Feeling Ambitious This Week

I have some goals this week in addition to my regular homemaking tasks. They are:

* REGISTER TO VOTE!!!!!!! The deadline is tomorrow, I do believe. Gotta do my part.

* Blogging. I have a few posts...just trapped in the ol' noggin.

* I want to go back and watch the convention speeches. I watched Palin's last night. She's a little firecracker. I think I like this broad. (If she becomes our VP then I will stop referring to her as a broad, but until then...;). I also need to watch the VP debate. Lots of politics this week.

* I want to finalize my Christmas gift ideas. I'm quite conflicted on this issue. I would love to do all homemade gifts, but 1. I'm not exactly sure what I want to do yet, and 2. I don't want my gifts to look like a home-ec project. If I make something, I want it to be perfect and I just don't know that I can do that at this point...not with only 2 and a half months to go.  Or, if I decide against homemade gift ideas, I need to start thinking about other options. Ugh...gift giving. It's exhausting to me. I mean...I like to give gifts, but I agonize. You understand.

* I have a craft project idea. I think it'll be pretty simple and won't cost a lot of money. I usually talk myself out of things like this, but I want to give it a shot. I'll let you know how it goes. (If it turns out cute, maybe that'll help me out with the previous goal. That would be fabulous!)

* Finish Northanger Abby. I'm almost done...I just haven't been picking it up as often as I should. Honestly, it may be my least favorite Austen novel. I like it. I just don't love it.

* To watch the Texans game next Sunday and not feel like punching someone in the face. Did anyone see that trainwreck today?!!! Oh my goodness...put me in a bad mood for the entire afternoon. Grrr!!!

I think that's it. It's gonna be a busy week.
Hope you guys have a great week.

If you're not registered to vote...GO DO IT.  TOMORROW!

Register! Every vote counts. I didn't watch the Texans yesterday, I was still in mourning over the Aggies. I think I will begin fasting and praying for them.

There is an award for you on my blog. Feel free not to post it on yours as it is time consuming.

I am having the same Christmas present dilemma. I want the handmade gifts to be worth giving, maybe a few test runs are in order. I'm so glad everyone is registering to vote!! Oh and I never heard did you have an success at Round Top?

Anyway, Miss you and hope you guys are doing great!

C'mon! She's cute as a button. Who's with me on this? Anyone? Anyone?

And as far as round top...I'm figuring out where things go...then I'll post some pics of my finds and some pics from the day. How 'bout you, Cat?

Sorry Steph I am with Robin on this one...Palin maybe cute as a button, but I need a bit more from my VP :)
