Christmas Joy Does Not Involve a To Do List

Thought I’d reblog myChristmas post from last year since I’m starting to get that frenzied feeling again.

Freedom Through Empowerment


Every year about this time it happens.  I can only procrastinate for so long before it dawns on me that I’m down to days, not weeks, to get all my shopping done, decorations put up, gifts wrapped, menus planned and guests invited.  Attending holiday parties and trying to close out these last few days at work before the big day only adds to the pressure and soon enough I’m in a frenzy, feeling both invigorated and impossibly exhausted at once, having been completely sucked in to the consumer vortex of Christmas time in America.

    No need to get in a frenzy over last minute gifts, Seven Eleven has a great selection and CVS is always good for those last minute presents! You can find some real bargains on Christmas Day too and don’t forget the 75% off on 2015 calendars! Great stocking stuffers.
