Good morning!! (just barely at 11:45am :lol: )

What's up, fellow villagers?

I've started my Christmas baking. Yesterday I made white chocolate dipped pretzel rods. Today I made two batches of biscotti (Coffee Chocolate Chip & Christmas Chocolate Cranberry). I've also cleaned up the kitchen, loaded & run the dishwasher, washed & dried two loads of bedding.

There will be a couple of errands today too. I have to drop off ds's prescription to be filled. I forgot to yesterday. I also got dd an appt this afternoon for her jaw, so I need to do that. When we get home I need to put away the laundry, remake the beds, and vacuum downstairs.

Busy busy busy!

Hope y'all have a great day :grouphug2

For some unknown reason I was wide awake at 4:30 this morning. I laid in bed until 5 and then got up and made a pot of coffee and relaxed on the couch and watched the early news. I started my chores at the crack of dawn and had most of them done before 10 a.m. Since then I've been puttering around doing misc. things. It's a little before 1 p.m. and I'm draggin' butt now. I think I'll have some lunch, lay on the couch with my dogs and see if I can find a halfway decent movie on cable to fall asleep to LOL!

Hope everyone is having a good day!

I love those dipped pretzels... they aren't on my WW, but I love em anyway. I'm going to take off part of the afternoon and clean some house (or do what I can w/o hurting my back) I can't stand it any longer. The living room is awful and my folks are coming Sunday! Yikes!

Then I'm going to steam the dance tutu that has wrinkles so I won't be so stressed during dress rehearsal. Two girls dancing, I hope I hold up!

Not sure how this fits in frugally, but I need to make a special friend a get well card. I've discovered stamping recently and have had a blast "coloring" and all that good stuff. I've also found lots of cool paper here and there for "free". I've also got my hand on an evelope template and now, I've just made the cutest envelopes you could imagine.

Onward fellow tightwads.....

Today got off to a great start. DS (almost 3 months) slept from 10:15pm to 6:15am this morning, so I got plenty of sleep. I fed him at 6:15am and then went back down for a little nap. He woke up again at 8am and we played for an hour before he fell back asleep at 9am. I got to shower, get dressed, and eat breakfast. DH is on call this week, so he is up working at 8am but doesn't leave the house until 9:30am, so we even got to chat this morning before he left!

So far:
*Packed up the item I sold on eBay, we'll go to the post office after the laundry comes out of the dryer
*In the middle of doing a load of laundry
*Cleaned up the kitchen
*Called unemployment and filed my claim
*Emptied and re-loaded the dishwasher
*Caught up on my email
*Started doing some tax planning stuff
*Emptied a bookshelf that DH wants to move tonight

Left on my list for today:
*Call again about the item I want to return, so I can do that when I go to the post office
*Go to the post office
*Take out at least one bag of trash
*Make dinner (still have to figure out what I'm making)

Said "goodbye" to my parents (they visited for a couple of days)
Took van to get brakes checked
Made beds & put up clothes

That's the only chores I'm gonna do today. I have final exams tonight and tomorrow and I'm working on my last essay due tomorrow (I'm just taking a few minute brain break now). I'll get back to work after that. My oldest is home from school for three days with a nasty contagious strep infection. So he's keeping the little one busy with movies so I can get my paper done.

I'm in slow gear...still tired from the 12 hour drive home after the cruise. I'm doing the mountains of laundry, about 1/3 of the way done. Maybe if I stay on top of it all day long I can finish it today, without letting those trusty machines stop. I've not had my workout yet so I still have a list of things to do:

~workout
~LAUNDRY
~fix dinner
~clean up the kitchen again
~sort through the mountain of mail
~make out out my shopping trip for tomorrow (going Christmas shopping)
~manicure & pedicure
~put away clean laundry

That about does it for me today.....
