Christmas is Coming

Christmas is bearing down on me like a predator. It's less than a week away now and I can see it clearly on the horizon. I'm sure a lot of you are looking at its approach with glee, but unfortunately I'm not ready. Not at all. I was optimistic this weekend, as I chugged along on my various projects, but so far this week I haven't had time to do anything. My plan was to be finished everything by Friday, so I could have a few days to relax before Christmas. Alas things are looking grim.

Don't worry, I haven't given up hope yet. I'm a procrastinator by nature, so I work well under pressure. Fear of failure is an excellent driving force. Which is why this going to be a rather short post. Sorry, but time is of the essence. If you're behind on your own holiday prep, I wish you luck as well. Of course, I will be back again on Friday, so stay tuned.


  1. It's considerate of you to keep it succinct for the rest of us procrastinators. Thanks for not providing me yet another excuse not to get my sh*t done.
    Merry Christmas friend.
    I hope you get some glitter on you this season and think of me.

  2. I hope we get the snow we are supposed to have with this winter storm so we can leave Sunday instead of Saturday to see my brother and his family. I realize we'll b there one day less, but like you I am so behind - but not in buying gifts. I do all that on-line. Much easier. No, I'm behind on laundry, wrapping and finding someone to look after my babies (cats)! Why is it always this way? Thanks for the procranstination comraderie. Off I go to try to get something done - Maybe the wash?
