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.
