Is it really Saturday?

I am some kinda messed up on my days.  The holidays do that to me big time.  What day is it?  What month is it?  What year is it?

As promised, here is a picture of the apron I made for my oldest daughter for Christmas.  I couldnt post it before I gave it to her.

It is made from this pattern.  So CUTE!  And SO EASY!  And now I will share one gift I got from oldest daughter.  It is the one thing I have gotten a picture of! Its been a busy couple of weeks.  I started making pictures of gifts and got distracted VERY quickly! But here is the first of many…

Well, that is it for this morning.  If you could see my kitchen!  It is a disaster.  I have got to get my house clean and straightened or I might just have a breakdown.

And I know my son in law doesnt read my blog (at least I seriously doubt he does) but my daughter does so I want to wish him a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY today.  We will be getting together in the next few days for a meal in honor of his birthday.

Something silly…or is it??

I am up way too early this morning. I ate supper too late and have had indigestion most of the night. I finally just gave in and got up. No matter I have to drive to Houston and back today. It’ll be fine. Right? Anyway, I was surfing around and found this quiz…and I had so many windows open I don’t know the path I took. But I thought it was pretty telling. And hey, how’bout those eyebrows?

I’m a Bette — “I must be strong”

Bettes are direct, self-reliant, self-confident, and protective.

How to Get Along with Me

* * Stand up for yourself… and me.
* * Be confident, strong, and direct.
* * Don’t gossip about me or betray my trust.
* * Be vulnerable and share your feelings. See and acknowledge my tender, vulnerable side.
* * Give me space to be alone.
* * Acknowledge the contributions I make, but don’t flatter me.
* * I often speak in an assertive way. Don’t automatically assume it’s a personal attack.
* * When I scream, curse, and stomp around, try to remember that’s just the way I am.

What I Like About Being a Bette

* * being independent and self-reliant
* * being able to take charge and meet challenges head on
* * being courageous, straightforward, and honest
* * getting all the enjoyment I can out of life
* * supporting, empowering, and protecting those close to me
* * upholding just causes

What’s Hard About Being a Bette

* * overwhelming people with my bluntness; scaring them away when I don’t intend to
* * being restless and impatient with others’ incompetence
* * sticking my neck out for people and receiving no appreciation for it
* * never forgetting injuries or injustices
* * putting too much pressure on myself
* * getting high blood pressure when people don’t obey the rules or when things don’t go right

Bettes as Children Often

* * are independent; have an inner strength and a fighting spirit
* * are sometimes loners
* * seize control so they won’t be controlled
* * figure out others’ weaknesses
* * attack verbally or physically when provoked
* * take charge in the family because they perceive themselves as the strongest, or grow up in difficult or abusive surroundings

Bettes as Parents

* * are often loyal, caring, involved, and devoted
* * are sometimes overprotective
* * can be demanding, controlling, and rigid

Have a great Friday!  We have an appointment this morning with Husband’s surgeon for his follow up and then on to Houston to pick up Hannah.  I can’t wait hear all about her trip and upload some pictures!

Speaking of pictures…here is our tree in all its glory this photo is one my daughter Jessica took right before the present opening began…wow…that’s a lot of stuff!

I will post some more holiday pics in the next few days.  I can’t wait to show you the sewing box, serger, artwork and smell-good, personalized martini glasses and other goodies I got!

Hannah took my camera to Miami with her and I am still not terribly comfortable using Rachel’s Rebel Xti.  I am not even real sure that’s what it is called.

I took our tree down last night.  And swept up about a ton of needles.  It is kinda nice to have our living room back in order.
