I thought I had it all under control, but apparently I forgot to put a whole bunch of people on my list. It’s not just for gifts, it’s those cards, those damned Christmas cards!
Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas, it’s just the shopping I have difficulty with. And apparently I am especially challenged when it comes to making up a card list. This is the first year in a long time that I have summoned the mental planning and good intentions to send out cards. Usually I just tell people that I can’t get my shit together. This year, I’ve made the horrible mistake of stating confidently that I will be sending out cards (and our family photo which still hasn’t arrived yet) to one and all!
Now that I’m starting to get cards from my co-workers (I didn’t know we did that around here), I’ve come to the realization that I need to buy more cards. And I need to do it yesterday because as of next week, half the office is off.
What was I thinking! Next year I’m just going to keep my big fat mouth shut. Then, if I get the cards out, great! If not, well, at least I didn’t go around telling Christmas lies to everybody.
