Are you frantic with getting things done before the holidays? There is a crazy vibe out there.

It's raining here, parking is a bitch, everything is slammed with people and the energy is just so thick with stress it's palpable! I want to like this time of year and yet, not so much for me.

  • I sensed it before Thanksgiving. That's why I went to the store Monday and got everything that I was going to get because I am not running around last minute with all that craziness. Hope you have fun! LOL!!!

  • nope
    notbecause i am organixed more than another
    but because this christmas is small
    i left childs father, no money
    did get a zuzu pet with free coupon, a few free toys from freecycle
    will add the gifts from relatives = they can all be from santa, as my child is three and does not know when i write a thank you to relative for her, gifts this year can be from santa
    did get free books atlibrary for my siblings, other people are getting a photo of my beautiful daughter

    i do not have anything for my mother, who took both of us in, paying for everything right now, and went from quiet house to house with three yr old with autism and her frantic mom=any ideas...close to zero budget..

  • Yep. It sucks. We went to Target today to finish up our shopping and we were frazzled when we left! It was packed! Christmas is not supposed to be like this.
