Ok I seriously feel like I blinked and Thanksgiving is here NEXT WEEK. And with it being late this year Christmas will be here even sooner! There’s one less week between the two holidays.
Christmas is now 34 days away/
I’m usually not one to stress over that stuff. I LOVE Christmas and usually can’t wait to get my tree up, go shopping, spend time with family, etc. This year I am having a panic attack thinking about how I’m going to get everything done in time and still ENJOY it.
Work and life have been as crazy as ever (do you guys ever get tired of hearing me say that?) I feel like I haven’t had enough time for my family or friends lately. My house is a Disaster with a capital D.
As much as I love this time of year, it is always so busy and so rushed.
Between birthday parties, Thanksgiving, work Christmas parties, family events, decorating, and the like, I am wondering when I am going to get to enjoy time with MY little family.
I’m hoping that once Thanksgiving passes, Robbie, Hayden, and I can take some time to relax and get excited for Christmas. I’m so excited for Hayden to experience the holidays this year. Last year he was too young to really get into it, besides ripping the wrapping paper. I can’t wait to see his reaction to Santa (I secretly love the pictures of kids who are terrified on Santa’s lap) and to start some traditions with him that I enjoyed as a child, as well as some new ones.
How do you all manage the craziness of the holidays?
