Anyway, here's what I've been up to...
-Crocheting. I'm trying to get Daughter's blanket finished in time for it to still be cold enough to use. Good news is, I'm almost done.
-Reading. After slogging through November writing too much to have time for reading, I'm trying to catch up.
-Baking. I know I said I wasn't going to bake this year because I don't need the extra poundage, but I can't help myself. So, I made three batches of Cake Cookies and gave them all to my new neighbors. They've got kids, so I'm not ruining her diet either.
-Shopping. The big holiday is almost here and this is Daughter's last Christmas before she's off to college.
-Gifting. I didn't bake for everyone this year like I usually do, but I did find some inexpensive toffee treats to hand out to the most special acquaintances. Plus, I signed and mailed cards. Fun fun fun.
-Celebrating. Daughter got accepted to Colorado State. Not only that, but she got invited to apply to the Honors Program.
-Kvetching. Due to some irritating things happening in the ol' personal life, I've been feeling like a whiny bitch and no one wants to listen to my kvetching - least of all, myself.
-Cat Mothering. Max had to go back to the vet again. His poor mouth is still a mess and it always will be, but this time around, he had an abscess that needed meds. So, I get to squirt antibiotics into his mouth every morning. On the upside, he's eating like a champ again, now that the meds are working. Yay.
It's been a busy time around here, but that's no excuse for neglecting all of you. I'll try to do better. Tomorrow look for a post on making excuses or maybe one on letting fear get the better of you. In the meantime, check out Colene Murphy's butt-whooping post on dealing with fear.
