100 days 'til Christmas!!
Well, now it's 99 days, but I am still so excited that Jennifer over List Planet has launched 100 Days to Christmas - a blog carnival meant to help us get ready for the holidays. Of course I'm late (those of you who know me are wondering what's new) but I am ready to start planning! So if we are at 99 days until the big day that means we are 16 days away from Baby Girl's big "21", 44 days away from Halloween, 57, days away from decorating for Christmas, 69 days away from Thanksgiving, 79 days away from My Annual Cookie Exchange, and 81 Days until finals week! Not to mention all of the other birthdays, book club meetings, Wine Tasting trips, and Holiday outings in between....did I mention Momma will be home for some time during the Cookie exchange week...whew! I don't know if I could make it without her.We are making grand plans so I better make sure I am WELL prepared (studies) before she gets here. Anywho, no matter if you are following the 100 Days to Christmas or the CEO's (I do miss the forums but have been using the info for years) Organized Christmas, they both talk about the importance of getting out a Calendar and start writing all of the "stuff" down. As you can see from my little countdown above I can check that off, however I do need to add somethings...but first I need to set my goals for the season...so today I shall gather my tools of the trade; pull out my Emily Barnes holiday planner (been using this for 21 years), My Frantic Woman book, and a few other resources and begin building this year's Holiday Notebook. I also plan on getting down the Halloween boxes so that I can start scattering them around the house...Oh! I'm getting excited aren't you! I love summer and during the summer I always think...this is my new favorite season,but then the crisp air rolls in and I start dreaming of sweaters, twinkling lights, baking with Momma and leftover turkey sandwiches...yummo! Gotta go pull some boxes and do some algebra, Tata for now!
