I feel more "in control" this holiday season than in past years. Not sure why? Thought I had most of my holiday shopping done but now I am second guessing myself. Go figure. Guess it is common with Type A personalities or maybe I am just a little OCD. Either way it all gets done. Holiday cards arrived today. YES, I just may get them done before January 2015. Gift knitting remains in the queue but I am even getting that done. YEAH! I love the holidays and try so hard not to make them stressful in order to enjoy family and friends and the sounds of the season. Take a minute to hear the music and enjoy the wonder. It comes but once a year.
