The Season Rush is Upon Us

With all the decking the halls, cooking, gift wrapping, plays and concerts going on why did I think it was a good time for younger son to take out our 2000 piece puzzle of The Lords Supper we were going to work in this Winter? Lack of sleep and bad judgement if you ask me. In 8 days I will have a house full of people and need the 6 foot table that the puzzle is now on to make Christmas cookies, pay bills, and then decorate with all the food I have yet to even consider buying groceries for :) Lets say I just didn't realize how many 2000 really is until I saw it. Needless to say I am carefully bagging up the end pieces, middle pieces and laying what little we did put together in chunks on to of the box until after the 25th.

Younger son had his play last night. It was wonderful! They did "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" by Barbara Robinson. Younger son played Ollie Herdman and Ollie in the pageant played a wise man. I am going to post a couple of pictures. It was the best costume yet! I didn't have to do anything except make sure his clothes were wrinkled and dirty, his hair was uncombed and messy, and remember the drama teacher's gift. I am usually so stressed about getting him there presentable and getting there unwrinkled it was a nice change of pace!

After this post it is off to do the bills, make lists for the next 8 days, call and make a couple of appointments and oh yea PUT THE PUZZLE AWAY! Can you believe I made a doctors appointment this close to Christmas? My blood work is Monday and I see the doctor on Friday. It is not going to be a pleasant appointment since I haven't been watching what I have been eating for two months or even checked my blood sugar since I have been home from vacation, but I swear after the first of the year I am going to lose weight, quit smoking, quit drinking, clean the house, take care of my health, make healthy dinners for the kids and everything else I should be doing. Well, I don't smoke or drink so I guess I am off to a good head start!

P.S. The John Braden Journal will have to wait to be finished. I finally am giving myself permission to cross one thing off my to do list that doesn't have to be done right now. I will continue with the diary after I am caught up and give it as family gifts next year. To all that have asked, the family cookbook will be restarted in full force right after Christmas. I am guessing a month of typing and then I will send it in.

I admire younger son's sense of timing getting this puzzle out this close to Christmas :-)
