72 days & counting...

If you don't know what is 72 days away then you are like me - clueless. Or you might be the kind of person that was ready two months ago. That means you are now my arch nemesis. I joke. Sorta.

The event I'm talking about - CHRISTMAS.

Can you believe it?! Christmas is only 72 days away and I haven't bought the first gift.

In fact I haven't even given any thought to what gifts I need. And even worse, I've gone over my calendar and every Saturday until December is committed to something.

Every. Single One.

So I may or may not have been freaking out about it last night around the 3AM mark.



I need to get busy. In a total non-sexual way of course. (Sorry S!)

There are lists to make, numbers to crunch and much, much shopping to do in between all my other commitments.

Hold me. Please.

I was trying to remain in denial over the impending holiday season. Every year I hope to be more prepared, but I see it will not happen this year.... again.

You just stressed me out. Thanks!

On one hand, I'm usually in way better shape by this time, but on the other, I've really pared down my list this year - so I have a lot fewer people to buy for. I haven't done a thing, either, but I think I'm gonna be ok. I think we're all gonna be ok.

I have come to realize I am a week before Christmas shopper. I do give it thought prior to that, but don't hit the store until then. We do decorate the house the Friday after Thanksgiving and enjoy the season though.

My kids came running, I was laughing so hard. That cat is hilarious!

I haven't given much thought to Christmas either, but I'm going to have to. I was just paid to make 5 sock monkeys for someone to give as Christmas gifts, at least they are thinking ahead!

Don't hit me but I'm nearly done with Christmas shopping.

I hit the after summer toy sale at Target and got a ton for 75% off. So the kids are basically done.

And Tom already told me what he wants so I'm good there too.

I have normally already started Christmas shopping by now and I havent yet this year. I dont even have a clue what Im getting for my girls or anyone else for that matter. Im still trying to get through Halloween stuff!

::holds Brandy while rocking back and forth:: everything will be ok I promise, breathe :)

I am in total denial that the holidays are even coming at all...

Shannon said...

I know! Where has this year gone?!

Seriously. It has flown by.


Um... and don't hit me, either. But I ususally start my Christmas shopping on December 26th... for next year's Christmas. Yeah, I'm one of those people. I try to be done with my holiday shopping by the first week of December!

DysFUNctional Mom said...

This is the second post I've read tonight about Christmas! STOP IT!! I can't think that far in advance!
BUT...I do already have one gift purchased. Neener neener!

CaraBee said...

I never even start shopping until about two weeks before. Even that is early. Most of my gifts are purchased mere days before Christmas. I know, I'm the worst procrastinator.

The Royal Family said...

Ok, so on such a tight budget this year we have a few things for A already and that's all she gets,... nothing to get a baby that has everything her sister had at this age so we have one gift in mind for her. As far as family goes no one wants to shop ahead like me so I don't get to get lists from them until later on which irks me. AND then there is the gifts you've ordered already from a family member that SHE doesn't find important so she still hasn't made them or even begun. GRRRRRRRRRRRR......... thanks for bringing up this topic and ticking me off!

ModernMom said...

I wish I had never read this post (but I do love you). I now realize how woefully unprepared I am.
