The tree is decorated, though with less lights than I wanted. I forgot I threw some worn out strings away last year when I took the tree down. It works anyway. Santas have been set out. I'm trying not to think about the cleaning. :)
Gifts have been ordered and have mostly been delivered. So far I did my Christmas shopping without ever setting foot in an actual store. I need to make some deer jerky for a couple of the guys, make some microwave bowl potholders and get DH's hunting/fishing license & I will be done (as long as a couple more things get delivered). That's always a good feeling.....finding something for everyone always stresses me out. Hope I haven't jinxed myself by saying I'm pretty much finished.
My quilting group had our Christmas Potluck & gift exchange for our Nov. meeting and my women's club had ours Friday night. Both were very enjoyable and much less stress than the family Christmas.
Maybe I should watch "Christmas Vacation" tonight?!?
It would be nice to be as relaxed about it all as this guy:
