I heard Christmas music at Target today. Now, I love Christmas music and adore listening to it while I shop, but it’s not even Thanksgiving. And so I didn’t feel that warm, fuzzy feeling the holidays seem to give. All I felt was…a sick-to-my-stomach kind of feeling. And then panic.
I’m not ready for this! I just finally returned all the back-to-school forms back to school. I still have jack-o-lanterns on the front porch. I don’t even have winter coats for the kids yet. Or boots or mittens. I just mailed the thank you notes for my daughter’s birthday. In June. This. can’t. be. happening.
But it’s OK. This year, I’m doing all my shopping online (at PoshTots, of course). I know, I say that every year, but this year I mean it. That way I can just have everything shipped to my parents’ house and no Santa surprises will be spoiled.
My daughter wants a dollhouse and a new desk. Check (come to think of it, I want that desk!). My older son wants bunk beds. Check. My youngest son, the budding scientist, is getting a molecule building set and the pedal race car. Haha, what do you know?
The panic is gone. Well, some of it. I still have lots to do, but for once I feel like I’m actually ahead of the game. I still have my parents, in-laws, etc. but for them I’ll take a peek at PoshLiving. It’s going to be a great holiday!!!
