Good morning! It's sleeting off and on here...expecting a major ice storm here. Gripey even got gas for the generator that we've never used.... .
I'm (at the risk of :beat: ) preparing for that danged colonoscopy.... . So I have a few things to do while I can't eat anything to do to keep my mind off it.

~clean the bathrooms (since I'll be in there all day anyway....sorry)
~wrap a few gifts
~wash bathroom rugs
~wash my sheets
~sweep the floors
~straighten up all around

Hope everyone stays warm and has a productive day.

I'm so glad that I made it out of Walmart alive this morning!!!! What a madhouse! I'm done with the shopping though! Thank goodness!

Later on this afternoon is dd's Christmas program at school, then juice and cookies after. I have a few presents to wrap before that!

the boys & I are in beautiful sunny California to spend Christmas with DH ~ he has rented a very nice condo near the base ~ I know it sounds silly, but we spent a few hours over the weekend cleaning/organizing the kitchen - he'll be here for a few months, so it may as well be like home :)

today's agenda -

* go to the base to get an updated ID card
* take the boys to the beach - (I like to hunt for shells)
* wrap presents that are hiding inside a suitcase in the closet :)
* use a gift card (Outback Steakhouse) to eat dinner out (it was an early gift from my MIL)

Beautiful mild, sunny day here on the Georgia coast. Praying it stays this way until after Christmas as well cause if I can't have snow on Christmas, I'll take the mild temps.

Was very busy all last week with Christmas projects at church, so my housework here at home got a little backed up. Spent most of the day yesterday getting caught up and will finish up this morning with the kitchen and mopping of the hardwood floors. I'm totally done with all of my Christmas shopping (gifts), but need to buy a few things for my Christmas dinner. Still have presents to wrap, but need tape to finish. DH is on night shift this week and will go in at 3 this afternoon and work till 11 tonight, so I will cook an early supper today. I'm really looking forward to having a few days of rest before the family arrives this weekend for Christmas. I need a break, LOL!!!!

About 28 outside right now and cloudy..dreary.
Their talking freezing rain tonight (hopefully not too much) were still recovering from the wind storm and there are people still without power....and those poor line repair men, working 16 hour shifts and now ice...good grief.

so far I have washed 2 loads, still need to hang them
need to make a test run on a cake (can send with hubby to work tommorrow)
Off to work 11-4 today
need to clean up the patio (a mess after the wind)
make dinner (meatloaf I think)

Not looking forward to work....It's just getting crazy with all the kids and stressed mommies.

I have been soooo busy today. This is the longest I've sat down since driving the kids to school this morning. As soon as dh left for work, I got to baking.

I made:
~chocolate chip coffee biscotti
~2 batches microwave divinity (one failure, one success :laugh: )
~gumdrop cookies

Then I cleaned up the kitchen, ran the dishwasher, washed the extra dishes, & got a shower. After my shower I dragged out all the stuff we bought this weekend (the inlaws gave us $$ to buy what the kids wanted because we aren't going down there this Christmas) and wrapped it all. I only have dh's stuff to wrap, but I can wrap that stuff after I pick up the kids. For which I have to leave in 10 minutes. Ugh!

This afternoon I need to:
~wash, dry, fold, put away laundry
~wrap dh's gifts
~vacuum the downstairs
