Final Countdown of the Days

It's almost here! It's time to relax and enjoy the season. Let good enough be the rule now and allow time to revel in all that you have been preparing. Take time to enjoy your decorated home and enjoy some of the goodies you have prepared. Enjoy the holiday music that is everywhere and watch some of those old movies.

Here are a few tips to help you on your way.

  1. Cleaning:
  • just do maintenance work now
  • delegate where you can
2. Cooking:
  • keep it light
  • eat out more
  • plan a picnic meal by the tree
3. Holiday tasks:
  • set up a gift wrap station and finish wrapping - get rid of those scrappy pieces of wrap that clutter up space
  • as cards come in, check addresses and update your contact list
  • keep an eye on the tasks you have delegated on your calendar - adjust where necessary
  • play some holiday music
  • put together a container for Christmas morning - have in it a couple of trash bags fro used wrap, paper/pen to note who got what and from whom, scissors for opening those pesky wrappings
  • plan a car trip to view the lights or to visit a light display
4. On the day:
  • start jotting down now a list of ideas for future gifts - list sizes - if you plan on doing any re-gifting, make notes of who gave you the gift
  • if you receive a gift that duplicates something you already have (hello nice new coffee maker) start a donation box for the items no longer needed
Wishing all the best holiday season ever!
