I worked pretty good on Christmas Eve Fun this past weekend. I'm now onto the lower half of the pattern! Yaaaay! Unfortunately there are tons of color changes. I think I spend almost as much time staring at the pattern trying to decide what color to stitch on next as I do actual stitching. Here it is:
I'm working most evenings on getting all my old paperwork and bills either shredded or filed. The first in many steps to getting the house ready to sell. This is major in that it will eventually clear out the corner of my dining room where I had stacked some bankers boxes and just threw mail and paid bills into. As I go through stuff I'm amazed at the amount of junk mail that I never bothered to open or throw out when it came in the house. Think how much better it would have been if I'd just delt with the junk mail when it first came into the house!
We got a pretty good snow storm last night. About six inches over night. I was down to the gym for a session with my trainer when it started snowing. When I left the gym an hour and a half later I got to scrape 2 inches of snow off of my car. Ugh. I didn't have any gloves so my hands were good and cold by the time I got in the car and was ready to roll. Next up, it was a typical snow commute home. Very very slow with a handful of idiots going too fast thrown in. It can be a bit stressful driving in those conditions and I was looking very much to getting home and having some dinner. It took about an hour and a half to go those 25 miles from the gym to get home. And when I did... some one was parked in my assigned covered spot! Are you kidding me!? I must admit that as this point I was very very angry. Snow, commute, more snow, stress... and some one has parked in my spot. So I had to park out in the uncovered visitor parking, with it still snowing. I left them a note: "In the future, please refrain from parking in my assigned spot. Thanks." They left a few hours later (I kept checking) and then I got to dig my car out from it's snow blanket again and move it to my spot. Grrrrr.
Okay, whine off. I'm going to work on Crabby All Year now. (Yay!)
