By November 1, I have already started planning and shopping for Thanksgiving.
Joe and I are lousy housekeepers, and it usually takes us several days to get our home into holiday shape.
If we also have cooking to do during those days, we will end up being stressed out and irritable.
Not a good way to start the Thanksgiving holiday.
It’s not because Thanksgiving is that much work; it isn’t.
I’d just rather spread the work out over several weeks than worry about it all the week before the holiday.
Planning ahead makes all the difference in the world.
