As many of you know, the past 2.5 months were extremely, extremely busy and stressful for me as I travelled for work constantly. Things have started to calm down and I am returning to my regularly-scheduled life and I couldn't be any happier! There is a lot left on my running to-do list but I am marking things off at a steady pace. Such a good feeling. My house is pretty clean (I still have one junk room that I am going to tackle this weekend), my Christmas shopping is half-way done (what would I do without the internet), the stockings are not hung by the chimney with care but all the decorations are ready and waiting (I always wait until after Thanksgiving to decorate), and I finally ordered my Christmas cards today (after months of debating). Take a peek at the cards - oh and please excuse the editing job!
After work today I am running over to the closest "city" to do a little bit of necessary shopping. I do not have a coat. It was 22 degrees last night and poor, pitiful me does not have a coat. In all fairness, I have some fleeces and a north face jacket but those aren't exactly practical for work. I used to have 2 pea coats, a red one and a black/white tweed one, but they both have mysteriously disappeared. I cannot live without a decent coat for one more day so that is my mission. I really also need a couple of new turtlenecks and a sweater or two because with it being this chilly in November we might be in for a long winter ... even in Georgia. Maybe I should also spring for some new gloves and a scarf. Stay warm!!!
PS: If I am going to freeze my tail off I would really, really like to see some snow this year ... especially around Christmas. So if any of you Northerners would like to send some my way, I will take it :)
