Friday night: The Rubbermaid Explosion
Saturday night: Whew!
We had a deadline: Sunday lunch at our house for our CARE group- AACK!- otherwise it's possible I may never have been motivated enough to get it all out this year since we will be on the road for the holiday. This is one of the fastest Christmas box turn-arounds we've ever had!
Notice the choir uniforms slung over the back of the couch in the top photo. They were the source of much wailing and gnashing of teeth in our household on Thursday night as we searched in desperation for two sets of red cummerbunds and bow ties. I was most dismayed with the prospect of being the only choir mom to report to the Lady-In-Charge at the performance on Saturday morning, "My kids have lost their uniforms!" I was even more dismayed with the prospect of having to purchase two more sets of cummerbunds and bow ties, but after a grueling two-hour house turnover, they were discovered at the bottom of a shopping bag in the laundry room. Like the Biblical woman who found the lost coin, there was much rejoicing, along with a finder's celebration at Sonic. And now, the house is clean and semi-decorated- a happy benefit of hosting CARE group. I am feeling much more merry!
