After Christmas, I Kept Saying

After Christmas I will give the house a really thorough cleaning.

After Christmas I will think whether to get the 2 crowns the dentist says I need.

After Christmas I will have my echocardiogram.

After Christmas I will look into airline tickets for next Spring.

After Christmas we will decide which coffee table to get one another for a late Christmas present.

After Christmas we will edit Demetrios' paper yet again. This time, to make it comprehensible to the average psychoanalyst, if possible.

After Christmas, I will finish the heavy blanket for Jackson.

After Christmas I will take out my marble run toys from the attic and build a marble run as tall as the ceiling, that uses every single piece in the two sets. And maybe I'll even order some more gizmos so the marbles can do even more interesting stuff on their way down to the floor and the Mousetrap contraption thingy.

So now it's After Christmas.

I have a long list titled "After Christmas." I can't remember quite what is on it, and I'm not ready to dig it out and think on it, either! Are you, really?

I have one as well. Mine is mostly to do with getting my house straight and now a friend is coming next week so I HAVE to do it :(

Looking forward to seeing Jackson's blanket (and Jackson in his blanket). I love your knitting.

What? You haven't finished that list yet? Hurry up, girl! It's almost time for New Year's resolutions - and a whole new list! :-)
I'm waiting for New Year's to make my list......
In fact, that's my resolution, to make a list! But the first thing on it will be to get Christmas properly put away.

Yeah, after Christmas (and returning to Ottawa) I have to jump back into job searching...

Do at least do the things related to you health though, we want you in good health! :)

I have an After Christmas list quite similar to that. But I'm waiting until January instead.

Goodness, I haven't even thought about "Life After Christmas" yet !

The marble run sounds fabulous; please post photos :-)

After Christmas? No. Not till January 6th. Breathe easy for a few more days.
