Are you ready for Christmas?

I cannot believe Christmas is 8 days from now. I don't feel ready for it at all. I still have shopping to do, I haven't done any baking or candy making this year. We have a tree up, although none of the other decorations have been put up.

My DD has been in and out of the hospital for the past 3 weeks, so I know why I am not ready, I just wish we had one more week.

  • Do NOT allow the calendar to rule your holiday especially seeing that you have had other things going on... there is nothing saying you HAVE to do "your" Christmas celebration on the 25th. You can maybe do a hot chocolate and memory night on the 25th or if you are religious do something in honor of your religion and then have your celebration later.
