Why does Christmas and the holiday season never seem quite as calm as it looks in all of the pictures and movies? Before I was an adult, I used to think of Christmas as a time of relaxation, peace, quiet and happiness. But it seems like in trying to achieve that comes craziness and chaos.
Christmas is NEXT week already, with Christmas eve being just 7 days away. I wish I could say that I’m ready and prepared but I’m afraid it’s quite the opposite.
I have a long list of things to do before next week. I have some last minute shopping to get done (I swear next year I want it all done by Thanksgiving), some baking to do for a neighborhood cookie exchange that I organized, and a couple of appointments to get to. I would reschedule, but I always try to make an appointment for leg waxing in Huntington Beach BEFORE Christmas, because it saves me a lot of time not having to shave during the craziness that the last week in December and first week of January brings.
What’s on your list of things to do before Christmas?
