Well, we are down to the wire now, aren't we? As of tomorrow, we only have a week until the big day.
For the most part, I think I'm ready. I've got one gift left that I would love to track down but, so far am not having any luck. Yes, Amazon has it. But for a price that I am not willing to pay. At this point, I think, I'm willing to let this one go, if I can't chance upon a local store that carries it.
Currently, I'm knee deep in Christmas candy/baking (peanut butter fudge? Done. Almond bark? Done. Peppermint Double Chocolate Chip cookies? Done.). The spritz cookies still need to be done...probably tomorrow. Today, I just could not face wrestling with the cookie press. And I am still deciding whether or not I need to throw another candy/cookie into the mix for the neighbors.
Short aside, the friends two doors down, just sent over a home-made peanut brittle that is out of this world. No one else in my family cares for it (the ogres) so it's all for me! And then I wonder why I am not pleased with the scale lately.
I bought generic Christmas cards, since we have ZERO pictures of us this past year, about a week ago with every intention of sending at least a couple. The cards are sitting on the dining room table, glaring at me. Hopefully, tomorrow...but I'm beginning to think this may also just go by the wayside.
I have to say, having The Husband home all day every day (yes, we are wrapping up his first full week of retirement) is putting me off my game. Okay, FINE! That is the excuse I am using for why so many things are going by the wayside.
On another note, it's probably too late to order this for a Christmas gift but I ordered this shirt for myself that arrived the other day. It calls itself a sweatshirt but it doesn't look like a standard sweatshirt. It has a boat collar, is a nice weight and has a curved hem; I do love a curved hem. Currently, it appears to be mostly out of stock but if you are on the search for this type of shirt, I highly recommend this one since I fell in love with it as soon as I opened the package.
Yes, I am a person who can fall in love with an article of clothing. This shirt will be worn on repeat for the majority of this "winter." (Can we call it winter when it is currently 70 degrees Fahrenheit? Why do I have a feeling that February is going to knock us for a loop regarding winter weather? That being said, the remainder of those damn pine trees need to figure out how NOT to fall down in my yard; I simply cannot deal with that again any time soon.)
The other last bit of Christmas that I need to deal with is stocking stuffers. Particularly for The Husband. For some reason, this year, I am running into a road block with stocking stuffer ideas.
How about you? Are you all set and ready to go? Have any stocking stuffer ideas to share?
