Do you ever get those moments of panic? Like you wake up and realize it’s less than two weeks until Christmas and you haven’t bought a single present? Or that you don’t even know what you plan to do Christmas day? I had that panic for a few moments today. This flu thing has thrown me off my game. I can barely get all the work done, so I’ve sort of left all the extra for another day. And I’m not really one to procrastinate. I think the freak out came after receiving several Christmas cards and I realized, I haven’t even bought any yet. This may be the first year in many, that I won’t be sending any out. I think I can live with that. And this may be the year that EVERYONE gets a gift card. I think I can live with that too. I probably won’t be making cookies, and I may buy one of those supermarket meals or have Christmas day catered. I can live with all of that too. As long as I have my kids and my husband, it’s all good.
So my question to you today is, what can you live with? What are some of your holiday traditions you can let slide without the guilt?
