Happy June Rudolph Day

Not going to get a lot of Rudolph stuff accomplished today due to getting ready for my vacation. I will play some Christmas music and think "snowy" thoughts.

Rudolph Day is a wonderful way to have a bit of Christmas fun and get ready for Christmas at the same time. I have learned to plan some small managable things each month. It's always easy for me to over plan and then feel discouraged. So this year I've planned small things that can be fun but also move me toward being ready for Christmas. In addition, I have set some time lines for certain things.

For example: July is Finish Stocking Stuffer month and August is the Month of the Elf....so by getting those two things out of the way early I can continue to move toward a more organized Christmas. In addition, I will use August to at least assess where I am on the St. Nick gifts. I have some things to use but I need to get a better idea of how this is going to unfold. (1st year of doing it)

These are small things that can have a big impact. I tend to over buy little gifts for stockings, elf gifts, and such so this will limit that because I will be done with those aspects of the plan. There are tons of little things that come out during the Christmas season but realistically they are "cute" and that's about it. How many Christmas notepads does a person need...lol.

I already feel a bit behind (lol) as I meant to have a lot more done by this time of the year but I will just continue to work my plan step by step.

I have my list of what I have already! I think we are in good shape for the stocking and elf..I agree all the little knick knacks at christmas can be nice but just a waste and end up in the trash
