Thanksgiving Plans

Mr. T has Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday off. I have Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday off (and will probably get to leave work early on Wednesday). So, yeah – barely any overlap. So it goes… We’re working on an Indiegogo campaign for the gallery (I’ll post more soon), so Mr. T should be spending Tuesday shooting the video for that. Wednesday he’s going to rent a carpet cleaner and we’re going to clean all the carpet in the house. Can I tell you that I am so. excited. about this?! I told him he can clean all the rest of the carpet in the house (I’m nice like that), but he needs to save at least the living room for me. I am going to get so much satisfaction out of cleaning that carpet!! And then…

*drum roll*

We’re going to put the tree up!! I’ve put it up alone every year so far so this year we’re putting it up pre-Thanksgiving (a Mr. T no-no) because I want it to be a group effort, darnit! Ugh, I’m so excited about Christmas!! Mama N gave us her old 7′ tree, so that’s going to replace our tiny little 4′ pre-lit beauty we’ve been using. Of course, we don’t heave nearly enough decorations to cover it, and I don’t want to go out and spend $$$ to fill it this year. So we’re going to make due with a bare-bones tree (maybe DIY ornaments?!) and the day after Christmas we’re going to go pick up a bunch of sale stuff. 8}

Thursday is the only day we both have off…and I’m not sure what we’re going to do. I know mentioned before that we might have a Thanksgiving for Two sort of year… It’s not looking like that’s going to happen. Which is totally cool! We have dinner alone all the time, and Thanksgiving is a time for family. We’re probably going to have lunch with Grandmas Wilson and dinner with my sister’s in-laws. My brother-in-law is taking their oldest son camping or some such nonsense (it’s too cold for that noise!) so she might appreciate the company.

I have Friday off and maybe (hopefully) will get work done in the closet/bedroom. ONE DAY I WILL FINISH A PROJECT. Saturday I’m going to my hometown for Thanksgiving with my family and a birthday party for my nephew. I’ll stay over Saturday night and come back at some point on Sunday. One of the only Sundays all year I would be able to attend a service and I’m going to be out of town!! *shakes fist at sky*

I’m so excited that it’s finally the holiday season!

  1. Origami anything and these stars/snowflakes are great and cheap tree space fillers. Just get some pretty origami paper (like $5?). So budget friendly…

    • Thanks for the tip! I’m scouring the web for ornament DIYs, but definitely have to be aware of not spending more on DIY than I would’ve if I’d just bought ornaments in the first place! :)

Tell me how you REALLY feel:
