Are You Ready?

by Jen on December 16, 2011

Happy Friday!  Another week has flown by.  Normally I’m okay with the week going by quickly, but this time of year, I really need things to sloooooow down.  I’ve got so much to do and no time to do it.

For example, I’m sitting down to write this post…and I have no idea what to write about.  All I can think about is how much I have to accomplish before Christmas.

There are still a couple of gifts I need to buy.  When am I going to do this?  You are out of your mind if you think I’m going to take the kids to the crazy mall.  Sure, I could go on the weekend when Mark is home.  But…

I’ve got baking to do.

This is what I plan on baking on Saturday:

Chocolate Mounds (Mark’s must-have)

Sugar Cookies (for the boys to decorate)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Mars Bars

Wish me luck on getting that all done in one day! *insert hysterical laugh here*

On Sunday, I hope to start wrapping gifts.  I have to do it on Sunday because 1) the boys will be at their grandparent’s for the day, and 2) the boys are at their grandparent’s for the day.

Have I mentioned that I hate wrapping??!  It probably doesn’t help that I’m terrible at it.  Terrible.  I couldn’t fold nice corners if my life depended on it.

Every year I say to myself that Christmas should be simple and relaxing.  And every year it’s not.  Maybe one of these years I’ll finally do it.  Maybe.

Question: Are you ready for Christmas?  Do you try to keep the holidays simple or do you end up going crazy like me?
