It's not even Christmas Eve and I'm DONE with all the presents AND wrapping!!!!

I know, you're all shocked... but I really pulled it together this year for some unprecedented organization and planning skills to make sure that I had tons of breathing room between making and buying presents and when the family was to be in town. Of course, all this perfect planning was thrown out the window when Husband had a GENIUS idea 1 week before Thanksgiving that all of his family members should get pretty quilted letters to hang in their foyers this year (making it 5 letters to make instead of 1). This meant an extra 40 hours of sewing to squeeze into my impeccably perfect (and already VERY tight) schedule. I'm not sure if he's learned any lesson though - in the extra time that I've spent in front of the sewing machine this month, he's had tons of extra uninterrupted gaming time on his XBox 360. Ah well.. this was one of the few times this year I didn't automatically exercise the "No" and instead went ahead to see if I could raise to the challenge. Any other arena and I would have said no... but really, I LOVE my new sewing machine so spending extra time in front of it is really not a hardship.

It's not even Christmas Eve - this is really nice :) In a few minutes we're going to meet the rest of the family for yummy Italian food and then my first exercise in weeks which will consist of hauling my big butt around Greenfield Village for the evening. I don't expect there to be many posts over the next few days as everyone is having fun holiday times so I'll go ahead and say "Merry Christmas to all and to all a good day/evening/night".

Just for that extra bit of planning and organization, you get TWO martinis!

BTW, MY quilted letter looks super fabo in MY house, and the extra work was much appreciated! :-)

LOL!..."in the extra time that I've spent in front of the sewing machine this month, he's had tons of extra uninterrupted gaming time on his XBox 360".... I'm sure there was nothing calculated behind that suggestion!
