Say What?

This is the conversation that my husband and I had this morning:

Me: Hey, Babe.... can you fix my super-duper-big-circle-paper-punch? There is one edge that just doesn't cut well. Technically it works, but I really have to push hard and my arm starts to hurt. This is for my Christmas cards and so I have to have this done ASAP.

Hubby: I can, but wouldn't it be easier if you just had me cut them out for you?

Me: If you would prefer, that would be great. Here is the stack of card stock, 2 circles per page please.

Hubby: How many circles do you need me to cut out?

Me: 60

Hubby: WHAAAAAA?????? You send out 60 Christmas cards EVERY YEAR?!?!?!?!?!

Me: No. Geeze!.... I send out 120, I already cut out the 1st 60 circles and now my arm is tired.

That's right!!!! This week is Christmas-Card-Crunch-Time!!!!! I have 120 Christmas cards to make and my deadline is Wednesday the 24th. And to throw in a real kink... we are going to be out of town this weekend and I will be unable to work on them at all from Friday to Sunday afternoon. I hope to get a lot accomplished this week but since my youngest has hit the terrible twos almost instantly this week, I might be setting the bar a little high. :-)

Oh AND this is my 100th blog post!!!! YAY for me!
