This week, the Grand Holiday Plan tackles the living room and delves deeper into holiday preparation with a family values checklist and gift ideas. I have to tell you that I fell behind this week on the deep-cleaning part of this plan, but just being able to check some of these holiday preparations off of my list helps me feel like I am already ahead of the game. Here is what I have accomplished this week:
- Cleaned and took inventories of our two freezers
- Evaluated our family’s values and holiday expectations with Dave
- Printed Christmas card addresses to review and update
- Started brainstorming gift ideas for family members & neighbors
Next week, it’s on to cleaning our foyer and baking some holiday goodies and an extra meal for our freezer. Hopefully I will be able to spend a little more time catching up on our living room cleaning, too. And if you are interested in participating in the Grand Holiday Plan, jump right in…if you’re a little behind, that’s okay. The plan is not as overwhelming as I thought it would be before I started.
