The Christmas Crunch!

Oh my goodness, it's less than two weeks until Christmas and I still have projects to finish, cards to write, cookies to bake, decorating to do, gifts to buy, wrap and mail. I'm starting to think that I may have to give up sleeping just so I can get it all done! Is anyone else feeling the Christmas crunch?

I'm with you!

Millie said...

Yup! Me too!

I'm doing OK--just cards to finish. Our holiday stress improved when our families agreed NOT to exchange names--we buy gifts for only our own children and grandchildren.
Instead, we contribute what we would have spent to a worthy organization or two.

Our stress level is reduced, and we're giving to someone who REALLY needs something.
I enjoy Christmases much more now.

Tell you what...you don't have to finish my Christmas quilt until Orthodox Christmas on January 7th. That gives you two extra weeks -- doesn't that help your stress level? : )

I hear ya!! This morning I was so absolutely stressing over the unfinished things...and then I thought, hmmmmm this is not getting it done...I just needed to get busy, and so I have, LOL!! Quite the break Anya is cutting you with the gifted quilt...WOW a whole extra two weeks, what a great friend :>)!! Have a weekend that achieves lots of goals!

Lets put the whole Christmas thing on hold for 6 months, what do you think? Any good?

It dos come fast, doesn't it! No worries, all will get done in time.

I'm with you! Cards are almost done - no pictures in them this year. Cookies may not get baked at all. Shopping is coming along - nothing wrapped or mailed.

And what am I doing tomorrow? Going to a rug guild luncheon and then will stitch or knit the afternoon away and enjoy every minute of it. Somehow enough of it will get done!

Jacque said...

I totally understand! I have so much I want to get done and such little time! Its time to prioritize! :o)
Merry Christmas!

Get your skates on girl :-)
I have not done the cards either. But then I have only received one so far too. I think that the pressure is on. Hey don't stress it is only one day out of 365.
It'll happen :-)

I still have all that to finish too, but I'm not worried. Am I missing something? Is it that late? It will probably all get done, and if the cards are late, that's not the worst thing. Maybe I need to "get my skates on," that cracked me up!

Ummm...YES!!!! I'm feeling the crunch too. Can you tell by how behind I am in blog reading?!
