HOLIDAY HELP FOR HOLIDAY HORRORS
December already -- how did I miss the part of November that comes after Thanksgiving?
If it takes me a week to wrap the gifts, how many shopping days does that leave before until Christmas (and how many payments to my Christmas account did I actually make?)
What am I going to do about the outdoor decorations, and the dinner, and the office parties, and the cookies, and scheduling family visits, and -- heaven help me -- all those CARDS I always mean to send???? [Stamps. . this year I have to make sure I buy stamps before the Post Office lines become unmanageable.]
How in the WORLD will I find the time to dig out a place to put up the tree, much less everything ELSE that goes with that task? Where did I pack away the ornaments and the lights and the tree-skirt last year anyway? Is there any chance I was smart enough to pack the stockings, the candle holders and the advent calendar in the same place?
If the Rumination Rag is the Christmas carol playing in your head too, check out the latest from Addvance by clicking the link below. Hey - maybe you could order several extra and simplify your gift list!! [If you are one of those ADDers who can't see the problem, click the link ANYWAY and leave a few more tips for the rest of us.]
OH - and consider THIS your Christmas card (I've already started simplifying!)
All of us at OFI and ADDCoach.com hope you have a VERY Merry Christmas.
