Crafty Christmas Panic!!!


The crafty crisis was averted and, yesterday, I found my crafty stride.

But then last night, the panic set in and I started thinking that perhaps I should just try to get this crop of gifts ready for next Christmas since there is no way I'll be ready for this one!!!

Ugh!  Must push through the panic.  I can do it.  I can make gifts for every single person I've ever met (and a few I haven't) while also:
  1. Taking care of the Kid-who-refuses-to-recover-from-the-sick-bug.
  2. Entertaining the plumber this morning while he (God willing) fixes our kitchen sink.
  3. Responding to frantic email messages and phone calls from college students who waited until the very last day of the semester to start the individual project that comprises 25% of their grade.
  4. Grading a week's worth of assignments (for 98 students).
  5. Computing final grades (for 98 students).
  6. Assisting with a preschool party the same day that final grades are due (for 98 students).
  7. Preparing for my parent's visit (because they are SO hard to deal with).  (TeeHee--Just kidding)
I'm sure there's more, but the sad part is that I can't even remember what it might be.  I know that I'm not alone in my busy-ness or panic.  I'm sure that others out there must have lists three times as long as mine. 

I just know that I had better get off here and get busy because I just thought of three other things to add to my list and the heart palpitations are beginning!

Have a terrfic (and calm) day!
