What are you doing with your extra hour?

Tonight we set our clocks back an hour as we leave daylight savings time. I'll be sewing or preparing to sew or searching for fabric.

Late spring Joe was asked to be Santa for the kids Christmas party. I bought the pattern for the suit - Joe wanted his very own, really nice one. After summer vacation, Joe startede to beard and it was looking really good when it happened.

Joe found out that the guy who played the part last year really enjoyed it and was looking forward to a repeat performance. I didn't got the fabric yet - it wasn't in the shoppes - so not much lost, just some expectations.

Well Tuesday we found out the first fellow doesn't want to do it anymore!!!! So now Joe has no time to grow a real beard, I'm scrambling to find 7 metres of nice plush red fabric and some white fur trim. And the real kicker...this is how it will all come down...

November 23 after Joe is done work, we drive 4 hours to Calgary for Joey's 6th birthday. We missed it last year because of a snow storm and closed highways.
November 24 after we do birthday breakfast etc, we leave Calgary for home to get dolled up for the office Christmas party...we are the designated driver(s). We drive our friends home, go to sleep.
November 25 - Grey Cup Day - we go and play Santa at the company kid's party. We do home and collapse!

Excuse me...I think I'll go, claim my extra hour now and just lay down....I have a headache starting!!!!

Sounds like you have been VERY busy and will be VERY busy for some time! I really like the new chairs! The Serenity Prayer is also one of my favorites! Have fun!

Oh dear Berta, looks as though you've got your work cut out for you...arrgh!!! I'm sure you will be able to look back and know it was all worth it when it's's just getting to the 'over' part that's going to be the problem!

Thanks for dropping by and leaving your sweet comment. I'm a lot better now thank you - it was my first day back at work today and it wasn't too bad at all. Take care!
