How to tell that you're really behind on Christmas tasks ....

  • It's ten days before Christmas and you're still finishing up the fall placemats you hoped to use in November!  (See great tutorial on easy placemats over at I'm Just A Guy Who Quilts.  Yes, they are easy; but you still have to plan enough hours in the day to finish them!)
  • You have the full-blown flu including a low-grade temperature, aches and pains.  Therefore, your mental and physical speed is about 15 mph instead of 95 mph.
  • The gifts are wrapped - whoo hoo!  None of them, however, have bows or gift labels (unless you consider green post-it notes labels).
  • The most important thing on today's "to-do" list is to convince DH that we can skip the holiday letter this year.
  • Thoughts of making any last-minute homemade gifts flew out the window about 2 a.m. this morning when the latest coughing spell took over.
  • DD called to ask what cookies I would be making so we don't have duplicates.  Cookies?  I'm supposed to make cookies?
  • Today's weather is cloudy, damp, and gloomy - a perfect reflection of my holiday spirit.
I'll feel better tomorrow - promise.  Please, Santa!
