Four Days to Go
Yay! I got my Christmas cards in the mail before Christmas!! There are some years they don't go out until closer to New Years, so this is great for me. I also finished the stitching on the alphabet project that I'll be giving at Christmas! (I promise to post a pic after Christmas.) I even got out of the house and did a little Christmas shopping today. I'm almost done with buying gifts, just a little rounding out to do.
I love being prepared and getting things done ahead of schedule, and generally feeling superior. However, my basic nature is a little more fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants! Procrastination is my middle name. I think I need a little more than a push to actually get things accomplished. And raising seven children, with all the duties that entails, raises my adrenaline quite a bit. But it's quite a lot to just get through the day and getting extras done, like Christmas, pushes my procrastinating spirit to the limit. Progress has been made - I haven't been up past midnight Christmas Eve wrapping gifts for several years!
