Hold the phone!

I'm not kidding, I just realized that Christmas is next Friday.

I'm not even close to ready. I haven't bought the ingredients for Christmas dinner. I haven't cleaned my house in weeks. I haven't wrapped presents. I haven't scheduled vacation days. I haven't gotten the second bedroom ready for my sister to sleep in for two weeks (there's still the small matter of getting a bed...).

Looks like Christmas will be low-key this year since I kind of forgot about it. It's a good thing my mom mailed boxes of gifts to my house. No one will leave empty-handed due to my lack of preparation.

Close call.


  1. We have a mattress you can use. It is just sitting upstairs. You are totally welcome to use it for your sister.

  2. I know! I'm freakin'! I've been in a crazy last-minute shopping frenzy this whole week. I keep forgetting Utah and stores, and I don't NEED to be done before we drive home....but it really snuck up on me this year! Hope everything falls into place for you. :) Either way, it will be lovely.

  3. Seriously, right? Good thing The Bug doesn't yet know/care about Santa.

  4. haha, way for moms to always save the day :]

  5. I keep looking at the calendar thinking I must be on the wrong week, but no. It was way fast this year. Maybe elves will stop by one night and take care of it all for you. ;)

  6. we had a conversation at work yesterday that went something like this:

    girl: hey, have you done any christmas shopping yet?
    boy: not really.
    girl: well, you might want to get on that because christmas is in just over a week.

    and everyone in the office then started freaking out. it was funny! and yes, it really did sneak up this year. i was feeling prepared until i realized how few of days i actually have to finish up everything. eeek!


Thanks for stopping by!
