OMG, is it almost tomorrow?

I decided to blog first, maybe this way I can get it published before noon time. It seems it takes me 3 hours every morning to do my Weight Watcher stuff, emails and blogging. That is a long time. I think I need to improve my skills a little, huh?

Yesterday I made a couple Christmas gifts for two ladies from the NASCAR Weight Watcher message board... they were not on my list exactly but when I finished the project they both came to mind so I am sending it to them.

The first is the dammit doll... initially I made this with Adam's mom Angie in mind, since she is the one who taught Adam to say that word by osmosis, but when I finished it I realized it looked more like a voodoo doll... I am so not into voodoo but there is a girl named Cuda who always kids she has one, I know she doesn't, but I am going to send her this doll with a container of straight pins and the colored cut out numbers of most, if not all, of the NASCAR drivers. LOL. So she can pin a number on the doll anytime one of them crash out Dale Jr, (her favorite driver) hahahahaha

I sewed his legs on backwards, so the seam from the rounds is on the front instead of the back, and all I could say to that when I was done was "dammit!" And hit the doll against the wall. When you check out the link for the doll you'll see what I mean by that.

Next I made a couple acorns. I will make a few more with perhaps a different face on them. Another NASCAR Weight Watchers friend, Squirrel, has been throwing acorns all week... having some bad days, so hopefully these little nuts will help keep her from going nuts and change a bad day into a good one.

Now that's what I was doing yesterday... I should have been finishing up what I am giving my sister at her bridal shower Saturday, OMG is that tomorrow??? I have balls made up but no hats for them yet or smiley faces sewn on. Plus I have a dishcloth to make her as well, one of my own designs, I made one up quickly for DH's brothers wedding but I never wrote up the pattern, so now I have to do that and re-create it.

Of course somewhere in between I need to pay bills, fold laundry, take a shower, plan dinner, call the DR, call my mom, put away the clean dishes, get my badges on POGO, read some blogs, visit Ravelry and feed the metal monster...
(that's the wood stove of course)

Yikes... I may not get that all done before Thanksgiving...
Where's that dammit doll????

That doll is cetaintly different! lol You've been busy haven't you?

So have I, but not crocheting. I'm so tired tonight that I just want to go to sleep!

I went to my weigh-in this morning and I'm down 1.6! Then we went to the Civic Theater for more costumes for the parade. When that was finished, dd wanted to put in some job applications since she no longer has a job! Around 2:30 we realized that we hadn't eaten, so we went to Burger King with our coupon. Then off to do more job hunting. I finally got home around 4 I think. Just as I was starting to fall asleep in the chair, dh mentioned dinner! Now we're waiting for the truck race to start. I'll probably fall asleep.

Enjoy the party tomorrow.
