Are you? Of course we aren't! If we were, we would just have to find something else to do. It's just the way we are.
DH and I went to Sam's earlier today. I managed to talk him into going into Garden Ridge which just happens to be next door. I shouldn't say I talked him into it. He really enjoys Christmas very much and wants to be involved. I wonder if it is because he secretly wants to keep me in check?! We bought a few little things for the house that I was looking for last year. We haven't really done any gift shopping. Two years ago I had all the shopping finished by the first weekend in December. I was so proud of how organized and efficient I was. A week later, DH asked when we were going on our annual marathon shopping day. In all my proficiency, I forgot that DH had really looked forward to doing most of our gift shopping on one day in the midst of the craziness. Well, I didn't really forget, I just didn't realize how much he looked forward to all that. Lesson learned.
So I don't get all my shopping finished early, but I can get all the other stuff done that I always do by myself. Like the Christmas cards, stockpiling food for the many larger meals I have to cook, baking lists, etc. I have my cards finished already. We usually put a picture of us in with them but this year we decided to put a picture of my Dad in with them. Dad passed away in the middle of September. No one had a recent picture of him so that is what we will do.
