There are HOW any days til Christmas?

Geez, time is flying by. I had gathered some resolve to get back to more cohesive blogging come today, but…the short kid has some kind of stomach crud which seriously dented my resolve. Sleep deprivation does not equal cohesion.

We’re finally having some snow flurries today. It was too warm for the big storm to hit us as snow, so we’ve been suffering through 60 degree rains. The good news—:sled: season starts the 15th and we need to start stockpiling the white stuff to make the hubby happy. The bad news—it’s snowing on my Mustang right now, which reminds me getting it into storage is something I need to bump up on the to-do list.

At some point I’ll also have to start Christmas shopping. :hide: This is one of the times the age difference between my boys really shows. The tall kid’s list only has like three things on it, but they’re all a gazillion dollars each. The short kid has three handwritten pages, front and back, with no allowance for spacing or straight lines. Yeah, good luck reading that, Santa. And he’s gotta be up to about two gazillion dollars now. He also took it upon himself to make the cats a list, as well.

EDITED TO ADD: Well, crap. I just stopped by Jordan’s and she mentioned not having addressed Christmas cards yet. Crap crap crap. Yet another thing to add to the To Do NOW list…if I ever find it.

    Maybe you’d be less stressed if you never found the To Do NOW list?

    Heh. Tell me about it. I’ve got a Jan. 1 deadline that no way in hell can I make if I do Christmas, too. :crazy: Cards? Hah!
    Shopping? :baby: Tree? At least hubby said he’d and #5 would do it, and I said, “You’re on.”

    But right now, looking at this set of galleys I also have to do, I’m totally :beam:
