11/26/07

Less than a month left until Christmas. Luckily most of my shopping is done, all of my decorating is done. I have one more planned entertaining event to go. But travel is a big deal between now and Christmas.

Tomorrow my applique group is meeting at my house. Have to have the kitchen table clear for stitching (light is better there than the dining room table), then the dining room table clear for lunch.

Wednesday I leave for Delaware to go to Mare's Bears for Applique by the Bay. I think this is the 5th year I have been. It is a ball. The motel where we stay is closed, so the appliquers are the only ones there. We hang around at night in our jammies and knit and stitch. Classes all day. It is just about a city block from downtown Lewes and they have a great holiday street party the Thursday night. It will be loads of fun. I get back on Sunday.

Next Sunday I leave for NYC. Seeing the Rockettes and hopefully Hairspray (depends on the strike), but if we don't get to go to the show, that is another $100 I can use to shop!!! Get back Wednesday at midnight.

Nephews have their first band concert, one plays sax, the other drums. I use "play" loosely. They are taking it in school, just started this year. This is Thursday night.

Friday morning we leave to go to DC. We get to see the White House decorated for Christmas. I am so excited about this. It is really a once in a lifetime thing. We plan to spend the weekend in DC and maybe the aquarium in Baltimore. Then back home.

After that, I get to stay home, maybe, until Christmas!!!

Karen, thanks for your comments. Glad to know I am not the only one that is rebelling against the decorating thing. My house does look nice now. I have gotten over the overworked funk from having to put it all up. You didn't leave your blog address, so I can't check your's out.

Well off to pack and get ready for guest. I'll report on my trips later. I am trying to make these trips computer-less. This will be a challenge. I have a major e-mail addiction. Let's see how I do after five days without!!!

Chat later
Susan

Wow, I'm impressed by your progress! I haven't started decorating or shopping. But I'm halfway done with the Christmas Knitting!
