Pre-Christmas Frenzy

Yeah, I know I haven't posted since last Thursday.
DH's office Christmas party was nice. Of course, I had the usual HoH issue of trying to hear in a large group of people in a large echo-inducing room. Luckily, most of the people know I'm hard-of-hearing and don't mind repeating themselves. But it is still a struggle and I'm usually very tired after such an affair. There's actually a term for it - listening fatigue. At least there was no background noise there like a stereo blasting Christmas music. That really makes it hard for me to hear.
Over the weekend, DH worked happily on the underbed storage unit. He had to spend half a day organizing his shop enough to make room to use his table saw. I spent Saturday stitching a little Christmas ornament for our oldest nephew. He's a car fiend so I stitched Lightning McQueen. It was not a fun stitch. I don't like stitching things I have no interest in, and a Disney Pixar car is pretty high on that list. But, it was for the nephew, so I endured. Here's a picture of it all finished in a plastic frame I had sitting in a drawer. It's straight in the frame, my picture is crooked.
I spent yesterday and today getting ready for a trip to the relatives for Christmas. Whoopee. A big trick for Christmas traveling in Texas is trying to figure out what the weather will be like wherever you are going . You have to pack for both warm and cold weather which makes your suitcase heavier and more packed. Double whoopee. You have more laundry on both ends of the trip. Triple whoopee.
Y'all have a Merry Christmas!
