The Dude and I have plans to head up to his hometown for a few days later this week. Since we’ll be at his parents place, and I know that at the Christmas holidays we’ll have a ton of stuff to pack into our little car (babies = stuff galore), I decided a few weeks ago to make it my goal to have all my shopping and wrapping done for his side of the family by the time we go, so that I can reduce the amount of
crap stuff we have to take with us on Christmas.
This past Thursday I realized that I had less than a week left to accomplish this goal.
And I was, um, not quite there yet.
So I got down to business!
On Thursday and Friday I wrapped.
On Saturday we shopped.
On Sunday I wrapped some more.
And as of 4 pm Sunday afternoon, my mission was accomplished!
I officially am done all my shopping and wrapping for his side of the family.
And let me tell you, it feels good!
The house is decorated, that huge task is completed, and I am feeling festive.
Let the holidays begin!
