A week from today is Christmas Day. I can't believe it. Am I prepared? Pretty much. All of the presents that needed to be shipped have been-although some aren't expected at their destination until the 23rd. The Christmas cards have all been mailed...well, all but one, which needs a letter. I'll write that today and mail it on the way home from work so it'll go out first thing Monday. The tree is up and decorated-although I didn't put many decorations on this year. The manger is also up and filled. So what else needs to be done? The Christmas boxes need to be put back in the attic, I have to finish a gift I'm crafting for a local friend, I need to wrap presents for my folks, local friend, and aunt and uncle, and clean the house. Plus keep up with the daily things. No holiday baking this year. I hope to do some, but it'll be winter baking. Good thing we have long winters, 'cause who knows when I'll get around to it?! Also everything must be completed by Friday, December 23 as, weather willing, I'll be celebrating Christmas Eve with my parents for the first time in 21 years! How about you? Are you ready for Christmas?
