So I’m kinda freaking out here that Christmas is in 26 days and I don’t have my tree up, no cookies made, no Christmas cards done, this cool advent thing that I wanted to do with the kids not done (oops – that’s for tomorrow!!!!). Christmas food for two Christmas parties not bought, cooked or baked. Presents not bought, and the ones that are bought aren’t wrapped, and yet today I fixed our old brown blanket/throw. It’s not even picture worthy. Now in my defense it was Jason’s grandpa’s, everyone loves it and I didn’t want it to get worse, but it’s been broken for ages… so I had to fix it today? Really? And then tomorrow my mom is coming to help me make curtains for my living room. We have lived here for 7 years and I still don’t have proper curtains, but tomorrow, December 1st? And even though I am going to love having them done for Christmas… I think I officially need my head examined.
But I’m still hopeful, from this point on by God’s grace and some careful planing I still might be able to fudge it all and somehow be ready for a peaceful, joyful Christmas. Hopefully all you readers are doing better than me!!!
