December musings

It is the third of December and I am not panicking/panicing- have not yet begun to panic. This is a new feeling for me, and I hope it is not indicative of an insane December 23rd or 24th. A few years ago I noticed that I was waiting to enjoy Christmas until I got "everything done." You can imagine how much enjoyment was happening. The afternoon of the 24th was always pleasant. I decided that in order to enjoy the holiday, I must enjoy the doing. And now I do. I have a few things to do to get my cards ready to mail, but I am sure that can be done by Monday. I need to look at everything I have purchased already and see if there are gaps for the kids. I need to get my exchange gift and Mama's gift and Grandma Kay and Papa Bob's gifts. Unfortunately, I don't have any fantabulous ideas for them as of yet. It will come. I am doing some shopping and preparing with DeAun on Friday, and we have some additional preparations to take care of after that. I need to schedule a candy making/baking day sometime soon, and the wrapping center needs to be set up (and utilized!) My tree is lit- the house is decorated and it is only December 3rd. I have Christmas music in my CD player in the house and in the car. I do love this holiday. I need to change my header pic for Christmas- I'll get on that in the next day or so. Happy Holiday season, everybody- it only comes once a year- enjoy the doing!
