I like to have everything planned out
(I've taken ques from Martha Stewart in the organization of everything)
and ready maybe 2 or 3 days prior to our festivities.
Then I can focus on how I'm going to serve the meal;
sit down and relax a bit before the excitement
Thanks for asking as i was going to ask this question myself.
I dread this time of year and I am anxious, nervous and grumpy.
I woke up the other morning totally in distress.
I am actually taking deep breaths as i type this post.
Its not about the food or the holiday. Its about the gifts.
My wife is wonderful and does all the shopping for 8 grand children and four daughters. She is the best.
Me not so much.
Her birthday is on the 26th and i still only have a gift certificate to give her. I plan to go back out today. Thankfully she has hinted about a gift. Its what I am going to pick up.
I want to show her how much I appreciate her, but I have a very hard time buying and especially picking out gifts for her.
I have become a Grinch around this time of year and wish I could stop being so negative and get into the Christmas spirit.
I always say next year *******. But it always turns out like this. Me nervous and anxious.
