And a Partridge in a Pear Tree...
Yes! I got the 4 packages out the door. They are currently on my porch awaiting carrier pickup this very day. I used all recycled packaging, so my shelf full of boxes and envelopes in the basement earned its keep. I finished up a roll of packing tape, but fortunately, I had more and here's the miracle, it was in the place where it lives so I could find it!
I love having things NOT hanging over my head.
And, as the title might imply, we have started listening to Christmas music. We decided, after being in Home Depot on October 27 and seeing an entire greenhouse of Christmas decorations, that it was time to just succumb to Early-onset Christmas Season Syndrome and enjoy our favorite music of the year. It is definitely motivating me to get ready.
