1,000 Gifts . . . again

It’s been a long day.  The kids got most of their schoolwork done, since everyone is finally feeling better after our family-wide joust with a stomach bug (blech!)  It was a beautiful day weather-wise, and I was able to get some shopping done during the girls’ dance classes.  The night has come and cold winds are blowing.  I’m up later than I intended to be (and I’d been doing so well!) but there were a lot of things to cover before teaching my class tomorrow and I just never made it here to put down my list until now.  I’m determined to head off to bed as close to midnight as possible, so I’ve got to go quickly . . . I definitely need to make time soon to get myself a lovely notebook to keep this list in so it’s easier to add to on a more regular basis!

So here we go, 1,000 Gifts continued!
