They're coming...is anyone else panicked?

Thanksgiving is only 8 days away...and most of today is gone already!

Darly invited MIL over for Thanksgiving...so that means I've gotta clean the house. If I have time, I'll clean the office too. HA! Don't hold your breath. I also wanted to clean the blinds, but I don't see that happening either.

They're taking pictures at Church this weekend & next weekend for our directory...but we can also order prints. I'm going to order some as the procedes are going to our sister Church in Germany.

So that means I've gotta get my hair done...my roots are really really long. Not quite long enough to chop off the color and call it good yet though. So I got an appointment on Thursday.

I like to have all of my Christmas shopping DONE before Thanksgiving. But that AINT happening as I haven't even got the lists started yet. Darly has hers, but I've still gotta have the talk with DH about what she can actually have from the list. I don't even know what I want for Christmas. And of course DH doesn't know.

I also like to have my Christmas cards in the mail right after Thanksgiving. Don't see that going either... but I guess it's okay to slack off about that as we haven't moved in a long time and none of the folks on my list need our updated address. {see we used to move all the time, so I would send out our cards right after Thanksgiving so they would have our new address and could send us a card back. My cousin's wife used to pick on me in her card...to everyone!}

One thing that will happen is that I WILL get my Christmas decorations up the day after Thanksgiving. And the lights will go up outside on the first day with no snow and it's not freezing outside. I would LOVE it if it got to 80 degrees again, but I won't hold my breath. What will most likely happen is you'll see me up there with hat & gloves hoping I don't slip on the roof trying to get it all perfect. I just had an idea... I should make some sort of permanent marks as to where everything goes. Hummmm... DH thinks I'm obsessed...he's right. But I come by it honestly...you should see my Mom's house.

And then there's our usual busy schedule. Someone take me away!


  1. I think we'll require pictures after you've decorated :)

    I don't know what I want for Christmas yet, either. Wait, yes I do. Snow!!

  2. Isn't it creeping up so fast? It's crazy! :)

  3. It just hit me today that Turkey Day is next week! I kept thinking that I had weeks left. Yikes!

  4. I'm not ready for any of it! Hopefully reading your post will inspire me to do something about it....

  5. Thanksgiving? Hmm, that means turkey. Very good for Cats. I'll supervise Mom as she cleans the house and cooks.

  6. time is flying by! I'm finishing all my Chrismtas shopping this weekend. You couldn't pay me to go to a mall in n. virginia after turkey day.

  7. Boy, there sure is a lot to do before Christmas. I sometimes feel sorry for Thanksgiving. It seems to get brushed aside during the holidays!

  8. Step away from the chaos. Take a deep breath. Count to 10.

    It will all be just great!

  9. We're having thanksgiving at our house too...well, we have it every year at our house. I'm more stressed about the cleaning than I am the food, believe it or not.

    What's on your menu?
