Tuesday's Short List

Today is a day of off from work.  But as you know, there is always work to be done around the house. I tell ya, housework is endless and some of the times it is thankless.  But it has to be done.

Most of my Christmas shopping is completed.  Yesterday I purchased one hour photo session for my grown children and their families.  The photographer met me at work to give the the beautifully personalized gift certificates.  For $75.00 each family will get a one hour photo session at a location of their choice.

  They will also get two 8 x 10's or an 11 x 14 professional print.  And they can go on the photographer's website and select 5 Jpegs images that they can print themselves or at the drug store.  The bonus is that I will get a free 8 x 10 from  each family's session (of my choosing).  I think it is a pretty good deal!   If you are in Central Florida and are interested, let me know!  I will pass information along to ya!

I purchased a Keruig Coffee Pot for my mom for Christmas from Amazon.  Yes, these are quite expensive but it is what she wants AND I had just about enough SwagBucks to cover the purchase.     Now I am hoping like heck it will be here in time for Christmas!!

Today's list of things to do includes:

Housework:  Put up Laundry, clean out fridge, and wash the bull dog (Princess).

Christmas:  Wrap presents and see what else needs to be bought.

 eBay:         Put up previously listed eBay items in storage shed.    Early December, business was    pretty good, but now it has slowed down.  Time to clean, organized and get ready for next year.

Family:    Later this evening I will be meeting my son to give him and his wife their photo certificate early.  They have kids home from college and now would be a great time for them to get their photos done.  My son lives about an hour away, so we meet about half way.

Baking:  Sometime today I have to make an Ooey Gooey Butter Cake for my husband's pot luck tomorrow.  Easy to do and great tasting!

Me:   Relax this evening and watch White Christmas on DVR.

I asked for a photo of my kids together for Xmas this year. ;-)

Haven't had one done in ages and now only the youngest gets the school photo done.

My daughter told me we need to make an Ooey Gooey about 15 mins. ago.....you must have heard her, huh?lol

Wow, what a great idea with these photo sessions! I'd be very happy if I got a present like that! And so many great memories after some years in the future :) Good luck with your to-do-list!
