I am generally a pretty well organized person. Mostly out of laziness and/or efficiency as opposed to the need to have control over my environment. But this year I am so behind the ball. Mostly because yesterday was my only day off but also because the little time I have left from working has been dedicated to my children and Brad.
I finally got a bit of Christmas shopping in yesterday but I didn’t get any packages out this week. I am going to call the hospital and see if the gift shop can bring my aunt some small treat. I need to call my mom. I haven’t checked in with her in a few days. I won’t see Brad until Christmas dinner and then maybe New Year’s. He’s been hinting at having a midnight kiss. As if I want to stay up that late. Lol. I really can not think that far ahead.
My ex-SIL (sister in law) just texted me. She’s in the same predicament. Her gifts will arrive late. I told her we should do what my dad’s family used to do. They were too poor to celebrate Christmas so they celebrated Epiphany on January 6th to mark the arrival of the three kings bearing gifts. The children would get oranges or some small token in their shoes. I’m game if she is I told her. But I doubt the kids will hold out seeing a box waiting for them. Lol
I don’t like feeling so disorganized but this has been a stressful little year and this just caps it off well. Good riddance 2019!!! I’m hoping 2020 brings in countless more blessings, for me, my girls, my loves ones and truly for the whole world. We could all use a little respite from the chaos of life. No?
It’s not all that politically correct to say it maybe but I really don’t care in the haven of my own little blog.
