Every Year

It happens every year. The same day, the same time, the same everything. Yet for some reason, I can't seem to get ahead enough of myself to be able to relax during the week leading up to Christmas.

This year, I had it all worked out. I had most of the presents bought and made by October. But a couple of things slipped past me and here I am, less than a week away from Christmas, with three objects that need to be finished. One hasn't even been started yet.

I would like to congratulate myself, however, on having a backup plan. A few people who were originally going to get a hand knit this year are actually going to get them next year. Their presents are still handmade, and all is wonderful and well. My stress level has decreased since I don't have seven objects to finish in a week now.

Sigh. I'm starting on next Christmas the second I finish with this one. I WILL be relaxing this time next year!
