Thank you all for the warm welcome. You guys are awesome!
HollyJolly, I'm embarrassed to say that I have not really made any significant Christmas plans yet.
My work schedule has been overwhelming. I think we are going to try to have a Christmas party for family and friends at our house shortly after Thanksgiving, but so far it's just in the hopeful stage. Other than that, I'm trying to squirrel away a little extra cash each week into my Christmas club account so that we can enjoy the holiday season guilt free.
Anyway, I am glad to have joined here. I'll be around a bit more soon, when my work schedule eases up... I HOPE it eases up! lol
