I know it's early, but I am starting to feel a bit of stress about the upcoming Christmas Holiday. I did not do any preparation, as far as saving in advance, although I did write Christmas gifts into my December budget (You will see it in my December 16-31 budget). I plan to do most of my Christmas shopping online so I need to start ordering things now in order to avoid delays and other timing mishaps. I would prefer to wait until my December 15th pay day to start ordering things, but I think I'm going to have to start now. That bothers me only because the law firm I work for (as I have discussed numerous times) does not have its sh*t together, so I never know what kind of craziness to expect come pay day.
I have also started thinking about getting my taxes together for next year. I'm so stressed out. I have all of these medical expenses to track down and add up. I have most of them in a folder, but I also need to find out the cost for all of the prescriptions I have paid for, etc. I also need to add up all of the homeowner's deductions that I can take. I want to get that all done in December to see if I need to make any charitable donations order to get the most benefit from my deductions.
Anyways, I have to go get cleaned up and dressed so I can go stress at work!
