Let the craziness begin....er, I mean....continue.




 

Now that we're halfway down the slippery slope 
to the Big Day...





 It's easy to get distracted 
from your normal responsible behavior...






Between the weather...








and the noise...








and the never-ending social engagements...








and the freezer stocking...







and the capacity-stretching...








and the toy testing...








and the photo ops...








and the reaching-out-and-touching...







and the search for the perfect gift...








and the figuring out how to pay for it 
once it's found...






and the where to hide it?!
while you're waiting for the big reveal...








I've decided the best plan is probably just 
to loosen up a little...










and enjoy what 
the season has to offer.

Yes, all of it.  






So bring it.   

(you can drop by anytime!)


Happy Mid-December-Monday Madness!

I LOVE that dish drainer picture. Ouch! However, the "loosening the belt" picture was painful on many levels, the chief level being my own mid-section.

Haha! I'm with you. Just loosen the belt,skip the baking and clean-up and chow down on the butter straight from the 'fridge. Yes, dish-drainer--the perfect gift! The presents you bought last July and stashed will turn up next July and you can give them as, uh, Independence Day prizes! (I'm still checking out that double-oven stove. Wow!)

Fun, fun collection of vintage pics.

LOL!!! I'm glad you're going to loosen up and enjoy - me too! Life is too short to get caught up in all the madness! Love that collection of pics...nobody better get ME a dish drainer for Christmas, although that's par for the course, lol! I'll never forget dh getting me the HUGE speakers that turned out to be for his stereo in his garage workshop....
