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)
