As evidence of how out of control and unfocused my life has been lately, I shall present to you the current status of Christmas in my domicile.
No gifts have been purchased. I know what I'm buying for everyone in the family, 99% of it is coming from Amazon and being shipped directly to their homes for somebody else to wrap. Oh, wait, I did already buy and send gifts for my sister and father so that only leaves... well, everyone else.
No baking, though I've done less of this each year. We always have "Goodies Day" at work the Friday before the holiday so I usually do my baking to correspond with that.
No Christmas music. We listened to exactly two songs in the car on Saturday night before Joe changed to another station.
And, probably the biggest indication of the State of Christmas in my home?
No Tonya dressed up in her red shirt and Santa hat. For which she thanks me.
I plan to remedy a lot of this over the weekend. We won't do many decorations and I plan to send our paper cards out as well (we'll be doing some email "cards" this year). I want to have shopping completed by Sunday night.
My hope is that by Monday I'll have the "work" out of the way so I can enjoy the last 10 days or so leading up to the holiday.
How are your holiday plans progressing?
