I always sit there, next to my pile of crumbs and unwrapped gifts, dumbfounded. I know I was busy, but why isn't anything done?? And didn't I start Christmas prep in early November?
Or maybe there is enough to do that all the extras like crumb removal and wrapping can wait. I fall into my "only what is necessary" habits, leaving what can wait for last. Christmas movies become necessary. Dinner with the family jumps to the front of the line. I bask in all the Christmas glory and wish for more than just a few weeks of this glorious holiday season.
Tonight, I baked up Rudolph Cupcakes for my daughter's class. I packaged up little gifts for teachers and I watched the Grinch. It was heavenly.
And yet the crumbs remain. I guess they'll have to wait. Maybe I can brush them onto the deck for Santa's Reindeer. By then there should be plenty.
Happy weekend everyone. Get that shopping done!
