Janie was right when. . .

today she told me i was OCD--
its 3:48 a.m.
the house is quiet
except for the occasional
hammering
or
sewing machine
okay
so maybe it sounds like santa's workshop over here
the combination of procrastination and OCD are a sad, sad thing. i remember this AMAZING lady in our ward growing up-- she could sew anything, but always waited until the last minute, and stay up all hours of the night. i even remember that for one of her daughters' wedding she didn't finish her other daughters bridesmaid dress-- it was not sewn but held together with pins. i remember judging and thinking why would someone be like that-- now its ME! if only there were more hours in the day-- or if only i would learn that i am not superwoman, moving the piano by myself is NOT a good idea, and i need to quit having all this ambition-- cause my old stinky body can't keep up with my ambition any more :D when will i learn.
i only pray that it will all be worth it come saturday
come see why this crazy lady has been staying up all hours of the night :D
************update****************
i finally forced myself to plop into bed at 5:30 this morning-- only to be rudely awakened by the sun at seven-- when i woke up-- if was as if i had slept a full eight hours-- what is wrong with me?????

Dude. Sarah. You're a maniac. But I can't judge your sleeping habits. I went to bed at 8:30 last night and woke up for the day at 2am. I should have called you ... what was I thinking? I could have helped you move that piano. lol.

Oh!!! I'm exactly that way. I was up until only 2:30 though. But I'm still not all the way finished. My husband said I was spending too much time on the details that no one would notice, but me. But I DO notice...so I have to fix them :) Anyway, I wish I felt like I slept 8 hours! And that my two year old would sleep another 8 hours..........

WRONG with you?! That's like a superpower!!! If I could live on 0 - 2 hours of sleep a day, I would be SOOOOOO happy! btw, it's killing me that I can't come to your gift boutique. Everything you don't sell is going up on Etsy, right? RIGHT? :)

Sarah said...

everything not sold-- that can be shipped at a reasonable rate will be placed on etsy-- i do have some heavy wood things that would just cost too much to ship-- if i don't sell those-- you know what all my friends are getting for christmas :D

My name is Andrea said...

I dragged my tired butt into bed at 10:30 and when Tyler was ready to go to school at 6:35 am everyone came in and gathered around my bed for family prayers...I wish I could get by on 2 hours...

It was so much fun!! I love things like this because it makes me want to be more creative and make my home more - homey - like yours.

I didn't want to interrupt your WELL DESERVED Sunday afternoon naps, but I believe we were interrupted this morning. When would you like us to be there? I am also thinking of bringing a salad of some sort- one that may match the meal (?)

Let me know!
