Stressed that is? Should I be stressed? Or should I be doing something that I'm not?
I've been reading all over Facebook about everyone getting all their Christmas shopping done, and even wrapping their presents already, and their Christmas cards done and probably mailed out too!!!! I was really started to get STRESSED out about not getting on the ball.
But - FOR ME - i decided to just RELAX about it all. I will get it all done. Sure there is a lot to get done, but I want to enjoy the days and enjoy the season. I get so annoyed at the commercialism of Christmas, stores started selling decorations a LONG time ago, places are already decorating for Christmas. For Pete's sake!!!! Settle down a little!
I like to enjoy fall - Thanksgiving, and our anniversary. (it's our 5 year anniversary, so we're going to live it up big :) ) (in our own simple little way hehehehe)
Maybe come December I will wish i did more ahead of time. But it really doesn't take me that long to send out my Christmas cards. (like one night of ordering them, and 2 nights of addressing and labeling them) the present buying is just a matter of brainstorming and buying and then mailing out or wrapping. No Big Deal, right? :)
Christmas can be a really busy time of year, but I want to enjoy it still. I want to NOT be frantic and do it simple. Enjoy decorating the house, enjoy all the extra baking and party-going. And especially i want to enjoy Fall!
Should I be stressed out about Christmas already?????
Everyone is different and everyone has busy lives in different areas. It would stress me out too much to start doing things already for way longer time. Other's like to have it done so they don't not worry about it later. So to each their own. But I decided for ME - to sit back, blog a little, read a few books with the boys, smell a little fall candle, go for a run, and face the Christmas Chaos after our anniversary.
p.s. I hope I don't regret this. :)
p.s.s. no that picture is not taken from me, I googled an image, but it is fall in CO :)
