Life has just been so busy this week, which is probably the same for everyone who celebrates Christmas. Work is stressful with long hours, and there are just not enough minutes in the day to do everything I wish I could do to prepare for Christmas.
Here's a little screenshot from my computer...it says
Help... Inbox (1564 messages, 168 unread).
I still have to read all of those messages and respond to most of them. I try not to feel like I'm drowning in information management. I know lots of people feel that way, but it seems more excessive at this time of year.
|Christmas To Do List|
I remind myself that everything that needs to get done, will get done. If it doesn't get done, it wasn't really necessary after all.
What I really want to do is quilt, because it calms me down.
What I will do is shop, wrap presents, get groceries, cook, wash dishes, clean, and cook some more. When all the work is done there will be time for visiting with friends and family, and then maybe some time for quilting. Quilts can wait.
