Thirteen things I need to do if I want to get to christmas like everyone else...




1- Decorate the freaking apartment!!! DUH!!!, I'm not opposed, I just don't have the time. confused

2- Go shopping for Christmas gifts? I'll do that on Friday and Saturday, I'm suppose to be off on Friday, I'll start!!!

3- Finish writing my freaking Christmas cards!!!! I've started, I just need to finish them!

4- Get in Christmas mood!!! That's very much needed....

5- Get my heart at the right place... Christmas is about Jesus... My heart and day to day preoccupations are far from Him. I know it's sad... everything is soo fast, I need to get back closer to Him

6- Stop worrying, everything will be well...

7- Sleep late on weekends so I can get rested enough to maybe stay up late next week!

8- Did I mention breathe and relax???? drink a bit maybe???

9- I need to spend some quality time with friends, I need it... I miss them.... this weekend for sure!!!

10- Did I mention Christmas shopping? not lingerie shopping, for that, we all know I'm good eh Claudia??? wink

11- Cooking a bit for the Holidays, I've been insanely baking tho.... mrgreen

12- Attend a religious service before mass on Christmas eve!!!!

13- If I wanna do all of this I need to chill, relax, do what I can do and let go of others!!!!!

Good luck with all that! :)

My TT is about family christmas traditions!

Nicholas said...

I hope you get it all done! For one reason and another, Christmas will be very understated here this year. At least that means no cards to send!

Sandy Carlson said...

Breathe, breathe, breathe!

God bless.

I blame myself for leading you into the temptation of the beautiful lingerie. I'll do a few hail mary's will that help??

I have to admit....my current list looks the same as yours. No tree, no cards, some shopping done, no baking....I just don't know what happened to me this year! My Christmas spirit is willing, but the body is weak!!
Hang in there -- it'll all work out as always!
Happy TT!

Ohmygosh - I need to get cracking with #3, 4, 5, and 8 ... but here I am visiting T-13s. Such is life. Christmas Cards may be late (or non-existent) if I don't get an idea soon. Sigh!
Hugs and blessings,

Chelle Y. said...

I want to do that last thing too!

*Rae* said...

Relax & take a break don't over do it or you will be burnt out I puit off baking to the last min here ugh what was I thinking Happy TT & Happy Holidays

The Gal Herself said...

OK, time for deep, cleansing breaths -- in, out, in, out. You are a loving person whose soul is in very good order, so you WILL have a merry Christmas. How can you not, loving the Lord as you do? So just try to kick back and let all this other stuff resolve itself.

Patti said...

I hope you accomplish everything! I'm kinda in the same place you are and occasionally start to freak out. :) Here's to this crazy wonderful season!

Norma said...

Relax. Lots of time left.
