That's what my niece, Kayla said after Christmas was over the year she was 18 months at Christmas time. (Ho Ho being her name for Santa). I managed to put the decorations away today. It always makes me a little sad to see them all packed up and the house back to my boring old stuff. I still feel like I have a thousand things to do before I can leave my house for a week unattended. Clean out the fridge a bit, clean the cat's boxes, clear up the clutter that has accumulated EVERYWHERE! But I had to sit down and take a short break after hauling the Christmas tree down to the basement and all the decorations and stowing them in the storage space.
I went to crafts direct yesterday and picked up yarn for a project that I hope won't take a really long time. My mom made this and photocopied the pattern for me. She said it was pretty easy and went together pretty quick. I am getting away from my "33 or so projects", but did I really think I would keep on track for that long without finding a diversion? I bought a pale lavender yarn. I think I will put this one away for safe keeping when it is done. :) It seems I rarely ever keep what I make.
I did finish the crochet afghan that I started two years ago. I ran out of yarn and decided it was big enough and didn't want to put more money into it. Be forewarned, if you make a q hook afghan with really bulky yarn, be prepared to buy a lot of yarn! This afghan is only a little larger than lap size, but it took about 8 skeins of yarn! It is really nice and soft, though. When I get time, probably after J's surgery, I will have a picture bonanza again!
