feel sick….tired feeling…sore throat…I have impeccable timing. Visions of fevers and sniffles while sitting in a car for 3 days is looking wretched…

No Christmas tree at home, no holiday decorations….just the never-ending repeat of each of us saying to each other, "I can’t wait to get out of this house….only a few more days…"

Last few days at work have been SO busy. So many things to finish up, follow up….my Christmas cookies for the exchange I organized at work were a flop (for me anyway). Again, blaming it on the crappy kitchen in this house. Somehow I imagine my new kitchen will produce *amazing* results.

What a grump I am, huh? Well, there are plenty of positives to remind myself of….

First, A HUGE THANK-YOU to Megan, a member of my Creative Team, and her wonderful package of scrap goodies that I arrived on my doorstep. This holiday greeting TOTALLY made my day. I can’t wait to play with that stuff in my new room when I get settled.

Congrats to my oldest best friend Lauren (I think it’s been almost 10 years now…) on her engagement this weekend! One happy girl and one cute couple! Of course, I’m voting for the destination wedding because EVERYBODY needs an excuse to go to Hawaii…but, I’ll settle for any destination! ;)

And finally, I am so *blessed* to be griping about where I live now and to be able to be so darn anxiously happy about my new house that is waiting for me in TN.

Of course, we’re ready to get a move on…

Wow, I am glad I could add some cheer…can not even imagine trying to move accross country this time of year. I am glad the little package brought a smile. All your hard work will be soon rewarded! xoxo Merry Christmas :)
