Things I have to do:

* basics - make bed, do & stay on top of dishes, tidying. No gardening because I'm in crisis craft mode here.
* shine my kitchen and bedroom "sinks"
* finish decoration #3 and start on #4
* visit neighbours with gifts
* wrap last generic present
* exercise and stretch
* REST!!!

Things I want to do:
* cook another nourishing meal for fridge & freezer
* get hair off legs

Try to:
* get to church, either for a quick office visit or to the evening Eucharist

I'm writing this on Tuesday night and may pop back tomorrow with changes and / or updates.

Stay calm, everyone...

It's still only 7:13 Tuesday, but I have a few things for tomorrow..:

-get ingredients for Christmas dinner dessert
-wash large quilt
-clear out pantry of 'illegal' food
-sort and purge papers found in a bag hiding behind my door...
-make sure bedroom is straightened for fiance's grandmother visiting
-keep everything in order so I can return to a clean apartment after spending the night at mum's

Best of luck to you guys with yours. May it be as stress free as possible :) I'd like to think we'll all have a very happy holiday...

LMills, what country are you in? I thought you were American, but I wonder now after seeing that you say "Mum" instead of "Mom". We're "Mum"mers here in Australia, too.

Anyway, it's 11.30. I've wrapped the generic present, driven (!) out to church and back, and have been to see one neighbour. Will do some more this afternoon. Am madly embroidering right now :-)

I'm American but exposure to a lot of different cultures has given my mother 'mum' 'okaasan' 'haha' 'ma' etc. Just a habit I suppose :)

Glad to hear you got those things done! I love to embroider...working with your hands can be so therapeutic...
I still didn't buy forgotten groceries e_e

I'm snowed in, so not much I can do. Last of the packing and maybe bake some cookies. Otherwise, I just need to relax and not stress about not being where I should be.
Hoping to stay in remission after the birth of a healthy baby girl. On Pentasa during my pregnancy, went med-free 2 months to nurse (stupid), but back on Pentasa and still nursing.

Woohoo! I've finished the four decorations! Talk about stressful - I feel as if I've just sat a round of horrible end of year exams.

I've also visited the neighbours, but now have a v messy house and have to eat a quick dinner and maybe get to church. Oh, and just to make things more fun, I've just found out that I should cook something for tomorrow's function. I did ask a week ago and got no reply, so assumed that the answer was no, I needn't. I haven't even shopped for festive cooking, so whatever I bring is going to have to be something that can be made quickly with whatever I have in the pantry. Hmmm.

How deep is the snow, inflamed? Do you have food there? Are you safe?

LMills, did you travel around a lot as a child, or do you live in a very multicultural area?

Survivor, I hope you can get some rest.

Christmas peace and cheer to you all,

Ivy.
