Okay, two people today whom I love and admire very much asked "What's wrong with you? Are you all right?", because there's been no new post since last Wednesday!
I have been "sewing like a mad woman" and having sew many of my projects take more time that I wanted them to (or the directions said they should!), only to have to put aside malformed, mis-sewn, totally screwed up bits of evidence of time I can never get back.
It's too late to start over and I'm spending time frustrated when I could be spending it enjoying my family and friends.
Nutz to anymore handmade gifts this year! No pencil roll ups (Leslie, I needed your mojo on this one!), no more fabric baskets, no cute messenger bag and the quilt for Aunt B is looking more and more like a birthday present. LOL

Part of the equation is the amount of time I need to spend with my kids. Homeschooling is fun, but it can be time consuming! Especially when you're learning Cartesian coordinates and how to graph perpendicular lines, and find the standard form of the equation of the line.
It's okay. I'm clueless too most of the time. LOL
Another all day event was celebrating our state's 193 birthday with Bean's class.
Bean and then here are some of the kids from our group.
And a rotunda I would love to have as a quilt!
It was an all day event our school was honored to be a part of. Over 700 kids from all over the state. We even got to see "Our Man Mitch" pouring his own cuppa Joe and he had all the kids in our group come in his office and talked to them and signed their little activities passport book.
Saturday was an all day trip to a town that Time forgot. Ever see the movie "Hoosiers"? Well, we played in a gym straight from the 40's/50's. It was awesome! The scenic drive south, the houses and Christmas decorations of the town felt like we had stepped back into Life as Norman Rockwell would have known and painted it.
Sunday...day of rest? LOL
Monday...co-op, Christmas accessories shopping, and "Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince" movie night.
Tuesday...well, I have two botched projects on the table and I'm not going to go look at them again! Except to place them in the trash bucket!
Sew, now I'm back to where I started.
Tonight is a choir concert for Middlest's friend at school. She is very cute!
Tomorrow is a day of work around the house and trying to remember where the washer and dryer are.
Thursday is the Christmas program at Bean's school.
And Friday, well, I'm going guilt free shopping for two nieces, an aunt, a nephew and whatever else needs shopped for manufactured by someone else who's probably not on the "naughty" list like me!

Because I'm trying really hard to celebrate and remember what the real Reason of the Season is all about!
Love. Hope. Joy. Peace.
