Today Will Be A Busy Day

I have been up since 5 AM getting some last minute gift wrapping done.  I sent my husband to the store for a few last minute items, he is not usually a morning person but today he is managing :)

The house has been spot cleaned, I mopped all the tile floors throughout the house last night and vacuumed the dog hair off the couches. (English Bull Dogs shed like crazy!)  The kitchen is next with just a few dishes to do.

Dinner is ordered from Olive Garden and will be picked up at 2PM.  Meanwhile my husband will drive to Orlando( 45 min away) to pick up mom so she can celebrate Christmas with all that show up today.  Oh.. on on the way back from picking up mom, they will have to pick up the food too.

Meanwhile, I will have my grandson and we are going shopping for his parents.  do you think a 3 1/2 year old can keep a secret?  I don't know but we are going to try.

Earlier this morning I updated all of my accounts on Mint.com.  I like it because I can quickly look and see all of my account balances and if there are any changes.  There for a while, (about the last six months) I had no idea of what was in our retirement accounts.  Completely clueless.  But now I have moved old 401ks and Roths to Vanguard.com and I am starting to feel more in control of things.

We are as ready as we can be for today.  Hope you all have a great Saturday!
