It is the first day of December! Oh my! I am unprepared for Christmas and the New Year! Sunday is the Christmas Concert. That, I am some what prepared for. I have the students Christmas presents, I just have to wrap them. I wish I could get some plain white bags because that would be so much easier to use that to wrap them. The gift they got is difficult to wrap. I will find something that will work though. I will stop by the craft store tomorrow to see what they have. A cool stocking would be neat too. Who knows? I will find something.
My friend, Laura stopped by tonight. She was picking up a lot of the raffle items for the event she is involved in this weekend. I think I have about 10 violins left and I am very excited about that. There are a couple that are not painted. I may do the this winter. I am not sure. I will see how this winter goes. I don't have to have them done and if I don't that is okay.
Choir went well tonight. We are not singing in the Christmas Eve services. I am relieved because I was planning on going to church with Kathy and family. I think I should be able to be there Christmas Day though. I will see. I won't be there this Sunday but I should be there for the next two before Christmas. We are singing some pretty awesome music. We really are. I like all of it. This Sunday is the song "Joy, Joy, Joy" but I won't be there because of the Christmas Concert. I have to pick up some black ink tomorrow too since I know I will be out before the end of the printing of the concert program. I am going to begin the program on Friday and print on Saturday afternoon/evening. I also will clear the dining room table on Friday or Saturday so it is empty for Sunday. I hope to have a new table cloth for it too. I am not sure, but I will try.
I was so tired this morning. I am slept pretty well for a change. I am hoping for another decent night sleep tonight. I am tired now so I will be heading upstairs rather soon. I did wake up once and had to come down and read for a few minutes but then I didn't wake up again for several hours, which is really awesome. I will read for a bit to exhaust myself even more. I have to go through my books and see what I don't want and what I do. That will be the hard part, choosing books to donate or take to the used bookstore. I like taking them to the used bookstore because then I get the lower prices of the new to me books I buy. I won't go and get anymore right now, but eventually I will after the property taxes are paid. I have another payment ready to go out tomorrow after I go to the bank. It will be a big one and I am excited about it. This will bring the payments close to what I was hoping for. I am thankful for that. Only 3 more months of these huge payments to save for and then 2010 taxes are all paid for. Then I can start on 2011, which I got a bill for today. Oh my, the never ending property taxes! At least it is less than last year's at this time.
I do hope you are having a good day. It started as a not feeling so hot day to a better day. 24 days until Christmas!!
