I may just make this a link up. ;)
I'm caught up in the "betwixt the holidays" boredom. You know... The place in time when Halloween is finished, but you haven't yet been steamrolled by Thanksgiving and Christmas.
It's that weird place where you know you should be doing something but, goshdarnitall, the tasks that lie ahead seem overwhelming and costly, so it's easier to just mope around.
Yes, even us moms of large families find ways to mope around. Only... No one really notices.
Where the heck am I going with this? Darned if I know.
Let's play a game: I'm going to throw out a few ideas I have and you let me know if they're "crazy", "doable", or a "waste of time".
What do you win?
Well, you get to judge me -- which is not something I usually allow. And, if any of my ideas are great, you can steal them!
Ready, set, GO!
1) I'm toying with the idea of buying all matching, inexpensive Christmas stockings to replace our semi-matched set. AND, I want to embroider our names on them. I used to embroider when I was in grade school and jr high, but haven't done it since then. Crazy, doable, or waste of time?
2) Kyle and I are mulling over starting a LifeTeen group in our parish. We have no existing youth/teen group now, so this is only partially selfishly motivated. Crazy, doable, or waste of time?
3) I'm having Thanksgiving in my home for the first time EVER in our marriage! It will be only our family of nine, but I want to "do it up right", so I want to buy new cloth napkins and new glassware to go with my good china. Crazy, doable, or waste of time?
4) Stuffing from scratch? Crazy, doable, or waste of time?
That's all I gots today.
And, don't forget to enter my giveaway for Pope Awesome! It ends this Thursday!
