Status Update

On Christmas Plans:
  • The decision about the tree has not yet been made, but we're going shopping this afternoon just to look.
  • Plans for family dinner are pretty much secure. We will do appetizers and presents in the afternoon at our place while the turkey roasts, and then we'll march the food across the alley to MB's house to eat it, because he has the bigger dining room table. We have bought the bird; we just need odds and ends of ingredients to finish it off.
  • House cleaning and decorating is on the list for this weekend, as we're having friends over for dinner on Sunday night and would like to have the house all gussied up in time for them.
  • Shopping... aie aie aie. I've got a few things, but I'm nowhere near done. Oh well.
  • The Gingerbread house kit has been purchased but we haven't put it together yet.
In other news, we did actually get our paint touch-ups done last weekend, a project that we've been NOT doing for the better part of two years. Hurray! This is the first on a list of a projects we want to get done around the house before we put the house on the market. We have more painting to do, in the bathroom and the basement, and some new lino that needs to be put down on the stairs and in the bathroom. I think that we will also replace the sink in the bathroom with a slightly bigger model.

And so it goes!

Ditto for me on the shopping! We still haven't put up our tree either, but it's a fake one. What did you and WH decide about the tree??

I love internet shopping!
