After all the tragedy last week, it’s hard to feel like these simple and trivial things are important. My heart and stomach hurt when I think about what happened and I just wish those families were worrying about silly things like this right now. Having been a teacher and now a parent, it’s so hard to imagine.
There are less than 7 full days before Christmas. It’s hard to believe. I was so on top of things earlier in December and somehow the past two weeks vanished and now it’s crunch time.
I’m having a constant struggle of what I should be doing. When I do have a free minute, should I wrap, should I blog, should I bake cookies, should I clean, I need to do laundry, should I finish a picture christmas gift that is taking forever on the computer. There is not good answer because all of it needs to happen so it’s just a matter of the mood. Today my mood and mind were into wrapping. I decided it was a good day to pull things out and go through them to see what I still needed for people and what I have set. Then there is still time to run out and and get the rest of the things I need.
Have you figured out what you are making for Christmas Eve, or Christmas Day, or the day after Christmas when more family is coming over for dinner?
