Six weeks and counting…

Written by Martha on November 22nd, 2011

We are entering that transition from Fall to Winter; Halloween/Thanksgiving to Christmas.

Of course, retail stores, radio stations, and television commercials feature a conglomeration of every possible seasonal or holiday advantage.

My top 10 suggestions for the next couple of weeks to keep it fun instead of hectic:

  • Make a lunch date and invest your time with a good friend.
  • Change out your fire alarm batteries now and on Mother’s Day (two “thank you” holidays)
  • Buy an orange 22 quart plastic tote to store the fall décor you take down.
  • Update your holiday card address list. Mail cards early.
  • Choose a craft or baking activity to share with the children in your life.
  • Order a turkey or spiral ham rather than cook on the BIG day.
  • Purchase some toys to donate to a shelter, Toys for Tots, or Angel Tree.
  • Call someone you haven’t heard from in a long time.
  • Rent a couple of movies for an In-House movie night with popcorn.
  • Buy a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle to put together during family visits.

Life is too short to stress yourself out by building unrealistic expectations into one or two days of the year.

With you in keeping it S-I-M-P-L-E!
