I love Christmas! All the things you have to do just to prepare for the holiday. You need to purchase gifts, wrap, decorate your home, prepare a meal. Wow, a lot! To get ready and not overwhelm myself. I make a list of everyone I need to buy gifts for. I make a list for all the kids, the adults, another for teachers, bus drivers and coaches and then a separate list for my kids and husband. I honestly make this list in October, just to have since we always have new babies in the family. I don't want to forget anyone!
November first is here. Time to start preparing for Thanksgiving. It will be here before you know it. Normally this time of year we are wondering what to make for dinner, who will host or if your are visiting family. Then of course you have to figure out if you are bringing a dish. Of course, this year will be a lot different than other years, due to social distancing. However, there is still a meal to prepare at home! More than ever, we need to be thankful for everything we have. Things may get worse but we have to be positive and be grateful.
