Before falling into the OMG IT'S ALMOST CHRISTMAS AND I SO DON'T HAVE MY S**T TOGETHER abyss, I'd like to offer that little piece of advice to myself.
Anyone else on the precipice right now?? Good, I feel so much better already.
I was doing OK for maybe what, the first 5 minutes into December…but there's still so much to do. Sew together six half cut out Christmas stockings that I started two weeks ago, design and post cards to family and friends, attend a neighbourhood party, cater for a work do, deliver a hamper, hang Christmas lights, bake sugar cookies and finally put up our beloved tree that for the moment remains firmly jammed in too small a box. Just excuse me while I go hyperventilate in a corner somewhere 🙂
What ever happened to being Miss Super Organised? For the moment it seems she is lost in between Miss I Can't Get To Work On Time and Miss Sleep is for Suckers!
Thankfully, I have at least one thing under control for the moment. After deciding this year to forego the two minute gift opening session on Christmas morning (the downfall of a 'secret santa' Christmas for small families) and buy lots of little things for everyone, I shopped early. That's right, no dodging of tanty throwing toddlers or Hunger Games style shopping experiences for me this year. Hoorah!
