What? Christmas spirit this early?

What? Christmas spirit this early?

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  Everywhere you go.  Tra lalalalalalala lalalalalalala etc

I do realize that Christmas is only a month 3 weeks 2 weeks 10 days away, but for me, to be as close to finished with my Christmas shopping as well as have the house decorated, the “Christmas outfits” purchased, and cards bought and ready to go out, well, it is miraculous.  Seriously.

Back in 1995 when I was pregnant with Zarek, I put off Christmas shopping until AFTER he was born.  He was born on the 12th of December.  You do the math.  Short stay in the hospital, a few days to recover from the “what the hell just happened here” effect to my body and all company to leave.  That did not leave me a lot of time to shop.  But I did!  And I got it all finished in time for everyone to get their presents BEFORE Christmas.  As well as birth announcements. 

I work well under pressure.

I AM that person out on Christmas Eve praying to the gods of mass marketing and commercialism that there is still something good out there for a last minute gift for that one person that I kept putting off buying for.  Every. Year.

But not this year.  This year I have allowed people to play Christmas music for a while now. I have enjoyed humming along and getting stuff done early and without the “oh dear god will I ever get this done in time” panic attacks.  Is this how organized people live?  I could get used to this (if someone would plan it all out for me or something).

So, with all of that said, the only reason I really even wanted to post was so that I could post one of my favorite Christmas songs.  Forget the classics everyone sings.  This one makes me giggle.  I hope you enjoy it!
