Are We Overwhelmed Yet?

The pile of presents to wrap is growing and the Christmas cards I ordered have arrived, but I have yet to write the Christmas letter. I’ve attended three Christmas get together this week, and my refrigerator is looking pretty empty because I’ve yet to get the grocery store this week. It seems like the more I check off of my list, the more I have to do!

How are you doing on YOUR “to-do list” this month?

  1. My to do list is a mile long and here I am sitting on the computer because I am overwhelmed! I feel your pain… Christmas time is way too busy!

  2. At my son's preschool, we can't bring homemade stuff, so I get off easy and just pick up cookies/cupcakes at Target πŸ™‚

  3. Oh wow, you're hosting? That IS big! My list is huge because like an idiot, I decided to MAKE a lot of my gifts this year… and have yet to get started. πŸ™‚

  4. I'm starting to cross a lot of things off my list! Christmas cards out…check! Baking done, check! Kids gifts bought, check! Now I'm just working on finishing up the stained glass ornaments I'm making for folks (12 total). Then wrapping, and I'll be done! BTW, That's why I haven't in the blogosphere as much lately…. πŸ˜‰

  5. The very first thing on my list is: make a to-do list for all the stuff you need to do before Christmas without going all barmy and mad!

  6. My to do list is going well – only 2 more kids to buy presents for and one work party to go for – I only have to make spinach dip.Keep your eye on the prize – having family over means 500-

  7. Hey Ginny,,,I'm behind on everything and just resigned to the fact that while my tree is up with lights, it will not have any other decorations on it. I'm compromising. πŸ™‚ Is that even compromising? πŸ™‚

  8. Oh girl! I am right there with you! Just ordered, yes I said ordered, the cards. Did half of the grocery shopping, we have guests coming to stay for a week…a week! Have about 6 presents left to grab, and then teacher and therapists gifts (6). So still a ton left. But my wrapping is done! I love doing that so I get it done as I go along.

  9. Ginny, you are not alone. I just sent out my cards and just now ordered my husband's gift online. Here's hoping it arrives in time. The one thing on my list I've decided to ignore? Dusting. Hate doing it and even though I hate seeing it, just can't get to it and I'm not going to worry about it. I have presents to wrap. Enjoy your holiday!

  10. For the past two years, I purposfully have not scheduled anything during the two weeks leading up to Christmas otherwise I So this year, I'm actually doing pretty well. I have one gift left … his is always a hard one.

  11. I JUST finished ordering presents yesterday, but since I am so late I have to send them to my mom's house where I'm traveling. The good news is that means I don't have to do any work since I'm a guest! πŸ™‚

  12. We are only allowed to bring store bought treats. I don't like the rule most of the time. Here I sit and still haven't bought Christmas dinner and I have 5 guest coming. I am thinking tacos πŸ™‚
