(...which is a phrase I would have sworn I never used, until I heard my grand-daughter imitating me by saying it.)
Look at what came to me today and stunned me out of my lethargy:

So today, I've been hustling! And bustling, too. I've been hall-decking, and am aiming for at least one "Ooooh!" per grandchild. I'm putting out ALL of the "Christmas crap-a-rama" ( which is what my son has been known to call it). The weather has cooperated, and it's very Christmas-y with 4" of snow. The snow laden tree branches look like a second layer of lace through my sitting room window. I've shopped, I've shipped, I've decked-as-if-my-name-was-Martha. Maybe I'll be back in Santa's good graces by the time the day is over... or maybe I'll just be in debt, and tired.
At any rate, happy, happy holidays to all you fellow elves!
