Countdown to Christmas


Me, playing around with my computer camera. Avoiding my to do list.

Love the filters on it. This was actually animated but I didn’t get it saved that what. I am still figuring things out. πŸ™‚ This says I have yet to write my Christmas cards, so I am tossing them around in front of me to remind me. Yea, that works. LOL


I am avoiding all the people and so have not finished shopping. Sigh. Oh, look, a bar, just what I need to relax! πŸ™‚


Ok, enough goofing off, I need to get busy. I need to wrap presents that I do have before said teenage boys get home. I think I am about out of wrapping paper. Yay! I have not bought any the last few years, because I wanted them used up, so now I can buy pretty new ones! πŸ™‚

Countdown to Christmas List:

  1. Buy gifts….ummm
  2. Wrap gifts….yay…new paper to buy.
  3. Clean bathrooms before company this weekend….ugh on the cleaning part.
  4. Vacuum, mop…….etc etc….normal stuff.
  5. Wash all bedding for oldest son and family coming home! Yay!
  6. Fit in blogging and other computer work. I consider that a break. πŸ™‚
  7. Oh, finish decorating inside…been stalling…don’t know why.
  8. Bake….ummm….simple stuff.
  9. Get those steps in for my step challenge this month!
  10. Read my last 6 books! YIKES! Cheers to those that read way more than me, I have 27 read.
  11. Oh, do that Christmas card thingy that I really do enjoy but procrastinate about.
  12. Help middle child with homework that he keeps putting off! Umm…he must get that from me. Oops.
  13. Breathe.
  14. Eat.
  15. Sleep.
  16. Grocery shop. Ugh.
  17. Finish the budget.
  18. Finish organizing the basement so said company will have room to enjoy.
  19. Keep the towels washed and supplied in the linen closet.
  20. Do I really think I will accomplish all this? Oh, boy. Give it my best shot! Stay tuned!


I am a writer and an artist, at least in my mind. :) I love to read!

  1. I hear you. There’s always so much to do. I gave up sending Christmas cards, and that helped a lot. But it seems there’s always something to wrap. (I’m still using paper from Christmas pasts too!) I still have baking ahead of me. Hopefully I’ll get to it this week. My sons are already asking for the chocolate kiss cookies…

  2. Yes ma’am, that’s the list right there! I haven’t figured out how I’m going to tackle all of it and some of it, I’ve given up or altered to make more time to ENJOY the holidays.
