We're on the countdown now aren't we? I haven't accomplished all the things I wanted to do nor I have completed all of my craft ideas. I keep thinking that "yes, it will all get done" and that the most important thing to remember is this is a season of remembering Christ's birth and being with family and friends. Keep that in mind,
Be careful with your online shopping too. I discovered an unauthorized withdrawal from my checking account yesterday while reviewing my bank statement on line. It was almost $80 and scared me to death! I spent most of the afternoon dealing with the Credit Union, the police dept...spent an hour there between waiting and discussing the situation with an officer. My debit card was immediately cancelled and, after leaving the police dept, I thought..."How am I going to function?" It will be 7-10 days before the new one is received...and here we are in the midst of the holidays. :-( My Credit Union is cashless so they referred me to another that could issue cash so off I went to find that office, stand in line once again, etc., etc. I was able to obtain cash there so I feel better about that. You know, it seems to cash checks at grocery stores or other places now, you have to have cashed 7 checks in 7 days or some cock-eyed rule. :-) I use my debit card all the time. Anyway, just keep an eye on your finances, ok? I have been so busy I hadn't checked my account in a few days and look what happened!
I hope that you're taking good care of yourselves and taking a few moments now and again to relish the season!
