Well, today it hit me. There are only 42 days until Christmas. Yikes. I’m not ready. I’m not even ready for Thanksgiving! Do you know what triggered this for me? I was in the midst of my daily/nightly ritual/vicious cycle of picking up the mess of toys my son had strewn across the house when all of a sudden I heard the song Jingle Bells being emitted by one of his mystery toys. You know what I’m talking about. That random toy that you hear but can’t actually find b/c it’s buried under a bunch more toys.
Anyway, I could use a few more weeks to plan and shop. Well, maybe I can count on Santa to bail me out at the last minute. He’s a resourceful fellow after all.
