Christmas time is upon us….

This past weekend we finished decorating (i.e. hanging up the lights) on the garage, so that is now done. The rest of the house is all decorated, I'll upload pics soon. Saturday we went and ordered our new sofa, boy oh boy was I wishing for this one. Luckily the place we found the sofa at has free delivery and does layaway, so I put $100.00 down and told them I will pay 100.00 every two weeks and we will have it to start the new year. We then went to DP's christmas party at work which was nice and relaxing all together. As I look on the weeks ahead of us my mind is a flurry again because I have so much I need to accomplish. I decided to go with the bathsalts and homemade hand soap for christmas ideas for my daughters teacher and the girls at work. I got cute little gift bags at Hobby Lobby for .99 cents each so now, its just making everything, and this is what is planned for this weekeend. Not to mention I'm going to start baking after the bath salts are done. So hopefully that task will get finished. I have my daughters gifts pretty much done, I need to get her 2 more things. My son on the other hand he is a different story,I haven't really gotten too much for him yet, so that will also get done either by ordering online, or picking stuff up after work. The next weekend is a free pay weekend, as my pay only will go to utilities and the rest will be used for DP's christmas items. Ugh.., I look at the calendar and my mind starts spinning, I'm spreading the money from the savings account and the next two pays in my head, so everything works out as planned and I think all the thinking I've been doing, is making my head spin more. So I resorted to the list making, which keeps me organized but only for so long lol. Oh well, tis the season.

No word on the outcome of the jobs here, so they I guess are waiting to tell everyone at the begining of the year, who knows, but all I can do is hope for the best and keep my fingers crossed that I am one of the ones who stays. Out of 5 girls, 2 want to leave and the remaining 3 want their jobs, so why not pick the ones who want to leave right? Who knows at this point, but all I can do is take it day by day!
