It’s crazy how I can get so far behind in the things I need to accomplish before the holidays.  I just finished writing my Christmas cards.  I had made the video for them but so many other videos needed to go up before that one, it’s just a mess.  I’m trying not to panic, but I have to wrap all of the gifts for the Christmas family and there are a lot of them.  I try to make it easy on myself by buying laundry baskets for each member and putting cleaning supplies and things that don’t really need to be wrapped in the baskets.  This year, our family needed so many basic necessities that I bought Rubbermaid storage tubs for each of them and plan on putting things inside those that I won’t need to wrap as well.  I’m really disorganized.  I haven’t even ordered the gift for my closest friend yet.  Now that’s not good.  I’m custom making a pillow with a photo on it of her dog and I’m not sure how long it takes to make it, but I’m sure it won’t be here for the holidays.  I’ve been trying to order it for three weeks, but every time I try to upload a photo, Snapfish tells me the resolution on the photo I’m using is too low.  Geez, I have no idea how to fix that.  So Rich has been trying to find another photo and I’m trying to come up with alternative ideas for her gift.  I have another friend that I want to make a coaster set out of Scrabble letters as she loves Words with Friends.  I have no idea why I can’t seem to get them made, but it’s just one more thing I haven’t accomplished.  I think taking a vacation in the middle of December really puts my Christmas organization into the crapper.  I am trying not to panic, but there’s a chance I might go nuts before Sunday.  You never know.  I can’t imagine how people get things done when they have to buy and wrap gifts for a lot of people.  I have a friend that has 36 family members (her children, their spouses and grandchildren) that she buys for.  I can’t even begin to imagine how she gets that done.  And she’s always finished and wrapped long before I’ve even thought about wrapping.  I need to take lessons from her on time management, or better yet, just give her my list and let her run with it..
