So with the coming and going of Thanksgiving, I guess it's safe to say that we're now officially into the holiday season. While some of us are down right giddy about this, others may be feeling a little tentative. I've been trying extra hard to plan well this year, so that I'm not rushing around as usual. Things are falling into place, but it's sure to get crazy soon enough. For now, I am having a positive attitude! (Think positive...think positive...)
I'll be taking a short trip during the second week of December, which will add to the chaos, but worth it. LA plans to fly back to Hawaii with the peanuts, and since Rex won't be joining them until the latter part of the month, I decided to fly back with her to help out during the flight. Since 1 LA + 2 peanuts = yikes. (1 LA + I Nonnahs + 2 peanuts = still yikes, but at least we've got a 1 to 1 ratio at that point.) I wanted to go for a visit anyway, so this ends up working out. This way, I can go back for a short time, while making myself useful, and then B and I will be able to spend Christmas with his fam in San Diego. This is only fair, since he spent last Christmas in Hawaii with me and my fam. (Note: this will be my very first non-Hawaii Christmas in 36 11/12 years...I'm a little concerned at how my psyche will handle this, but am trying not to think about it.)My trip will be brief, but fun- I'm really looking forward to it! Of course, this deprives me of some prime holiday-related prep time, so I'm trying my best to plan accordingly. I bring this upon myself, after all, I know. I don't have to buy and wrap presents, but I do. I don't have to send out cards, but I do. I don't have to bake, but I do. So, it's all good. (Think positive...think positive...)
Now, totally unrelated: This is what I'll call the tip for a tip segment. I have a handy tip to pass along, and if you could assist me with something, too, I would really appreciate it! My tip: If you don't like junk mail, and you do like trees, head over to GreenDimes. For just a dime a day, they will stop your paper junk mail and plant a tree for you each month! In their first month, 3,220 lbs of junk mail was prevented, 11,272 gallons of water was saved, and more than 4,000 trees were planted! How cool is that?? B and I signed up right away.
Okay, now your tip (if you have one to share): If you are a man, have a man, or know a man who smells really good due to a scent not his own, could you let me know what the appealing bottled fragrance called? He smells just fine, I don't mean to infer anything different, but he is looking for a cologne. (Trust me, I realize that the best thing would be for him to go to Sephora or somewhere and test smells, but considering how often I can drag him to the mall in the first place, I just figured it might be easier if I picked out something that he (and I) might like, and if not, then we could tackle the exchange process.) Problem is-I know nothing of men's fragrances, so I wanted to ask for suggestions. Any and all would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! And Happy Tuesday!
