So relieved to overhear in class this morning that no fewer than three other people were also awake in the middle of the night making to-do lists and fretting over last minute holiday details. Me? I still need to get gifts for my husband and parents. Oh, and our Christmas cards arrived two days ago and I've yet to address a single one. (Let's just start calling them early Valentine's Day cards instead.)
I've tried really hard this season to be more mellow than last year. It's worked so well that I've gotten very little done. Now it's the crush and I'm in there with the rest of humanity, scrambling to make it all work by Wednesday, Christmas Eve.
I still have faith that it will all work out in the end because in the end it's all about faith.
But *next* year I'm going to get an earlier start. No, really.
