I have LOTS to do today!  These green tubs are filled with all my Christmas decorations.  My strategy is all plotted out.  Between today and Monday, I'll empty them and deck my halls (decorate my house) in order to join the 2009 very much anticipated Christmas Tour of Homes!

(Oops, I just noticed that the typing on the Nut Crackers label is a little high. Mr. Monk would have to stop everything and change it.  Not me.  I'm only a little neurotic.)  By now, 93.5% of readers will have hit escape, but I'll continue today's blog for the remaining 6.5% of you.  

Here's my 3-Step Plan to maximize my efficiency... 1) Remove every single non-Christmas decor object in the six target areas of my house.  2) Start spreading Christmas magic here and there.  I can't remember from one year to the next where things go and have to start from creative scratch every single time!  3) I don't even know what #3 could or should be, so better quit talking and just get busy since time is running out! 

All I do know is this...  IF I'm successful in emptying all 15 tubs, and IF I don't run out of steam, and IF everything finds a place, and IF I get all my bows made, I'll be ready to take photos by Sunday evening... Well, perhaps Monday... Tuesday at the absolute latest... Because house cleaner gal is coming on Wednesday... Stamp Club is here on Thursday... Three stamping events here on Friday... Christmas Luncheon on Saturday...  What. Was. I. Thinking?

No wonder your daughter could stand on her feet all day yesterday making the best Thanksgiving dinner in town! If I get back for Christmas, I HAVE to see what you've done. Have fun today! Jeanette
