Its time for the white rabbit!

I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!

I'm not, but I am, and this is rather how I feel lately.  I'm a bit dizzy running around trying to get it all done, but I am determined to get it all done - even the last minute orders coming in hoping for Christmas delivery.  If I can possibly manage it, I will get those done as well...

I think I may have run myself mildly into the ground though.  I slept all weekend.  And unfortunately, that's not much of an exaggeration.  I literally slept from about 10-11pm Saturday night through till 1pm Monday morning with only about 1-1.5 hours of "awake" time in there.  And I hesitate to even call the stupor I was in anything resembling awake.  I was upright, able to walk, and semi-able to converse, but that was about the extent of my awakeness.

I'm fairly certain I'm fighting off something, but I haven't the slightest clue what - and so for now am determined to go on the theory of denial.  If I don't acknowledge it, then whatever is trying to brew itself can just hold off till I am home, the holidays are here, and I can afford a few days to be sick.  :-) 

Has everyone gotten their Christmas shopping done yet?  I'll admit to having mine done - but I have not yet begun to sit down and actually put the gifts together or do my part of them.  I keep thinking "I have time, I'll get it done, and yet, here I am on December 15th, only 10 days left to go till Christmas - 3 days left till I travel back to Virginia (which means 1 gift has to be done by the 18th and 1 has to be done by the 19th) and 3 gifts still to complete. 

At least I've sort of managed to cook!  I started a pot roast Saturday night, and so that was dinner for J on Sunday and for both of us last night.  Today I'm using the leftover broth and starting a stew/soup for dinner tonight and tomorrow.  Then I have to individually pack the rest of the meats to go in the freezer, bleach the kitchen, and then get my tush to work!

Have a great day everyone! 

(Still no word on the shipping mess, I'm hesitant to worry too much about it beyond using a different post office until I get back here in January and know what the resolution was.)

Happy Crafting!

Today we will have our shopping done... lol we started yesterday!

I know how you feel, I'm either not sleeping or sleeping for days at time. I think its pure exhaustion that sets in.. probably not good for the body.

Just remember to relax.. lol if my husband knew I was saying that he would tell me to follow my own advice :p

Enjoy your holidays!

Yeah. I think I've reached the stage of the game where sleep is going to become impossible until Thursday when the last of my holiday packages go out. Then I can sleep for a day before driving home.

definitely not good for the body - but what can ya do? lol

I won't tell your hubby if you don't! :-D
