I know it’s early… but I’m a planner. So Christmas is on my mind. And this year in particular I want to get Christmas gifts out of the way early. In December I’ll be doing the whole new baby thing, and I think leaving the house for shopping will be tricky at best.
As much as I love love love Christmas, if I’m not careful it can really take a toll on two things I try hard to protect. My health and my bank account. I always used to leave the Christmas season with a few extra pounds (and bad skin) and a few less dollars… and I know I’m not the only one.
We haven’t even had Thanksgiving yet (but it’s coming here in Canada in just a week, so we’ve ALMOST had Thanksgiving), but I’ve been thinking lately about Christmas traditions. I think it’s because I know this year I’ll have JUST given birth to my first baby, and Christmas will be… different.
~ I’m on a new adventure with the Squishy Baby, figuring out this mommy thing one day at a time. Raising little people while keeping our homes and finances under control might be a challenge, but it’s one I’m excited to tackle… and I want to encourage you to tackle it too.
