Sorry I haven't posted. My surgery went really well- I was home the next day. Path results weren't great but it was just as I expected. Waiting to see the next step in the whole plan.
As for Christmas- I survived...barely. My kids were so excited to go to bed on Christmas Eve. I was very surprised because I thought I was going to have a fight on my hands. They all went to bed great. Then, a couple hours later my two oldest (Boys, 8 yrs and 10 yrs) started coming in every 15-20mins because they "couldn't sleep". UGH! I wish I could get them to understand that every time they get out of bed it sets them back and if they would just stay laying down with their eyes closed EVENTUALLY they would fall asleep. No such luck. Finally, at 2:30am my 8 yr old has a MAJOR breakdown. Screaming and crying because he knows Santa won't come until he falls asleep but he CAN'T! Wore him out and he finally fell asleep. But in the meantime woke my little 5yr old girl. ARGH! Slept with her for a while in her bed just to get her to sleep. Finally my husband woke me up at 4:30 to tell me Santa had come. And because he's a kid at heart and couldn't contain his own excitement decided to wake all the kids (even though I just BARELY got them to sleep) and have Christmas morning at 5am. We had planned on 7! Oh well. The kids were happy and it was a nice morning but I'm still re-living Christmas Eve and cringing. Ugh, NEVER AGAIN!
So, how was your Holiday?
I'm going to try and get back to my regular posting but I have a few MAJOR deadlines coming up so I'll do my best!
I'm going to release the Valentine countdown pattern soon and will list it on my Etsy as soon as I do so everyone has a chance to get it and have time to make it before Valentine's Day! :o)
