Mom called and said, "Is Costas taking you out for a nice dinner?"
and I said, "um, what? no. I have a newborn."
On Friday George and I hung out all day as usual. Costas brought home take out for dinner and an ice cream cake from Baskin Robins, but after our evening routine of fussy baby and repeated feedings to get him to sleep, I was too tired to eat it.
Saturday was better though-- Amy came over and we had great hopes to do some holiday crafting. George was even sweet enough to take a long nap so she and I could catch up, but alas, too much talking and eating and no crafting at all.
I did manage to make these ultra simple decorations last week though, just felt and beads, but looking at them on my table reminds me that I AM a creative person, and I will have time to express myself again some day. I'm also taking a few minutes here and there to make Christmas ornaments, if I finish one, I'll blog about it. It all depends on when I can find the time..
