If Only...

there was more time....just a couple more weeks built in to this time between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Does anyone else feel like they are at the starting gate and somebody just said, "GO!"??

There is shopping to do, cookies to be baked, parties to be attended, presents to be wrapped, decorating to be done, cards to be addressed and mailed...

I could use an assistant!  Let's face it...couldn't most of us??  I took a few minutes yesterday to look through our recent photos (before the snowstorm!)...it is absolutely amazing how fast the seasons go by. Doesn't it kind of seem like we just put all of last year's Christmas decorations away??

And then...on December 26th, we will be looking at each other ... going ... "It's over already??"

I think I am feeling a bit more pressure this year because I know that I have a week's worth of oral surgery to go through and I know that is going to make a huge dent in my ability to accomplish everything I want to get done!!

So let's all try to slow it down and try to enjoy the next four weeks...

The race is ON!

Hi Jeanne!! I was thinking that exact same thing yesterday, and no doubt it will cross my mind again today too! Ready or not, here Christmas comes...I hope I'm ready... Take care!!

Feeling smug here as we have done just about all our shopping and sent out our cards etc. Can't stand the last minute rush. Have a super Saturday.

Best wishes Molly

Sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery. That probably does make you feel pressed for time. We are loving the snow at our house.

Yes I do. This holiday season seemed to come up so fast. And before we know it, it'll be Christmas.

"So let's all try to slow it down and try to enjoy the next four weeks..."

Amen!

Loved your video! Beautiful photos of the change in season. And you and your husband make a lovely-looking couple!

Have a wonderful weekend, dear lady. And the best to you with your oral surgery this month.

X to you and the girlz!

a couple years ago I gave up on trying to get it all done. I slowed down, cut back and started enjoying the season a whole lot more

No pressure going on over here. We will be alone in the desert basking in the warmth of the sun, and just enjoying our day together.

Hi there, I think this month will fly by eve faster because Thanksgiving was so late. I'm still waiting on Christmas cards to get here so I can mail them out. Hope you have a very relaxing Sunday.
Hugs, Noreen & Hunter

I am trying to dial it back....and enjoy the season by getting things done earlier in the year (cards, crafting) and doing the things I enjoy (decorating and baking) as the season begins!
