I don't know if anyone already mentioned this since I have not finished reading the post but I have bought boxes of Christmas cards at thrift stores before that have been opened but of course not written in. You are able to donate unused cards at thrift stores and probably Goodwill. I have seen them in Ziploc baggies too for sale and bought them. If they are in good shape and if they are not in a box you can donate them in a Ziploc baggie.

You could also get involved in some Christmas card exchange with the military or some other organization. Just a thought!

I forgot to mention a few days ago I saw the coca cola advert! We were all super excited when it came on as it has always been a big sign of the season!

How can it be Thursday already! My Christmas decorations are coming down from the loft on Saturday and I will probably start putting out a few things each day starting with the small things.

Well I should get back to things , have a magical day everyone!
I have a long way to go with the shopping too Festive Spirit. Being so busy with the family and trying to keep up with the household has not left me a lot of time to be by myself to get some shopping done!
Have fun decorating, I hope you have a great day!

I hope y'all have a great day!
I'm happy you had a great time!!!

Good morning!
I am heading out as soon as I finish my cup of coffee. I straightened up the house, started laundry, walked the dogs and got dinner started in the slow cooker so far. So now I can get out of here for a little while and try to do some Christmas shopping. I feel like I am really behind this year. I am going to try and do a little something every day, either online or in the stores. I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!!!

The grandchildren are here so I need to tend to them.

Did I ever mention that being able to watch my grandchildren as my full time job is very rewarding? My daughter and son-in-law has mentioned they could enroll them in daycare if it is too much for me but I am so happy to get to spend the time with them and watch them grow! I love it and honored to have this job! The kids love being here too, we have a lot of fun! I also have my part time job too at the feed store. The hours are perfect in both areas!

I didn't have time to catch up on the post so I will try to check back later. You all have a Merry Day!

Good morning everyone!

Normally, I would be (happily) teaching at this time, but I didn't receive a call to supply today. Oh well. Having a day off isn't bad, especially when my dad is visiting for the next couple days. No plans for the day. We're nearly finished our Christmas decorating in the apartment. We just need to make a few purchased. I think this morning will be spent with a little bit of shopping.

At least all this shopping will give me the opportunity to take some photos of Christmas decorations in the mall. I haven't been in more than a month, so it will be very exciting to see!

Well, time to get ready and head out in a bit. Have a great Thursday, everyone. It's the Christmas Season. Let's continue to enjoy it to the fullest!

Merry Christmas!
