Desperate Yet?

I don't think I've ever gone into a holiday season quite so disorganized. I'm happily writing along here, and my cards are 33% made, my address list is not assembled, and what am I doing? I'm listening to Swordspoint on audio book (wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!!! and highly recommended) and writing two stories that are a bit out of my box. I have a repair sitting next to me that was due last week and that I'm promising for next week, and I have so much still to do. Do I not care?




I just love these lighted Christmas icicle ornaments. How kewl is this?

I'm not really sure why I'm so lethargic right now. I feel as if the wheels within wheels that we all live in are just spinning wildly now and I'm just running along the outside of them. Not really participating, just experiencing.



So, my cards may be late. Well, I can live with that - it's not the end of the world and they will be mailed, not sit in a drawer the way that friends of mine have done in years past. But, as I get older, I'm finding that I need to sometimes pay attention to me and I guess that's what I'm doing right now. Silly me! I must be calender challenged :-)
That Swordspoint audiobook is definitely addictive! I've found myself stealing bits and pieces of time to listen to it.
I really should be using it to force myself onto the treadmill. One of the more successful times I worked out 3x/week was when I allowed myself to listen to books while I worked out. The last major one I did was the unabridged LOTR. But Swordspoint - well I just love the extras. And she does such a great job differentiating voices - she must have been wonderful reading stories to children, if she ever did in her life.

I'm almost at the point where I prefer her voices for Richard and Alec to the actors' (though I see where having the voice actors for multiple character scenes is very helpful.)Today I'm all a-dither about the music and sound effects, though. The music when Alec is about to be kidnapped - AWESOME. Very creepy and ominous!
Sweet! I'm not that far yet. Only a small amount of time each day to be able to listen.

Looking at my calendar and realizing that I have 20 days before Solstice, I'm so far behind it just isn't funny. Ridiculous!

Aren't they wonderful? I have never seen these for sale, but saw the pic and thought they looked quite Elvish. I could see these in Legolas' Itilien realm, couldn't you? Hugs to Pip :-)

You seem terribly organised to me! I bought my first Christmas presents today - and only because the Christmas market was on up on the green. I am waaaaaaaaaaay behind with everything.
Not really, I'm in a bit of a blue funk today - just looking at everything I still have to do and the small amount of time that I have in which to do it. It's like putting a square peg into a round hole...

- Erulisse (one L)
I recognise the blue funk. It kept me awake last night and my friends are all getting too; I think it must be universal right now. Strength to you! We'll all get through this. One way or another...
You're ahead of me right now. What's crazy is that I really don't care if the cards are timely, but it would be nice to have them at least arrive in the correct year - LOL.
