    What's the status...?

    How are you doing on your Christmas preps? Here's my status:

    Cards - addressed, just need to affix stamps. Cards to Europe sent yesterday

    Packages - mailed yesterday to out of town relatives

    Newsletter - written, typed, need to copy and add to cards

    Decorating - Done, need to take all boxes down to the basement

    Shopping - Done

    Wrapping - Done, except for the 4 gifts on order

    Cooking - Menus done for Christmas Eve and Day. Need to order seafood, grocery shop and cook

    Baking - Fruitcake done, need to do several batches of cookies

    Entertainment - been watching Christmas movies and listening to CD's. No special events to attend this year

    How are you doing? I think it helps to recognize how much you've gotten done.

    You seem to be in good shape Tink. I like to get almost everything done by the 10th so I can just relax and enjoy (and cook!) Bought my stamps today and picked up some ingredients for cookies.

    I don't have to do all those things you ladies do, thank goodness. I order gifts online, which I am almost finished buying, have them sent to my sisters, then I will wrap them after we go up there. She even offered to wrap them but she is very busy and has her own presents to wrap, so not sure if I will take her up on it
