I’m reaching the stage of pre-holiday-ness where I think I’m pretty much done with everything when in reality I have so much more to do. I slack off until the last minute and then drive myself crazy trying to get everything done. Part of the reason for starting this blog was to break bad habits and that’s just what I plan to do in this instance.
Here are the holiday cards I made this year. I sent out one batch and then forgot to write and send the rest.
That’s on the to-do list for tonight. I also need to finish up the potholders (I’m madly in love with them so expect lots of pictures tomorrow), make some bookmarks, sew some buttons and crochet some mini cloths.
I have to do laundry, clean my house and make cookies for the work holiday party on Thursday. I have to wrap gifts and buy something for my brother and (hopefully) buy new jeans for me.
I have to spend some quality time with my boyfriend before he leaves for California for three weeks. I have to pack for a weekend at the cabin and a week in Mexico. I have to do all this by Thursday night.
I’m not worried, though. If I worry I’ll get stressed and I don’t want to be stressed. I want to be happy and enjoy the fast paced life I find myself in around the holidays. I want to get everything done so I can relax with my family this weekend. I want to be relaxed for my first ever trip to Mexico. I want to come home to a clean house and work on a lemon yellow (with green accents) bento box quilt…assuming it’s still calling my name after my trip.
My immediate future happiness depends on my hard work over the next four days. It’ll be so very worth it.
