How Many Days until the Holidays?

Shmoozin' with Susan

Each year I am always amazed how quickly time goes by. Once again I’m asking myself “How Many Days until the Holidays? Didn’t we just finish shopping, having our dinners and going to parties? Well, here we go again!



Now is the time to get started. I thought I’d share some ideas to help conserve energy, simplify things and how to keep a calm mind!

Take into consideration weather, traffic and all that you have to do for that day. Space out what you need to do whether it’s shopping for gift, decorations, food, etc. so you don’t overdo it. You can also call the stores ahead of time to make sure items you want are available.
