I have my ornaments. I just need to find a box I can ship them in and get them to the post office.  I haven't really gotten started on SS, other than carrying the printed list around with me :).

Shopping was started today! @Reinholt1 is your mom still allowed to have coffee cakes because I wanted to send her some with her Christmas card?

Good morning from Sunny FL.

 

 

Just kidding. Today’s a collllllld day bbuuurrrr. I love the cold so it’s fine, it makes me get into to holiday spirit even more.....Ok so, today I am making a list of  notes from my SS & OE info. I will be heading out town since it’s my day off, & & & I am soooo exited to get my shopping done. I think I’ll put on Christmas music in the car to really get things started LOL. I am that jolly person who loves ALL things Christmas. I literally just woke up like 40 mins ago and I thought hhmmm, let me go have a look at our SS updates. And BOOM BoPeep sent out all the info I needed. Thank you Bopeep ! I truly appreciate your hard work. Im going to my office (it’s across my bedroom lol.) turn on the Christmas music (Alexa plays the best music selection.) and get my notes ready for today YAY  :hearthrob  :holiday15  :holiday03  :holiday04  :holiday07

Thank you 🙏 All is healing as it should. I had to have a skin graft so it’s a slow process. On the plus side, light duty gives me more time to watch Christmas movies 😀

I received my SS gift today! What a surprise after a rough week at work. I had a feeling the box was from my SS so I peeked enough to confirm!  I know the “theme” but not what’s in it and I will wait until my birthday (12/15) to open it fully!  Thank you, thank you thank you SS!

About half done (I think) with my SS shopping now. Planning on finishing the rest throughout this week. Can’t wait to pull it all together and get it on its way!

For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

 

NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:

Sorry,  Been spending a lot of time at mom's new placement.  Trying to help her adjust.  She is starting to receive cards (yay) and a box arrived with her name.   Mom's birthday is Saturday so I will give them to her then.  It will be a good way to launch the holiday season.  Thank you all!
