I have found it weird that I have not been stressed about Christmas this year. I'm always stressed about Christmas. But for some reason this year I've been very layed back about it.
Last night I had a dream that I was at work on Christmas Eve and for some reason I had to stay over and work most of Christmas day as well. (I'm a nurse, I guess this isn't too far fetched of a scenario, especially since I used to work nights). In my dream, I was getting into the car with some of my coworkers and realized it was late afternoon on Christmas day. Then I realized my kids were home, I had no presents wrapped, and Santa must not have come because nothing was ready. I remember feeling like such a lousy mother for ruining Christmas and my kids belief in Santa. I was happy to wake up and realize it was just a dream.
I still wasn't panicked about Christmas.
Then I made the mistake of logging onto facebook today. My cousin pointed out that Christmas was in two weeks and she had nothing done. WHAT?!? Two? I thought I had three! I thought she must be wrong so I checked the calendar and sure enough I only have two weeks. I'm not done with shopping. I haven't thought about wrapping. We don't know what we are doing on Christmas day.
I'm no longer layed back, I'm panicked.
While my husband is kicked back on the couch watching the Packers, I think I'll make my way upstairs to wrap some gifts. I've got less than two weeks.
