10 More

My calendar informs me it’s December 15th, so hmmmm, let’s see now, yep ! YEP ! 10 more days until Christmas and yippee !! today !! it gets real. I will turn my car radio to an official holiday station to listen to the delightfully endless variety of holly jolly tunes. I will begin the wrapping of gifts that arrived way too early for me to care if they were wrapped or not. I will organize the menu of just who is bringing what to the eve of the big day. I will prepare my brain for the inevitable trip to the grocery store to grab those last few items. I will debate making more cookies to add to our overload of cookies and desserts … and  … there’s only 10 more days until Christmas !!  dontcha just  ADORE the rush of !! I’ll never get everything done !! and  WHY IN THE WORLD DO I ALWAYS WAIT SO LONG ?!??

!! weeeeee !!

Today also means I’ve given you, who prepare early, enough time to sit back, relax and think about anyone you might have missed on that long list of gift giving. Or maybe you think you should have a just in case someone gives me something and I never gave them a thought backup. Or maybe you have a friend who exclaims !! HELP !! I don’t know what to get so and so !! Or MAYBE you love these stories of mine soooooo much, you want to share these cuties YEAR ROUND  !!
