So Jessica at Housewifespice is hosting this snazzy Jesse Tree ornament swap. And I was all "Sure! This seems fun! I like fun things! Let's do it and it'll be fun!". But do you know what I forgot? That I am not creative or artistic or imaginative or, most of the time, even actually interested in having real fun. I just like the idea of fun. Or the things that I find fun are not fun in the "enjoyable" sense of the word. Like, I think spreadsheets are "fun". And organizing the towel shelves. And color-coding my closet- ideally with actual codes being involved.
Did you just die a little inside? I'm so sorry.
Anyway, I'm sitting there yesterday, minding the puke, and suddenly some of the other females
Shut the front door, females. You're finished? We hadn't even started! We hadn't even decided what we were making. I mean, there were, like, 9 days left before the deadline. And do you know what else I like besides spreadsheets and properly folded linens (including sheets. See what I did there?)? The last minute. The last minute and I are BFF, yo.
But then...thenthenthen...I remembered that we had just gotten one of these, which my darling husband had driven to work, leaving me with freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee access to my very own motorized vehicle (I'm a big girl now!). So I hounded folks on the fb page, got a zillion awesome ideas, settled on the easiest one (what can I say?) and hauled my brood to the tantalizing aisles of Hobby Lobby so we could do this thang and maybe NOT wait until the last minute and work and work and work and work and..., well, so far we have this:
Oi, we are straight ghetto. But we will FINISHED ghetto folk, and that's what really matters, yes? Please say yes.
Lots of work still to do and apparently (I swear we have tons of time. Why are we doing this already?) not a lot of time do it in, so I'll stop blabbing.
p.s. Do you know how hard it is to find a simple list of symbols for Mary? Super hard. Which is why social media is better than google. Full stop.
