Hello Monday of the last full week before Christmas. I am pretty excited about this week. I'm tying up loose ends and feeling pretty unstressed. Normally, I am racing around this week like the world is about to end. But, last year I raced myself into a body shutdown.
And I never want to experience that again. Ever.
SO. I am heading in to this holiday season - prepared to TAKE A BREAK. To put my feet up. To enjoy the company I am with and to let little things slide. To have more cider! To walk in the snowscapes.The girls learned a rhyme that they repeat often through the day, "you get what you get and you don't get upset." I have no idea where they learned it. But, I like it. I will adopt it.... "You get (done) what you get (done) and you don't get upset."
***The deadline for ordering things from my ARTshop (to get before Christmas) has PASSED. You can still order - but I have no idea for estimated delivery times. I'm sorry and I wish I could make it happen for everyone, but I can't. If you ordered BEFORE the deadline - then I will be driving over the border tomorrow to make it happen.***
Today: extra coffee, extra print packing, extra holiday tunes, extra gift wrapping and extra Pilates. I'm feeling retrospective... as usual for the last two weeks of the year. And what a year it was.
