Christmas 2010







Well, I made it! That panic that was setting in a couple of weeks ago is gone. Christmas cards were sent out, the house was decorated (although, not as much as usual,) gingerbread houses were made, Christmas programs were attended, and gifts were bought/made and wrapped. Whew! I feel tired again just telling it all! Thank you to my wonderful sister that helped with my boys on Christmas Eve day, while Santa's elves brought this cool, new swing set/fort for the boys. What a surprise on Christmas morning to find this big item in the backyard that wasn't there the day before!
Now, on to Phase II of Christmas break ---taking all this stuff down! Oh, and there's that little project of a nursery that has to be done this week! Yes, that's right folks, we're in week 32 and the countdown to baby is on!

The Panic Is Setting In



As I opened that first Christmas card today, I felt the panic setting in, knowing that I haven't ordered my Christmas cards, yet. I haven't bought the first Christmas present. I haven't even finished decorating. I feel suddenly compelled to make lists ---it's a coping method that makes me feel a little better. And, with only 2 weeks left before teachers get out for Christmas break, I feel even more overwhelmed thinking of what I have to get done at work! Not to mention the fact that there will be a new baby not long after Christmas that I don't have a nursery finished for! Okay, breathe.......I can do this.....tonight's mission ---order Christmas cards!!!
