If you are one of my children look away now. I mean it......ok. I made good progress today and I am counting it toward my Handmade post because, well, it's handmade. I had taken a personal day from work to be here for the plasterer and decided to really cram on getting these finished, or as close to finished as I could get. I was so focused that I completely forgot that tonight was our Christmas dinner party at work until one of my co-workers called to remind me that we were car pooling. At first I had absolutely no idea what she was talking about. Car pooling? Oh yeah! dinner tonight, and I needed a shower and had just enought time to get ready. Casting one last longing look at my project, because I was really into it you know? I showered and got ready, slipped some shoes on and ran out the door. And now you are about to learn something about me that you didn't know. When I am focused on something... I mean really focused, I don't pay attention to anything else. I mean, sometimes I can't hear when people speak to me when my attention is elsewhere.
Which explains how I could get to the restaurant, and not notice that I was wearing two completely different shoes until I went to the ladies room and happened to look down at my feet. Yeah. you would think I would notice one closed toe shoe and one open toe. At least they were the same color. Kind of.
Sometimes I'm a little absent minded. Sheesh.
Take my mind off this please. Share your handmade or thrifted holiday gift or decoration below. And check your shoes, I've found it comes in handy sometimes.
