All right, hands up all of you who looked at the calendar this morning and suffered near immediate heart failure.
Because surely I can’t be alone in this.
I mean, yes, the date yesterday was November 30, but did that necessarily mean that December had to follow on the very next day?
I think not.
And yet, here we are…most definitely, decidedly in December.
Excuse me for a moment while I find a paper bag in which to hyperventilate…okay, I’m good now. And I’m pretty sure I have everything under control. Let’s have a look at the list:
1. Hubby’s ten-day trip out of the country planned for two weeks preceding Christmas? Check.
2. Kitchen refacing project planned for while hubby is out of the country, because there’s no time for renovations like two weeks before Christmas? Check.
3. Buying, thawing out, bringing in, and decorating a Christmas tree while hubby is still away, because that’s the only time I’ll have to get it done? Check.
4. An early Christmas dinner planned for the 22nd so we can have all our kids around the table with us? Check.
Hubby leaves next Thursday. Painting starts in the kitchen on Tuesday. We’re tearing it apart and getting it prepped this weekend. A son-in-law has agreed to come and show me how to install the vinyl click flooring. YouTube has my back on installing the ceramic backsplash. And the tree goes up on the 18th.
Yup. All under control.
But I could definitely have done with more November…
Wish me luck?
Or send wine.
Whatever works for you. 😉
