Advent a week away!

Advent starts next Sunday!

My plan for the week is to:
  • Catch up on laundry (I really really really need to do this, and then STAY on top of it!)
  • Clean my bedroom
  • Write a plan about how we're celebrating Advent this year
  • Find the Advent/Christmas season books and put them in a basket in the living room next Sunday. Some years past I have wrapped them -- not sure if I'm going to make the effort this year.
  • Write out a baking plan, including cookies and other treats as well as WHEN they'll be baked.
  • Finalize our gift list.
  • Put stuff up on ebay to earn the money to purchase our gift list.
  • Shop for, and celebrate Thanksgiving
The boys & I cleaned their bedroom thoroughly last week. Since I'm going to tackle my room this week, I'll put off the playroom another week I think. Some major decluttering will have to happen in there, especially since that room needs to become L's room in the next few months and the playroom and the boys' room will need to be combined.

One of my plans for Advent is to hold Sunday as a day of rest. Too often, it becomes a day of errands and cleaning house after church. I want it to become a day of rest and enjoyable family time and I decided that Advent was as good a time as any to start implementing that.

Another thing I want to do is finally finish all the decluttering that I started during my pregnancy. Our office is the worst area at the moment. I would love for the house to be decluttered and painted (interior) by Christmas -- or the New Year at the latest. Careful planning (and help from DH & the boys) can make it happen!
