four weeks ...

... left till Christmas.


• Who has their decorations up? Their tree bought?

• How far along is your Christmas shopping?

• How's your budget this year?

• Any travel plans?

As for me:

• Not me. Nope.

• Not very; way behind this year.

• Actually, pretty good.

• None; as usual.

I'm actually getting rid of some things this week. A co-worker is buying two big bookcases, an old 13-inch TV/VCR combo and a big old chest, all for $10 each, or $40 total. It's not a lot, but it's not like she's well-off and it's not like the money is important; at least I'm getting a bunch of junk outta the apartment.

I will get rid of more this weekend -- the newsroom and the rest of the company holds an annual rummage sale, the profits of which go to a Christmas dinner and activity (usually movies) for a charity that helps out troubled teens. Last year I got rid of my old videos and a couple of video shelves. I have some other bookshelves and assorted stuff that I will clear out this year.

Will still try to hold an apartment sale later on to get rid of the rest of may assorted knick-knacks and junk ... unless I continue with procrastination majora ... heh.

I don't have decorations up yet. I need to get a tree first. Maybe tomorrow... I'm NOT fightin' the people out today!
I've bought a few small things, but I need to make a list and really get started. I'll probably do as much online as I can (like the last couple of years!)
You're supposed to have a budget??? Why didn't somebody tell me???
I'll be traveling about a mile down the road to my folks. It'll be nice this year to be close.
But the best part is, it's time to pull out the Christmas cds! Now if I can only find 'em...

Put the outdoor decorations up last week. Will do the inside this weekend. Budget is better this year than any other. Have some shopping done but can't find that ever elusive Wii, argh!

I think it would be fun to let people in to your apartment and have them make an offer on stuff. Even if you didn't want to get rid of it, you would if the money was good enough.
