Overwhelmed a little

It's hard not being home for the holidays, you walk back in and it just feels chaotic. I have a mountain of laundry I am working through, tons of toys to find new homes for, and lots of stuff that just needs be cleared out I think. I will probably leave the tree up through Wed, as it will give me time to find some new storage containers for the Christmas stuff.

We had a great holiday, Santa was good to us as always. I am the proud new owner of a Mac laptop, I'm learning Leopard. I'm a little freaked out that we are now exclusively a Mac family with no PCs. Techno barbie (that's me) will probably still attempt a repair at the million yr old PC, but I'm not very hopeful. I doubt it was a software problem, probably hardware on a computer so old.

I was asked before I left to participate in a 4 product challenge for the Studio Calico blog:



I used bits of several different kits. And I fell asleep on reveal night, so that was anticlimactic. I think January is all about evaluating priorities and I think I really need to focus on that. We were lucky to have dh home with us for the holidays and he will be home now for at least 4.5 mons. It has been a long year with him gone so much, and I am so grateful that we can be a family for a little while. Like all good families, we have plans to clean out the garage today. (Ick)

Happy Monday all who stop by!

OHHHH! Cleaning out the garage! Wish I could do that - but bringing quick books up to date for the year is my alternate task! Ugh! A new computer sounds wonderful, and I love your layout!
