Half Full

This weekend was BUSY!  I was just talking to my co-worker about I didn't stop until Sunday night at 11 pm.  Whew.  I'm thankful for keeping myself busy.  It's helping me heal to some extent.  It was one of those weekends that makes me feel optimistic again.  I need to hold on to that feeling...especially today.
 
Saturday morning consisted of spending a few hours at my friend's fabric shop making crafts.  I love when she hosts these events and we can all go and make things.  This time it was a burlap stocking and a hanging card holder.  I went with red and white chevron.  (not a big surprise there). 
I love spending time with these lovely ladies.  I got to spend some QT with Sabrina and Eliza.  We walked around downtown and had lunch.  It was great and the weather was good.
I worked the rest of Saturday and came home and did a million things to get ready for Sunday.  I was exhausted by 10 pm.  I miss the days of going out...I need to have a fun night out on the town soon. Forget this grounding myself stuff.  I'm fantastic and I need to be out and about.  No more avoiding people.  So there.

Sunday morning was busy.  I got up early so I could finish a project, clean the storage room, and get out all the things I need for the week.  I've got a lot going on the next few weeks and I needed some time to organize.  To be honest I could have spent the whole day in my sweats doing that BUT I had lots of plans for the day. 

Some friends hosted a Holiday Open House so I went over there.  It was so lovely.  They had their craft creations out for purchase.  I picked up some cute stuff from my talented, crafty friends. 
After I left there I headed over to Isabel's house to watch the Jets-Bills game. 
I got to spend some time with little Mr. Tyler.  And Isabel asked if I'd be one of his godmothers.  I felt honored to be asked.  In Finland, it's traditional to have two sets of godparents.  So cute.  I don't have any experience with godparents so I'm not really sure what it means but it's definitely an honor.  I'll spoil him extra now.  :)
After the excitement of seeing little man, I headed to work at BBW to do our big meeting before Black Friday.  We did a cookie exchange after the meeting so that was nice.  For the record I brought the cookies to work today so I would not have any temptation to eat them at home.  I've got two more cookie exchanges to get through next month so I can't be having any temptation.  I've got to get to my 20 lb mark folks!

After that I had an appointment with a friend to take my holiday card photo.  I think it's going to turn out pretty well...Here's a sneak preview...weird I know, but it'll make sense later, I promise. 
 
After I got home and cleaned up from all these activities I was exhausted.  And for the first time in a long time, I saw the glass of water on my nightstand before I fell asleep and I thought to myself...wow, it's half full.
 
Progress.

As busy as they are, I love weekends like these. It makes me feel really good. Congratulations on the honor of godmother. I'm not really familiar myself, but I know it's a huge deal.
