Where is the time going? It's almost Christmas, aaaarrgh!!! Have any of you thought about Christmas presents yet? Yeah, I've thought about them, but that's all. Every year I say I'm going to be organised and do my Christmas shopping throughout the year. But does it ever happen? Of course not - me, that organised? Come on... But there are people on this planet who are that organised and I am in total awe.
Don't get me wrong, I'm very organised at work. I know exactly what I'm doing for the day, how long it may take me and I am scrupulous about leaving my work station tidy without patient charts all over the place. But...that's at work. When it comes to my life out of work - forget it! Too many other things get in the way and I would much rather do something more exciting and on the spur of the moment than be organised! Of course, when Christmas is suddenly a few days away I panic, which makes me then rush out and spend much more that I had originally planned to and - well, you see what I mean. It's a vicious circle - or what goes around comes around!!
However, I do have a few more weeks so maybe, just maybe, I might do something about getting one or two gifts next week. Oh wait, isn't the car payment due then? Damn, just when I thought I had it all worked out...
What have you got planned for Christmas? Have you started Christmas shopping yet and if you're one of those people who have actually finished their Christmas shopping in September, then may Santa's sleigh backfire and send a mountain of very cold snow down your neck!
For those who live in the southern hemisphere, may reindeer thump across your roof when you have had too many Christmas drinks! So there!!
