Light at the end of the tunnel

Things are going back to normal at work. My editor is still off, but this is our quiet time, so there is not much to do.

The extra hours have helped immensely. I love to spend, and let's face it, this time of year it's hard not to go a little overboard. That said, I have shown much more restraint than in past years. That couple with the extra money from the hours means this is the first time I won't be playing catch up for the first three months of next year. It feels good.

I finished up the last little bit of Christmas shopping last night.

I have two things left to make - the last of the Christmas socks is almost done - I finished up the heel flap at Job # 2 tonight, and I have tomorrow night and Saturday at Job #2 to finish it completely.

The only other Christmas project on the go is Dave's cousin's quilt - and I'm taking this Friday off to finish it.

That means, come Sunday, I am free and clear of all holiday obligations! Wow... that's a darn good feeling.

How is your Christmas coming along?

I still have too much to knit and not enough time, lol! Next week will be a busy work week for me as well. Plus you know the happenings in my life over the past week, and my knitting has been pretty much nil. I never touched the needles yesterday, and all I managed today was the heel on a sock. :(

I'm happy to report that my tunnel light is also shining brightly! It feels great!
