Unlike many years in the past, I started my holiday shopping and decorating early and I am essentially “done.” I did a little here and there, and now the house is ready and all I have left to do is mail out my cards which are already stamped and addressed.
But instead of feeling smug and satisfied, I’m really quite bored. It seems that not having the underlying pangs of panic takes away from some of the holiday “excitement!”
There is such a thing as being over-prepared. It’s not my nature. Back in school, so long ago, my assignments were finished minutes before they were due. I have always possessed a last-minute personality that pushed deadlines t0 the limit.
Even today, my days are prioritized by urgency, with the most pressing matters getting attention. Working under pressure makes you feel alive!
Maybe I’ll get lucky and one of the cats will knock the tree over. Now THAT would be exciting!
