I'm Wrapping As Fast As I Can!!!

Ho...ho...ho...I knew this would happen...
Just because it always does...
I never learn.

On Monday the entire week seemed and felt endless.
The days were long.
There was plenty of time to play, wrap, watch movies...have fun!!!

Now it's Wednesday.
I am not finished with anything.
I am still waiting for stuff to come so that I can wrap it.
I have not yet sent out any Christmas cards.
There are four stacks of neatly folded laundry in the midst of my family room floor.
We are so busy running out to dinner and watching movies that neither one of us feels like carrying it upstairs.

My fun has changed from guilt free to full of guilt.
Sort of... and nails.
Then Target for Target stuff.
Then "Little Italy" for a bowl of pasta.
After pasta we drive around to look at the Christmas lights.
It's what we do...

Tomorrow we go to the "big mall"... it is far away and it has the closest Nordstrom's in it...we do this every year for last minute gifts.

We go as early as it opens...we zip through...we zip out and chill out at lunch somewhere.


How are you feeling on this Wednesday...exactly three days before Christmas?

  1. Oh, the week is definitely flying by.

    I got my hair done yesterday by my daughter, the stylist; today my manicurist is coming.

    Yes, she comes to my house.

    Which means I have to thoroughly clean before she arrives! lol

    I'm pretty much done with that...and now I've been messing around with my blogs again: writing posts, changing headers and themes...stuff.

    I do know how to watch time slither away...hope you get all the fun in, even if you don't get everything else done!

  2. I finally have some Christmas spirit. I baked cookies all morning because our son and nephew are coming tomorrow!

  3. That 's good, Kathy!!!
    I think I had a bit of the blues today...but all better now!!!

  4. I make it easier on myself with the pretty holidays bags, and colorful tissue papers. So much easier for gifts, of course, unless it's a big box that needs to be wrapped.
    It's so nice that I don't have to do anything in my apartment, because all the holiday times are being spent at friends' and at family!
    Holidays do get hectic, but it's so well worth all the gifts, and happy times!
    Merry Christmas to you Patty, Dennis, and Lucy!

    Take care and have a gr8 day :-)

  6. I am right there with you! I felt like I had a lot of time to finish everything- but where did the time go? I still have to wrap and do Christmas cards. I am trying to squeeze in all kinds of holiday fun and trying to keep up with regular chores. I guess in the end it will all get done. Tonight I will have to write cards while I watch my holiday movie- or wrap druing it. :)


  7. If it's not done by now, it's not going to get done. Have a very merry Christmas.

  8. Thank you so much, Elisabeth!!!

    The same wishes to you!!!

  9. and I are on the same page...we are going to watch that Planet of the Apes as our Christmas
