I'm not doing a Christmas show this year at the theatre, I might not even be doing a winter show so I should have all sorts of evening and weekend time to get stuff done. Stuff that I always want to do, but never do. Things that I loose the motivation for every year.
Now that my sister lives close I've already asked her to help with the Christmas decorating. I will reciprocate of course and help at her house too, it's just that on my own I will only get as far as bringing the bin down from the attic and getting the tree assembled (yes it's fake - the best $5 I spent ever). That's it. Maybe I'll put the lights up because the lights are my favorite part. But now three years in a row I've been stunted in my ability to get the house in a festive mood.
1. Decorate the trees and house for Christmas (I also have two aluminum trees).
2. Make cookies & rum balls & those green marshmallow corn flake ones with the red hot candies.
3. Paint the Living Room. At least one room, maybe the dining room too.
4. Frame and hang art on walls.
5. Eat at the table. (we've actually done this 3 times this week already)
6. sew something to wear. I have so many plans, so many ideas, so much fabric...
There are so many other thing I want to do, but then my lists start being a little unrealistic and unattainable. Under promise and over deliver. If I get more done I'll be so excited! And if I don't manage to get anything done, I know that's just how my life is most days.
