This was not my choice, but my kids have been watching Christmas movies non stop. I think its comical. And not even the Hallmark ones. The Santa Clause, Home Alone, etc. All of the trilogies. It’s fine. I don’t mind. It’s been fun watching with them. A few of the kids are sick so what else besides sleep are they to do?
While the movies have been playing I have been tying quilts.
I figured that using an embroidery hoop is way easier than setting up a ginormous quilting frame that takes up the whole room. And I get to sit in the comfortable chair. I got the tying done and just have to sew the end up real quick and I’m done with it. One more quilt to go.
Quilting was a good activity for the day for me because my back was killing me. Well, my kidney were the culprit. It usually just lasts a day and just feels like very sore muscles so I wasn’t too worried. Just upped my water intake and went on with life.
Back to the movies, as we finished one my oldest son and I were reminded of Its a Wonderful Life. He got really excited, “Can we watch that tomorrow?” I love that he loves that movie. I never appreciated it until last year. I told him it would be a good movie to watch on Sunday. So that is our plan.
We still haven’t put away the fall stuff and taken out the Christmas stuff yet. I did that early last year and was just so tired of it by the time Christmas came. I love Christmas but kids messing with the tree just aggrivates me. They pull off decorations and they get put back on skeewampus and it bugs me. So I will wait until the traditional Sunday before Thanksgiving.
Speaking of tradition, pie week is next week. For those who aren’t aware of this, it is something my husband started early in our marriage. He loves pie but on Thanksgiving we are too stuffed to eat much of it. So he made up pie week. Thanksgiving week we have a different pie every single night. That way we get a variety and aren’t stuff so we can enjoy it. We’ve got them all planned out. I wish I had my new kitchen to bake them all in but we’ll make do.
Speaking of kitchens, we got the plans all done to our specifications and contract signed and down payment paid. The cabinet guy even held our place while we made up our mind and changed things around. So we should be done with this whole deal hopefully by the end of February.
I was looking at what needs to be done and I think we can squeeze all the drywall and mudding and painting in between when the electric gets done and the flooring goes in. I’m hoping to do that so we can rent a paint sprayer and get the paint done fast without worry of getting any on the new floors.
That’s about all that’s going on in that part of my world. Just a lot of huffy up and wait. Id seems to be that easy gir a lot of life. Oh well. I’ve got plenty to do in the meantime.
