Making lists and checking them twice...

Each year I do this dreadful thing.
I bite off more than I can chew.
This year I planned to be different. Oh well...I did go out and enjoy many events and concerts, so I'm pleased with that.
But I left the cleaning and the gift wrapping to the very last 2 days, and then my neck gets stiff and I suffer angst! I scrubbed and cleaned all day yesterday, and today I'm putting together appetizers and making salads for a Christmas Eve buffet here at our house, and wrapping last minute gifts I'd forgotten about, and trying to figure out some games to play, as everyone loves to do that!
I love to have people over, but I need to get more organized.
Alas, Robert told me the other day I wasn't disciplined. Sniff...sniff...
I find I'm easily distracted, and don't stick to one task until it's completed.
It's a great fault of mine.
Well, enough of that...I hope each one of you that reads this pathetic blog of mine, will have a blessed Christmas Day, enjoying Jesus Christ, the Reason for the Christmas Season!

I'm the exact same way. I have trouble staying on task and am easily distracted. And I used to get a lot more done before the Internet. :) Merry Christmas Eve!

Hi Loretta! Hope your Christmas celebrations will be as beautiful as your plans sound. And that you will relax and enjoy it all. I gave up all that stuff years ago, and will do nothing but go to church tonight. But I'll be thinking of you! Have a blessed and joyous Christmas, and don't forget the promise of PEACE on Earth!

Loretta, tell Robert that "artistic" people are not suppose to be ruins their artistic abilities and inspirations.
