Nice to have help like you did Donna,
I agree on the less & will try that myself this year <g>
Thing is when the guys come home they love to see all the stuff as we have had over the years.
Too bad it is just DH & I decorating though .. least the guys are here to help take it down though.

Every time I do anything my back reminds me I shouldn't be, LOL
Maybe one day on the maid for us :)

Hugs...We had my two youngest grandkids here the day before TDay as school was closed, so they helped me put my Dickens Village together. Then Saturday dh and I put our table top tree up. We keep it decorated and just take it downstairs after Cmas with the decorations still on it. I tighten the hooks well and we cover it with an old bed sheet to keep the dust off. Nice to just bring it up, set up the table and fabric draped under it and it's done! Yesterday we put the wreaths on the outside garage lights. I also changed the fabrics on the porch wicker chair cushions and throw pillows, we hung the two wreaths on the porch and put out my little sledding guy and that's it...done!! We don't put lights around windows or anything like that, we use the "less is more" theme..LOL! We did have lighted reindeer on the front lawn, but they're too old now and lights don't come on anymore. I may get something to replace them maybe.

Hope your back is much better by now. Wish I could send my cleaning lady your way. She's a good cleaner, very reasonably priced and so nice to have.

A fairly quiet week for you I see Donna,
You're all finished decorating already???
Those places that have lights & *sychronized* sounds wonderful & I can only imagine how pretty they would be to see.
Hard to believe so many already have lights on outside.
Oh good movies if you get to see them.
Good luck tonight at WI & Let us know how you do!

Have a wonderful week :)

Not too much going on this week....

Monday...stayed home and relaxed, finished Cmas decorating, watched a movie and played online.

Tuesday...My TOPS meeting that evening and it's not going to be a good weigh-in. I enjoyed the holiday dinners way too much! ;)

Wednesday...We might drive around and look at Cmas lights. There's a house here with a bazillion lights on it that "dance" to sycronized music.

Thursday - Saturday...No particular plans yet except getting my nails done Friday. I think we might go to the movie theater to see Breaking Dawn 2 or maybe Lincoln.

Sunday...Church will be extra good as we'll be having our annual Stan Kenton Brass Christmas performance for the entire service. That evening we're going to my oldest DGD's (age 15) Dance Showcase. She's the one who is a dancer like on DWTS. The Showcase is where they perform for family & friends at our beautiful Boat House where there will also be dinner served.

That's my stuff so far!! Have a good week everyone!!

I need to do some light house work,
Still another phone call which I am putting off, LOL
had to do a few this morning & I was not happy or nice with one ::gasp::
However right now my back is acting up again so we'll see how far I get on housework.
Otherwise a quiet week here although hoping I can go out to eat with my friend.

Hope everyone has a great week :)
