Christmas is Coming and I'm not Ready

Oh. My. God. I think this is the same post from last year!

I'm starting to see a pattern here and I can’t believe how bad I’ve become. I didn’t have a vacation as an excuse this year. Nope, just plain ol’ procrastination.

The tree went up two weeks ago, but wasn’t decorated until this past weekend. The Christmas cards went out on Tuesday and the package for California went out yesterday. I did get most of my shopping finished on Black Friday (via internet – I was smart enough to stay away from the stores), but I still have to shop for my husband. And then there’s the stockings. They are always the last minute purchase for me!

So with snow on the ground, and air that belongs in a freezer, I’ll be braving the stores tomorrow and hopefully won’t come home until I’m finished.

I certainly hope you’re better off than I am. Maybe next year I'll plan better. Maybe next year I'll start sooner. Maybe. But I ain't holdin' my breath!

I'm totally NOT done yet either!!!! YIKES! It's like a yearly event that I fail to remember until it's upon me! Boo!

Good luck to you! ;-)

We will START our shopping Monday when the kids are with Grandma. :) I bought like one thing on Cyber MOnday and that is it. LOL

Kristi - It seems to becoming a yearly event for me, too. I really need to get my butt in gear!

Kimber - If I had vacation left, that's probably what I'd do, too. Unfortunately, I don't. The stores were horrid today, but I got it done. Now it's on to wrapping!

Good luck with the last minute details, Stacy. We're still finalizing a few things, too. Hang in there and dress warm!!

Hey Jimmy! Thanks for visiting. I'll be warm tomorrow while I stay inside to watch the Pittsburgh Steelers play on TV (one of the rare days we actually get the game at home and don't have to go out to BW3s to watch it).

Of course, I still have to wrap - but I got a week, right???

Somehow I think you'll be ready when Santa gets there. :)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Hi DL! I think I'll be ready, too. I always seem to over-react. Guess it's part of my nature!

Thanks for visiting!

Ah! But you can do that with one hand as you type with the other!
