Christmas 2011 is upon us

Two more days until Christmas. Gift shopping is done. Wrapping is almost done. Next up is grocery shopping for dinner and starting my baking.

This yearly ritual is tiring and crazy, but always welcome. Why do we put ourselves through this stress. We spend too much, we eat too much, we drink too much. Can you spell E X C E S S ?

On the other hand, it brings my family together in hugs and smiles and love that can be shared and shared over and over. That alone is worth the stress. The yearly bonding event that glues this family together in a way that nothing else can.

Well the day is beginning, I need to finish my grocery list and get my butt in gear!
