Count Down to Christmas
Christmas time always panics me when I start thinking about it (oh, about Nov. 1st). How will I ever get everything done? And, I stay in a panic for weeks and then all of a sudden, every gift is wrapped, cookies are made, the house is decorated. I just sort of sheepishly grin. I'd done it again. Panic, panic, panic. Looks like I'd learn. Well, maybe some day.
I got out today to buy the last two of the gifts I needed. I hadn't been gone from home more than ten minutes and the rain started and hours later, it's still coming down. Now that I am back at home I like to listen to the sound of the rain hitting the roof.
There are three more days til the big day. I need to check my list.
All gifts bought YES
All gifts wrapped NO
Cookies made NO
House clean NO
Music playing YES
Lights twinkling YES
My anticipation growing YES
So, it looks like I am running even. Half done, half not. Guess I need to get busy and wrap some gifts, clean the house, make some cookies....
Hmmm. I think I will just listen to the music playing, watch the twinkling lights and listen to the rain. Tomorrow is another day, (oh, that was Scarlet that said that, sorry)
