21 December 2007

It's a good thing I didn't write this morning. I was weepy and having a pity party. And that was after putting on makeup. Then I read Crusty's blog and cried again. But that was then.

Today was so long. It felt like 12 hours instead of 8. Two 11-7 days in a row are very hard. Especially when you're eating cookies and candy and donuts between clients. Sugar high and sugar low. There's just so much food in the salon this time of year. Anyway, today went smoothly. No cancellations, no no-shows like yesterday. I have brought home an unbelievable amount of gifts, and they're spread out around the tree. Actually, they're the only things under the tree as I haven't done any wrapping yet. I have some work to do. I'll wrap all of Emily's because the unwrapping is so fun. The rest of the gifts will go in fancy bags. I don't anticipate it taking too long.

I can't wait till the work part of tomorrow is over. No Borders, unfortunately. I'll miss that, but there's too many people out shopping and the parking lot will be crazy. I'll stop by Starbucks on my way home to get the caffeine I'll need. Tomorrow starts the cooking for Sunday's dinner.

My plan for the remainder of the night? Wrap a few gifts to bring to work tomorrow, then read the blogs I'm so behind on. I'll be back tomorrow!

I have all the stuff to make some Christmas fudge, but my sister sent me a bunch of it too. I'll probably go ahead and make mine, since it's slightly different than hers. LOL

I'm done with everything. I don't have to get out again before Christmas if I don't want to.

I haven't had my weepy, pity party yet but I always have one about this time of year. Your gifts will be beautiful and the Sunday dinner will be delish. I so admire your ability to make things happen.

Well, I finally sent your card. I do hope it gets there in time for Christmas. If not, you will have a belated Christmas card. Hope you don't work too hard.

Pity parties this time of year are a good way to help with stress. Pretty much anything that prompts a good, emotional release is helpful!

CRUSTY MOM-E said...

Oh Cheryl - I'm sending you big hugs. You must have been feeling pretty overwhelmed. I hope tomorrow goes by quickly and smoothly for you.

PS - Your card is GORGEOUS! I love it, thank you so much. After Christmas is over I'm going to hang it on my bulletin board, because it's pretty enough to keep up all year round.

I had a pity party about two weeks ago. It was the first time that I cried in years.

I hope today goes by quickly for you. The work part that is!

2 days of cookies, candy and donuts? No wonder you felt weepy. Gets me every time. ;)

Glad you are feeling better!
