Proof Postive that I am an IDIOT !!!

Well if you read my post from yesterday, you know that I have been overwhelmed with WAY too much to get done before Thanksgiving.  Last night, not too long after I wrote my post, I was frantically trying to get everything done and in the midst of the insurmountable task the hubs reminded me that I also volunteered to write out 15 thank you notes for him (he has yucky hand writing) for people who had participated in his black Friday sale from last year and invite them to the one this year...So, in the midst of all the other things I was trying to finish, I sat down to write them out. He had a memo from home office with the verbage they wanted used. Well imagine my suprise when I read that they needed them sent by Monday Nov. 14 with a follow up call no later than Monday the 21st. OK, yes, idiot Margie actually used up valuable energy by running downstairs to the hubs man cave (he was watching the Steeler game of course) and said "Um, honey, why on earth would you send these out and then call them AFTER Thanksgiving to remind them...that's just dumb...I hate your stupid company, they make you do the dumbest things and never have their info right ! Shouldnt you have mailed these LAST week and called tomorrow since Thursday is Thanksgiving ?" Well of course my husband is smiling now...smirking perhaps, and said "Babe, you do know Thanksgiving is NEXT week right ? You know ...its the last Thursday in November...been that way your entire life " He was now chuckling and I was getting really irritated. I KNOW he told me Thanksgiving was this week and hello....I have been running around, baking cookies, painting porches, refinishing my buffet, etc saying things like "Oh my gosh, I am running out of time and I need to get all this stuff done by Thursday" and he never said a word...NOT ONE WORD!!!  I mean, its not like I have random Thursday deadlines to meet for pete's sake ! Well to be fair, I couldnt stay irritated long ... he hugged me and with a handsome smile said I was adorable and that I  "just needed to not worry about getting everything done, that the house looked fine and no one would notice dust bunnies when they were licking the gravy off their plates to get the very last little bit of a delicious turkey dinner followed by a great piece of pie ! Feed people and no one cares what the house looks like honey"....So, the moral of this story ?  Marry a great man and BUY a calendar !  Hahahaha. I figured I didnt really need one since the kids were all gone and, lets face it, the hubs works so much that I dont really have much of a social life. Its pretty much church, groceries, thrift store, repeat and who needs a calendar for that right ? Well apparently I do since I cant get my national holidays straight !!!
Well, its a yucky, rainy day here (ugh...that translates to achey, achey joints) but I do want to report I finally got some zzzz's last night...SIX HOURS all at once ! HOORAY ! Thanks to all of you who have prayed for me...it was greatly appreciated ! So between getting sleep and now miraculously having an additional week to get things done, I am off to prioritize and tick things off my list one by one. I got up early this morning and mailed some cookies out to one soldier. Last night I listed my new ruglets (a day early) and even some new wool for sale. Right now I am working on some absolutely awesome red wool bundles and hope to have those up this afternoon...they are really great and I had so much fun perfecting my favorite red dye recipe which I may share in my dyeing tuorial. Its perfect for prim crafts...rich and dark...great for houses, barns, samplers and santa's.

Well friends, off I go. Many thanks and hugs to you all.
Grace to you,
Margie

  12. You are always one with a crazy story that has me rolling on the floor. I have seen you that stressed and irate, I seen the Hubs knowing grin and how many times have I heard you call each other "Adorable." I would be happy to thrift and coupon with you every week! Wish there were not so many miles between us.
    I Love You! Heidi

  13. With that extra week do not follow my moto "if it weren't for the last minute, I wouldn't get anything done". Congrats on the extra week, use it wisely...hopefully it'll give you some down time...wait crafter, downtime, I don't think so, that's not in our vocabulary! Kendra

  16. Well bless your crazy heart. (You are blonde, aren't you?? KIDDING!!) Can't say I've never done that - but, unfortunately, it was the other way around - thinking I had an extra week till I was informed otherwise. Talk about panic attack. But I'd find a good payback for that sweet hubby of yours - handsome and sweet or not...that's not playing fair....And no worries - I don't live in my grandma's basement, and I'm not a cross-dresser. ;o) Have a great night - hope you get another 6 hours of blissful zzzz's....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  17. What a gift! How often do you gain a week in time!?! Thank you for sharing this - it made me feel less crazy!
    Please don't be stressing about our swap! I probably won't be getting my end in the mail until closer to the end of the week.
    Hope the rest of the week goes great for you!

  19. Sounds like my life! You sure we aren't related? LOL! I am ALWAYS getting in over my head! Time is something that you can't purchase! I am just learning to do what I can and keep my big trap shut!
    Have a good week!
    Hugs,

  21. I am so laughing right now. Not at you, but at myself because I did the same thing, only I lost 5 days instead of gaining a week!
