We take turns each year putting up the angel

So how are you doing?  Are you going crazy about now thinking you will never get it all finished in 1 week?

Does your List of To Do’s look more like this?

1) Christmas Cards to send out

2) Buy Christmas Gifts

3) Wrap Christmas Gifts

4) Plan Christmas eve Dinner

5) Plan Christmas Day meals

6) Make Christmas Cookies

7) Think about planning my events

Or does it look more like this?
1) Christmas Cards to send out

2) Buy Christmas Gifts

3) Wrap Christmas Gifts

4) Plan Christmas eve Dinner

5) Plan Christmas Day Meals

6) Make Christmas cookies

If your list is the first one…then you more than likely are “freaking out” right now, aren’t you?  How will I get it done? I should never go to sleep this week because I am going to be out shopping all week, etc.

You need to get your calendar and SCHEDULE when you are going to do each thing. Seriously.  Write it in!  It will help to calm you down so that you will realize there IS time to get it all done.  OR it will help you to realize with what you are hoping to get accomplished won’t happen because it is unrealistic for your situation.  But either way it will help put things into perspective for you.

Would you like to see my list?

1) Christmas cards sent out (But just yesterday)

2) Christmas shopping done (But I have stocking stuffers, my husband likes to help w/ those..that is tonight)

3) Wrap Christmas gifts  – Sunday and Monday

4) Plan Christmas Eve Dinner

5) Plan Christmas Day Meals

6) Make Christmas Cookies – Scheduled for tomorrow.

See? I don’t have everything done.  But I do know how and when I am going to complete each thing…so I can relax and enjoy the festivities.

How are you doing?
