  • No time left for double-checking

    I'm starting to get a little worried. OK, to be honest, I'm getting a lot worried. Christmas is just 22 days away, and I'm nowhere near ready for it.

    We do have the Christmas tree and a few decorations up. But Christmas cards haven't even been bought yet, let alone addressed or mailed. Barely half of the gifts have been purchased, and not the first one has been wrapped.

    I'm ashamed. Usually I'm much more prepared than this. I like being organized, with calendars and lists and such. But it just hasn't happened this year.
