22 – Looking Ahead

I’m going to use this one to keep track of the things I need to finish between now and the next 22nd…

Wow, totally hosed on the list…no one’s surprised, right?

Christmas is not one of my favorite holidays, so I tend to ignore it until the last minute.  MOST of my shopping is done.  I’ll probably be making all of my goodies on Christmas Eve (with the Widget, I hope).  I’ve mostly decided on the menu, but can’t shop until TOMORROW to get it all *sigh*

Oh well, onward!

Things that must be done by next 22nd…
