so tired

Wow, I must be totally out of my mind. I actually went out shopping today. Saturday. Saturday, 3 weeks before Christmas. At like, 2 pm.

I went to WalMart, Target, Joann Fabrics, and AC Moore. There are no greater hotbeds of Christmas activity than those 4 places, I'm pretty sure. It took me 3 hours to get through 4 stores, and I knew exactly what I wanted before going in. SO! MANY! PEOPLE! I could never do all my Christmas shopping in real stores. It's bad enough that I have to supplement my online shopping with a few trips to brick & mortar places. At least I was able to go when Hubs was home to stay with Daughter. She would never have held up if I'd had to drag her through all the craziness.

Anyway. So much for my weekend knitting time. I sewed all night, trying to finish up some more gifts (almost done!), and tomorrow is tree day! Yay! Tomorrow is also fix-the-leaky-ceiling-in-the-bathroom day. We'll be cutting a hole in the bathroom ceiling to try and find where the leak is coming from, fixing...something...and then patching the hole. Maybe. Hopefully the result will be a nice, smooth, pretty ceiling and not divorce. (Kidding!) (Sort of.) (No, really kidding.)

I did the same thing! And I thought the SAME THING while I was out. It was nutso.

May the home improvement gods be smiling upon you today.

Hopefully it was just a small hole? You should see the holes my husband put in our ceiling to put in the can lighting. I'll post a picture as soon as we get somewhat organized here. I think he cut something like 7 squares out of our ceiling. It looks fine now, but I almost fainted when I walked into the room right after he cut into it...fortunately, we too are still married:)
