Moving right along in December, it’s not too late to get your Weekly Menu Plan ready!
Are you ready for a break? Or maybe you don’t get off around the holidays?
When I worked retail, I’ll admit in a lot of ways I DREADED the holidays. It wasn’t really fun or joyous it was a whole lot of stress.
Now I’ll say, I did work at a few places that really did make it fun and joyous, that was more the people that worked there though than anything else.
The hours though were hard to wrap my mind around. It was one of those things where you had to quickly eat dinner and then head on off to the store to be open for Christmas Eve or the day after Christmas.
Now, I don’t work retail and I really do ENJOY the holidays. I love every single minute of it. This year, my husband was able to take off for the week of Christmas, that just made me even more excited.
He works for a company now that really does value their employees, which is a great thing and they allow more days off around the holidays.
This is the first company he’s worked for that has done that. I still remember the first year he worked there and didn’t have to work the day after Thanksgiving…it was so crazy! His company counts that as a holiday…which I love!
We have lots of plans around the holidays, but for the most part those include doing things at home as a family. I plan a big baking day with the kids and this year my husband gets to join us.
I’m not sure how excited he is about that, but I know the kids and I are excited to have him take part in it. Then, once we get done we go and deliver treats to friends and family.
It’s a fun thing I’ve done with the kids since they were very little and hope someday to do with my grandkids too! Someday as in DECADES away…but the years go fast!
Now let’s get this menu planned!
