The beginning half of my day...

First, because my neighbor's child was sick-I took Whitney to school this morning-ofcourse i found this out five minutes before school started when whitney came running home from their house to explain this to me. So I threw on more decent clothes on the children and strapped them in the van in record timing. After dropping her off with a note explaining her tardiness, I started my quest. Joe needs a scout shirt for his pack meeting on thursday night-because he is presenting the arrow of light award to one of his scouts and everyone should be in uniform. Okay-so I scoured three thrift stores-then continued on to D.I. -the most likely place to have one and found they were closed due to computer issues. I then went to the dollar store and spent $4 total on decorations. Came home-made lunch, put Brooke down for a nap, and started fixing up my house. By two o'clock my house was clean and decorated more in christmas cheer and I had a roast cooking away. I have to say that i was pretty impressed with myself-did i mention that i also did some laundry too?

Just one of todays' projects: The stockings are hung:

Way to go momma! Isn't a great feeling to get so much done in so little time. Doesn't happen too often for me, but when it does it's great. You were busy.
