We just returned from our Thanksgiving festivities yesterday. We made sure to get right on putting our things away. I even did four loads of laundry!! I didn't have my December meals planned, but we did make it to the grocery store with a list in hand. I think this week I can get to planning the rest of the month's meals.
The really good news is that I am so close to being done shopping for Christmas! I ordered two final items for my husband this weekend. I can only think of one thing that still needs to be ordered online. I'm primarily down to one gift and some stocking stuffers. I have a plan for those, too, so that feels really good. I may just make my December 1 goal to complete shopping, if I can a lot done today! (No big deal if I don't since I'm so close.)
I expect several items arrive in the mail, so expect to hear that I did some gift wrapping later this week. Of course, I don't even have a tree up at this point to put the gifts under, but what fun it will be to have gifts to put under there as soon as I do!
Right now our plan is to put up the tree this weekend. This will be the latest I have put up our tree EVER, but we have never traveled so far away for Thanksgiving before. I now actually understand why some people probably put up their tree BEFORE Thanksgiving. Of course, there is no right or wrong way, right?
Did you get a start on your holiday shopping? Are you finished, or close? When do you put up your tree?
