Even worse this weekend. Last week I was just kinda sleepy with a sore throat, by Friday afternoon I wasn't very coherent anymore, and went to bed real early. Slept most of yesterday, and even tho I'm still sleepy right now, I'm trying to stay up all day so I can sleep tonight. So far so good, lol. I'm blaming my husband. He was sick the week before

At my night job I usually get stuck working Christmas and New Year's, since they're a week apart and we have a set schedule each week. Working on holidays sucks

I have to admit, I am a candle fanatic. I currently own around 50 candles, ranging in scents from vanilla and chocolate fudge to fresh berries. While they all smell great, I just feel like I’d want something more unique. For this reason, I make my own soy candles in scents like maple syrup & gingerbread or sugar plums.

Making a soy candle is not difficult at all. It is a little time consuming, taking about an hour to two hours, though a good amount of that time is spent waiting for wax to melt, cool down, or solidify. It also does not require many supplies, which are:

- Soy wax flakes
- Dye
- Candle fragrance oil
- A Ball/Mason jar or a candle jar
- A wick
- Wooden skewers or a plastic knife for stirring
- A glass 2-4 cup measuring cup or a wax melting pot
- Saucepan
- Scissors
- A stove top and pot, microwave, or a candle wax melter
- Knives, paint stirrers, a small clothespin, or a wick holder
- Hot glue gun or glue dots

I purchased all of my candle supplies at Hobby Lobby. For $30, I got a big bag of wax, good for about 3-4 candles, two jars, a 3 pack of dye, two fragrance oils, and a package of wicks. When looking at fragrance oils, wicks, and dyes, make sure you look at the packaging to see if the materials are compatible with soy wax. Dyes or oils that are not may not mix properly into the wax and may be a fire hazard.

Sometimes I don't mind, but this year it really bothered me having to work Christmas. My family wanted me to be up and doing stuff with them Christmas Eve and through the afternoon Christmas day, then I worked all night right after. I got like no sleep for the whole holiday so I was pretty grouchy.
