Never enough time in the day

Oh good lord, it's only 88 hours till Christmas!!!! Fortunately, I've only got four or five projects to finish by then. Granted, I've still not started several of them, but still...

Today is December 21st, the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. I'm not entirely thrilled about the winter thing, but I am soooo glad that the 21st is finally here! That means that it can only get better from here...the days will be getting progressively longer, and I can start looking forward to sunshine & warm breezes again. I know, I know, it'll take a while for the warm breezes, but whatever. I need to be an optimist, or I'll go nuts.

I'm also looking forward to January, because I'll no longer have any Christmas-type deadlines, and I can finally take an entire afternoon off to read without feeling like I'm losing time somewheres. Yay! I leave the house as little as possible, mostly due to the cold, and snuggle into blankets & read like crazy all winter. My beloved brings me hot chocolate periodically, the babies play happily with their new toys, and all is right with the world. Sigh.

But back to my current reality...I've got four days, including today, to finish as many projects (more, actually). I believe I'll go get on that before the enormity of the schedule really sinks in...

Don't feel too bad. I've a sneaking suspicion that my sister will be opening a gift of half a pair of gloves tomorrow morning.
