i’ve shopped, wrapped and planned yet I am still unorganzied. that’s ok thought because i am not drowning in chaos just dipping my toes.
i’m under no illusion that just because it is a holiday, perfect is going to appear. i subscribe to the notion that perfect is overrated. i’m siding with this thought.

i will be out there with the harried masses getting my last gift sorted ( its for my husband)why is it last minute? i know him the best, so why is it so tough to get his present? clearly one of my many failings. oops!
so i am going to dig deep and vow to enjoy:
- standing in a long line
- the silliness of the parking lot
- rude people (feel for them because they are not happy)
- cleaning my house for company
- the grocery store shop (because I forgot more than a few things)
if i enjoy this, i can’t be stressed out.
embrace the silliness of Christmas and ignore the rudeness, people who forget to drive and the invevitable line-up. you may put yourself out there in the craziness but only you control how you react to it.
smile and enjoy. good luck out there.
