I was hoping it would be a quick bug and seems to have been one. After going to sleep a chilled achy mess, I woke up feeling like myself. So did my children.
How does that happen?
I am glad it does, however the case.
I kept James & Ruby home today as they barely ate yesterday and I wanted them here to get their strength up. I might be regretting that decision just the tiniest bit. :) (it was an early release day anyways....)
Tomorrow will be so fun! They will go to school and I will have the day to wrap, wrap, wrap. Can't wait! I am starting to get the urge to make Christmas cookies, too. yummmmm.
James turns 9 on Friday. NINE! That's crazy talk, isn't it? He had the choice of a big "location" party with lots of friends or a more intimate sleep over with 5 friends. He opted for the latter so we are having 5 boys over on Saturday for a sleep-over and some mini golf fun. Lord, help me. :) I would have chosen the larger "location" party but I think this will be fun, too. He chose a good group of kids who are all buddies so it should go smoothly. And they are getting picked up at 10:00 on Sunday so we will have a day to recover. :) (this kind of stuff exhausts me...you, too??)
While going through my Christmas stuff I found these fabric bags I made to sell at the Craftacular a few years ago. I sold more of them than I thought (or my mother thought) but had a couple left and I'm so glad I kept them. I want to make more! It won't happen this year but maybe next. It was so nice just to stuff a couple gifts in them and be done! :) These contain Ruby presents and I have a feeling she might want to keep the bags afterwards, which is fine. I made them all from flannel pajama pants legs!
My ebay sales were OFF THE CHAIN last week/weekend. :) Things have quieted down again but boy, that was fun. I will post about them soon.
