Progress! and Frustration

Went to Mama’s yesterday. Wrapped presents and got the round of white finished on the blanket. Just need to edge it in the variegated now. Brought the white cone home, and made midwife hats out of the remainder. And checked off 7 balls from stash :)

Today is DS#2’s 6th birthday. His cake is made and we are having Mama, Grandmother, some friends and Daddy stop by all at various times. Then tonight, there is rehearsal. It’s shaping up to be a busy day.

And I really need to go to Wal-Mart to get groceries. No time. What kind of person is too busy to go to Wal-Mart?

I also need to go through the box of goodies in my room, and see what presents are in it. I’ll lock myself in my room directly and do that. Then I can finalize my “need” list.

And I want to finish Dh’s sweater today. I am on the second sleeve, so that should be do-able as long as it stays cool enough in here to work on it. He was delighted last night to find out that it’s *not* for Christmas, and that he can have it as soon as I am finished with it.

All this list of “need/want to do” has led to me feeling very pressured this morning. And I’ve been a bit snappish. Why does everyone say “but” when I ask them to do something? My house was trashed when I got home last night, in spite of the good cleaning we gave it Friday, so I am trying to get the kids to pick it up. It is, after all, not my mess, and I have heard a constant litany of but, but, but, BUT! I think I even threatened to run away from home this morning.

So how’s your day shaping up?
