Aye yi yi, you need to get some sleep girlfriend.  2 hours does not begin to cut it. How can you even function with that?  I could not. When I was young I could go 24 hours without sleep but not any more. Of course I was a lot busier in those days.
What did you do to your cards that you had to undo all that?  OMGoodness!!  I have advice for you.  Buy cards and send then out and save these cards for next year and you have a huge headstart for yourself.  Aren't I smart?  Or is that smart ass?  Probably the latter.
I have a busy start to this week.  It was INR Monday, Fauska's Tuesday and
Eye Dr and the ladies coming Wed.  OMG, plus I am working on my bedroom.  Then Nan calls and wants to do Mon instead. So now, Fauska's and INR on Mon and Tuesday is open for me to clean.  But all evening my bad eye has been itching and burning and I have repeatedly put dry eye drops in. Then my nose had gotten all stuffed up and my eyes are blurred and I have a headache. My guess is a sinus cold or infection.  If it continues I will not go to Fauska's tomorrow which means they will go ahead and watch without me. Yet, if Nan can not come, then we do not do it.  Can none of them see how unfair that is?  But Nan thinks my illnesses are due to social anxiery and therefore do not count and they go along with her. So thatis all I will say about that.
The computer is working well.  Yesterday I could not get my email to download into my incredimail but today I did.  But it is blank IM and none of
the folders I had are there. He did not find any of that and that was what I wanted the most. It has all my receipts in it.  The things he brought back are things I deleted because I had put them on flash drives.  I wrote down exactly what I was looking for and when he told me he found my files I was so happy, but now I am truly bummed.  How I forgot to save those files, I do not know, but it is a devastating blow.
Going to share a couple pictures then head off to sleep.

Good Morning.

Hard to believe that November is already slipping away.  The world is turning too fast.   

We have slipped into colder weather.  The forecast for the next week is in the 30s and 40s with the possibility of a little snow on Friday.  I think Winter has finally arrived.   I can't complain.  We have been in the 80s through much of the Fall.

Yesterday I spent much of the day trying to salvage the mess that I made with the cards.   Half the cards had to be ripped apart and done over, but I think I should be able to finish putting things back together today.   What an idiot am I.   

You and Mike are on the same wave length.  He tells me (more than once) that I should just send those that are 'done' and visit the Hallmark store for the rest.   Of course that's the sensible approach, but he should know me better than that.   I was born under the sign of the crab, and that doesn't mean that I'm "Crabby" (though I am), but that I am nothing in not tenatious!  Ha.   I'm told if a Crab grabs your toe with one of his claws and you cut the claw off, he will simply grow another and grab your toe again.   That's me.  Ha.   I can't stop until I've finished whatever it is.   It is ok to laugh at me about that peculiar compulsion.  I laugh at myself ~ and then I get back to it.  ;-)

I couldn't even believe what I had done with the cards.  I thought I had been so careful, but I stamped them in a way that they couldn't even be salvaged without tearing them up and saving some parts while getting rid of others completely.  (Again, smacking myself upside the head)
  

I need to finish all the things I'm doing in the "Craft Room" and have everything put away before Shauna comes on Friday so  she can clean the room before we put the tree up.  

Thank goodness I got a good night's sleep last night!  I did take a benedryl but I'm not sure I even needed too.     This screwed up sleep business is hard on me, and I wish it would stop!

I'm sure Nan must be a wonderful and delightful person, but I have to tell you . . . I don't like her!   She seems like a "My way or the Highway" type, and without empathy.   I hope you can go and watch some episodes of Reign.    I would personally like to have her left out of the fun with no good reason, and have the opportunity to see how she likes it.   I'm not sure empathy can always be taught.   Some will "get it" if given the opportunity to see things through another's eyes, and others will never get it.  I have my suspicions about her, but I would like to hear that she has been given the "opportunity" a dozen times of so, in the hopes she might have an "aHa moment".   Hey, you already knew I'm not nice ~~~ I'm 'Deplorable'!  Worse, I'm proud of it! Ha!

I'm so glad your computer is fixed and running well, but oh how I 'feel your pain' at losing your Incredimail files.    I lose something every time I switch to a new PC and it is SO upsetting.  I've given up entirely on using PSP because of all of the files and filters I've lost and can't restore no matter how hard I try.  I don't even try anymore, but i really did miss doing more in PSP than just adding a name to a snag for a long time.   Now, it's ok.  It's just the way things are.   Now my current frustration is with all the things I've saved in my emails that have poofed.  Ah well.  It is what it is (or some other irritating cliche').  

Sailer is such a beauty.   I don't know why, but it still catches me surprised when I see such a little one already proficient with technology.   I mean, I KNOW, but . . .   lol   The boys are adorable.    Finn has lost his curls?   (I'm never going to remember Lyric's name ~ ha)  Precious baby.

Have a happy day!    You know what I'll be doing (along with some laundry and getting Shogun's claws cut.  They are gash hooks!).

I know what you mean about Nov. flying by. I had a dream that I just woke up and Christmas was over with and I somehow missed it all. That is the way I feel about it. We prepare for over a month and then in one day it is all over with. That makes me ti sad.

I did not go today and I texted Louann and Nan together and I explained about my eye and said, please lets reschedule this.  I do not want to miss that many episodes, so Nan texted back ok.  When I texted Louann late afternoon, they had not gotten together and Nan said we would try for next week. I also rescheduled my INR for Wed.  So that freed up today and tomorrow. I did not get much done today. I was very tired.  My eye was not too bad all day but this evening it was horrid again. Right now it is good. Keep my eye in your prayers that it is nothing more than something that got into my eye or a little scratch and not an infection starting. If it came to my having to see the doctor often I would be damned money wise. Already this is the 2nd visit this month which makes my bill $90. this month and I am still paying on 2 others that I wanted to pay off.

Once again I will not be able to get the skin and new page done on time. Tomorrow I have to continue in my room, mop the floors in the kitchen and dining room, vacuum and dust. On Wed it is eye doctor at 11:15, INR at 3:45 and the ladies at 5:30.  I will be shot.  I will be lucky to stay awake while Carole and Gloria are here. Crossing fingers that they leave around 10.  They usually do leave earlier in the winter months.

I think my shopping is all done other than some gift cards.  Just need to sort it all out to make sure...wait, no I am not. I still have Suz to do. My pick in the exchange and I usually get her something for all she does so will spend extra on her.  Diane and I are going to stop exchanging. We started that when she, mom and I did a little exchange before everyone else came since we were the single ones. But now she never gets here before all the rest so it just does not pay. That means I get 2 presents for Christmas.  One from my mom and one from my exchange person.  Oh, and Carole and Gloria whenever we get together.  I know it is better to give than to receive, and I do give...far more than I should and it is nice to get a gift or two.  We gave it up with out friends group.  Everyone was fine with that. I am doing L&B's grandkids because I love to. When my mom is gone, I will no longer be able to. So I will enjoy it while I can.

I give you a hell of a lot of credit for keeping at it on your cards.  I am so sorry that everything went so horribly wrong.  I am glad you are able to repair them.  I am sure all will be thrilled to get one of your home made masterpieces.  I never did get my thank you's out for my birthday.  I am sadly going to do a general letter and include it in the Christmas Cards.  I will have to get more than I got last year. Hope they have not gone up too much in cost.

Well, that's about it for me.  Chat with you tomorrow and I am sure I will be zombied out on Wed and not make it here.
Hugs,

Good Morning 

Hallelujah ~ the cards are Done!  They should have been done two days ago, and they should all look the same instead of 25 being white with red and 20 being red with white, but they are DONE!   I had thought to stamp the envelopes, but I think I will forego that and stick a fork in them.  ;-)

Today I would like to make some gift tags for the little ones, maybe, but it won't be a big deal if I don't get those done.  I am sending two books for Vince's 3rd birthday in the same box with 2 books for his Christmas present.  I am going to use that Spiderman card I made earlier, tweaked a bit for one of his birthday cards, and I have a "store bought" card for the other one.     I'm having Lily's personalized Lenox Christmas ornament sent directly to her.   For jack and Lucy, I am sending two Christmas books each ~ maybe with hand made gift tags.  Maybe not.   I also have some laundry to fold today.  Should keep me busy.

Watching the terrible fires in Tennessee and the Brazillian Soccer team's plane crash, and counting my blessings.  

  The current temperature here is 29 degrees, heading for a "high" of 41.  Brrrr.

We do really work so hard to prepare for Christmas ~ decorating, baking, parties, shopping, wrapping, writing cards and then POOF!  It's over and we have to un-decorate and put everything away and . . .   It's easy to see why we do it when we are young, and when we have little ones around, but why am I doing it?  lol   When you think about it, it's a whole lot of unnecessary stress and work ~~~~ and yet, we do love it, don't we?  Perhaps we are insane.  ;-)

I'm sorry your eye is bothering you so much and that you had to miss getting together with your friends, but I'm glad you spoke up and they didn't go ahead without you!  I will say a prayer or six for your eye, that it's just a temporary irritation, and nothing serious.   Do you have some good drops you can use on it?

The very least of your worries should be a new December skin!   I will anticipate it whenever you put it up, and in the meantime we can continue to think Fall for a while.  PLEASE don't stress yourself over this.  I'm just grateful that you do this for us!

Your Wednesday sounds exhausting to me!  I hope you can still enjoy the ladies!

Mike and I spoil each other at Christmas and on birthdays, but if either of us was gone, the other would get very little for either day.  Of course we don't 'need' anything and have a hard time coming up with something to suggest that the other one get for us, but somehow presents  are still an integral part of Christmas and birthdays.  I guess that's silly at our ages and with how little we need or want, but it's true nonetheless that if we didn't get a gift or two, we'd feel pretty sad.  We have lost so many, actually all of our older family members, and we miss the fun we used to have shopping for them.   

I don't enjoy getting things for the "next generation" as much as I used to for their parents ~ or grandparents ~ because i'm not around them to see what they have or want or if they actually like what I do.  I still want to do it, but it just isn't as much fun when you aren't physically close.

Try not to overdo it too badly ~~ though I know that of course you will.  lol
