It's WHAT Day!?!

Is it really true? There are only a few days left until, until, until Christmas??!! How can this be? It's so strange how I've been looking and counting the weeks and SUDDENLY I realize that "it" is almost upon us!

Really, I do know how to count weeks and days, got to be pretty good at that in these last few decades. But seriously, how does this keep happening to me? Am I alone in this?? 

The last gift to be sent out finally fell out of the sky was delivered last night. So today I can make another trip to the post office to overwhelm those folks some more. Don't cha just love 'em!

I feel as if I need to stuff in as much Christmas stuff as possible in these last hours. I think I'll skip sleeping for the next week or so. Maybe then I can get my fill of the Christmas happenings!

Or maybe I'll do what I do every year. I'll keep all most a few Christmas decorations out until Spring. Just blended in, ya' know? And I'll not pack away the Christmas movies or CD's for, well, who am I kiddin' - I never pack those away! I watch Christmas movies and play Christmas music all year. Yeah, I'm That kind of Girl.

Now, please go over and visit our friends Courtney at the French Country Cottage and Sherry at No Minimalist Here and Gina at The Shabby Chic Cottage . They are hosting  fabulous parties that you'll not want to miss!

 Have a Merry, Merry Weekend!
