Yes, folks, that's how I feel! I did it! I pulled it off! Phew.....

8 pairs of PJ bottoms completed before 1pm on the 24th.....everything wrapped prior to 3 pm on the 24th.....lovely dinner with my sis and MIL on Christmas Eve, then a quiet evening with DSO here at home......

Tuesday/Wednesday last week was my family's Christmas - my sis from Montreal and her guy were down, my parents from Brockville and my whole gang landed at my sister's in Waterloo.......she held a big open house on Tuesday evening, which rounded up a bunch of ex-Montrealers who have all ended up in Kitchener/Waterloo - kind of neat because one lady, I used to work with (my sister and dad worked with her too.....about 25 years ago!), and my mom's best friend.....and a bunch of other folks. Then we had our traditional Christmas gift exchange and turkey was nice and relaxed (this is a first, believe me!).....and we had a lovely visit.

Christmas morning - all of our kids arrived back from their other parents' houses.....(my daughters came from their dad's and Tony's daughter and son came from their mom's)....and we had a fun time exchanging gifts and laughs.......and then packed up the van and drove a few km down the road to MIL's.....with the turkey and a few other bits and pieces......unfortunately, my youngest daughter came down with an attack of some kind (gastric) and she and I enjoyed ourselves in the emergency department of our local hospital for 4 hours......they don't know what happened, but agreed it was a good thing to bring her in.....could be appendix (showing a bit high), could be lots of things - something to follow with the family doc in the new year (or sooner if it happens again).

I'll be back later on! Just wanted you all to know that I'm still alive!

Oh, right and the accomplished part - I managed a STS over the holidays so far! Yippee!
