Fashion/Ministry blogger Peacebang has declared today “an intergenerational, ecumenical Moment of Whining” about all the work we have to do this week to get ready to be happy and thankful. After two weeks of near-perpetual illness, frantic fleece-dyeing, insta-papers, and being too stressed out to sleep, I am more than happy to participate.
It’s 34 days until Christmas and I haven’t started any gifts for the family yet.
It’s 34 days until Christmas and I have 13 obligatory projects that need to be finished before we leave for home.
Four of them have been started.
They’re mostly commissions and gifts, so I can’t even post any pictures of them on the blog to feel victorious about them.
(A couple of them are gifts for YOU, dear blog readers, so I won’t apologize too much.)
I have a minimum of 26 pages worth of papers to write in the next 3 weeks. (In reality probably more like 30-40.)
I have until we leave for home to finish dyeing fleeces, and I’m still looking for Aluminum Sulfate.
I thought I ordered a turkey for Thanksgiving, and I received a 7-lb CHICKEN. (That just hurts.)
What’s your gripe this week? Lay it all out there! We owe it to the rosy-cheeked children in our lives to be smiley and thankful, so get all the kvetch out of your system before they arrive at the door with the paper pilgrim hats they made in Sunday school!
