Years ago my brother-in-law started calling the day before Christmas Eve, Christmas Adam….because Adam came before Eve. haha.

So, today is Christmas Adam and I’m scurrying around with my to-do lists and unwrapped presents and a pile of laundry that doesn’t appear to be getting smaller no matter how many loads I do!

I got a very exciting phone call a few hours ago, as I was waxing my chin, lip, under my chin, basically half my face eyebrows. It was my mother-in-law and she was calling to see if she could pick up the boys and take them for the rest of the day and into the evening….um, YES!!! I think I heard angels singing as I began to realize how much I’d be able to get done in a short amount of time if my house was EMPTY! Oh how nice it will be to leave town tomorrow and know that my house will be clean and there won’t be ANY piles of laundry waiting for me when I get back. I think Josh and I may even have to plan a little date night tonight. I’m SO excited!

I don’t have a clue what we’ll do, but it will be fun and relaxing no matter what it is! Unfortunately, if we decide to actually GO somewhere, we will be spending a lot of time in the car because traffic at night is INSANE right now with less than 48 hours left to shop!

Are you familiar with Dave Ramsey? He has a show on the Fox Business Channel and is the author and creator of the Total Money Makeover, where he encourages readers to get out of debt, pay cash for everything and be a ‘slave to no man’. Anyways, he has challenged his readers/watchers to not create New Year’s resolutions, but rather create a list of goals for the coming year. Attainable, beneficial goals in the following areas: career, financial, spiritual, intellectual, physical, and family. Over the next week, I’m going to create my goals for each of those catagories and I will post them on New Year’s Day.

At breakfast this morning, Owen said (with a mouthful of eggs and grits) “happy kwimmus (Christmas) Mommy!” He’s so darn cute.

Happy Kwimmus everyone!
Less that 48 hours until Christmas!!
