The week before Christmas

Its the week before Christmas. Well 8 days before Christmas, and I have so many things to do. I need an extra 10 days at least.

I have to quilts to bind. This shouldn't take too long. If I cut the fabric and get it all on, then I should be able to finish them on Friday during quilt class. Friday is supposed to be my day off, but I'm watching my nephew. However, Brian is off also, and he doesn't know it yet, but he is going to be watching him for me.

I have a few presents to wrap still. Nothing major, at least I'm done buying them.

I have relatives coming in from out of town. They won't be staying at my house, just visiting so that helps.

Brian and I are going to a Christmas party tonight.

Then we are going to a hockey game on Thursday.

Oh did I mention my heater still doesn't work upstairs? So Brian has been working around the clock on that, at least when he isn't working at his day job.

I'm hosting Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at my house, and my house needs a major scrub down. However when you do daycare, it is pointless to do the major scrub down until all of the kids are gone for Christmas Break. I also need to make a menu for the two days, and make a Costco run at some point.

Don't even get me started on the months of January and February. Besides this is supposed to be about Christmas stress.

Tree Hunting

Saturday we spent the day in the frigid mountains searching for the perfect Christmas tree. It was actually a good day. Family all got along, tree hunting didn't take but a few hours, and after we went for pizza, then yummy clam chowder for dinner.
