Yikes. Tomorrow is December 1, my personal deadline for getting my Christmas cards in the mail. Guess what? Not going to happen. I'm switching my deadline to December 5.
House update: Bedroom is in shambles. New bed and dressers are up, but new mattress is being shipped, so old mattress is on new bed. (That would be a queen mattress on a king frame - NOT PRETTY.) Exterior of house is finished; landscaping is shambles. Room addition is being drywalled, primed, and painted by K (God bless him). Kitchen would make the FlyLady faint dead away. It's really that bad.
Kid update: Sally is fighting off a cold, but it's a pretty mild one that only really affects her in the morning and at night. I tried to keep her home from school, but she would have none of that. She's just like me in that way. Samuel keeps trying to use the hammer and powertools to help me, and he's been decorating and re-decorating the little tree with the "ments" (that's what he calls ornaments). He's driving me a little nutty, to tell you the truth.
