That was an exhausting week
on the holiday open house
I think it was more stressful than the wedding
was it that it followed the wedding?
I had fun pulling this together
(the room desperately needed more light)
I did enjoy the time spent
driving and working with my girl youngin'...
she is a great help
(especially with the drill)
but I did not enjoy the pressure of the clock
knowing I had so much to do and so little time to do it in
when I found out that that we re-opened at 4:00
and not 6:00 like I thought
I had a meltdown.
It wasn't as full as I wanted
I didn't make anything christmas-ey this year
(I wouldn't even let myself surf your blogs for ideas)
I hauled over what I had
relied on christmas lights
it's holiday time.
a bit of red and black for tradition's sake
after 2 days recovery time
I am feeling a bit better
and ready to tackle this week.
on the list for this week?
first and foremost is to prepare my heart for our celebration of thanks...make pumpkin pie... homemade fresh pumpkin pie...made with my girls...outside clean-up...I missed fall entirely...and have project stuff still outside...I have to get it inside in some sort of orderly fashion...and did I mention that we had snow here yesterday...that is a good week early for these parts...I am so not ready for it or the artic blast that is coming our way...I need to keep at the layers of stuff that got dumped after the wedding....I am so ready to turn my heart and energy back to home...and last but not least...I need to visit YOU...I have missed blog-hopping and hope to get some in later in the week.
have a great week giving thanks
