    Went through dd (3) stuff and threw away the little bits and ends, collected a few redundant toys for consignment box.

    Wrote out all of the Christmas countdown activities and put them in the felt pockets to begin tomorrow.

    General decluttering of the house. Went around and collected dd's many wayward hair accessories and put them away

    I was Bad. Nothing to prepare for Christmas.

    I went to Women's Bible Study today then out to Perkins with the group. Other than that, I did nothing except play on the computer and watch tv. Shame on me.
