Good morning!  I got nothing accomplished yesterday because I got roped into staying to help serve and break down Teacher Appreciation lunch at school - I was there from 8-5.  Ugh.

 

-coffee

-get DS16 off to school for his last final

-school with DS13 (logic test and then we are done)

-finalize Christmas dinner, grocery list, possible trip to Publix

-my parents come around 1 and will stay for dinner

-figure out what to buy my parents, inlaws, and my niece for Christmas

-buy last gifts?

-get Christmas cards addressed and in the mail (hopefully before the mailman gets here at 10ish)

-dinner:  Egg Roll in a Bowl

-read/relax

 

ETA:  wow, I'm really slacking off here....

Car has to go to mechanic. I am so glad I dropped it off yesterday instead of having to go in early this morning.

 

Make meringue mushrooms for Christmas log cake. Make marzipan holly leaves for same. I have a teeny fondant rolling pin, an assortment of holly leaf shaped cutters, and powdered food coloring..

 

Bake some of each cookie (dough made yesterday) for dd's history class -- not too much of a burden, as only three students and teacher.

 

Wrap presents.

Your cake sounds like it will be gorgeous! Post a pic if you get the chance.  :)

Super-quick grocery run
Last gift shopping trip - 2 things, nearby

Good morning! We woke up to snow and the added luxury of no morning practice. It is still snowing out there, so we may get snow that sticks around for more than a day. We are doing stockings today (belated St. Nicholas Day-dd2 and I were gone and the college kids have made out like bandits since I sent them a St. Nicholas box)

So dh and I were up early to fill stockings-goodness knows when the kids will get up.

 

To do:

stockings and breakfast

weekly chore list

avoid dh working from home with a man cold. This is hard in the tiny house

read a little

christmas shopping with dd1 (maybe-check the roads later)

jen things if there is physical and mental space

one more letter (wrote 3 yesterday)

ds3 to tennis 

girls to practice

Dinner of some kind

 

Have a great day!

Go to the Y.

Buy enough groceries to last through the 26th.

Pharmacy run.

Human care done "good enough".  Beating the teens to the shower is becoming harder and harder these days and once I miss my shower window I just have to suck it up and dress so that I can get on with my day. 

 

Pet care done

 

Medical care done

 

Dishwasher rebooted.

 

Sanding all done

 

Talked to my soon-to-be 93 year old mom.

Talked to my eldest sis

Figure out dinner. Plan A will not work b/c I lack ingredients, and will not go back out to the store. 

Call mom.

Update budget with today's purchases.

 

Pie baked

Checked hours for the seafood store for Saturday.

Mopped the kitchen.

Wrapped a gift.

 

 

Just has a bit of chocolate and some Lady Grey hot tea, and put my feet up. Almost dark here and I am almost out of energy.
