Feeling like Christmas

I'm pretty excited because today is the last day of school. Yes I agreed to work some days over my break to make some extra money but I still have a big chunk of time off. And I'm feeling pretty good and starting to feel Christmas-y.

It's snowed today! It looks so pretty. X-Ray Girl and I have plans to do Christmas shopping tomorrow. If I can spring Princess from Alcatraz we're going to Daddy-O's Christmas Cantata and to drive around and look at Christmas lights on Sunday. I want to do some baking. I have a stack of books to read. I have a few craft like projects I want to work on: hats, quilts, blankets, scrapbooks.

I'm excited to shop. I have some ideas of gifts for people and I'm looking forward to wrapping presents. I have some Christmas movies to watch; I want to try and reduce that "not watched" list. I'm going to hang out with Curly and with Lilith. I want to take pictures. I want to catch up on my blog reading.

I realize there's a lot of things to do on this list but I'm looking at them as thing I want to do not as a true "to do" list. I'm going to do some serious relaxing and just stuff I want. Selfish, maybe, but I can live with that.

I even have all my favorite jeans and red shirts clean so I'll even look Christmas-y!

Full of cheer,

And please vote for me for Best Blog. Today is the last day for round 4 and I'm just lagging about 14 votes behind as being one of the top 5! And thanks to all those who've voted for me already!

I'm a definite follower now but have a question - how in the blazes do I vote for you at Blog Guidebook? I've looked and looked and can't find where to actually vote besides clicking the vote button!

Already voted for you and wish I could vote again. I just hope that all the things you want to do are not all things that have to be done before Christmas day.

I just cast my vote! (And I would have voted from school too, but I didn't get any blog time today.)

Today was our last day too, and it didn't really feel like it. It will sure feel like it Monday morning, when I DON'T have to get up and go to school. Yay for Christmas Break!

Wish we had some snow here! It's in the 60's in SW GA. Sounds like you have a ton of fun stuff planned. Enjoy every minute of shopping, movie watching and visiting.
Merry Christmas!
