    *^*Take Care of Yourself Tuesday -- Holiday Shopping*^*

    Somehow I think we talked about holiday shopping before. Maybe before Thanksgiving? How is your holiday shopping coming along? For me I have all the kids done, except for stocking stuffers. I have to get my parents and my siblings and of course my SO. Otherwise the biggest part of my shopping is done, all the kids in the family!

    While you are busy, baking, shopping, decorating for the holidays are you remembering to take care of yourself? What did you do or have you planned for this week to take care of yourself? I am thinking of getting a manicure and a pedicure. We'll see though it's been a while and I sure could use one!

    Take care of yourselves everyone!

    I just really started my shopping last night and got a little bit more done today. Since Jonathan's seizures have returned and the fact that he has muscular dystrophy means I can't leave him for very long periods of time. I was pretty stressed about it all until today, I'll get it done I always do. I have to remember that it is really not about the presents anyway. It's about the gift we were given, Jesus leaving his home in heaven to come and dwell among us fallen human beings. It's that gift that gives me hope.

    Hi Emma,

    My shopping is Done! :) I cut my Own fingernails & toenails, this week. So I got my manicure/pedicure done, too. :) Never had the 'pleasure' of someone else doing that for me. :)

    So, guess cooking starts next week. :) Cookies & More cookies. :) And I Leave the pies to the Hubby. :)

    Shame we haven't got enough PPL to have a 'present swap' amongst us, here in Epland, this Yr. Maybe Next YR? :)

    Thanks for Caring/sharing. :) Merry Christmas!

    Love Candi

    My stress buster is a nap. As my friend said: " A nap is a brief vacation!"
