Stressed!!

Well here it is only a few days left until Christmas..am I ready?..sort of..the present shopping is done..the turkey is thawing in the fridge.I still need to get a few more groceries...the presents still need wrapping and I am still waiting to hear about one other gift that is yet to be completed..

Our weekend was spent doing the usual activities..cooking, cleaning, shopping..I did manage to clean up four closets on Sunday afternoon though..a little re-organizing does wonders for the 'control-freak in me'.

This Christmas has not been an easy one to get excited about..it just seems to be stressful holiday..family dynamics and such have not made it too pleasant..we only have to hope for the best..and move on from there..dont know if it is going to be a perfect Hallmark Christmas but we will make the most of it!!

We will learn from our mistakes and hope others will too..sometimes it may just be better to 'bite your tongue' and deal with other's behaviours..but you know sometimes you just have to say something even if it is going to hurt someone's feelings....learn from the criticism...improve the behaviour and all would be right with the world.!!  But it seems that stubborness runs in the family so we will just leave things as they are..and can hope that next year things will be different...
