But I should be able to finish them off tonight, more about which means I can schedule their picture appointment for this week. Check!
This week is crazy because I’m trying to get everything out of the way except baking. I’m off all of next week, and my gift to myself is to have a few days before Christmas where all I have to do is hang out with my family and bake cookies. Assuming this week doesn’t kill me first.
