Well, November kicked off with a bang. I have felt really bad for several days. No fever, coughing or runny nose, but plenty of general achiness, sore throat and ear ache.
Feels like the flu, but with no fever or coughing.
But right now, I feel better. Just a sore throat and a slight headache.
I started a new SFAC project. It is always so exciting to start a new project to raise money for cancer patients.
And now I need to start a ornament for an exchange party I have here. But what to do, what to do?!
I guess I will dig through my patterns and fabric and decide. And probably look online and find a new pattern and then rush to get it done. This year I just can't seem to get into the whole "holiday" thing. Usually by now I am planning for Thanksgiving and Christmas. But Thanksgiving is less than a month a way and I don't have a clue what we are doing.
And Christmas? I haven't bought a single present and have no idea what my grandsons even want. All I know is that they will be here the day after Christmas and will stay with us for a week by themselves. I know they want to go bowling and the oldest wants to make a snowflake craft of some sort.
How are you all doing on your holiday plans? Anyone else in this same sort of standstill that I am in?

Glad to hear that you are feeling a little better! I'm with you...I need to kick into high gear and start my Christmas shopping. I'm definitely feeling behind!!!

I hope you feel 100 percent better real soon.

As for Christmas? I have no clue what I'm doing. Nor for Thanksgiving. And Christmas shopping? This year will be very difficult. With the economy and my empty wallet I am goign to try and make as many gifts as I can. And no I haven't started. :)

Hope you feel much better soon Donna (((((hugs))))). I have a total of three Christmas presents & have stalled. I like the whole idea of the holidays - just don't enjoy the hassle. No plans made at all.
