STOP ME BEFORE I'M TOO MERRY
HELP! It's just now fall. I love pumpkins. I love leaves. I love all the orange colors everywhere. But, Christmas catalogs are arriving in the mail daily and tantalizing me with scenes of merriment and elves. With wondering if I need a new Christmas tree and why didn't I go to Hobby Lobby's end of year sale last year? With what kind of paper should I wrap gifts in? With lists and lists and lists. With wondering how I am going to make some quick cash for Christmas money. I'm retired now you know. And now, I have 4 grandchildren unlike last year's 2. Those four are my GIFT. But then, I have to find the perfect gift for everyone. I love the insanity of this season. I am "sick" like that. I'm dreaming of all my children home to relax for a few days then. I'm loving all the generations that will be in this house and adoring each other. But, I have to make pumpkin cupcakes for the library on Wednesday and I haven't even bought a Thanksgiving turkey yet.
