Are you ready?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
For Christmas? I'M NOT!... Well I have everything wrapped, just have to put bows on everything when I bring it out tomorrow night. I'm just not..... ready.... does that make sense? Or at least I don't feel like it..
Last week I went through all the kids clothes and toys and donated everything they have outgrown. I have also cleaned my house from top to bottom...a few times and the turkey is defrosting as we speak. I seem prepared.... I look prepared.... why don't I FEEL prepared? Maybe I'm just not ready for it to be over with

What about ya'll?

I rushed to wrap Hubby's gifts yesterday. I was so made to see the onion soup cups were all broken. I hate Amazon! We still have to wrap the 'rents. I haven't done the laundry yet either. I have to run over to mom's to set-up for tomorrow later on. The more I think about it, the less motivation I have. LoL

I'm done too... I'm just not "ready".... Maybe it's that I'm exhausted and hate to see it just fly by... All this work for it to be said and done in less then an hour of unwrapping

Ahhh...yea that's a big difference there...

I'm never ready for Christmas....cause then the day flies by quickly and I'm left wondering why it took me so to get everything together.

I feel the same way is you....

Does anybody ever get the feeling at the last minute that you didnt get enough for somebody? I definitely did about my dad.
post #11 of 24
Yes, I'm all ready. I've had everything done for a while now, the shopping, wrappping, etc. I just bought a few things at the grocery store yesterday, I don't do any cooking or baking, besides the easy pull-apart cookies I'll make tomorrow. I'm just enjoying relaxing and enjoying the holidays, I hate running around trying to get everything finished and just so, I think it's the older I get the more I like to just take it easy and sit back and relax! It does go by so quickly though.

Yes, I do sometimes feel this way. Of course, they always tell me I got them way too much!

I'm not ready at all I have to work all night tonight- from 1:30-9ish) and I have to work 10-6 tomorrow- on Christmas Eve of all days. I haven't even started baking anything at all....I still have 3 presents to wrap, and haven't stuffed any stockings. This really sucks- and my jerk of a boss isn't going to let me have 3 days off in between Christmas and New Years to go visit Colins family after he told me he would. He has me working Christmas Eve, New Years Eve, and New Years Day I think i'm going to come up with something catchy like the RotoVirus on those days Colin and I were planning on going to Mobile and say forget work on those days! They're not giving me any time off at all and it's frusterating during the holidays. I'm definitely not ready for Christmas at the moment.

No gifts or decorating for me, but I am doing cleaning. I like to have my place clearn for the holidays regardless of whether I'm doing anything special for them or not. Still have to do 3 loads of laundry and finish mopping my floors and clean off my computer station.

Not quite. I have some presents to wrap, and the tree has to be put up. Otherwise, I think/hope everything is under control.
post #22 of 24
My tree is now up and gifts wrapped under it, I have done about half the cleaning, and like natalie_ca hasve 3 loads of laundry left to do as well as some cleaning.

All that is really left is braving the 24hr supermarket tonight for groceries.

I am kind of ready. We are doing Christmas at my sisters and it always feels like you are afraid to touch anything because she is so particular she doesn't just make people take their shoes off she makes them leave their shoes outside. And her mother in law will be there and I don't really like to be around alot of people at once.
