Remember last week when I showed you all the Christmas-related stuff I needed to get done?
Well, I did it!
Ok, most of it!
The two big bags are presents that I mailed off yesterday. The red basket holds my kids' teacher gifts (teachers, helpers, school director) which we distributed yesterday as well. The other two white bags are the kids' class stocking stuffers for their classmates plus they each have to take a wrapped book for a book exchange today. AND my daughter had to take a present to her dance class last night for their Christmas party!
Will it ever end?!
Jenna, this one is for you! Just wanted you to know that "Lion" is clean and safe with us, but he is going to live in my car so I can bring him home some time in the next 2 weeks!
Yes, I know this pile beside my guest bed does not look any better than last week! However, the items in the picture really have changed. I promise! Just a few things are left from last week plus all the wrapping supplies I stuck there quickly!
See! This is my closet where all the wrapped presents and stocking stuffers are safely housed.
I bet you are wondering why I took this picture. See that rectangle-shaped impression on my carpet. Well, in order to put all this in my closet, I actually had to clean it, including a basket of laundry that had been there A.LONG.TIME! So long, it was almost like buying new clothes!
This week's tackle before we start our Christmas celebrations?
It was such a wonderful idea as I was training my children to remove their shoes upon entering the house.
You did notice I said children and not husband!
Unfortunately, this basket requires its own day on the cleaning schedule!
