    You are still posting pics in the picture section! Don't you have parties to go to, cookies to bake, and presents to wrap? A house to clean, a granddaughter to read to, a dog to walk and wreaths to make? How can you still be sewing and sewing and sewing??!! I've got to get my granddaughters' Christmas pants hemmed yet !!

    Maybe we never sleep! I get up alot of nights, cause I cannot sleep... My head is spinning too much, So.... I go in my sewing room and sew for a couple of hours and then I'm sleepy again! Some how we always find a way to do it if our hearts are in it!

    Me too! I have ceased to worry about everything being up-to-date or finished. I am learning to chill out.

    Nope I do not have any of this except a house to clean, wish I did..... Count your blessings.This board is one of my blessings , it keeps my mind off of not so pleasant topics.

    Oh and my oven took a big crap last week Lol,no kidding,my new one comes tuesday and I return to work 12 hr night shifts wed,so no baking either, Not that anyone would eat it but me so that is a blessing in disguise,cause I do like to bake.

    Well, I had a cat to take to the vet yesterday, and he has to go back on Saturday and again on Monday. Luckily I'm retired, so I have more time than some. DH is working on a bathroom remodel, however, that must be done by Christmas for our DDs when they come with their loved ones.

    I'm just making one batch of cookies about every other day. Cleaning will wait till just before guests arrive. Love to check out the forum on breaks!

    I'll be much more stressed a few days before Christmas!

    I don't go to parties, maybe that is why. LOL!:mrgreen: But I do have a granddaughter and grandson both that love to be read to, gave up cleaning because both grandbabies live with us and it is a hopeless job keeping up with an extremely curious and active toddler boy. LOL!! We don't have a doggy, just kitties and they are terrified of the outside world, so I don't bother walking them. :mrgreen: And I have absolutely no talent with flowers, live or aritificial. In fact, I have a thumb that kills most every plant it touches. DD loves to make cookies and I just get to enjoy eathing them. LOL!!!

    My problem is just like yours. I can't stay away from the pictures posted here. I am constantly getting new ideas and adding them to my every growing list.

    Forgot to add about presents.....I hope to get them wrapped by Christmas Eve. I have 5 more quilts to finish before I even think about wrapping gifts.

    Pin the Christmas pants and get back to what is important, sewing. LOL Maybe we are not getting the other stuff done. I seem to get everything half done. As long as I get my DD's 20 quilt done for Christmas that was supposed to be done for when she went off to college and then for her birthday. Hopefully this Chirstmas.

    If I don't get my 8 hours a night I'm such a witch!! I'm very grateful to sleep through. Better for the world around me LOL
    I'm having a strange Christmas season this year and am just going with the flow. Not stressing out like I usually do.

    All year long I do some type of cleaning daily. I cannot stand disorder & cannot work in a cluttered space. LOL I do not have a busy social life as my kids & grands are my life. Fit DH & my wonderful parents in there too. LOL I have not started cookie making but am going to start this evening. I will make a couple kinds of candy tomorrow & that is it. I have not got 1 gift bought or ready, but I will do that on Monday & Tuesday of this next week. I just don't have the energy to stress out. What gets done will get done & what doesn't...won't. LOL We will survive either way.

    I have one queen quilt to finish quilting, some doll quilts and stockings to make, decorting to start, 5 more stuffed animals to make and I just sew when I want. Fabric is my lifetime enjoyment.

    I believe in the CHAOS theory--can't have anybody over syndrome. Saves a lot of work }:o)
