Christmas Madness!


The last two weeks of November and the first week of December are always the busiest time of the entire year for me. The reason is simple -- Christmas. These three weeks are when my holiday preparations come to a head: shopping, wrapping, getting cards ready to send, mailing packages, decorating. I like to have everything done by early December so I can relax and enjoy all the holiday parties, concerts and general socializing that fill the rest of the month. Because I work full time, scheduling everything that needs to be done for Christmas can be quite a challenge. So alas, I will probably not be doing much, if any, blogging between now and early December. But fear not -- I'll be back -- although probably trailing wrapping paper, scotch tape and a big tangled ball of mini-lights, with postage stamps stuck to my tongue.

Oh my gosh, I haven't even begun to think about Christmas.

I know exactly what you are saying. It's really hard to get things done when you work full-time. That's why, even though my dental appointment was cancelled, I am keeping these three vacation days off that I took so I can get started. Hope to have the tree and my village up before Thanksgiving.

LOL...I already put up the tree and finished xmas shopping (everything on sale with coupons!). Oh yes I did! Now I can sit back, relax and enjoy the season. I remember putting everything off last year and doing too much last minute...not fun! We'll see you when you get back...hopefully the postage stamps will have fallen off by then ;)

I am amazed...I'm already singing Christmas music, but it seems too early to be doing Christmas shopping! Wow...

Watch that scotch tape - it really does take the hair right off your arms and anywhere else you get it stuck. Just don't wrap naked - lol!

Debra do you think people want their news that way. I don't. I just think they cater to the lowest denominator.

Love Renee xoxo

Oh, I so wished that I loved this holiday, but maybe other people's joy will rub off on me this year. Have a wonderful Holiday!
