Today, was a cool, cloudy fall like day. The cooler weather helps me think ahead about all the decadent food, warm clothes, and time with family and friends that lie ahead. Christmas is an amazing time of year, and I'm hoping this year I won't be so frazzled that I miss it.
So, today I printed out my Christmas card spreadsheet. I'm certainly not ready to look at it yet, but just printing it out and putting it in my special Christmas envelope makes me feel like I've done something. It's all about breaking the process down into small, baby steps.
If you don't have your Christmas card list on a spreadsheet, I highly recommend taking the time to put in all the information. It saves so much time in the long run. As much as people move and situations change, it's so much easier to update on the computer. I also don't have to hunt for my address book that's been lost for a few years.
I'm also thinking about all those little gifts that I forget to buy. I have some ideas on how to prepare those in upcoming posts.
98 days to go!
