… I will try to finish Christmas shopping. Since some of the kids were sick today, I decided to go Christmas shopping while Bernie stayed home with them and worked on finishing our basement. I was able to get gifts for 5 of the kids and Bernie, but I still need to buy gifts for the other 2 kids and both of our moms. This year my siblings and I decided not to exchange gifts, but we will still have our yearly get-toger at my mom’s house. I want to be able to focus on Advent instead of stressing myself out before Christmas. Advent is just 3 weeks away!
