Where did November go?

Wow it’s almost over already. I can’t wait to put up our Christmas tree soon. I wanted to do it this weekend but I am going to visit my parents for American Thanksgiving. Odd I know. No one in my family is American (not immediate family anyways).  However our client at work deals with mostly US citizens and because of that made the decision to close our phone lines over American Thanksgiving . For those of you that do not know Canadian Thanksgiving  was Monday October 14th this year, it’s always the second Monday in October… Just a little Canadian tidbit  So anyways I guess I will have to wait till the week or the next weekend to put it up.

November really did go by fast, I spent half of it sick and at home so I suppose that’s partly why. I was doing so good in September and October money wise and got so much paid off. My last pay check was a measly $77 lol. Oh well. I saved $100 from the one before and got the bills paid for the month and Cory kinda picked up the rest. It’s gonna be a struggle to get Christmas shopping done. It’s times like this I wish I was more pro-active and had most of it done already. But I am such a procrastinator when it comes to Christmas shopping. I have always been one to wait and then rush the week before Christmas to get it all done on a limited budget. If I planned it better I would not feel so stressed about it. Every year I say I am going to start early and never do.

I’m trying to figure out what to do about a Christmas theme for my blog as well. Should I just take this theme, copy it and change it to make it Christmasy or should I just download a ready made one from somewhere… and where?? I’m gonna look tonight, maybe I’ll find something I like. I would love to make a theme from scratch but I just don’t have the time and I also just don’t feel like it. So who knows… I just know I want it changed by December 1st so I better hurry up!

  1. A Christmasy blog theme is nice!!! But if I’m generally happy with a theme I prefer to just change the colours a bit and add another header with a Christmasy feeling. I think that despite the fact that there are so many themes around, there are very few ones that are actually good enough for my taste.
    I always suck at getting Christmas shopping done. Most years it’s mostly to do with time. This year more than ever..

    1. Yeah I am hardly ever completely happy with themes and even the few I’ve created all myself. I like my last theme and will probably bring it back and change it a bit after Dec.

    My gosh money is so hard to come by during the year and now it’s just sad to try to scrimp and save to get Christmas gifts. We can’t afford to buy what we would like for our loved ones but we do what we can. I hope your holidays are lovely.

    1. Thanks, I hope yours are too!
