The Holiday Season - On Your Mark
I once read somewhere that women are the ones who "do" the Holiday Season. Let's face it, that is a pretty accurate statement, even with the most helpful husband or partner. The decorating, the shopping, the cooking, the cleaning - before and after - the wrapping, Christmas cards and photos - all organized and executed primarily by women. And it's a tall order too! While most of us enjoy the fruits of this labor, it can be a bit overwhelming to say the least. It's no wonder that in early November I find myself feeling excited and somewhat nerve racked at the thought of what's coming. So... I will take a few deep breaths... and...ready...set...go!!
Some Of The Things On My To-Do Before Thanksgiving
Have the carpets and couches cleaned.
Wash walls and touch up paint where needed throughout house.
Clean oven (not looking forward to this).
Order free-range turkey from local farmer.
Buy all clothes needed for myself and kids for the upcoming holidays.
Take a family photo for Xmas card and send it to the printer.
Make Thanksgiving menu for 12.
That's it for now. How does your list look?
