WHAT THE HECK?????

Four more days until Christmas... I have not done a thing..... NOT A THING!!! Not avoiding it, boycotting it, or mourning it. Just have been too sidetrack with the nesting preparations for Tate and working comp time saving for the maternity leave.

  • No decorations.... well, I did slap up a red berry wreath on the front door the day after Thanksgiving. This counts, doesn't it???
  • Christmas cards not done...
  • Baking???? Oh man I love the baking but I have really scaled down this year. I will be doing only my Gussy's Goop in bags for neighbors. NO fudge, English toffee, caramels, black licorice, What??? I said not FUDGE??? I will rethink the fudge.
  • I have shopped, wrapped and mailed to Iraq, New Jersey, Minnesota and Florida. This much I have done.

So those who usually get cards, treats, gifts from Me.... I promise, there will be next year when I have another little person to consider. Christmas cards with a family picture... decorations to delight.... baking to share.

Happy Holidays to all!!!

I haven't done cards this year either.
I'm nesting also---we're allowed!!!

So funny! I just wrote this exact thing to a friend not 2 minutes ago! Not boycotting, have just been super busy! Really hoping to change that a bit over the next couple of days. Even a couple of decorations would make such a nice difference. Must change that tomorrow.

Looking forward to watching you celebrate the holidays next year with Tate in tow! Oh my...the fun that you'll have!!!

I can't wait to see your halls decked next year (or the little girl that will be residing in your house!).

Yes, what is gussy goop? I'm in the same boat as you this year, no cards made and no baked treats either. Have a wonderful Christmas even without the fudge!

I really let Christmas slip through my fingers too. It came and went to fast.
