Have yourself a very Merry Christmas



I've been procrastinating...again. We finished our Christmas shopping Tuesday afternoon/evening and I spent part of yesterday making chocolate covered pretzel rods and wrapping gifts. Today I need to see if I can get the rest of the gifts wrapped and some additional baking completed. Our daughter wants us to spend Christmas Eve with them in Colorado Springs but I don't know if we'll make it down the mountain tonight or not. We'll be spending all of Christmas day with them tomorrow so it isn't a really big deal but if I can get motivated and get everything done today, we might be able to make it tonight and tomorrow. We'll see. My motivation is taking a long winter's nap so I never get as much accomplished as I'd like to. Most of the time, I don't even care! At least the sun is out today and as long as the wind doesn't kick up, maybe it will even melt some of the snow.

I'm always relieved when the holiday is over though - no more pressure to think of and find (or make) the perfect gift, wonder if I've gotten everything done, etc. I can just kick back, relax and enjoy the time off. Now that the Winter Solstice has passed and the days are getting longer again, I'm hoping my Motivation finds its way back home where it belongs. I have a very long list of things to get done!

Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas. However you celebrate the holiday, I hope you have a fabulous day.
