So Much to Do!

I just had to come down with some sort of cold didn't I? I ended up calling in to work on Black Friday! Even more of a bummer was I didn't get to go shopping at all. I still haven't left the house (well only to go through the drive-through for food tonight). I've been at home in my "jammies" (it's what my dad always refers to them as). I feel I'm starting to get over this cold thing but I've got to get cleaning my house! I have this constant obsession with cleaning. I feel like there's always something hanging over my head unless the house is immaculate. So with only one day of my weekend not totally consumed by my bad cold I've got quite the "To Do" list.

- clean up the kitchen
- dust and vacuum
- wash bed sheets
- iron
- clean bathrooms
- laundry
- order our Christmas cards and finalize our list (I'll post about that later)

**If I'm ambitious enough, I'll clean up my craft area downstairs in the basement, but I'm no Katie (God love that ambitious girl!!)

I am sorry you haven't been feeling well. I hope you get better very soon. I hear you about the house cleaning.. I am very picky about my house, too!!!

Glad you're feeling a little bit better! Take it easy in your "jammies." Love the Charlie Brown Christmas song.

Hi Risa, So happy you stopped by my new blog. Come back anytime! You are so pretty! Look at that gorgeous picture of you. I can so relate to what you are saying. I just don't "feel" right if the house is messy or unorganized in any way. So needless to say today is house cleaning day. LOL! I hope you feel better soon. ~Take Care, Melissa :)

Thanks for visiting me! I hope you're feeling better, The picture of you at the top is just beautiful!

You asked about the garland.... I used little nails underneath and tied the greenerey around them. I know most people don't like to make holes in the mantle, but since they are underneath you can't see the holes after Christmas. I hope this helps! I need to go check out the rest of your blog!
