Bah Humbug! =o)

Just a few randoms. I'll get more of the tree and decorations when the house is cleaner. lol. Hubby and I are finishing up house stuff tonight...moldings and moving the computer to another room. I'm off tomorrow and Monday so everything else will be finished in the next 2 days..if it isnt, screw it. Still no sign of the Christmas Spirit for me...perhaps I'll find it in a bottle? Just kidding..when the gifts are wrapped, the gazillion piece dollhouse assembled, entire house is clean and decorated..then I'm sure I'll get into the spirit of the season....maybe...bah humbug!

Where's the bright side?

I am trying to look on the bright side and cant find one. It seems like whenever I have a few days off in a row, I get sick. Am currently enjoying a week off work...and I have strep. So much to do and my meds are making me sleepy. There is STILL a layer of plaster dust...a much thicker layer...on every surface in the house, the painting isnt done, floor isnt level and the carpet is being put down on Wed. I have 2 days...and right now I just want to sleep.
Whine over.

I can haz pretties!

Lookee what I got! I bought this for myself a while back on bidz..first time ever on the site...and it arrived today. Peridot is Eric's birthstone plus I just love green. Now I have to get one with Em's and Abby's birthstones too! It just wouldnt be fair if I didnt.
It sparkles ever so much. I love buying stuff for ME! $11...I'm worth it. =o)

Time off!

I have decided to take a week off work to get things done. Most of the time off will be spent helping my dad and stepmom who are recovering from recent knee replacements. I also owe my mother, who does all of my sewing and listens to me whine regularly, a good house cleaning....and I volunteered to decorate her house and trim her tree. My week off now seems not quite long enough. The carpet guys are coming on's Friday and the plastering isnt done yet...tomorrow I have to paint the areas that are to be carpeted, paint the computer desk, reroute all of the wiring for the internet/computer and perhaps get some cleaning done. There is a thin layer of plaster dust on every surface in the house and a gross grimy chalky layer of floor leveling cement on all of the floors. I've swept and swiffered but cant really do much else until the dirty work is done.
Emma and I have a shopping day on Sunday. Hoping to finish up my shopping then...planning another shopping day with hubby some evening next week to finish up what I cant buy with Emma present and thats it. I'd love to be done by mid Dec.
Here are a few pics that I ordered multiple prints of. The first is my sisters horse Mick...I give her a sepia pic every year, framed, of random mostly, her cat once, now its the horses turn. The three of the kids are the best of a whole bunch that I took so grandparents will get framed copies of those. I totally forgot to order copies for myself. duh. Perhaps Santa could bring me a new printer. =o)
