Christmas planning and stressing…..

There’s no doubt about it, this will be our busiest week yet. Strangely, I don’t think I’ve felt quite this way leading up to Christmas before. So much to do, to complete, and overwhelmingly little time in which to get it all done. I love Christmas, it’s my favorite holiday. I love the present-buying and wrapping, anticipating what I will get and watching others open their gifts…..and of course, remembering the most incredible gift that God gave us in His son Jesus.

We were able to give a bit extra to our sponsored child for him and his family to experience a little more in this season, we’ve helped with giving money and toys to various people/organizations through our church…..I love doing all that, and wouldn’t miss it. But I do feel overwhelmed at the moment at the thought of what is left to be done. It shouldn’t be that way, and I know tonight or tomorrow I will be back to feeling fine about it all…’s just kind of caught up with me. I need one evening to go out, alone, so I can think and finish up and we’ll be good to go. Maybe tomorrow night…..Does anyone else feel this stress or pressure? Normally I don’t, and I can’t quite put my finger on why I’m feeling this way this year. I don’t like it…..don’t want to let it steal my joy. I think you all know how I feel about joy-stealers!

This week we’re gonna focus on baking and doing Christmas-y things. Maybe I’ll post some pictures as we get to it…..may be in a few weeks though with all the stuff needing done. Big plans around here for Christmas morning…..big breakfast to-dos. Its gonna be fun, and yummy, and completely unexpected! I can’t wait…..;)

I bought 2 (yes two!) large turkeys this morning. At $0.79 a pound (stuck ’em in the freezer for later in the new year) I couldn’t pass up the price. I may buy a couple more, we’ll see. I also still need to get one a bit smaller for next Sunday, one a more manageable size for our fryer.

Hope you all have a stress-less week. See you soon!

One Response to Christmas planning and stressing…..

  1. Stacy says:

    Finally, this year, I feel like I can give myself permission to take days off. I have always PUSHED school right up until Christmas EVE in some cases. I don’t ever take days off. And for some reason this year I am willing to drop subjects, etc., to include more family fun. Maybe because I see Stewart aging? Maybe because I see women my age failing physically from cancer. Maybe because I am mellowing with age? I don’t know.
    I will think of you this week while I am enjoying the busy-ness.
    Have a Merry Christmas, Wendy!
