We recently attended my work Christmas Party,
where I may have gotten up in front of the crowd, along with a few of my co-workers, dressed in a glittered hard-hat and my daughter's old steel-toed boots, and sung a specially written parody to the tune of 'YMCA'.  What a hoot!  It was a fun night~great food, and the Mr even got up and danced 4 or 5 times.  I've been advised not to quit my day job tho, so I guess a singing career is out of the question,  Sigh...


Sunday I had my pre-Christmas meltdown.
I felt overwhelmed and under-prepared.
I felt like the kitchen reno would never be finished
and I am so tired of living with it half done.
Once the tears stopped, I started clearing out stuff~the recycling bins
and reno supplies.
And I decided to make some prettiness in one corner.
My Mom will be visiting over Christmas and I wanted a spot for her to sit
and visit with me when I'm doing kitchen prep.
I'm pretty happy with it! 
As for feeling overwhelmed, I've decided that anything not done now just doesn't matter.
Oh, I'll still wrap presents and do some baking for Christmas dinner,
but that's it!
Mr Pawprint put up my outside lights on the weekend, I've got my cozy kitchen corner,
and I just want to enjoy the prettyful for the rest of the year.
