As it draws nearer . . . .

Several blog posts today reminded me that it is indeed December 20th

The big day is approaching very quickly.

So I thought I would show you how that makes me feel . . . .

So very relaxed and zen-like


Come on people - I hope none of you believe that crap

This is actually closer to the truth . . .

There are still a list of gifts to buy, wrap, deliver.

There are still things to bake.

There are still ideas for the hard-to-buy-for that I am hoping will pop magically into my head.

There are annoying, crabby, pushy people in the stores that I want to run down with my cart.
(Hmmm, Is it possible I am one of them . . . . . . )

My dream of starting vacation at 4:30pm today is not going to happen.

Plan B - Noon tomorrow (fingers crossed)

This is starting to look plausible . . . .

Ho, Ho, Friggin Ho


  1. You make me laugh. I think you are so funny, I almost bought the zen thing going on. I was like " Wow, that is so cool, I wonder how she reached the state of Nirvana." I am glad you enlightened me.
    I have been moving furniture trying to make room for 25 people Christmas Eve, Ho, Ho, Frggin Ho just fits the day.
    I will keep my fingers crossed for you to get off at noon, tomorrow. :)

  2. LOL! That's hilarious! Yeah, that's kind of what I feel like too. I was good until I saw "20th" and realized that only leaves me 4 days. Thanks for the freak out. ;)

  3. You sound like me! You are making me feel so much better. It will get done, but I hope I'm alive after it's over! I do like Christmas..it's the buying I'm not too crazy about! Have a good week and I'll check back to see if we both survive!

  4. I have a feelin' there are more freaked moments ahead for you Kim!! But I know you will pass the stress test with Christmas colors!!
    Hang tough!!

  6. I had an ice-cream party with 19 ten year olds today...I've already had my white Christmas...maybe I'll have to move onto the red...I just have to get to 3:30 on Friday...please...please....
    I love your sense of humor!!!

  7. You are funny - I take it your are not ready yet. You will be by the 25th, Sandie

  8. Thanks for making me laugh...I needed that!!

  9. Funny your post should appear....I'm in the middle of a white Christmas myself! ;o) GRRRRRR.... WHY do I do this??? Me who HATES crowds and shopping??? (I'm going with the "waiting on the miracle gift idea to pop in my head" excuse.....) Ho Ho to you to my merry friend....I'm in that same state of zen you are....Hugs & Smiles ~ Robin

  10. Kim, you had me going for a sec. I was wondering what's gotten over you to make you feel so zen.
    You're a hoot even in the middle of this Christmas madness.

    I have every faith in you that you'll be ready on time because you are used to beating deadlines.

    I love the wine picture and I could use a glass RIGHT NOW.

    This afternoon I went shopping until I had to come home to feed the calves and I was drained of life but still needed to pee..
    The poor calves must I thought that I was a zombie when I came in the barn. The cats all got spooked ran in every direction. I just said "What the hell's going on here.

    Shopping for others when I have no idea what to get them is the worst. That's how ZEN I feel. It will all come to pass, I hope. JB

  11. Kim ~
    Sorry. I did not buy that zen thing for a second! Though we've never actually "met", I think I know you quite well. Thank you for always making us laugh. You are a treasure, dear friend :)
    Merry Christmas!
    Hugs :)
    P.S. I'll drink to that! Loved that cartoon!

  12. Haha...again Kim, you've made me laugh!! Hang in there, it will be over soon and we will be on to the next Holiday only a short week after this one!

  13. Kim, Kim. I don't know what to say except I was with you until this past Sunday and then our "Family Christmas" was OVER and now I can actually relax and enjoy Christmas :) I did dream of a blush-ish or rose-ish kind of Christmas yesterday. First glass of wine I have had since I got sick. I wish for you to get off for the Holidays, get all the "stuff" done and have yourself a Merry Little Christmas! I love the wine cartoon!

  14. Ha you are funny even though you are not feeling funny. For years I worked for a florist and at Christmas the demands got bigger the closer to Christmas we came. What you want us to decorate your entire 6 thousnd square foot home TOMORROW with custom swags.So our saying was Ho fu---- Ho
    Merry Christmas my friend,

  15. Hi Kin, I'm hoping that blogger let's me wish you a merry Christmas and wonderful New Year. If the white is not available I will take the red!!!!!

  16. thank you for the shortbread from all of us. Everyone was enjoying them, sorry I missed you

  17. Deep breaths, Kim, deep breaths... Oooommm... I love that cartoon!
