I woke up this morning to the house full of Christmas boxes.  ARGH!!   Yesterday was a pretty good day.   I cleaned and did laundry in the morning.  At about 1:00 we left and went to the library, CVS, Target and Aldi.   Once home I made some marinated pork chops, baked pots and veggie.   We had a nice supper and then we watched How the Grinch Stoled Christmas.   I love the remake of that with Jim Carrey.  When the movie was done Tommy and I were heading to bed.   Just then Josh came home and said “let’s get the tree up!”  So we stayed up and took all the Christmas stuff out of the attic and set up the tree.   Josh’s girlfriend was also over to help with it.   We went to bed after setting up the tree and planned on decorating it today!

Today….hubby wasn’t feeling well and didn’t want to go to church.  He is still sleeping right now.  I am doing laundry and have supper started in the crockpot!  I have done a load of laundry and will shower and get ready for our day in a bit.   I will be cleaning and decorating for Christmas today.  At 2:00 we have tickets to take Tommy to a play, The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe.  I hope Tommy likes it.  We have not taken him to a play before, but we love to go.  

I will spend some time today planning for next week as well.  I have my menu for he week done.  We are working very hard to eat everything in our freezer.  It is almost empty, I probably have about one more week of food in there.
