Perhaps you're like me.
When November rolls around, you make a mental list of all of your holiday preparations. Trees, cards, baking, shopping, trips to light displays, parties, etc., etc.
In some sort of crazy way, it all sounds doable in November.
Now what you do? Press them all through to completion and make your children live with a cranky mom? Consider this a "failed holiday?"
Well how about this option:
Pick one thing. Do it well. Then cross several other things off the list.
Last night was my "one thing:" A big family get together with messy cookie cutters and lots of sticky icing.
What made the plan extra special was its location. Since a health issue has kept my mother homebound for a season, we all gathered to bake at my folks’ house.
We did it! We did it!
Now I am free to remember that since I was the one who put all the things on the list, I now can take things off.
