It’s that time again. December is here [though you wouldn’t know it in Northern NJ where the weather feels more like spring today], and there’s so much to do before the year is over.
My TO DO list is overflowing with chores: clean the house really good [that one’s always on there], finish Christmas shopping [I start in October usually], wrap the presents, write out Christmas cards, finish my WIPs, bake some cookies...it goes on and on.
What’s on your TO DO list this time of year? Do you go into overdrive mode like I do? I try to cram as much as I can into each day. I keep lists, stack things up on my desk that need to be done so I’ll remember to go through them, jot notes on my calendar and generally run around like a nut.
Oddly, I don’t mind it. There’s something about the holidays that energize me. Come January, I’m like a clock in the Dali painting, and I’m quite content just to drape myself over the nearest piece of furniture and ruminate on all I’ve accomplished in December.
I know people who are the opposite. They drag through the holidays, stressed by all the activity, then bounce back into the swing of things at New Years ready to start the calendar from the beginning again. Which one are you?
Here’s a few things to add to your TO DO list [in case it’s looking a little sparse]
