  • You too? LOL! I'm waiting on hubby to come home from work so he can corral the kittens who want to help! No advice really, just fix yourself some cocoa or hot apple cider and play a Christmas movie or music in the background, and see if that helps. Good luck and Merry Christmas!

  • I have no advice just wanted you to know that I am right there with you and I also need to go to the store but we had a ice storm last night and it is slick out so I'll have to wait a while on that one. I can't get motivated this year either

  • I can't wrap now, my kids will be up in a minute. But I wrapped for about 1 hour this morning and last night, so I'm in good shape!

  • Set a timer. I am so addicted to CafeMom that I'll think of any excuse, so I play a little game. I set a timer thqt I have to do only 15 minutes, say, of a job I'm putting off, before I can go on the computer. Usually once I get started, I want to finish the job. I finished mine early this year, so I now have some free time, but in years past, I was like you, wrapping right up till the last.

  • I set a goal, wrap 6 things and then move to something else. Make a great cup of cocoa, turn up the Christmas music, get on comfy clothes and go for it. If I was there I would help. LOL
