Christmas certainly does make everything more busy.

At work, I did some online shopping on my lunch hour. Then hurried up to get all my work done in time to go to a tenant Christmas party at which I won a PRIZE! (A mug and a book, so I'm not freaking out, but this IS the second time I've won a draw in the past while. Chanceuse!)

After tutoring tonight, I came right home and continued my christmas baking. I actually made 3 things tonight. And cleaned up afterwards.

Pretty impressive!
But that's why I'm still up at 11:30pm -- past my bedtime!

Tomorrow night I have a Christmas get-together with a friend of mine. Hence, the baking frenzy.

I have really felt Christmas sneak up on me.

I don't seem to have a lot of time for Christmas shopping. I think it's because I missed the One of a Kind Show, where I often buy my best gifts. Sad. And then the homemade back-up gifts take time and I just have been too busy to get my act together!

Too bad, I absolutely LOVE Christmas. I love Christmas shopping. I love Christmas decorating. But I haven't managed to put the lights on the tree yet. All I've got up is my wreath on my door.

Since when did Cathy become Christmas-dysfunctional?

Of course, you're right. I'm much happier when I just relax and let things happen.

I try to grab those moments when I can.

I'm so happy I have a job that I enjoy. It means that at least all parts of my day aren't stressful.

Today I decorated the office. Fun!

And I put the lights on the tree.

And made another batch of cookies.
