Are you feeling the stress yet? Buying or making gifts, wrapping the gifts, decorating the house, slipping in a party or two. oh yes, the Christmas cards need to be written & mailed too...along with the packages headed out of town. Those who know me are aware that Christmas and everything to do with it makes me Happy.... I love to decorate, entertain friends & family, and sometimes find it a bit overwhelming as I believe many of you do too. This year I promised myself to "Chill a bit" and do things slowly. Plan ahead and start each day with a small project. I can bake a bit, wrap a bit, write cards and decorate a bit....There is plenty of time before that big day. I baked today for an exchange I forgot about... * I guess I was so relaxed I forgot to put that one on my calendar... Cookies made easy.. Details for Betty Crocker to the rescue posted on "this hens a cookin". One of my Christmas gift purchases arrived UPS today and that relieved another stress, I have learned that online shopping sometimes really saves time & with coupons & discounts I am within my Christmas budget.. So I can relax and enjoy the next few days... did I mention My husband has a Birthday next week ? Just one more thing on the list and we are going to go out for a quiet dinner.. leaving me more time to bake for the holidays. did I forget anything... Probably but I still have 15 days...and a list that is getting shorter... I think..
