Round and round

I should be in bed, but instead, I'm at the computer piddling around.

My mind is going about a hundred miles a minute. There is absolutely nothing I can do to slow it down. For whatever reason, I always seem to decide to choose the time when I lie in bed at night to start making my "mental lists".

I hate when I do that. Because once it starts, there is no stopping it.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I am in the middle of packing up one house and unpacking another....or that next weekend is Thanksgiving and my baby is going to be TEN MONTHS OLD!! Holy Mickey Mouse people...she is T-W-O stinking months away from being an official "toddler " Which brings me to another panic attack, her First Birthday....that I have yet to even purchase one item OR research anything!! UGHHH. Does someone please want to be my party planner and do everything for me???????

Oh yeah, and then there's the Christmas cards. Even more pressure is on there because I'm getting them for FREE and they're going to be THE BOMB so, duh, now I have to think of coordinating outfit combos...and where to take the picture...and when find the time to take the picture!!! ((catching breath))

Dear Jesus, I need two of me, maybe even three.

Annnnnd the Christmas presents. Every.stinking.year I say that next year I'm going to be smart and start getting things early. Yeah right. I thought present shopping was hard before having a child, this year should be interesting.

Even though this is one crazy/busy/hectic time, I am so thankful for it. God has blessed me with an amazing husband, a beautiful, perfect baby girl, and wonderful family and friends. If I didn't have them, there would be no reason for awesome cards and birthday parties. Sometimes it's just too easy to get wrapped up in ^all the above^ and forget about what's truely important.

::deeeeeep breath:: It will get done. Everything that needs to get done will get done. Sometimes it just feels good to get it all out on paper, er, blog.

.....though I wouldn't turn down an offer to plan P's awesome party ;)

I had a lot of fun planning Collin's birthday party. If you seriously want some help, let me know. It'll be fun! I've made the invitations for several parties and showers recently. I love planning stuff like that :)
