Thinking Out Loud – Christmas So Far
At the moment I’m mostly just thinking about what still needs to happen over the next four days. I’ve been doing a little bit of wrapping each day which has helped immensely! I have typically waited until the last second to get my gifts wrapped in the past which has led to major stress. I started wrapping a couple of gifts a day starting last Sunday and I’m most of the way done. I just have a few left. I also need to get some “Santa” wrapping paper to wrap Ollie’s Santa gift with.
I should take a poll that guesses how many times between now and Christmas Day I’ll be at Target. I have been once already and I have at least one more trip planned. We forgot to grab something small for Nate’s cousin’s baby and also a present for the dice game at his aunt and uncle’s house on Christmas Day. I’m just getting a feeling there may be other reasons over the next few days we might need to pop in there. I was laughing with Jen the other day though – Christmastime is like the only time that going to Target feels like a chore!
I have not watched Elf, Home Alone or A Charlie Brown Christmas yet. I think those will all be my required viewing over the next few days here. I have managed to watch The Holiday, all the Christmas episodes of Friends, A Very Sunny Christmas and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation though.
We’ve seen holiday lights, visited Santa, done lots of baking, decked our halls inside and out. I think we’ve been doing pretty good. I feel ready for Christmas even with the few things I haven’t done quite yet. And now my goal is to step back, relax and enjoy these next few days. I know from past experience this time will fly by too fast.
Are you feeling ready for Christmas?
