Well, we’re down to under 2 weeks left until the Big Day. I still have yet to go pick out a tree, but at least I have a tree stand now. Borrowed one from the ex. I wonder if she’ll want it back? I borrowed some lights for it too. I imagine that she’ll want those back. I’ve decided to get a real tree, and then get an artificial one after Christmas when they’re all on sale. I just couldn’t justify paying full price for one, knowing that they’d be virtually giving them away in a couple of weeks.
Unfortunately, I still have a few things left to pick up. I know, I know… how did I go from starting so early, to still being in those stores 10 days before Christmas? I got slack. That’s really what it boils down to. I was all psyched about gift giving, and then the wind just blew out of my sails. Now I’m scrambling to pick up a few things before it gets too wacky out there.
I dropped off a whole bunch of Christmas cards this morning. I’m a little short on stamps to the USA so those ones are going to be a tad late. Sorry.
Mum’s Christmas dinner is actually next weekend! I keep getting the date wrong, so we’ll see if I actually make it there or not.
It’s such a hectic time of year.
