Shelley Munro said...

It's a busy time of the year, isn't it? I'm having trouble getting any writing done at all.

Heather said...

Shelley ~ Very busy. Doesn't help when life gets in the way, lol.

Alice Audrey said...

You already have one? Well darn! I was kind of looking forward to suggesting things to you.

Ella Drake said...

Ah, I'm feeling guilty. Some of those I should have already done. sigh.

Inez Kelley said...

My list laughs at your list. There is never enough time or energy.

And my word verification is Anuses. Oooookay

Stephanie Adkins said...

You're one busy little bee. :) Take a break every now and then. *Hugs* Happy Thursday.

Jennifer Leeland said...

Idonwannatalkaboutit. LOL.
I hope you get EVERYTHING done and still have time to relax and have some eggnog.

Mary Quast said...

Ack! You just reminded me that I need to wrap the gifts for Sunday's family Christmas party. Eep!

Happy TT.

Adelle Laudan said...

You're a busy lady. The fun has just begun here lol At least the shopping is behind me. Happy Holidays!

Elise Logan said...

Oh, good grief. All that cleaning reminds me I have to clean. Bummer.

Heather said...

Alice ~ Yes, I managed to come up with a topic. Rather surprised you're letting that stop you. LOL

Ella ~ Always happy to spread the guilt, hehe...

Inez ~ Never enough time or energy...tell me about it!

Stephanie ~ You know the saying--so much to do, so little time. Hopefully the pace will slacken a bit come January!

Heather said...

Jennifer ~ Since friends and I celebrate Christmas NYE, I won't get much time to relax until January. BUT--at least that means an extra week to finish some pressies. *g*

Mary ~ Get to wrapping, woman! I'm glad i don't have much of that to do this year. lol

Adelle ~ Well, you know what they say about idle hands, lol. I am soo glad I didn't have much shopping to do. Trying to find a Ken doll was difficult enough!

Elise ~ Hehe...sorry! And...I have actually done the vacuuming, finished the cards, made the bed AND have two loads of laundry in right now. So much for a day off! *g*

Miss Angie said...

Ugh, I have a TON to do before Christmas... So that was my Thursday Thirteen too!

Heather said...

Angie ~ Seems like everyone has a foot-long to-do list this time of year, LOL.

A. Catherine Noon said...

~hugs~ You sound like me. Hang in there!

Heather said...

Thanks, Catherine!

Irishcoda said...

To do lists and the Christmas season (shudder)! Hope you get it all done soon!

Pearl said...

yep, sounds like the same season as here.

still haven't remembered and shifted the habit that we need to do laundry more often when it gets cold.

Alice Audrey said...


Seriously, you don't need my help. ;)

Calico Crazy said...

We are finally done with all our Christmas cards including Halfpint's homeschool swap ones. The list of undone is still really long though, good luck with your list. ~ Calico Contemplations

Janice said...

Oh my that is a long list, I did most of my gifting online, and saved on shipping and handling. It was easier too than going to the store.

Happy TT.

Heather said...

Irishcoda ~ Well, I managed to cross six items off the list today. It's mostly baking and crafts left to finish. :-/

Pearl ~ Glad I'm not the only one who grumbles over the increase in laundry come winter!

Alice ~ Aw, flatter me! lol

Calico ~ Thanks, I hope you get everything crossed off your list as well!

Janice ~Thankfully, I didn't have a lot to buy this year. I did order Mom's gift online, as it was cheaper that way. The biggest hassle was The Bug's Ken doll. She's already getting several Barbies from people (not her parents!), so I was asked to get boy dolls.
