Making a list and checking it twice...

Yeah! A bullet post! Just what you always wanted, right? Right. Here we go!

Things I have not done for Christmas yet
  • Decorated upstairs. The downstairs is done. The tree (real, of course) is up and prettyfied. However, my upstairs living areas are very very bare.
  • Made cookies with the boys. Yeah, I suck.
  • Sent out cards. They are made though so I guess that's a step in the right direction.
  • Finished shopping. I thought I was done. I wasn't. I hate shopping.
  • Paid any bills for December. So this isn't really a Christmas one but it is what it is. I just have not had time to sit down and do it. Our creditors love us right now.
  • Drank too much spiked egg nog. However, I did have my first jello shot. That's gotta count for something, right?
  • Planned any part of Christmas Eve dinner OR Christmas dinner. And why must we celebrate with a different side of the family on each day? And why must they always be at my house?
  • Cleaned. Once again, not specifically for Christmas but I'm blaming my lack of motivation on the Baby Jesus. I'm trying to recreate the smell of the manger.

Things I have done for Christmas

  • Wrapped gifts. My kids are spoiled. So are my nieces and nephews. And I'm broke. Did I mention that?
  • Bought and decorated a tree. We did not cut down our own, however. Snow and cold sucks.
  • Ordered Joe's present offline. Hopefully it will be here in time. If not? I don't care. I'll give him a different gift and between you and me, he'll probably like that better. *wink wink*
  • Huh...I'm running out here. Apparently, I'm not nearly as ready as I thought. Where did 2006 go???
  • Wished all of you a Merry Christmas. (see that? i'm taking credit for having it done WHILE actually doing it! that's creativity right there!)

We just bought the first part of our son's gifts today. We're slackers.

Your first jello shot EVER? No way!

Jessie - I posted by Tag from you today. Also, wondered if you are being blocked from posting on my site like some others are?
