2. Days Off
I am sooooooo excited - I've got an extra long weekend coming up which is awesome....I've got so much stuff to do now that the holiday season is underway. I started a to-do list today and I keep adding to it - gah! The biggest thing on the list - Christmas baking! I love to bake, so I'm looking forward to getting down to business and testing out a ton of new recipes. Now for quality control purposes, I'll have to taste test the recipes before I give them out - yes, such a hardship I know - but I'll try to keep it under control and not go crazy!
3. My Adopted Soldier
Last year on a website that I frequent that shall remain unnamed, I heard about this program called the Chosen Soldier. Basically, you "adopt" a Canadian soldier that's been posted overseas in Afghanistan and send them goodies for Christmas - I did this last year and it was so much fun I decided to sponsor another soldier again this year. It was really neat because my soldier emailed me to say hello and send his thanks - so very cool! I figure it's the least that I can do for those folks that are out on the front lines and who are away from their families at Christmas. Now what to buy, what to buy....
