Countdown until Christmas

Not seeing Josh much these days due to physical distance between us has made me look for ways to keep busy. I found a link called 100 Days to Christmas and I'm working on this. I am creating my list for Christmas cards tonight. This is the earliest I have ever done this. I'm amazed, but it will help so much to be able to get this done before Christmas Eve. I started a few days late so I'm working my way backward. I probably won't have a binder, as I plan to do most of this online. But I'm guessing this will help a lot for keeping me busy and creative this fall. I look forward to having Christmas organized this year. :)

Anyway, here's the link:

Tomorrow is the first day of autumn!

Today is my boyfriend's birthday, and I am excited. While we're going able to see each other tonight, we are going to meet for lunch tomorrow with a couple other friends. And tomorrow night we have a date. :)

Tomorrow is also the first day of the best season of the year: autumn. It's all about crisp air, crunchy and colorful leaves, the new fashions and sweaters, apple cider, pumpkins and pumpkin seeds, among other things.

And I'm officially terrible at a meal plan. I'm going through my shopping list now, and it looks like I can get stuff at 3 different stores.... It's a little overwhelming right now. But there are some great deals. I'm going past a bunch of these stores on my way home this week, so it's not like it will be hard to get to any of these or that I'd have to go out of my way and spend extra gas money. But choosing which stores to go to sometimes gets a little frustrating. But because I have virtually nothing in my current home, I kind of need to stock up a little. Trying to save money while doing it is a little bit of a challenge.
