Love your clustering of trees behind the journaling and caroler. The lights going across the top are a great touch. Your list sounds like it's very practical and hope you can get them all done.

Thank you all for your kind words. As it happens, I did get more sleep ... a LOT more sleep ... mainly because one of my potted Rafus palms (http://www.flickr.com/photos/citizencane/6650046023) got me in the eye last Friday for not watering it sooner. LOL! The eye doctor went, "Tsk, tsk, you should be more careful," and gave me a couple of solutions to use, whether to heal a cut or to flush out the mote I cannot say. I was in too much pain to ask, and I've been sleeping almost nonstop since then.
It's amazing what lots of sleep will do! The dark circles under my eyes are almost gone, and a lot of other aches and pains, too. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 1996 and have been fighting that battle mostly with diet and occasional exercise. Now I need to add "more sleep" to the list. And more exercise.
The eye? It still bothers me when I blink, so I know it's not healed yet. It better be okay by Friday, tho, or the doctor is gonna hafta probe for a leaf fragment, if there is one. Ugh! Hey, if it's not one thing, it's another, right?
