It is exactly 5 weeks until Christmas today. Can you believe it? I can. At my workplace we’ve started decorating with Christmas decorations, we have special Christmas offers and I’m pretty sure when I go to work again on Monday the songs I’ll hear on our speakers will be “Driving home for Christmas”, “ Dreaming of a white Christmas”, etc.
For years now I’ve had the annoying problem that I’m pretty much broke around Christmas and the small scraps of cash I have go to pathetic little Christmas gifts that probably will never be remembered. The extra sucky part is that around Christmas time, when I am at my broke-est and spend the money I have on others – THAT is when I finally see things I like at stores. I truly believe stores keep things from me until Christmas….
This year however, I’ve been working. Hooray for that! As you can see in the picture above, the cold is coming fast – which for my part only increases the excitement for Christmas. I’m a Christmas-lover, truly I am. Right now, at this very moment, I want to listen to Christmas music, watch Christmas movies, etc… You get the point.
So I was thrilled today when I got the chance to take my hard earned money and go get some decent presents for the ones I love!
So today, 5 weeks before Christmas, I am pretty much done with Christmas presents! Say it with me people: aaaaahhhh…..! And then because I’m the kind of girl who likes to get personal around Christmas, I decided to make some Christmas cards for my far-away friends. I moved to where I live almost 5 years ago, so I have old childhood friends that need to know I’m thinking of them…
So I’m sitting here now.. happy.. relaxed… and in good spirit! For my sake, Christmas can just come as soon as it would like. I’m ready to enjoy it!
Have you started getting ready for Christmas?
