I'm in the Christmas Weeds

Need. More. Time.

Christmas is in FOUR days.  FOUR days people.  I have goodie boxes to finish, presents to wrap, and STILL more gifts to buy.  Losing those few days last week really slowed me down.  I've been lucky enough to not have to venture into the mall YET but I think that changes today.  I'm going to have to break down and do it.  Not looking forward to that too much.  I think especially because I used to work in retail I really hate the mall at Christmas time.  In fact I don't even really ever GO to the mall.  Target is my mall.

One thing I am looking forward to this year is hosting Christmas at my house.  It's a Wilder's year so we will be hanging out with the family here.  Usually my SIL hosts it but this year has been a hard year for her and she needs the break.  And I'm happy to give it to her and have everyone over.  I'm looking forward to just hanging out all day.  We have no major plans other than a lot of laziness.  Which sounds right up my alley right now.  Maybe I'll even sneak in a nap.  There will be lots of yummy food of course.  I'm still working on that part.  Which reminds me I REALLY need to go to the grocery store!

This year seems to have just snuck up on me.  I'm usually pretty good and done by this time.  I don't know if it's because I'm moving slower or what but I'm in the weeds this year.  I have to pull it together!  Anyone else struggling to keep up this year?  Or is it just me?

I am with you!! We have had a horrible time at work this past week. Several of my friends were laid off and my job is in question as well. It is hard to have Christmas spirit when that happens. Why do companies do that right before the holidays??? I am hoping to bring the joy back before Friday. Maybe because I work Christmas Day this year has made me a scrooge. I wish you were here to kick me in the rear!!!
