Sorry I haven't been on the board more often. Things have just gotten so crazy with the holidays. I'm sure you all know the feeling!

So how are things? Are you going nuts like me?

What are your plans for the week?

Are you finding it harder to be green as things get busier?

I'm going nuts! (Did I mention that?) ;)

This week I'm taking tomorrow off. I have some tax stuff I have to take care of before the end of the year (nothing bad, just relating to rolling a 401k over into an IRA). I have to go into the city to do that. Then I have Macy's school play and I'm trying to get some other stuff taken care of.

Thursday we have Fletcher's school play and holiday party. Friday I'm taking another day off for a field trip and to get my Christmas shopping, sewing, and wrapping done. We'll see how much I accomplish!

I'm really really really trying to stay sort of eco-friendly in the gift choices I make. With the kids it's harder because they want all the plastic toys. We ended up getting books, puzzles and board games at the thrift store for them. Then we bought them each a Santa gift that's the transformer, barbie, etc. Ha, we'll Santa take the fall for making poor environmental choices. Hahahaha

Lastnight was my panic moment.

That's exactly what I'm planning to do this year: Christmas eve + booze + wrapping.
