Is it possible to wrap gifts while asleep?

Oy, I feel like a juggler on speed! With the completion of the kitchen, things have kicked into high gear in the Everyday Occasions crib. We've just about finished decorating for Christmas and for the Bubs's birthday/Holiday lunch this Sunday. Now, if I could magically get someone to tackle the bathroom so I don't have to.....

I figure if I'm cooking someone else can clean the john. I'd surely "apreeshyate" it!

Anyway, I hope y'all are keeping safe as you take care of your Yuletide errands. People are drivin' like maniacs! I have the urge to roll down my window and loudly inform them that Wally World ain't goin' anywhere!

I must confess that this year the Christmas cheer that I normally have has been difficult to drum up. It's the first Christmas without Mom and she always made things so special....I'm feeling some pressure to make that happen for my family now. The Hubs would tell me that I'm bringing that pressure on myself. He's prob'ly right, the stinker. In any case, I accept that this Christmas will be difficult for all of us but there are still moments of joy to be had and have them, we will.

Oh I hear you...The drivers around here have left their minds at home. Egad.

I hope and pray that you and your family can find comfort and joy this holiday season~♥

God Bless you Anna.

Pressure is what you put on yourself, I'm sure you will make it a wonderful Christmas with lots of great memories.

And when you're out and about - will you please tell the people here that Wally-World isn't moving?

You are putting pressure on yourself. I agree with the Hubs. One day and one moment at a time. You can't fill your mom's shoes or take her place. You can carry on her memory by being calm and trying to bring brightness to the boys that day.

I've been thinking a lot about your mom this week too. So has Mom and Aunt D. Mom got weepy when they got the photos today. Thanks for sending them to Aunt D.
