Busy, Busy, Busy...

Dash away, dash away, dash away all...
Today is going to be a little bit crazy.

I have 10 snoods to sew and quite a few more to package and ship.  And Sadie and I are going ice skating, which will make it my first time ice skating in... oh... I don't know... 18 years.

I'm wading through the pile of laundry that I ignored during finals week (and the weeks before finals week), when I was washing clothes, and piling them on the table waiting for a spare minute to fold and put away, only half realizing that that spare moment wasn't going to come until after finals were over and I was busily working on Christmas presents, which take priority over laundry.

The high today is 30, which makes it quite different from last Christmas where the high was something like 81.  The security system, which gives little weather reports on its screen around the clock, says "Snow" instead of "Chance of snow showers" as if the storm is already here, so I guess we're supposed to be getting more snow today.  I don't think I could have appreciated the snow and the cold as much as I do if we hadn't had our nearly-tropical year in Naples.  Any time I start to feel cold I just think that it could be 90 degrees and humid and being cold suddenly seems wonderful.  I'm not sure how long that will last (will I still appreciate the cold in February?), but for the moment I'm appreciating the winter weather!

Now to get to work!  We're have a long drive ahead of us and we're going to need to be on the road bright and early!


  1. Being busy seems to be the order of the day lately. Schadenfruede makes me glad to know I am not the only one.

    Hang in there Cam. You’re doing fine.

  2. Sounds familiar... have a safe trip!

  3. Cam, I know you are very busy with the things society defines as important about Christmas, but I am waiting to see a picture of something very important: your girls' first snow angels!


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
