We’re a week into December and I can’t believe I already have most of my Christmas shopping done! The days have been flying by since I got my new job and I am so grateful to come home and not need to spend the whole evening trying to unwind. So far I really like it and am excited to get more into marketing and help others market themselves better. I also get to move around a little and the break in monotony definitely makes the week go by quicker and keeps things interesting, which is such a nice change from standing on my feet all day everyday. The holidays will be so much sweeter when I’m not so unhappy and stressed at work.
I’ve started getting in the holiday spirit. Our tree is up and as I’m typing this I’m watching the “Very Murray Christmas Special” (which is great, btw). Last night was German Village’s Village Lights and despite the above-average temps, it was festive and perfect. Before Christmas arrives, I plan on watching Love Actually, Elf, and A Christmas Story (already checked my favorite, Christmas Vacation, from the list). I still have lots of wrapping to do but I know I’ll just end up putting it off until last minute. Alas, if you’re looking for some budget friendly gift options, I put together a guide of items under $25:
