Holy Christmas Time Batman!

I've been ridiculously busy crocheting Christmas presents. The weather here has been horrendous... And I feel as though my body will quit on me at any moment.

Christmas presents: I've gotten about 2/3 through my list, and that includes all of the major ones... I've finished all of the pieces of my brother's sweater, I just have to sew it together now. And I think I may have added 5 more people, plus 2 gift exchange presents to my list of stuff to do. There's FOURTEEN DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS, AM I INSANE!?!?!?!?

The weather is making me extraordinarily busy at work, as well as increasing my achy pains everywhere. It's getting quite difficult to have any kind of restful sleep. Last night I slept for 4 hours, and woke up with minimal pain (and minimal energy). The night before I slept for 8-9 hours, without moving, and woke up with numerous dislocations (lots of energy upon waking, which was quickly sapped away due to the pain). I have to find the sweet spot again, the one where I get enough sleep without waking up in pieces. It's a difficult balance.

Speaking of dislocations, my hands and ribs are getting worse, and my ankle is still struggling to remain intact inside my brace. I would really like to be able to wear my winter boots, but it's an either/or with the brace.

I've also been randomly depressed the last couple of weeks, I just feel like I need to cry, and I honestly can't find a reason for it.

Don't know if I'll be able to post again before Christmas with all the projects that need finishing... I haven't even made it to the chiropractor in over a month...

In case you don't go near your blog then before Christams - Happy Christmas from the UK.

I am sure your presents will be much appreciated.

The pain I can't do much about apart from pacing but that sounds as though its gone out the window with work, preparations for Christmas and the weather.

So pain free Christmas Wishes and hope to see you in the New Year.

Take care.

Hi Sweetie, so sorry about all the pain you're experiencing. Just reading about all the crocheting you are doing makes my hands ache! I knit mostly now. I'd been crocheting for about 20yrs (wow that makes me feel old!!! teehee I'm 27). It's become a bit difficult for me to make any big projects when it comes to crochet. I used to pop out afghans every 2 weeks! So major props to ya! Pain-free Christmas wishes to you! <3

Merry Christmas to both of you loverly people!

As it sits now, all I have left is ONE scarf, and I need to sew my brother's sweater pieces together. I stacked all my hats today, and it measures 25 inches high.

I'm proud of me!
