Christmas Preparations

After almost having a nervous breakdown last week because of work, writing, and the holidays and having almost nothing done, I have managed to kinda get on track. Here's my list:

Christmas shopping: I actually have some of it done.
Baking supplies procured: I have everything I need to make a plethora of delicious Christmas treats.
Christmas Tree: Is up and decorated. (See pix)perfectionist daughter wouldn't let us put our old ornaments on. Instead she created a HGTV tree that looks like it came right out of a magazine.
Christmas Cards: The cards containing my yearly tongue in cheek holiday letters, are all signed sealed and sitting on the counter ready to go.
Christmas Craft: Made a Christmas Card Tree (See Pix)I can't remember where I got this idea, but by the end of the season it will be covered with Christmas cards.

I also finished a chapter in my WIP, (am behind, but hoping to catch up today), one of my articles and all my work related stuff.

BIG DEEP SIGH OF RELIEF. Christmas will NOT kick my butt. I am FINE.
