Yesterday I decided I HAD to make an advent calendar. Some kind of disease makes me have to do some of this stuff last minute. I only marginally thought of an advent calendar in the past couple of months. Yesterday morning something took hold of me and told me I HAD TO!!! do it and I had to do it NOW because it’s almost December 1st. And you have to be able to count down every right? You can’t start on the twelveth? Can you? Is that acceptable? No. no. It has to be December one. My brain when it speaks it speaks fast. So Imagine all that said like a teenager hopped on pixie sticks and red bull. Oh, and add to that a high pitched voice. I’m not sure why but it has a high pitched voice and is really quite annoying
I had many ideas and googles like mad. Finally, my Mom found some old ornaments that I had loved as a kid.
I decided to work something up with those. I have ideas that couldn’t be implemented this year on such short notice so we’re going with a garland and adding a new ornament each day.
Here’s the one they chose for today:
Each one is tied on with a red string that has a number glued to it. Hopefully now Baby Boogie won’t keep asking every morning “Is today Christmas?” and the voice in my head can move on to obsessing about another project.
