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.)
