The count down has begun...

And I'm not ready. Big surprise! The Master Procrastinator is here! I supposed maybe it's because I work so well under pressure... (not!). I'll be stressed tomorrow when I try to get more done in a day than I can possibly do... but always remembering that it is self-induced. Oh well... I wouldn't know how to be any other way, as much as I might like to try. In fact, after Thanksgiving company has left, that is one of my major goals. Get organized. You see, I'm organized in my head, it's just the follow-through that suffers immensely. My sister was born organized (and 5 sizes smaller, but we won't go there) and I love to go to her home to be inspired. Our tastes vary, but I glean the sense of order and comfort. I doubt she spends days looking for instructions she knows she found in some book or magazine or publication as to taking care/laundering/pressing/storing vintage and antique linens. She would have it in a file someplace, and go put her hands right on it should someone need it. Well, you get the idea.

Charlie and Colleen and baby are arriving sometime around Noon on Wednesday this week. Charles is supposed to be home around the same time. Since I have to work Wednesday evening, I'm planning on having a nice meal together for lunch, and perhaps some navy bean soup in the crock pot for their dinner whenever they get hungry. I'll be posting pics and info for "foodie" stuff on my other blogspot page... "Come join our table". As I've shared before, things have slowed down this year as far as the home entertaining goes, and I have not had much opportunity to post. However, this year has been a difficult year for us.

I received this past Friday the baby's Graco Pack-n-Play. It's a play-pen, crib, bassinet, changing station all in one. It's heavenly. And it's a bit larger than I had anticipated. I'll go take a picture of it to post here. Right now, I need to go get ready for work. I'll be back later. OK, I'm back, it's late, I'm tired, and I'll take the pic tomorrow.
