Guys, there are EIGHT DAYS TO CHRISTMAS. EIGHT DAYS!!!! When the school bus drops my moppets off this afternoon, I have two weeks of pure torture family fun to look forward to. In the meantime….ACK! I’m not ready for any of it. My front room looks like the inside of a FedEx warehouse, there are so many boxes. I don’t have a single gift wrapped, and heck, there are some gifts I still need to buy! It’s pretty easy to sneak a few things in around the babies (who, by the way, are approaching 4 & 2 so I suppose I should stop calling them that), but once the big kids are home – forget it. I brought in some bags from Walmart the other day and spaced on the fact that there were a couple of random gifts in them. Of course, the next thing I know, I hear, “Yay! Shrek 3!” and “Who is this Yahtzee Jr. for??” UGH. I’ve resorted to stashing bags and packages into whatever random corner where I think the kids won’t poke around. (Perhaps I should have considered the vegetable drawer in the fridge or the toothbrush cup…they never touch those!!) I know that I’ll be like a frantic squirrel on Christmas Eve, desperately trying to remember where I hid all my loot. Please tell me that I’m not the only one who isn’t ready. And if you are, please lie about it.
Here are my random 5 things for today:
1) I literally woke up early this morning preoccupied with what what I’m going to wear to my husband’s company dinner tonight. Is there a pill for fashion anxiety?
2) This is what decorating for the holidays looks like at my house:
Oh the indignity!
