Tis The Season

Christmas time can be so hectic, what with Christmas parties, present buying, present wrapping and various other family engagements, it's hard to keep on top of everything.  I tend to make lists when I have a lot to get done.  This helps me to remember all the things I need to do, as well as giving me that sense of satisfaction when I cross things off my list.

This year, I've decided to make my list more life-friendly, as in, what happens in real like.

Here we go...
