Well, it’s that time of year again. Christmas. Everyone’s in a cheery mood. There’s hustle and bustle everywhere you turn. No parking spaces at the mall; the grocery stores and restaurants are crowded. Christmas music fills the air, and the sight of holiday lights warms the heart.
Everyone’s preparing for the big day. That means a big meal, big gifts, and lots of time spent with family and friends. It really is very special. I, like everyone else, have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get gifts together. I’ve already bought for my kids and husband, but it’s the rest of the family that has me in a whirl. I like to give personal gifts, so the past four days I’ve spent most of my waking hours on shutterfly.com making photo Christmas gifts for all the grandparents. It’s been so time consuming that my house looks like a tornado hit it (ha-ha), my poor family. As you can imagine, it’s become the big joke this week, “So, you’re still on the computer?” that’s the playful banter I usually hear. I promised this week would be better, but I have a feeling it won’t be.
