Each year, I try my best to be done with Christmas preparations within the first two weeks of December, if not by Thanksgiving actually. I want to be able to sit back and enjoy the season. It didn't work out that way this year. Life has definitely gotten in the way.
I did get the last of my Christmas presents Saturday and got them wrapped. I am grateful for that. But I have been so busy since Friday that it's ridiculous. I haven't had much time to think, let alone relax. I'm definitely a little stressed. And, of course, it has affected my body - as it always does. I've been having trouble with my back, issues with my throat and I have a bladder infection now. Haven't had one of them in a few years.
I am pulling out the stops today and trying to use every stress busting technique that I can think of. I may not be too successful today as I have a bit on my plate that must be done. I am reminding myself that I must do this and I am working on saying no. Some weeks are just harder than others.
