Why has it been so tough for me to get on board with Christmas this year? Now that I'm finally done with the semester, and break has begun, I need to cram eighteen missed days of holiday prep into a single week at this point. No problem.
This page pretty much captures my current December state of mind:
The JBS Mercantile Papercrafting and Antiquarian kits have helped to make my transition into the holiday season less disorienting. :)
I'm pretty sure that with a good night of sleep, I'll be ready to tolerate songs about snow (which play nonstop on the radio here in HAWAI'I at this time of year), the hunt for a tree (am I the only one who feels guilty about bringing a tree indoors to die?), and maybe even the crowds at malls (grrrrrr). I have one week to shake off my Scrooge and get merry. Let's do this.
