I took the day off from school yesterday to get caught up with things around my house. It seems that MOST of my day was spent cleaning! I steam cleaned my bathroom and kitchen. I love my little steam machine. I borrowed Britt's last summer and liked it so much I had to go get one for myself! I had such grand plans of getting things done yesterday and I never finished my list.
I have a room that is my computer/scrapbook room. It is my collect all room. When I pick up around the house EVERYTHING goes in there. I really wanted to get that organized yesterday and I didn't get it to. I also wanted to start wrapping gifts but never got to that either. My goal is now to spend one hour a day after school down in my basement (where everything is stashed) and wrap a little at a time.
While on the topic of gifts, I have kept a composition book that I write down everything I get people for Christmas. It helps me from duplicating year after year. I have this year's up to date and now I need to make a to do list for what is left.
Brittainy and I play a word game when we don't want little ones to know what we are talking about, so I am going to try it here and see if you know what I mean. I still have to make a list of festive hosiery fillings. (I don't like to spill the beans in print! I am hoping you know what I'm talking about!) I like having my notebook to refer to for this task. I get ideas from years past :) I have many to purchase fillings for! :) :)
How are all of you coming along with your holiday to do list?
