35 days til Christmas??? )(#$(@*&!!!!

I am so not ready for Christmas. Usually by now I am 75% or more done with my holiday shopping. I am currently about 5% done - if that. Arghh!! We haven't started working on our Christmas letter - yes, we do one of the horrible tomes that recounts our whole year; haven't taken a holiday picture; and are just plain not ready. I don't know if its the house renovation, or just our crazy lives right now, but I am never felt so unprepared, and it is freaking me out. I really need to focus. Hopefully over the long weekend (somewhere during our 6+ hour car trips, perhaps?) I can at least make some lists to get me started.

Is it just me, or did the holidays totally sneak up on us this year??!!

I actually am feeling pretty good about Christmas - I think b/c it's Nov. Once Dec.1 rolls around I'll start feeling like I'm ages behind. Maybe you can write your xmas letter while in the car?

It's partly because Thanksgiving is early this year. It's partly because of the stuff we've had going on. But mostly, I think it's in your head. :-)

Relax...we'll get things done. Most of our shopping is via the internet anyway.

I'm glad I am not the only one stressing about Christmas....I have nothing accomplished and I don't feel ready at all. I can't even enjoy Thanksgiving because I know it means I am closer to Christmas and I am just not ready!

I felt exactly that way a few days ago. But I jumped in and did the Christmas shopping Saturday with family (an annual event), and then have been running to Target & Toys R Us the last couple days on my lunch break. Between all that & online, I've gone from about 2% done to about 75% done. Whew! We do the Christmas letter too, and I haven't even thought about it yet.

It's always that way with me. Every. Single. Year. I always say it's not going to be that way this year, but it always is.

use a summer picture. everyone will enjoy the summer styles and it wont be the same as everyone else's holiday sweater picture.

shop online. ;-) hope that helps.

I also think having a blog makes a Christmas letter either (a) hard or (b) superfluous since you've already told us everything haven't you?
