Just Stuff

So I realize the last post I made was on Thanksgiving. Wow, that long ago? Sorry!
Also, I realized I never posted pictures of my babysitting experience. In my defense, I can tell you that I have watched the baby at least 3 or 4 times since my original post and I just can't seem to play catch up with postings and pictures. Am I enjoying it, you ask? Heck yes I am!!
Did you go out shopping on Black Friday? Or should I say Thursday night? I did a little, but not like in years past. Honestly, I was NOT fan of the early openings and, most of all, the stupid staggered start times of sales within ONE store. I wanted something that went on sale beginning at 10:00 Thursday night and something that didn't go on sale til midnight at Wal-Mart. Needless to say, I went to 2 different locations and got to hit both start times. However, I still didn't like it.
Work is keeping me extremely busy these days. I know; that's a good thing. Unfortunately, I just can't seem to get caught up. It drives me nuts. My mind races regarding what to tackle first.
My house is chaos. I've started decorating, but only do a little at a time. I WILL be done by this weekend. We're supposed to get snow tonight so maybe that will put be in more of a decorating state of mind.
Do you Pinterest? Man, that site is full of CRAZY good stuff. I can't seem to get enough. Even my almost 13 year old is getting interested. It's THAT bad at our house (haha).
Speaking of Pinterest, I've got a list of craft projects I'd like to tackle before the holiday gets any more closer. Ha, that's kinda funny once I read it out loud! We'll see how that goes.
I sure wish I had realized 2 posts ago that it was my 100th post. Ugh. I can't believe I missed such a milestone. I'll try to watch better for when I reach 150. I'll bring that to your attention when it happens :)
I hope you're having a great week. Enjoy!

1st Babysitter

Tomorrow I get to babysit for our new grandson. I will be his 1st babysitter.
I'm super excited. I can't wait to have him all to myself for about 3 hours. I'm sure I'll take a few pictures of the cute little 7 week old precious one!
I can already tell you what my next blog post will be about...the babysitting experience!!
Until then....

Black Friday; or is it Thursday?

Do you believe Black Friday is approaching so quick? Do you like to Black Friday shop? Well, pretty much this year, with some stores starting their sales on Thursday, it gives the start of Christmas shopping a whole new name in my eyes.
So, what do you think about the earlier start for some of the sales? I'm not diggin' it at this point. I don't mind getting up at 3:00-4:00 to get in line for some good deals. I just don't see myself staying up all day Thursday to get started at 10:00 at night and then going til who knows when. Ugh.
I could be jumping the gun. Heck, I don't even know if there will be much that I want to get this year.
Over the years I've found that sometimes it's more fun to just go and TRY to get good deals;
rather than to EXPECT to get good deals. That can make for some pretty disappointing shopping experiences.
One thing is for sure. I WILL be out shopping; I just don't know what time I'll get started.

Today I'm wondering just how many projects I can start and not finish. That just seems to be my "normal" lately. I can't stay focused on one thing. It's frustrating.
I've got piles here and piles there. Piles, piles EVERYWHERE! Ugh...it doesn't make sense.
Example: I'll start organizing and straightening one room and when I head to another to put something away, I stay in that room and start a project. Why do I do that? It makes for a long day of getting nothing done. NOTHING.
I know what you're thinking about now - Get off the computer and get back to one of the many projects you have going on. Ok, ok I'm going to. Just as soon as I check Facebook and see what's new on Pinterest. Ha!
Hopefully my next post will be more positive and I might even be able to let you know what I've gotten accomplished.
Until then.....Happy Weekend!!
