    Here's what I hope to do this week:

    • Keep working on gift list.
    • Keep working on writing out Christmas cards. Finished addressing and stamping cards.
    • Work on making some gifts. Got one done!
    • Wrap online gift orders that get delivered this week. Never got to this.
    What's on your list to do this week?

    This week I need to continue working on the gifts I'm making, make my Christmas cards, buy some wrapping paper,and I'm still working on putting things away to make room for my decorations. I almost put up my outdoor Christmas lights yesterday, as it was pretty mild. But I didn't get to it. Chance of snow flurries next weekend.

    Last week I got a number of packages delivered but never got to wrapping them. My bedroom is beginning to look like a warehouse with stacked boxes. :rolleyes: Otherwise, it was a productive week.

    sweetpumkinpye - Me too! I've seen a couple lit Christmas trees in houses near me but I haven't yet seen outdoor lights. They'll be up soon though. :)

    I have a feeling that is our bedroom will look by this weekend with all the orders I have placed starting to trickle in.

    I have a few of DH's gifts stuffed into my side of the closet and more of his stuff coming in this week. I may have to find a couple more hiding spots cause I think if i try to stuff another thing in there its all going spring out towards me ... think of the springing snake in the can prank :D ... humm Maybe I can use DS closet shelf ... he doesn't really use it. I know once I am done black friday shopping I don't think I will have any floor space left in our bedroom except for a path way to the bed :eek:

    Minta, I can just imagine gifts springing everywhere LOL. What a great position to be in, it sounds like DH is in for a great morning opening gifts.
