My Twelve Days of Christmas

I hope everyone in the US had a great Thanksgiving. I sure did, and my turkey turned out perfectly so I didn't have to call the Butterball hotline. Yay me! :)

I also didn't get up at the crack of dawn like I usually do to go shopping, but I did venture to Best Buy, Target, and Petsmart around noon. None of the stores were as crazy as I had thought they would be. Everything was actually very calm until I realized "The Other Boleyn Girl" was on sale at Best Buy for $3.99. Of course there were no more in the $3.99 bin, so my sister and I were on a mission to find one. We went around the store (several times) looking for any DVDs that were out of place. Unfortunately, we didn't find one. But, I did receive a very cryptic email from my sister this morning telling me to stop looking for it. Could that mean I am getting it for Christmas? :)

Whew! Now I have to kick it into high gear. I can already feel these next few weeks are going to be crazy busy. I have so many things left to do before Christmas that I am starting to feel a little panicked and overwhelmed. So, to lighten my mood (and keep my sanity), I decided to post my to-do list as my very own rendition of the 12 Days of Christmas.

Here it goes. . .

On the first day of Christmas on my Christmas list will be. . .
~ Tying down my Christmas tree, so Drusilla and Daphne don't pull it onto their heads!

On the second day of Christmas on my Christmas list will be. . .
~ Two packages to mail

On the third day of Christmas on my Christmas list will be. . .
~ Three Christmas stockings to sew

On the fourth day of Christmas on my Christmas list will be. . .
~ Four items to return

On the fifth day of Christmas on my Christmas list will be. . .
~ Five pounds to lose :)

On the sixth day of Christmas on my Christmas list will be. . .
~ Six Christmas presents to buy

On the seventh day of Christmas on my Christmas list will be. . .
~Seven rooms to clean

On the eighth day of Christmas on my Christmas list will be. . .
~Eight felt flowers to make

On the ninth day of Christmas on my Christmas list will be. . .
~ Nine bills to pay

On the tenth day of Christmas on my Christmas list will be. . .
~ Ten paper letters to print

On the eleventh day of Christmas on my Christmas list will be. . .
~ Eleven pompoms to string

On the twelfth day of Christmas on my Christmas list will be. . .
~ Twelve Christmas cards to make

There are a few other to-do items that didn't make this list, so I'll be one very busy girl until the new year.

Here is where I wanted to include my favorite 12 Days of Christmas song (The 12 Things at Christmas that are Such a Pain to Me) but I couldn't find it. So, I decided to include my favorite Christmas song, at least from the '80s.



My favorite part was always when Simon Le Bon sang. I think it still is. I like Boy George's orangey/red hair too. :)
