The wild, last few days ahead of the big retail holiday are flying by. You got it or you don't- think I only need one more small thing, whew- Cards will be out a tad late, just doing them today. But a package mailed USPS priority on Tuesday late afternoon made it there in about 24 hours. That's amazing!
I have been avoiding Large Department Stores like the plague recently. Even the supermarket lines are crazy. Also the Dollar Tree has been featuring heaping checkout orders infront of me.
Xmas Eve is an unpaid Day Off for me, n I'll have visiting time To deliver a few things. I'm hoping to get to some home baking. Xmas Day- Night I have to work, n I will bring in some candy, peppermints, n a few other things for everyone. After years it has still been tough to get other folks there to bring in things to share. I think everyone should.
When it's all over after New Years n school vaca time, I'll be very relieved. Those will all be busy order days too. This extra rushed holiday stuff on top of working is stressful. I don't really get to enjoy much holiday time. I long for the old days that had more free time to relax on long vacations.
Seems like life's gotten too complicated to keep up with it all. Probably most folks would give up long before I do.
I always play the game as long as I can. Even if it seems a bit futile...
Have a Happy Chanuka and/or A Merry Christmas!
All the above were made from this version.
This was my Dollar Tree bargain window dec this year. I do like glitter, tho zoologically the deer is more a Whitetail than caribou ...
