Is panic and frustration part of the holiday fun? If so, I’m in for a boring season!

Holiday image by Richard WeisserUnlike many years in the past, I started my holiday shopping and decorating early and I am essentially “done.” I did a little here and there, and now the house is ready and all I have left to do is mail out my cards which are already stamped and addressed.

But instead of feeling smug and satisfied, I’m really quite bored. It seems that not having the underlying pangs of panic takes away from some of the holiday “excitement!”

There is such a thing as being over-prepared. It’s not my nature. Back in school, so long ago, my assignments were finished minutes before they were due. I have always possessed a last-minute personality that pushed deadlines t0 the limit.

Even today, my days are prioritized by urgency, with the most pressing matters getting attention. Working under pressure makes you feel alive!

Maybe I’ll get lucky and one of the cats will knock the tree over. Now THAT would be exciting!

I usually have my shopping done early, but I have yet to decorate this year. That will be a project I can tackle soon.

Richard, I'm trying to do my shopping early, but every trip out I wind up getting stuff for me!  OK, now I have to go up to the attic and look for my tree.

Just wanted to report back that we put up the tree this evening and the kitten has already tried to climb it twice! Sigh. ~Rita

Richard - I am just starting now so I feel like I have it under control.  Pretty amazing that you have everything done prior to Thanksgiving.  However, I need some snow, cold crisp air, Christmas caroles and a tree with lights before I really get into the spirit.
