Ten Days Until Christmas: My Random Thoughts
It's ten days until Christmas and so many thoughts are whirling around in my head. Some are expected. Others? Well, you tell me.
Got to ship any remaining gifts today because it's the last day of regular ground shipping. Or maybe, I'll find something on Amazon and send it gift wrapped???? Might be easier.
Oh, but there is the one gift I can't do that way. UPS, here I come.
As for Amazon, what gives. Every year you mess up the wish lists! Our family uses the lists because it's easy, as long as everything goes according to plan. But when it doesn't, you get duplicates or random items that were never on your list to begin with.
Maybe I won't use the lists next year. Yeah, I said that last year.
Then there's the lovely engagement ornament I ordered through Etsy to send to my newly engaged daughter. She received it last night, and I didn't get the reaction from her I expected. Why? It. Was. Not. An. Engagement. Ornament! Nope, they sent one of those "even though you're in heaven" ornaments!!!! Seriously? How far from the mark can we go?
Our eight-year-old dog has suddenly started messing with Christmas decorations. She's never bothered them in year's past. Weird.
And I've caught her on our bed-where she's not allowed-several times.
There's not enough time.
I want to rest.
When am I going to bake cookies?
Why does everyone want to move the kids' appointments to the holidays?
Don't we have enough going on?
So, I'm going to take a deep, cleansing breath, maybe sniff some calming essential oils, and dive into the fray...uh, I mean joy of the season.
Only joking everyone. I love this time of year, but I really need it to slooooowwwwww down!
Hope you're finding some joy!
