I feel like a Huge Flaming Christmas Poinsettia Ball is heading straight for me!! and I can't get out of the way...
This is a difficult time of year for me with the gardening season winding down, but still work to be done AND the pressure of decorating TWO massive clients homes for the holidays (one of which has to be done by this Wednesday)...not to mention trying to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family in there! I don't know how I could do it all without my wonderful, supportive hubby having dinner made for me every night.........and he will cook most of the Thanksgiving meal as well! This is my 7th year for this grinding routine and it has gotten easier in some respects but the pressure and responsibility I feel is HUGE and the "recovering perfectionist" in me makes it most difficult to focus on anything else right now. I will be creating a Snow Village today (yes, it's Sunday) using 40 + pieces all individually lit with of course, no wires showing, hidden under artistically placed drifts of snow...........
the job is HUGE,
the physical effort is HUGE,
the house is HUGE,
the pressure and stress is HUGE,
the expectations are HUGE,
the responsibility is HUGE........
here's hoping a HUGE Poinsettia Ball isn't heading in YOUR direction.
