What still needs to get done before the holidays?

  1. 2 My school gets out Wednesday at 1pm. My two kids get out Friday at 3pm. I need to use those two days I am off and they are on school to finish wrapping everything and sorting it for Hanukkah and Christmas (we celebrate both). Thankfully we eat out Christmas Eve, but Christmas Day I am cooking so I still need to menu plan and shop for that, dog needs to go to the groomer, one last parent/teacher conference, and still buy gifts for a party we are going to on the 27th...

    Things at work have been crazy because SO MANY KIDS are out sick. We've had a run of the stomach bug, pneumonia and another virus that causes sore throat, fever and cough that isn't strep and is taking like 4 days to pass. I just wanna mae it through Wednesday here...

    Tomorrow is our last day before break and I still have a TON to do! I still have a few odds and ends to pick up for gifts, including stocking stuffers. We still need to make some Christmas cookies and I need to finish wrapping gifts. I was doing so well, early on and then BAM! Christmas is here and I'm not ready! I'm thankful I will have a few days before to get everything done!

    We get out Thursday and I also picked up four hours that evening at the hospital. I took Wednesday off to chaperone a field trip at my daughter's school so I'll try to get some stuff done after school before I pick her up.

    I still need to buy 2 presents AND all my stocking stuffers, finish wrapping gifts and plan food for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We're bringing a vegetable side dish for Eve and I'm making a French toast bake for Day for brunch. We just baked a bajillion cookies and did a cookie exchange this weekend.

    All of the presents from Santa are wrapped, but I still need to wrap my outgoing gifts. My husband works overnight Wednesday and Thursday, so I'll get everything finished up then, hopefully! My amazing in-laws (we live a few houses away) make brunch on Christmas and a big dinner late in the day, so I'll make a side-dish, but other than that, Christmas is pretty low key for us!

    A couple of cards (need addresses), a few kids gifts (will see friends kids on Christmas eve),

    Lots of homemade Baileys!!!

    Food shopping. We did our family Christmas last week, so I'm home for the first time in years! I hope it snows like crazy!!!! One last trip to the post office and maybe some cookies.

    I'm sure I will think of 10 more things!!!

    I still have to do all my Christmas shopping (I know, I know).

    But I've been distracted. My hubbie and I are adopting 4 month old kitten sisters today - Christmas comes early for us both .

    First batch of Baileys done! Sent my son to the post office, need to make one delivery today and then food shopping. There is a light at the end of the tunnel!

    Wishing all my nurse colleagues a restful and happy holiday season!!!

    Well, my battery in my car needed to be replaced on Monday and now my car keeps stalling on me at random times. So I get a new car battery for Christmas and a trip to the dealership to figure out why my car is stalling. Ho ho ho.

    I have a few more presents to pick up for my December 18 birthday girl (she has a short wish list this year and we gave her some stuff for her birthday so now we need more Christmas presents for her). I need to bake stuff, and help my mom with whatever she needs for Christmas dinner. So not a ton left to do, but man I'm having a hard time with stuff for the December 18 kid.

    I have a December 23rd kid, luckily, she's still little and only requested a trip to Build-A-Bear for her birthday!
