December Madness.....


I am so sad that this month is so crazy that I do not have enough time to do the things I most want to do!!! Why do we let ourselves get so crazy this time of year? I hope to calm down a bit and hopefully enjoy the fun things happening this month. If I don't slow down a bit, I know the month will be over before I know it!

So here is my own version of the 12 Days of Christmas and I will call it the 12 days of December Madness...here we go :)

On the 12th day of December my busy schedule said to me...start work on all the gifts you are making and lose those 7 pounds so that your bridesmaid dress will fit!!!!
On the 11th day of December my busy schedule said to me...buy a Yankee swap gift and make an appetizer for your holiday party.
On the 10th day of December my busy schedule said to me...make 40 song books and organize a caroling party at your local nursing home and then drive to 90 minutes for a playdate.
On the 9th day of December my busy schedule said to me...clean the house for your holiday playgroup and then go out for drinks with your BF.
On the 8th day of December my busy schedule said to me...stuff 48 Christmas stockings for the needy children in the area.
On the 7th day of December by busy schedule said to me...attend the bridal brunch and drive home from the wedding.
On the 6th day of December my busy schedule said to me....get your hair and make-up done, look pretty in the wedding.
On the 5th day of December my busy schedule said to me...get your nails done and then drive down to the wedding!!!!
On the 4th day of December my busy schedule said to me....go to a Polar Express Party and then drive 45 minutes for a spray tan.
On the 3rd day of December my busy schedule said to me...organize and run a Preschool Fair for your town after finishing up your holiday shopping.
On the 2nd day of December my busy schedule said to me...have Park the elf make his big debut, wrap all of your presents and pack up for the weekend.
On the 1st day of December my busy schedule said to me....get presents for the elf to give, attend a very long meeting and make sure all the Christmas cards are mailed.

Okay so I know that wasn't even close to the real song ;) I am sure we all have crazy schedules like this (maybe even crazier). So please remember to enjoy the season and take time to have fun with the little stuff.

I am exhausted!

Slow down - the madness of the 26th through the 31st day of December is approaching fast enough. Then the real fun starts on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of January!

I love the busyness of the season! I like having a deadline. I'm crazy like that!

Good luck!

I haven't even gotten x-mas cards. Too much stuff going on to really get a grip - something had to give.
Maybe they will go out the first week of Jan and I will blame it on the post man? A girl can wish.
Good luck!!
