    Us? We aren't nearly ready.

    Need to get the tree up and decorated. Need to shop for a few gifts. Plan the meal, shop for that...

    We decided that this year will be a turning point for us. We will be focusing on coming together instead of gift giving. No one truly "needs" anything, so the gifts will be mementos, that sort of thing.

    All that to say, we've not started anything yet!

    Where are you?

    Well DW Sally and I wanted to get the decorating done before Alex went back to finish the semester. So last Sunday afternoon we put up the tree, did the mantle, put up decorations around the house, put candles in the windows and added holly swag to windows. So the decorating is done...but starting to freak out.....haven't purchased one present yet!

    I am so far behind I'm starting to panic. I still have presents to buy and post, I've got to write all the cards and ice the cakes.

    The tree is stood in the corner of the room looking very sorry for itself as it is completely bare. Hopefully Chris will help me with the tree tomorrow, although I do prefer to decorate it on my own

    I've got to order the turkey and ham as well.

    Can someone please tell me where the last 2 months have gone

    Tink, I love your idea









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Whew. I'm not feeling so bad then. Seems like we are all crazy busy with other things!

    Do what you can do, and let the rest go.

    I've purchased presents. Does that count?

    I wanted to get the tree and decorations up prior to going to WDW but that didn't happen. Maybe this weekend? I hope so cause next weekend we are going to Christmastown at Busch Gardens.

    Ummmmm. Well the tree is up. Presents are mostly bought but nothing is wrapped yet. Cards are being posted today. Meat has been ordered from butcher and grocery delivery slot has been reserved. Wow I sound quite organised don't I? The house is chaos.

    Well my DD has been in Hospital for the last three months... she only came out on Monday so I had only managed to get a very few bits and pieces in so I have been like a whirling dervish getting the rest of my things. Like you Tink, we all really do have all we want and need so only token gifts are given every year.

    I'm just so happy to have my DD home again, she is still not well but she's getting there, she caught C Diff in Hospital so that put her back in coming home sooner.
