Happy Happy Sunday!
Just sitting here (well - practically lying, really with my legs flung over the arm of my chair) doing a whole lot o' NUTHIN'! I am SO in love with my life today I can hardly stand it! Ever get that feeling?? You're just SO content that you can hardy contain yourself?? … but you know if you try to do a cartwheel you'll probably blow out a hip so you just walk around with a big stupid grin on your face instead?? That's me today. Yep - got my "I'm RELAXED" face on today!! Aside from a brief wake-up at 1:30 am (when Craig finally came to bed) I slept through the night - MAN that feels good!! I KNOW the reason I haven't slept in 6 months is because I always have some running commentary going on in my head of what needs to be done. When someone or something wakes me up my mind snaps awake and the commentary continues. Not being a "list person" I just keep it all in my head .. and of course it never stops … until Christmas. Yep - it happens ever year. I'm not sure if my the end of December I just don't CARE about what needs to be done or if most things ARE done … but each year I actually relax and have fun. That started Friday at noon, when the kids were finally done school … and I finished the last of my shopping (yes, I was done about a week ago but wasn't happy with what I got my Dad so I found something else I'm much happier with). Yesterday the relaxation REALLY kicked in with our annual Open House for my in-laws. What a great afternoon! After everyone left we all watched Toy Story 2, the girls and I played a quid board game then off to bed. This morning I woke up fully relaxed (still not totally rested but I think THAT would take about 3 weeks on a beach with no electronics to actually happen!), full of love and excitement for the day ahead. I have NOTHING on the agenda for today. NOTHING! My FAVORITE kind of Sunday! Aside from walking Doodles there is absolutely nothing I HAVE to do. I plan to go with the flow, wander the house, do what ever the kids want me to do and generally have fun. How awesome is that??? I wish I could freeze time when I get in this mindset. Everything seems to be in perspective and "as it should be".
So! There has been an obvious lack of projects posted lately, yes? Ya - I haven't done any card-making for weeks! I've been crafting a bit here and there … and Ive received some great gifts from friends this week, so thought I'd just post some of those projects for you. Ready?
Today I'm hoping to get some more crafting and/or card making in. We'll see what happens!
Here is a little gift Alicia and I made for her grandparents and Dad:
Speaking of fun … Trixie and Buttonz have been having a ball around here - and we've been having fun finding them! Here is what they got up to:
This is such a magical time of year. And yes, even though I'm not acid anymore I still FEEL like I'm a kid … and mentally about as mature as a 12 year old…. and that's the way it should be this time of year. A whole lot less of the responsible stuff and a whole lot more of the fun stuff.
Whatever you get up to today make sure you take at least a LITTLE time to be goofy and relax. Where here for a good time!
Have a stampy Sunday!
