Where the hell did the time go?

I started off the 2013 holiday season with a plan!

Unfortunately that plan went to shit some time back in November.

I was going to make some crafty gifts for my friends.

I was going to do my Christmas shopping EARLY!

I was going to mail all of my cards by the 15th.

I was going to help mom decorate the tree that we actually can't put up because my cat is insane.

I was going to do all of this because I wanted the week before our office closes for the holidays to be as calm as possible.


Clearly I was delusional.

I'm not done my Christmas shopping.

I'm not done making my crafts.

Shipping Internationally is insane.

The tree isn't up because yeah, my cat's crazy.

Oh and work is so incredibly busy right now that I'm lucky to find time to pee. 

Exhale Ash.  The holidays are FUN remember?

Does anyone else find the holidays incredibly stressful?  It can't just be me?

And is everyone on track with their shopping/decorating etc?  Feel free to rub it in if you're on track and I'm not.




  1. I'm soooooooooooo not on track. Everything has been so much crazier this year than... Basically ever.

    1. Work is usually busy this time of year so I anticipated that. I didn't anticipate getting a cold and I didn't anticipate it being THIS busy. I'm so behind.

  2. I'm so having SUCH a hard time this year! Our cards aren't made. Gifts aren't bought. Trees aren't all up. The apartment is a disaster. Brian had one plague. Now I have another. And Christmas is LESS THAN 2 weeks away.

    1. I know. Being sick doesn't help, I know. But work is so crazy and I've been getting home so late that getting more done than eating and showering is a challenge. I hope you feel better soon hun.

  3. I'm mostly jealous of people who really celebrate Christmas, because I feel left out of all the spirit. But when it comes to things like presents, cards, and travel, I'm kind of glad Christmas is "just a day off" for my fam :)
