Taking a big breath

What a hectic couple of weeks I've had. I've become one of those people that I gripe about 'i can't believe they haven't posted on their blog for so loooong'. I should know by now that you NEVER get down on anyone for anything cause it will ALWAYS come back to bite you on the butt. So tonight I'm spending some quality time with all my rowdy friends. Okay, it's just me but I'm watching Monday Night Football with millions of my closest football loving friends (again I ask myself, how do I end up with a house full of men and not ONE likes to watch football?). Payton Manning is such a little cutie.
So what have been doing for the last 20 days?
*The weekend of the 12th I took Pat out to my folks so he could do a little deer hunting, yes we have some venison in our freezer.
*The ladies barbershop chorus I sing with (The Belles A'Peelin) had our 2nd annual show on Saturday the 19th so the week before that was spent practicing and decorating. I also had my carpets cleaned that week so I had to do some cleaning before they were cleaned, never made much sense to me but my good buddy Steve the carpet cleaner insists I vacume BEFORE he cleans the carpets.
*Then last week was spent cooking and cleaning (some more) and getting ready for Thanksgiving. My family came for a few days and a good time was had by all.
*Yesterday - Sunday - I literally crashed, did nothing whatsoever allllll day.
*Today I spent some quality time in my craft room. Started working on some Chrismas presents. I also sell bookmarks that I make to our local book store and started making some more to drop off this week. If you're ever in Nebraska City you MUST drop in and visit the ladies at The Book Clinic, one of the most wonderful little book stores you'll ever run across.
*I've given myself permission to put off my Christmas decorating till this weekend. Usually have it done by this time but I NEEDED to take a BIG BREATH after the last couple of weeks.
*Haven't shared any words of wisdom from Mr. Clemons lately so I thought I'd close with this....Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it.

I had to take a nap. The last couple of weeks have just been hairy, so it's nice to read that it's not just me! Good idea taking a break and worrying about Christmas next weekend - plenty of time, plenty of time! Love the photo of your new scrap space, too!
