Now, I’m in the swing of things for Christmas.  A bit earlier than usual. How about you? I’ve already been playing the Christmas music, baking Christmas treats and almost have my Christmas photo card completely together. Let’s just say I’m feeling good compared to last year when I didn’t even touch my Christmas card until about December 10. Which ends up making me feel stressed.

And who wants extra stress at the holidays? Not this chick. I was so annoyed with myself last year that I fast forwarded my digital calendar and put in a few reminders to start working on things like my Christmas card and gifts. It’s been working so far. And I’m going to try to do it again next year.

My husband, on the other hand, doesn’t want to talk or think about Christmas until Thanksgiving is over. Where do you fall? Do you tend to get a head start on things or do you just vow to not think about it until after Thanksgiving? Whatever works best for you, my friend!
