One more week to Christmas and this is perhaps the most ill-prepared I've ever felt. The clothes and the gifts are mostly ready but I feel like I haven't managed to tackle a lot of things on my imaginary to-do list. Yes, even the list is still imaginary.
SO this is my very unglam to-do list:
1. Buy the kids' shoes for Christmas.
2. Clean the oven.
3. Bake sugar cookies with Miranda.
4. Finish buying gifts for overseas and...
5. Send out overseas presents.
6. Order books for my Kindle.
7. Organise a stationery station for the kids' art.
At the moment, I'm feeling very excited about the kids' reactions to the presents (both my kids' and my nieces'). They have all got some coolstuff. I'm also looking forward to spending some quality time with the girls during the holidays. Miranda even has some birthday presents that we haven't gotten around to opening.
But then, not to be a Grinch or anything, I also want to take down the Christmas tree as soon as possible.
I absolutely cannot wait for the new year.
I would say that this year has been very trying for the most part but we did have two amazing holidays and managed to see some of our friends who took a holiday here in Melbourne too so it wasn't that bad. But I do believe next year will be better.
