I am finished decorating! I have decided to host Christmas this year for my family. I had the hardest time trying to get all of my stuff up. The thing that took the longest was getting my tree and decorating it. I am a fan of a live tree. They look so pretty and make the whole house smell great. How about you? Do you prefer live or artificial trees?
Family is such an important thing to me. I love being around my family and seeing them. I went to the mountains with them this week. I had a blast visiting with them and seeing new sights. I have learned that every moment is precious and we never know when it will be the last time that we see a particular person again. Take time to be with your family today.
Who has started thinking about Christmas? I know that I have. I know that it is not even Thanksgiving yet but I do not like waiting till the last minute. If I wait until right before Christmas, I may not have the money to get what I need to give everyone. I am trying to be cheap this year and buy local. Saturday, I went to a Arts and Craft show. I had a great time and found a few great things for my family. I got shirts, jewelry and some nick knacks for everyone. I only have a few people left to buy for. How about you? Are you almost finished?
Who here has wanted to clean lately? I know that I have not. Because of that, my house is a mess. I spent all of this weekend cleaning it. I think I will be doing a room a day this week just to get rid of somethings that have been piling up. I believe that I will be having a yard sale this upcoming weekend to get rid of all of the junk that I do not need. I have come to the conclusion that unless it has been used in the last few months, I probably do not need it. How do you clean house?
