Most of today was spent resting up with the hope that my newest cold will go away. I did have a chance to find the kids snow suits because it snowed here again. We don’t get too much snow here on the West Coast but it’s excepted to be very snowy this year. Other than some snow boots for myself and maybe my youngest we have everything we need to survive this season.
One thing we do every year is donate food to the food bank. It gives us a chance to go through the cupboards and give away anything that we bought by accident or with good intentions but that we will never use. Other years we have gathered up quite a bit of food. This year it’s a different story. Our cupboards are not nearly as packed as before. Most of the items in them we use regularly. I did find some jars of baby food my youngest didn’t like and almost a full case lot of veggie soup that we accidentally bought instead of tomato soup. All the little bits have been put together and are now in my trunk waiting for drop off. My Chiropractor even has a day every December where if you donate 12 food items you get a free adjustment. What a great idea! We have participated a few times over the years. We might do that again this year to add to our giving.
We don’t have snow tires, enough outdoor Christmas lights, most of our Christmas presents bought or any special baking done. Will we ever be ready?
