Less than a week until Christmas, what have I been DOING?
I can tell you what I HAVEN'T been doing; baking, writing Christmas cards, shopping, watching holiday movies, and anything else that I suddenly realize with 6 days to go, should be done... NOW if it is going to get done at all.
I HAVE been making time to be with people I care about, making myself available for my daughter's wedding related activities (very important stuff), and pretty much pretending that Christmas isn't just around the corner.
Now...it's time to pay the eleven pipers piping.
Is anyone else addicted to that adrenaline rush that happens when it looks like you might not make it?
I should be finished and have my feet up in front of the fire watching Christmas in Connecticut but I'll admit to being in a bit of Christmas rebellion. When the decorations arrive in stores in August and the carols are heard immediately after Halloween, I work hard to ignore it.
I've been a major success.
What am I serving on Christmas Eve? No idea.
What am I having for Christmas Day brunch? Beats me.
This is however, where many previous years of scrupulous planning come into play. Because I have...
It contains more ideas than I could get to in 50 holiday seasons. Asian themed Christmas...got it. Directions for making silhouette plates of pets for gifts...check. Web addresses for ordering personalized gift wrap...yep.
I killed off my perfection driven demons years ago and I don't miss them.
Neither does anyone else.
The documentation of those years is about to come in very handy though!
Time to "git r done"...
I cannot believe I just wrote that. It cannot be a good sign.
Merry Christmas, Y'all!
