November was crazy with my daughters wisdom teeth, dance try outs, drivers license etc., settlement on our other house and two craft shows. Even though I work at home I try and put in a few hours every day on the quilt frame working on custmer quilts.
All that and then coming down with a really bad cold I was feeling very stressed out on getting things done and having some time to just rest and relax.
I have decided to do everything I can to make December a more enjoyable and calmer month. The house is decorated, most shopping is done so now it is time to slow down a little bit and enjoy the season.
I have one more craft show to do and I am only going to take on a few more quilts with promises that they will be done for Christmas and then I am going to take a couple of weeks off around Christmas to do what I want.
In the meantime if I don't get all the cards done I want, or if I need to make for dinner whatever is the quickest or even order pizza I am going to try and not sweat it. I want to be able to make time to have lunch with friends, go driving to look at all the pretty Christmas lights and even just sit in front of the TV and watch sappy Christmas movies. Most importantly I want to have time to enjoy my daughters break from school at the holidays. All to soon she will be off on her own and we might not see her every Christmas so I intend to really enjoy them now.
