Slip, slip, slippin' away!

Time, that is. We have three days left (counting today) till we take off for Florida...and I'm NOWHERE near ready. Nothing new, I do tend to be a last-minute person...I just work better that way. However, this time, I'm scaring myself.

At least now the wrapping paper is finally dug out of the storage room so I can start wrapping. Yes, I said START. Not a single gift wrapped. Nothing mailed. Nothing packed. My groceries (for THIS week) still aren't bought, and it's Friday! (How'd that work out?) But the tree...is finally decorated! Why does that not feel like a victory? Maybe because my to-do list is longer than my got-it-done list? I still don't have our suitcases out ready to be packed (another on Pete's list), so I guess I'll resort to stacks of stuff on the beds for the moment.

Looks like I'll have to get the warmer-weather clothes back out, because the forecast for the panhandle is nearing 80 degrees on Christmas Day! For the record, that's one of the reasons I don't like Florida!

I'll be on a blogging hiatus during our trip, as I'm sure there's just going to be too much to be done to sit in front of a computer! I wish each and every one of you a blessed Christmas, and hope that you all have a wonderfully peaceful week.

Have a great trip! I am thrilled that we finally don't have to travel much more than 2 hours for Christmas any more. That was a chore to pack up all the kids and drive and drive and drive, only to have to pack twice as much and drive back home.

Where are you going in Florida? I was raised there. Mom and my brother and few relatives are still in the Sunshine State.
I grew up in Port Charlotte (that's in the southwest side in case you had never heard of that area.

An 80 degree Christmas...boy do I remember those! Actually one Christmas eve it got so cold that it did snow a few flakes which was neat to see, but then the next day it was like 75 or something...ugh...lol.

Have fun dear one!
