Tying up loose ends

Now that Thanksgiving is over (BTW D said it was the best meal I have cooked to date :-), it is time for me to turn my attention to getting ready for 2009. Yep, I am kinda just skipping right over Christmas for the most part and working on some self-improvement. I do not have the funds to buy Christmas gifts this year. Instead, I am going to only get my boo boo something and call it a day. If some of my loved ones decide to give me a gift then I will accept it with a smile and a thanks and stop myself from feeling like I need to reciprocate. That's what the giving spirit of Christmas is about. I am also making cards and other handmade items for my BFF's.

So, I have a short list of things to do before New Years:

1. Order my wedding cake.
2. Get measured for a new bra. Yep, I do not have a clue what size I currently am supposed to have.
3. Make crafts to sell at a X-Mas craft show (I gotta do this soon, the show is on the 13th!)
4. Update my Etsy store.
5. Clean my closet.
6. Plan a dinner with my girls :-)

Ok, I think that I have enough to work on in the next 34 days. Time to start working on it.

My beloved little Andy Dawg has blessed our home with fleas. I have gave him three flea baths, washed the contents of his kennel twice, washed his beloved comforter that he always sleeps in twice, and now we are prisoners upstairs in our home while the downstairs is being treated with flea spray for the second time! I don't know what else to do. I am tired of little flea bites. I itch just thinking about it. Gross!
