SoCS – Christmas is how close?

I’ve had a hard time focusing on the blog lately. The only thing I really want to do is crochet. I started early this year with the Christmas presents, but wouldn’t you know it… it probably wasn’t early enough. Maybe it was because I picked larger patterns for my family. It wasn’t just a quick scarf or those slippers I started and finished one but couldn’t figure out how to do any more. (I really have no idea how I did the first one and the yarn is a bitch to work with, so I finally just threw it all in a bag and it’s still sitting in a corner)

My brother’s wife is going to have a baby some time at the end of December or early January, so about two weeks ago I found the cutest baby blanket pattern that I’ve been working on. My boyfriend says I’m obsessed, and I actually am because I think about it when I’m at work; and when I’m home, I hurry through everything else just so I can sit and crochet the blanket.

I would post a picture of it, but my brother and his wife read my blog, so that’s not going to happen. Sorry guys! You’ll just have to wait!

To say I’m excited about a baby in the family would be an understatement. I’m getting to that point where I want a baby in my life but my kids are too young and in the family, my son is the youngest child. We weren’t surprised that my sister-in-law ended up pregnant. They only just got married a few years (or was it a year) ago, so chances were they were going to have at least one together. More power to you, brother, but I can honestly tell you that I wouldn’t want to start over with more kids of my own.

I can, however, be a spectacular Aunt!

I just realized yesterday what day it was and that Christmas is creeping closer and closer and not only do I not have any presents (other than what I’ve made), I honestly have no real idea what to get anyone this year. The only person who actually told me was Adelle. Is it just boys? Do they just not care? I received an email from Adelle about a month ago telling me what she wanted. I asked Jaxon a few days ago and I got a shrug and, “I don’t know…”, which is his typical answer for just about everything these days.

Not entirely sure where this post is going or even where it’s been, but I suppose that’s all. I’m just really obsessed with crocheting right now and it doesn’t seem to matter how close Christmas is, or that I have things I need to get done. Chances are, you’ll find me on the couch crocheting like mad.

At least I’m creating something.
