I cannot wait for this week to be over! Between baking for both Jaina AND Jayce's classroom parties this coming Thursday and baking for the MOMS Club cookie exchange tomorrow, I am so done. If I never see another brownie, cookie, or cheesecake in my life, I'll be good. I also have to clean my house for tomorrow, and I mean "company clean". I went ahead and steam cleaned the couch. The water it picked up was orange from the damn red clay we have here tracked in by our lovely dog. Disgusting. I can't believe I sit on that thing. And the kids bathroom? Desperately in need of cleaning! Add that to my list, too. And do you think I should hide the 4 loads of clean laundry or actually put it away before tomorrow at 4 PM?
If you couldn't have told, I am kinda freaking out a bit. I'm not done Christmas shopping, I have to buy and mail presents to Florida (Melissa, I STILL don't know what to get the boys, nothing I find seems "right" to me!), I'm stressing about what to get Brian because I don't think my budget will allow me to buy him what I want. Ugh. Shouldn't the holidays be about relaxing with the family and the joy of giving?
Things should settle down next week. After Friday, no school for the kids, no work for Brian, and no commitments for me!! :)
