Five Things Friday

Such a busy time of year! Every year we always plan to do better at Christmas and have everything pretty much done at least a week before. This year we are slackers! Last minute shopping still to do for our grandson, and then there is the gift wrapping. It is going to be another long evening!

The five things I need to get accomplished for today include:

1. Run by the grocery store and pick up the makings for a salad for tomorrow's Christmas dinner. We are ordering Olive Garden for our dinner so there are no worries for cooking tomorrow. I find it easier to cater then I can enjoy and visit with family and not work myself to seat in the kitchen.

2. Finish the wrapping of presents. Just a few more gifts to wrap and put under the tree. All the paper,tape and scissors are still out on the table so I have no excuses.

3. Tomorrow morning there will be some last minute cleaning and straightening. With 15-17 people coming over tomorrow I am only really concerned with how the bathrooms look. I will really clean after everyone leaves :-)

4. Continue to work on next years budget. I am going to plan to accomplish my debt repayment, savings increase,and mortgage prepayment within the first 6 months of this year. Yes, a lofty goal but I am motivated to do better this year!!

5. Look for a way to streamline my eBay operation. I have stuff in different places around the house, a desk that I do item researches, a shed with eBay stock, a garage with two rolling shelves filled with items, boxes and who knows what else. There needs to be a consolidation and more organization!

How is your Friday looking? Is your plate as full as mine?
