One of my favorite Christmas movies of ALL time is the 1951 version of A Christmas Carol . My favorite part of the whole movie is where he tells the housekeeper “I am not mad.” The he goes “bwahaha” and ruffles his hair all up. I bust up every single time.
These days I feel a lot like that scene…not out of joy of Christmas and changed lives, but simply because this year December has been especially c R a Z y!
With my father-in-law being home for a few weeks, Amber being super sick and missing a week of school, hubby being in the trenches of finals, all the extra Christmas activities for everything, everywhere, and me having deadlines in all four jobs stack up higher, higher, higher, higher–even a normally organized “I like to have everything done by December 1st so I can enjoy the month” person like me has holiday seasons where they go a little nutso.
So in the spirit of people with plates piled too high everywhere, here is my list of things I could use 25% more of right now! (apart from sanity….ahem)
5 Things I could use 25% More Of This Holiday Season
#1 25% More Time Each Day — yes, yes, I know! We all have 24 hours, you just say yes to the best, yadda yadda yadda. I’ve said it all before too, and yes I’m cutting back–but that’s not helping any right now! When you’re going from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. working 9 hours a day for work and then working the rest of the day for family–25% more hours in the day would be a MAZ ing. Either that or I need to figure out how to sleep less, but because I looove me my sleep I’m going with the time increase instead.
#2 – 25% More Assistants – As I mentioned I have actually gotten the chance to hire some assistants for my various jobs, but I really could use 25% more! Particularly when I have a bunch of miscellaneous errands this month that are eating away precious time (remember #1?) In a FB group of bloggers this morning when asked what we wanted in our stocking another blogger mentioned: a fully paid personal assistant in my stocking. Bonus points if he looks like George Clooney and can feed me grapes on command. I followed up with: I like her idea but make mine look like the Thor guy and he needs to have my knowledge of all my jobs, be great with kids, and be a personal trainer. 😉 Which leads perfectly into….
#3 25% More Exercise – due to the lack of #1 this hasn’t been happening….at all…for let’s not say how long. Because I’d gotten into a really great groove of working out at least 5 times a week before I got so super sick in October I’m shocked to find that I actually MISS it! I don’t miss the working out itself per say, but I slept a lot better and the 6 a.m. mornings weren’t killers-they don’t lie when they say it really does give you more energy!!! I really could use this again, but in the meantime the poor treadmill just looks like this, with only the horse for company.
#4. 25% More Coffee – ok, so since 1-3 are pretty much pipe dreams at this point, I’m going to list something that I really don’t NEED more of, but I think that I do! Because, really, I heart coffee. Do I need to explain this more?
#5 25% More Toilet Paper. Because, honestly, is anything quite as frustrating as being super distracted and not noticing this until a um, critical moment? And with a hubby, two girls who tend to use more than their fair share,( yes guilty as charged), and a potty training toddler this sight is one that is waaaaay too common in our household!
But shut the front door! Something on my list that I *actually can get* this holiday! I’ve always hearted Cottonelle toilet paper. Some things you just need small comforts for, and that is one of them for me!
This holiday season, and all seasons, you can avoid the above annoyance for a little bit longer because Cottonelle Clean Care has 25% more sheets per roll than their competitors.
It might not be a Chris Hemsworth look a like personal assistant helping motivate me to work out in my 30 hour day, but more is always better, and I’ll take it!
