So why is everyone running around like nuts ripping their hair out?The season is to be enJOYed!!
So I am determinted to enjoy it.
My decorations are minimal. My tree (a real tree, cause that's what Hubby and I like) is up and decorated. I put several decorations with sentimental value around the room. I don't decorate outside because we live in a condo.Decorations.......done.
I started very early asking everyone what they wanted for Christmas, made a list, and shopped online.
I don't do any baking......because no one wants to eat it. Maybe I'll see if I can get my grand daughter over to make some Christmas cookies. Just for fun. 'Cause FUN is the name of the game, right? So baking.............done.
I wrap a little bit every night. No point getting a crick in my neck wrapping for hours and hours.Wrapping...........done.
I love sending out Christmas cards. Hubby and I try to get a nice picture or two when we go away on our adventures. I sit at my computer and make them. They have our names pre-printed on them and I have my mailing labels all set up on my computer to print. Easy and quick.
The Christmas season can be whatever you want to make it. Easy or hard. Anxious or Joyous. The bottom line is....Christmas will come whether you're ready or not. And really.....what are people going to remember? Your perfect tree? Your expensive gifts? Your running around like a nut and going crazy? Or.........the fun and joy and excitement you bring to the season?

(Ya Huh.....That IS Me!)However, there are certain things that you really need to go into the store and check out before you buy. So today, Hubby and I ventured out to do a bit of shopping.
Hubby wanted to do some shopping for moi this morning, so he set out and walked to all his destinations. (Hubby likes to walk a little bit more than I do).In the afternoon, we drove to a distant location for our specialty store item, and on the way back, as luck would have it, we were passing by the exit for the beach. So........
And for our grand finale, Hubby wanted go to TOYS R US! The insanity of it just boggled my mind. But.....Hubby works long hours, and the only other time we could go would have been at night when it would be just as crazy.
It just so happens that Toys R Us is adjacent to the plaza where Market Basket is located. We parked at the end of the plaza, down where the garden shop is in the summertime. There were plenty of spaces. We then walked to Toys R Us, got our one item and walked back over to the plaza........walking gleefully past the long lines of cars waiting to get out of the parking lot.
We then walked to the other end of the plaza, got our food for supper, walked back (again, walking right past the long lines of cars trying to get out of the plaza) and drove out the back way to get home.
