Cripes! It’s Christmas Again!

When did it get here?

I must have had my back turned. But, jeez Louise, Christmas is here, breathing down our necks with curling ribbon and egg nog punch. I think I’d better slow down and try to enjoy it.

That’s the thing about Christmas and New Years. Before I can grab a glass of wine and contemplate the beauty of the twinkling lights, it’s over. So today, I’m really going to focus on trying to enjoy the holiday. Right after I wrap a few more presents and do some baking. See? Never done.

But today I am going to make myself sit and soak up some cheer. Put on some Christmas music, light some holiday candles and, heck, I might even put on a Christmas sweater before I miss the chance to wear it…if I can find it in my closet that needs a serious clean out. I don’t know about you, but there just aren’t enough days in the week for everything I have to do.

But today, I won’t worry about it. Does it really matter if there’s a bit of dust on the picture frames scattered around the house? Or that I didn’t make bows for all the presents? Or that there’s a random sock sitting in the corner of the family room? Only my mom will notice anyway.

So, here’s my wish for you. I wish you time to sit and put your feet up. Time to sit in front of a fire and sip hot chocolate. Time to laugh with your loved ones and share memories of Christmas past. Time to ignore the bits of leaf snagged in your carpet and the stubborn stain on your favorite armchair. Time to lick frosting from your fingertips and watch the snow falling onto the heavy boughs of the pine (or for those of us in the South – the dream of it)

Today I’m grabbing myself some Christmas cheer. How will you take your piece of the season?

  1. I agree. Sit down. Put your feet up and enjoy the season because life (and time) has a nasty habit of moving too quickly.

  2. I think I will relax with a cup of hot chocolate tonight.

  3. girl, I think 4 of the 20+ gifts under the tree even have bows on them. the reason they do is because the boy stuck them there. We quit worrying with bows with all the hauling around we have to do. they just fall off.

    Grandma though, she still ribbons and bows and they sure are pretty!

    speaking of presents…I wrapped my last one tonight. Later I’ll wrap more for mom, but mine are D-O-N-E, DONE!

  4. Yep, let’s all relax! I just baked my cake and surprisingly, it was kinda fun. Haven’t pulled out the stand mixer in a while! My red velvet is just in a plain shape – no turkeys or Christmas trees. I’m not as ambitious as Keri.

    Oh, and for bows, I just can’t seem to help myself. The poor little packages just look so lonely and naked without them. I usually cave and make one. I did about half of them this year depending on how much I liked the family member 🙂

  5. Now that the hard part is done, shopping, wrapping, baking, I plan to sit back and watch the fun. Not sure that’s how it will play out, but that’s my plan anyway. LOL

    Merry Christmas you guys!! 🙂
