Christmas To-Dos

December 10, 2007

Does anyone else hear a clock ticking? I freaked out a little yesterday because of the holiday shipping deadlines. I got it in my head that Christmas was 10 days away and but’s not. What a relief! Suffice it to say, Bill and I will be busy wrapping and shipping this week.

ChristmasToDosI’ve been keeping track of my Christmas crafting using my “white” board. It’s this cool sliding linen covered bulletin board/glass “white” board that I got from the evil pottery barn. I like it because I can slide the bulletin board over my to-dos because sometimes I get a little stressed with it staring at me. I’m getting there with my crafting. I’ve swirled my list in case you’re name is on there. I don’t want to ruin any surprises.

This weekend was wonderful. We met our friend, Mark, for breakfast on Saturday. He was in town for a quick visit and it was nice to catch up with him! Then Bill and I went to the mall to do a little Christmas Shopping. It was nice to be in the stores, soaking up the holiday atmosphere, but we get there when the stores open to try and avoid most of the crowds. And I knew exactly where I was going and what I was getting. Focused as I was, I did get drawn into one store and make some unplanned purchases. ‘Tis the season! We got home and I intended to do some sewing, but I was kinda tired from getting up early so I snuck into bed to take a little nap. Bill found me and decided it was a good idea so we snoozed the afternoon away. I did get up and we had Indian for dinner (yum!) and I did more crafting. We stayed up until the wee hours catching up on Grey’s Anatomy and House. Thankfully, the pups let us sleep in on Sunday. For the rest of the day, I was glued to my sewing machine. Boy did I get a lot done!

Still no tree, but we are making progress on that end. We found a tree stand. Slightly harder than you might think as Bill couldn’t find any at Target. Bill’s been putting up lights outside and they look very festive. We’ll have to get moving on the inside decorations!
