Christmas is sneaky!!! I'm a little surprised how fast it crept up on me this year without me realizing how near it was getting.

I'll let you know a little secret. I'm a born procrastinator. In fact, I was procrastinating prior to my birth. I am eleven years younger than my three older sisters if that give you any inclination.

I clung to the insides of my poor mother for four weeks after my due date.

I've procrastinated school work, chores, even fun. I'm procrastinating right now by writing a blog.

But even my skills in putting off the inevitable surprised me this year. I had one week to do my Christmas shopping...and I'd done none of it.

But I went out and did it, and now luckily, everything is finished. It's even wrapped! But there is one thing I learned in all of this:
  1. Not all people in this world procrastinate.
Some of the things I initially went into the store to buy were sold out; already snatched up by those "prepared" people. Puh.

I'll just have to prepare better next year.

...But I'll probably procrastinate those preparations.

That picture is awesome! I've procrastinated this year too. Hope your present arrives on time.

That is a way cool picture!

You know, the last few years I've tried to reduce my Christmas stress by planning ahead and doing things in advance. Each year, the week of Christmas, I'm still panicked because of all the stuff I have left to do...even though I've been working on Christmas for over a month! So, maybe it's better to just procrastinate and worry about it one week instead of 5! :)

You know, Amazon is helpful for Christmas shopping; you don't even have to leave the house. :-P
