Well, another Christmas has come...and gone.
For our family, Christmas is always insanity. Both my husband & I come from split families, so trying to ensure that we can spread our love to everyone, we end up over-booked & over-tired. we had 6 Christmas gatherings in 3 days, as well as one the week prior, and one the week after. This doesn't include our work Christmas gatherings.
To add to the mix, I was in a frenzy trying to complete all the orders I had for the holiday season. I managed, just. Between work, life & a 3-year old, well...you know...
AND, as a final topper, we are moving.
Yes, we have finally found a home for all of us. We are moving out of our tired, drab & oft-drafty little basement hole into a town house. Unfortunately, we are still renting, but at least we won't have to wonder if we will have hot water each day, or if there will be a flood in the middle of the night. No more light bulbs popping because there is water in the ceiling, no more crazy ripped & torn flooring to poke holes in our socks, and no more wearing winter coats inside!
I have had to stop taking orders, and tell a couple people that I simply do not have time to complete the projects they were hoping for, but this is really for the best.
Lastly, I took the money I received as gifts this Christmas and booked my MCQ, one of the two tests I have to complete to become a registered member of my chosen profession. I booked it for April, so I have time to move, get settled, and refresh on the two years of material that I seem to have forgotten since I left school.
There are LOTS of good things coming our way this year, I can just feel it!
