What is Rudy Day ? .....

I've always enjoyed Christmas. The decorations, the flurry and, of course, the real meaning but always felt let down on December 26. It was all over in a flash. All the planning and doing was gone in a minute. Finally I found the OC ...not the tv show but the Organized Christmas website which led to the Magical Holiday Home Forum. I don't even know how I found it but I did. And they had this wonderful thing called Rudolph Day....Rudy Day to most of us.....that lets you think, plan, dream about Christmas at least once a month on the 25th. And the best thing was I found more people out there just like me ! Crazy about all things Christmas. Well, almost obsessive. But to my family and friends that think I'm nuts half the time, I just want you to know there is no cure for it so don't try to find one. I wouldn't want the cure if you could find one anyway.

The Most Productive Rudy Day Ever......

or at least this year. But there is always room to improve! This month I had the check list from below to do. Considering that Rudy Day fell on a Wednesday, I was really skeptical about getting anything done. That paying job can sure get in the way of the fun sometimes but it is also what pays for the fun.

I updated my Christmas Notebook with pictures I had taken from last year, separated them by room, made notes on each page as to what I liked and didn't like about each one, wrote suggestions for this year. Then made a list to put in my small Christmas notebook of what I needed to buy for each idea. I even had enough time to start one of the craft decorations that I had picked out.

During lunch I went to Wal-Mart to look for a Christmas movie to watch but they didn't have any. I did find two movies in the 2/$10 bin that I could use for DH and DS23's Christmas stockings. I went to the library instead and checked out "A Christmas Carol" with Patrick Stewart DVD. I watched it while working on Rudy Day while drinking a double hot chocolate. How relaxing!!

I had hoped to get along enough with my craft project to post a picture. I have it all cut out. Most of the rest is hand work that I hope to do on the way to and from the in-laws this weekend. Hopefully I'll get enough done to post a picture next week.
