Me: "I'm walking between the dryer, my computer and the Christmas tree."
She started choking on laughter, so I thought I better provide more detail -
"Now that the tree is up and is lit, beaded, berried and bowed...........Wow! that's a lot of B's, and it's ready for ornaments, I thought I might pull out the garland for the stairs but I hate how fake needles get all over."
Wait! What did I just say? I don't think that made it any more clear!I am afflicted with December onset ADD!
There's so much to do - all the regular Seminary, family, household stuff combined with baking, decorating, presenting (that includes, thinking about, shopping, returning, hiding, wrapping, mailing, delivering), and celebrating.
Until yesterday, I didn't realize that the advent calendars weren't out. Perhaps we should simplify and not do the felt one, the individual chocolate ones and since the kids are teenagers, we can probably forgo the Lego one and the Playmobil one. And you know what, while we are skipping things, let's skip Christmas cards (oh, we already do).
I guess what I was trying to tell Margaret is that when Christmas induced ADD sets in, I float between all the tasks, never really completing any one in particular. There is so much to do! You can't do everything! Something has to give.
But what came out was "I'm standing on top of a ladder in front of the Christmas tree in my short skirt, hose and heels with a stack of laundry.........let's go to lunch."
