The December Rush

It feels like Christmas Day and its only the first week of December, even though it is a balmy 72 degrees. I am in full holiday stressed out mode. My annual Christmas trees from Lowe's are being sprinkled throughout the garden and my mental exercise of..."did I use white lights last year or color?" is giving my brain a workout. 

There is the annual urgency to get everything done before my birthday which is next week (ugh)! I have a theory that if I get everything done I will be relaxed. If it will be any day, surely it will be my birthday. This theory is just like the yellow legal pad theory: you are never finished at the last line of the page you just TURN the page and it starts again. I know that the rule of "if this, then that" is an illusion just like my yellow legal pad theory. Well, this year I want it to be different. This holiday season I want to ignore the list. I want to feel the moments, not just the stress. Perfection is overrated, real life is not. Perfect joy. Have fun. Enjoy it.

 

Now, back to Christmas list. Seriously, do any of these lights work? Oh, and I forgot the poinsettas...
