Christmas is officially 6 days away and I am wondering where the heck the time has gone?!?!?!
My honey and I are hosting Christmas this year, so I am in full on preparation mode right now. Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday, so while many have told me I am crazy for wanting to host, I say "Yes Please!" even though at times I may look like this:
While my brain has been mulling over recipes, making a list (checking it twice) and finalizing the menu and grocery shopping list, I have also been trying to finish decorating. Our Christmas tree has gone through some stages during the past two weeks since we've welcomed it into our home.
It all started on December 7.
Stage 1 - Sunday Afternoon
Stage 2 - An hour later (or so it felt)
Stage 3 - Sunday Evening
Stage 4 - Saturday Morning (Almost one whole week later - December 13).
Conversation between me and my honey:
Me: We need to go to Home Depot for more lights.
Me: Sooner rather than later in hopes of them not being all gone?
Late Saturday Afternoon:
Honey: I am going out for coffee.
Me: What about us going to get the tree lights.
Honey: I will try and go afterwards.
Me: Well please try as I am worried that the lights we want will be all gone.
Saturday Evening - 3-4 hours later
Honey: I got lights!
Me: Yay lets put them on so we can put on the ornaments.
Ok turned out to be Monday evening after work.
Stage 5 - Operation Get Those Ornaments On
Um, so yeah, Stage 5 is still in the works. I've been waiting all week for the honey to have some free time to decorate the tree with me. I thought he'd want to help since this is his first tree as an adult. After a quick discussion in the car this morning, it was determined that I would start putting the ornaments on and if he could free up his work life, he would help. So come heck or high water, this tree will be finished tonight!
I've been decorating here and there in the meantime. Still need to pull out some more stuff, but I need the honey to bring the boxes down for me. We did get this cute little guy when we bought the tree...
While all this Christmas craziness has been going on, I have been getting some knitting done. Been working on a couple last minute knitted gifts. Once those are done I'll pick back up with my Hermione Everyday Socks.
How are your holiday's shaping up? Going crazy? Enjoying the season? Getting knitting done?
