Busy and missing a week

No one has ever tagged me with that "8 random weird things about me" meme that's always going around. But if they did I would have to put down that I have a very bizarre sense of time. Also, that I can totally and firmly believe two completely opposite things at the same time. For example- last Sunday I knew that the date was November 25th. I was going to a cardmaking party and it was on the invitation. We were reading the newspaper that morning and I remarked to my husband "It's exactly one month until Christmas". So I knew the date. I also know that November has 30 days. As my mother used to say- Thirty days hath September, April, June and November.......
Another thing I knew, as well as I know my own name, I knew that I had one more weekend before the month of December. I'm telling you people, I would have bet money on it. Until someone at the party (who shall remain nameless but here's a link to her blog) told me that the following weekend was December. I tried to tell her as gently as possible that she was quite wrong. Then the others at the party started ganging up on me and taking her side and before you knew it "poof" one week of my life just disappeared! Now I need this week -I was going to organize myself. I was going to buy and wrap all my presents. I have a half decorated tree in my living room. My Christmas village is only half set up. We just watched a documentary on extreme weather and my little village kind of looks like it could be a homeschool diorama- "Christmas Village....After the tornado". But the thing I am most behind on is making 75 handmade ornaments for a Christmas Party favor. The party is always on the first Sunday in December. Which,as it turns out, is in fact this upcoming weekend and not the week after that. So that's what I've been doing the last couple of days. I'm making little wreaths out of puzzle pieces. I 'm pretty happy with how they're turning out. The top photo shows a few of the finished wreaths and stacks of the wreaths that are still waiting for bows, poms poms and hangers. The photo under that is of piles of candy for the treat bags. Whoever makes the ornament also brings 75 little bags of candy, one for each child at the party. It takes longer than you'd think to put these little bags together. If only I had one more week....

Losing a week -- I hate when that happens!
