The Weather Outside Is Frightful...
Ice...Sleet...Freezing Rain...Everything but the snow. It was a challenge driving home from work this evening, but I made it in one piece. My cats were sure glad to see me as they swamped me right when I entered through the front door. I was finally able to go to the post office today and mail off 2 packages...I know that I am not in the mood to work on more birds tonight, my left wrist hurts bad from overworking it on all of my previous birdies, and I think I will give my tired hands a couple days before I make new birds. I am lucky enough to post 3 new ones in the last 2 days...I think the Christmas stress is finally getting to me, when I'm at work, many grumpy people shop and take their bad days out on me and my co-workers, and I never expected my etsy shop to take off like it has and keeping up with one's online shop takes so much hard work and alot of time.
My dad traveled about 2500 miles all over the nation, and it worried me, but he is home safe and sound...One car between my hubby and I is very stressful, (my jeep is on "el-fritzo") I'm still not done with my Xmas shopping, my 30-day work elavuation is almost here (Dec. 19th) HOLY CRAP!!! THAT'S TOMORROW! AHHHHHH!!!! And Christmas is a little hard for me because almost 2 years ago, my paternal grandfather passed away on January 2nd, right after Xmas, and it just feels weird that he's not here and I'm a little sad, it hit me like this exactly the same time last year, and I feel it again now, but gratefully not as bad...I guess time just heals. I always love Xmas, but it bites me back at the same time...and my stress level goes up every time in December, it never fails...How about any of you all?
