so much for that posting roll I was on. I tried, I really did. Well, sort of :)

I'm working on a pair of socks for my brother for Christmas. Had one pair 3/4 done, when I discovered that they are going to be way too small for him. So had to start over again from the very beginning. Now I have the first sock about 3/4 done. Should have the pair done for Christmas - although I did want to do him 2 pair. I'll put in a note that tells him the second pair will come after I see how the first pair fits. Yeah .. that was my plan all along. Wasn't it??

The socks that are too small for him will be finished after Christmas and given to my hubby. They fit him perfectly. Figures.

Christmas is coming much too quickly for my liking. But, there's nothing I can do to stop the progress of time, right?

I have to seam up a pair of slippers for Troy to take to school for his good friend there. She takes care of him when they are in class; makes sure he has what he needs. Outside she makes sure he has someone to play with, and will come and get me if he needs me. She's a good friend for him to have. I was working on some green/white/yellow variegated socks on rainy days at the school, and she was interested in them - so she'll get a pair. Today was an inside day (it was too cold to be outside playing) and she looked for Troy to get him to go and play with her in their classroom. Thank God for girls like her!!

I also have to get two gifts ready for the names that each kid drew in their class. $5 gifts for boys. No idea what to get them! I'm sure I'll find something tonight when I go out shopping. PLEASE!!

Monday night we have a school concert to go to. It was supposed to be this past Tuesday night, but it got postponed because of snow. Tuesday is the kids last day of school. Then it's just 5 days till Christmas.

The 22nd I have to go to Bridgewater for a check-up on my leg. A chance to do some last minute shopping - if I'm brave enough to tackle the stores with two kids in tow.

Oh yes, my leg. On Friday I had my varicose veins stripped. Got storm stayed in Bridgewater over night. Spent the night at a friends house; which was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We stayed at my friend Elizabeths MIL's house.

Guess that's it for now.

it's good to see you posting! You are a brave mom to be thinking of shopping on the 22nd with two kids in tow. I can't believe how quickly Christmas has come upon us either. It's magic, I think, the way time goes so quickly.
