In 2008, I posted about how I wasn't ready for Christmas - on December 16!
In 2009, I showed my Christmas reality as of December 23! True confession - that tree was never decorated. *hangs head*
In 2010, I posted my "last" post on December 6 (That only lasted 4 months or so - LOL!), so you never heard about how I decorated my tree just a day or 2 before Christmas!
So why should I be surprised? Well because by this time, there are usually *some* decorations appearing in my house and I will know what outfits we'll wear for our family pic and I'll be listening to Christmas CDs every day! None of these things have happened! I was horrified to just now realize that I have not played a single Christmas CD yet! *sniff*
What is going on??? Life, I guess. In the last 2 weeks or so I...went out-of-town for a funeral, hosted Thanksgiving, served on a jury, caught up with homeschooling, and attempted (but failed) to catch up on basic household chores. And our Christmas plans are up in the air at the moment. I think my brain hasn't felt ready for the Christmas
Oh I forgot to mention - we DO have icicle lights on the outside of the house because my hubs rocks! And we DO have Christmas gifts for the kiddo. So that's something.
I think this Saturday is free so maybe I can get caught up to where I want to be!
So, how many of you have all your decorating, shopping, and card-sending done? How many of you dare to confess that you're as behind as me (if there are *any*)?
Of course, my family knows that even if there are no decorations, or goodies, or pictures, or cards, or music, or gifts - it does not take away from the joy in our hearts and the reason for the season, Jesus!
Have a blessed, joy-filled, and productive day friends!!
