100 Days Until Christmas!!!
Does this fact stress you out like it does me?
Ahhhhhh! Can I just skip it this year? I mean who really needs this pressure anyway.
If I didn’t have little ones who believe in magic I might be tempted. But I do have kids and I so want them to hold onto that magic. I find the harder life gets the more I need it too.
No I haven’t forgotten Halloween and Thanksgiving. You’ll see me go overboard with those holidays as well
Once again I’ll be doing my holiday countdown. Setting
superhuman moderate holiday goals for the week and trying to pull them off without going Looney, and driving my family insane.
I’m also going to match last years goal of Halloween (custom costumes for all eight of us & calorie-free goodies) for less than $100.
Plus – Do you want to hear my goal for Christmas. Six kids, 1 Hubby, 14 siblings, Parents, Neighbors and Friends, 1 dog, and a gazillion other things that have flown from my mind for the present... all for the measly amount of $200.00 or less. That’s it. Not a penny more (I can dream, Can’t I?). I guess that means I’ll finally be using all the sewing and crafting stuff I’ve been collecting over the past couple of decades.
Shah! Don’t tell Prince Erik, he’ll have me committed for sure. I know it might not be a realistic goal but it is practical for the situation we are going through. Plus there’s nothing like a little challenge to light a little fire under my backside to get me creatively motivated into action.
I might not meet the goal, but I’ll give it a good old-fashioned try. And let you know my triumphs and failures along the way.
First thing on my list. Pull out the Holiday Planner and give it a go-over. Click on the picture to see how I made it
Every Tuesday I’ll list my new weeks goals. You can join in (PLEASE) and give me suggestions as well.
More than anything I want this Holiday Season to be about Love and Family. Because if I met all my other goals, but I didn’t have my Family or the Love there everything else would be meaningless.
