Joining in on Every Damned Day in December!

I was perusing some blogs today and saw that LindaGHill was taking a challenge from Dylan at Treatment of Visions to blog, as he says, Every Damned Day in December (or EvDaDaDec for short).  I love this idea since my blogging was pretty darned sparse in November and I could use a bit of a challenge (and hopefully some accountability) this month.  My plan was to blog through Christmas anyways with Elf on the Shelf and Advent updates, so this will be a little more of an impetus to do just that and continue through the 31st!

Yesterday I had a reblog, but I will count it as a blog entry – I wrote a paragraph!  🙂

Today is my hubby’s birthday.  I have to work this morning and then again this afternoon/evening, but I arranged with my TAs to take off a bit early from our event tonight and go to dinner and maybe a movie with him.  We haven’t seen a movie in I don’t know how long.  Dinner will be at his favorite local place – Sierra Nevada Brewery – which is also a favorite of mine, so that is a win-win!

My other major mission for the day is to figure out how to get through this week and this month financially.  It isn’t going to be easy, but I will somehow make it work.  Hopefully.

As far as Elf on the Shelf, not much today.  He is hanging out with our Nutcracker cookie jar.  His hat was missing when I dug him out of the box last week and so I told my daughter it was too warm for him to wear the hat but it would be cooling off this week and he would probably have to start wearing it again.  That means I have to go dig through the box and find it today though!  Hopefully it is in there.

The advent calendar did not get made last night.  I don’t know if I will have time to do it today either, so it may have to wait until the 3rd to begin.  Our church is doing an advent event on Thursday night, so I may just start it that day (good excuse for the delay, no?).  I am hoping we can make it to that.

I have so much to do.  I am trying to do a better job of keeping track of everything I have to do, but it is really overwhelming to think about/see it all in writing.  But, I’m going to try to work through it one thing at a time.  That is all I can do.

So, for today, the focus is birthday celebrating and getting through work.  Tomorrow starts the financial magic that will hopefully make this month work.
