It’s beginning to look a lot like…chaos!

Christmas is one week out and I am three weeks behind.

Happens every year. Because things happen every year

Week before week before last I got nothing done because we hosted an event for twenty people. It turned out to be eighty people!

The next week I got nothing done because my back was whacked.

Last week I got nothing done because, well, parties! 🙂

This week I got nothing done because, well, parties! 🙂

Also, that Grinch COVID is roaring back and everyone and his/her brother/sister/daughter/best friend apparently has it. So we got off the fence and went in for the booster yesterday. Today I will get nothing done because I feel like death.

We did actually get one thing done. We went to see baby lambs. Wish I could wrap them up and give them as gifts! HOW CUTE ARE THEY????!!! All I want for Christmas is ewe!

So. We have done pretty much everything except get ready for Christmas.

All we have to show for December is a paltry pile of presents and a tree that is listing at an increasingly precarious angle.

Oh well, no big deal. We only have fourteen people arriving to celebrate next week.

But if I learned anything from Christmas 2020 it’s that despite everything being wrong, it somehow all came together to be one of our best holidays ever. Here’s hoping there’s enough Christmas magic left over to make it happen again. I think we’ve learned some things about Christmas these past couple of years and maybe, just maybe, the only thing we really have to have ready for Christmas is our hearts.

I know it we won’t get it exactly right, but I think it will be perfect!

I hope yours will be, too!

“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”

— Charles Dickens
