What time is it?

What a WONDERFUL week, FULL and BUSY, but wonderful all the same! Christmas has my mind churning with many thoughts of contentment and discontentment and the motivation that drives me through each day.... I hope to share more later.



Let me paint the scene at my house right now just for kicks... it is 3:11am and I am (obviously) still awake and it is Saturday night, NO it is Sunday morning! :0) The tv is on keeping me company, the Christmas tree lights dancing in the living room, all little ones are sleeping and I am painfully still holding my eyes open against their will. Dark navy blue paper, scissors, tape, rulers, pencils and paper weights lay on my kitchen floor awaiting me to finish their design. Me, the MAJOR procrastinator, has found herself cramming into a few hours what must be done by tomorrow for 100's to gaze upon. I completely underestimated the amount of time that I would take to complete this project. My little Superman is Wiseman #1 (and is nervous) in our Nativity play tomorrow evening and I was asked to create a back drop to add a little more dramatic essence to the scene. I was excited to do it and still am but am beating myself up once again for my outrageous lack of organization with my time. I always think that I will beable to start something at the last possible minute and finish it in plenty of time... and I always find myself right here in stressful agony. It is now 3:27 and my continual procrastination is leading me further down it's miserable path...

...been there sister! Praying for you, that God will redeem the rest you need. It will work out, just look for the lesson and don't beat yourself up too much for it. Praying for your family...our pageant is next Saturday night! We're doing "The Surprising Christmas Pageant."

"Let me paint the scene"...you're cracking me up. The backdrop looked fantastic! I've got a cute picture of Superman saying his lines that I'll have to send you.
