OH NO! One Week Until Christmas!!

One week until Christmas!!!

Wow, time flies and holidays sure can sneak up on you!  That’s exactly what Christmas has done to me this year. Christmas is in exactly 1 week from today & I haven’t baked any cookies, decorated or purchased any gifts yet…ugh!  All I can say is Thank God for Amazon Prime :-)!

By the way, the beautiful decorations in this post are iPhone photos of my sister, Barbara’s house!  Her place is beautifully decorated whereas mine, you wouldn’t even think we celebrated Christmas :-(. We’re working on it this week….better late than never right?

Amazon Prime to the rescue!

Ok, so I have always been a procrastinator, for as long as I can remember.  Many years, I would have to be getting pushed and shoved around the stores during this last week of Christmas.  Not this year!  It’s true, I haven’t purchased any gifts yet, but I’m skipping the craziness & the lines & I’m just going right over to Amazon!

Now, if you know me & read my blog, you know I like writing and I always have.  I used a diary/journal for many of my teenage years because I found it to be very therapeutic to write things down, everything that upset me or angered me, all of my hopes & dreams, even my first date & first kiss.

Because I gained so much from having a journal, I am a strong advocate for all teenagers to have one.  On Amazon, they have several types of journals, many different types & colors.  Most can be received before Christmas!  Check this one out:

So, here is your checklist for this coming week:

  1. Decorate for the holidays, if you haven’t already done so. 
  2. Get those Christmas cards mailed out if you still do that.
  3. Volunteer your time to help others
  4. Count your blessings & thank God for everything
  5. Bake those cookies!

7. Remember the best gift of all is time!  Spend a lot of fun, loving quality time with friends and family!

Merry Christmas everybody!!
