Getting to Close

I look at the calendar and I just do not believe that it is only 16 days until Christmas…. I look at my shopping list and think – OH! MY! I have so much done… but yet so little. Is that possible? I am down to crunch time so it seems. I have what I can get so far… I am down to waiting for my Dec. 15th payday to get the rest of the presents I need. No panic attack yet... but I feel one approaching.

I am lucky enough this year, to get to take off the whole week of Christmas. 9 days off of work – that is a huge present itself. During those 9 days, I am going to be re-painting and re-decorating my daughter’s room. AGAIN! I told her this year it had to be something that would last until she finished high school. She/we chose a black and white theme. Yes I am painting her bedroom walls black. This may freak me out a bit…. Black walls… I don’t know if I can handle it…. I think I have a ton of ideas… we are really going to try and get everything out of there that is not needed and re-organize the room. I am hoping to complete the project in 2-3 days. I am a stay up all night until it gets done type of person, so it may be possible. I hope the weather cooperates… I am already thinking about painting things. I will take before and after pictures.

I recently painted our bathroom walls black. All the trim and woodwork is white. It looked cool, but still was a bit much, so I put up (or should I say that I directed hubby to put up) beadboard and painted it white. Now I love, love, love that bathroom! So dramatic!! I bet her room will turn out lovely. :)

Aww, I remember when my Mom and I would completely redecorate my room. It was always so fun! But I'm like you, I am a stay up until it's done type person. Each time we have moved, I will not sit down or go to bed until EVERYTHING is unpacked and in it's place. After moving days, I always need a weeks vacation, which coincidentally has happened the past couple of times that we have moved. Anyway, have fun decorating! I wish I could still do that with my Mom...
