    You know, I thought I was getting ahead.....

    I was going to start on some this weekend, but I now have a higher priority project, friends of mine's youngest has been diagnosed with chiari malformation and their insurance isn't helping them much. (involves some seriously heavyweight consults so far, mayo clinic and next the chiari institute).

    SO I'm going to be making some items for a benefit auction coming up in just 2 weeks.

    Ya know, if you'd been working on gifts instead of crowing about what day of the month it is for the past 8 months, maybe you'd be all done with them by now.

    Thanks for the reminder, though. Sounds like I still have 2 1/2 months to go before I have to get real busy.

    Check the date on the first post in the thread. Randy just decided to resurrect it to make us all feel good about ourselves.

    LOML reminded me yesterday that it was only 45 days until Christmas. What a pal, huh?

    Really, Stu? But usually you're so ahead of the game.

    My wife and I finished our main Christmas shopping on the weekend. Ho-Ho-Ho.
