It’s day 2 of the Challenge for me. Number 1 is going well so far. It’s the first weekend of the holiday season. I have done a great job in not jumping ahead to the next holiday and enjoying all this week has to offer. I am also doing pretty good at not worrying about making the holidays PERFECT. But instead, enjoying the moments leading up to the big meals and the get togethers.
Number 2 on the list is Plan so you won’t be running around like a crazy lady. Today, I sent my wonderful mom the ingredients for the pie I will be making Thursday. Plan for Thanksgiving, Check!
I started planning for Christmas in September. I have to for several reasons. The main one is that we our family is spread out everywhere. The sooner I can put the gift ideas together, the lighter the load is on me and my family when the holidays get closer.
Hubby’s family. CHECK! I have already shipped all but a few gifts to his parents’ home. We will go there just before Christmas. This way, everything is already there under the tree, waiting for our arrival.
A plan I am good at. Can you tell I my over plan? Yep. Just a little. So part of this year’s plan is to slow down, enjoy the moments, and not worry if there is something I forgot or didn’t do. If it isn’t perfect, it is OK.
