Checking My List Twice

As Christmas draws nearer, my list of things to do grows longer. Isn't that always the case?! So each day I check my list to see what I can check off, and what still needs to be done. Here's where I'm at so far:

Christmas cookies - check (baked yesterday)
Christmas cards - three quarterss of a check (They're written, addressed, and sealed, but I'm waiting on stamps from the post office.)
Christmas decs - check (done the day after Thanksgiving: two trees, outside lights, etc.)
Christmas shopping - half a check? - (I'm getting there.)
Presents wrapped - no check (Haven't even started!)
Watching Christmas movies with my hubby - check (We get in at least two each week.)

So, I guess I'm getting there. Of course somehwere in the grand scheme of things, I'd love to have some time to write. Maybe that will be my present to myself over the holidays. I have two weeks off coming up at the end of the month. It's my goal to write SOMEthing each day. We'll see how that goes! I'd love to add some checks to that particular list.

Until next time,

Happy Reading! (If you're looking for a quick holiday read, I have a FREE read available at The Wild Rose Press: Mistletoe and Folly.)

Sounds as if you are way ahead of the crowd in things done! My family and I made Kringla yesterday - that' always a fun day. And my house is half decorated with boxes still sitting around. My garland is in a pile on my front porch - waiting for a warmer day to get strung along with lights. Our barnyard Christmas star is up - so all is well, sort of!

You'll get there, DL. There's still plenty of time!

Still trying to figure out the logistics of hosting Christmas Day for my family. Hoping to find a restaurant, but it's near impossible.
