  • Teacher gifts
Still left to do:
  • Trip to regular grocery store. I get to go to MJ's winter party this afternoon and so she and I will head to the store and get all we need for Christmas morning pecan sticky buns and quiche, the turkey brine, plus the new recipe I am trying for Christmas dessert.
  • Pick up the house tonight in preparation for my wonderful cleaning ladies tomorrow. Yippee!

I often pined for a Mother's Day or birthday gift where my whole house would be clean at once. Here, I have it!
