Whoo-hoo! It’s Twitchy Time!

So I open up my stats this morning and holy cow – somebody “found” me yesterday.  Considering even I didn’t head over here, I was surprised to see so many hits in one day.  So, while I was putting ornaments on my wee Christmas tree, somebody was reading all about my little musings on life.  Hmm, at least I had a cup of cocoa to keep me company.  🙂

This is the time of year that really brings out the worst in me.  It seems like with every box I bring down from the attic, my “twitchiness” factor ratchets up a notch.  Anybody else get a little rattled by stuff laying about the house?  What with all the kids’ stuff and now bits and pieces of garland and glitter (aptly coined the herpes of the craft world by someone way more funny than I), I am twitching more than something really twitchy.

So, I guess the only solution is to go get some organizational magic accomplished.  Too bad a nap sounds so much more appealing.  Have a great Monday everybody!
