Tis the Season


I love that song.

It takes me back to my childhood.

Tradition dictated that the first snowfall of the season was to be commemorated by playing that old record on my mother's antique Victrola...crackles and all.

While the weather outside here is nowhere near "frightful" at a chilly 60 something degrees, we have been having flurries.  Inside.  Flurries of half dressed children we are too tired to get dressed.  We have accumulation of used tissues spilling out of the garbage can that I'm too worn out to take outside.  We have gale force sneezes, and coughing fits of avalanche like proportions. 

Climbing the stairs to tend to the needs of the children is more akin to reaching the summit of Mt. Everest. 

But, I shall soldier through for you!  Swap registration closes in about an hour, and I am determined to have everyone matched up by the time I go to bed tonight. 

IF you signed up for the swap (Paper Wins!), but never got a confirmation email from me, check your junk mail.  If it's not in there, email me at:  symmetryinmotion616@gmail.com and I will hook you up!  There were a few who registered, but did not qualify for one reason or another.  To find out if you were one of them, email me.  I tried to contact everyone, but apparently some email providers are uber rude, and threw my emails in the trash.  The nerve!

IF you have not linked up your participation post yet, you will be placed on the "standby" list.  Once you have linked up, I will pair you with whoever is left without a partner.  If there isn't anybody left, I guess you're out of the game...sorry!  PLEASE GET LINKED!!!  Linky is over HERE if you still need to do it.

Do I sound stressed?  I feel like I sound stressed.  Pardon me if I do.

Girl! Don't let yourself feel stressed. Each lady has the high potential of being a fantastic swapper. I love it when my kids say- You get what you get and you don't throw a fit!
